Weigh In Day - Weekend Update

So are you curious to see how I did this week??

Starting Weight: 170
Last Weeks Weigh In: 167.5
Today's Weight: 164.5
Weight Loss This Week: 3 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 5.5 lbs
Goal Weight: 135

Yaaaaaaaaaay..I AM IN THE ZONE!!!!!!

If you are wondering what zone that is.... it's the zone where one of the most important things in my life right now is LOSING WEIGHT!! It's the zone where you plan your eating strategy and you follow it. It's the zone where you do not starve and you do not fill up like a fat pig. It's the zone where you are happy to sweat and exercise. It's the zone where you are looking forward to jumping on the scale. I AM IN THE ZONE!!!!!!

Not only am I happy that I had a good weight loss. Herman, my husband, is weighing less than he has in years!!! He started out at 275 and since he is not working now... he is not eating out and he is only eating what I give him. He is now weighing.....drum rolls..........258!!!!!! I am so proud of him!!! He lost 17 pounds and that is without exercising. He is so motivated now, that today he started his exercise plan and he finally refilled his diabetic pills and is on his weigh to a new and improved Herman!!!

Can I say how much easier it is to eat right when everyone in the household is on the plan!!

Food Journal for today:

All Bran Cereal and milk = 4 points
Grapes and String Cheese - 2 points
Bagel Thin, turkey ham, lite provolone, tomato = 3 points

I will also be walking for 50 minutes tonight.

Are YOU in the Zone? Want to join me? If you want to do it, you CAN do it....just put your mind to it and Do It!!!! NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!

  3. Holy cow! 3 lbs in a week?! Awesome. I'm motivated! I stayed within my points today. Gotta achieve that goal!

  4. Great job, Melinda....you certainly seem to be on the right track now...and you should set an example for the people going to WW at work!!!! You are doing a great job as the coordinator and motivator...but you need to step up to the plate and show them you can indeed WALK THE TALK!!!

  5. I can't believe Papi has lost all that weight! Wow!!

    You're doing great - even Jeff noticed you lost weight! :)

  6. Hope the stuff at mom's house didn't make a dent on your diet...I think you did well...this is the hardest part of losing...when you have to go to parties and you are surrounded by all that tempting stuff!!!

  7. When you are in the ZONE, it isn't even tempting. I tasted everything and I did my exercise. NOTHING will stop me now!!!! LOL


I love comments, whether they are praises or "get your ass in gear" or quotes or a motivational tid bit....JUST SAY IT AS IT IS!!!
