Weigh In and Weekend Update

Today's Numbers:
Starting Weight: 170 lbs
Last Weigh In: 155.5 lbs
Today's Weigh in: 153.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 2.3 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 16.8 lbs
Goal Weight: 135 lbs

Isn't that awesome considering that this was 4th of July weekend!!!!

The sacrifices are paying off and I don't even feel deprived. I love what I eat. I plan what I eat and I wake up early to get my exercise in. Time permitting, I even walk in the evening. I am so proud of myself!!

I definitely see my temporary goal of 149....and I see it next week. I need to stay focused this week, continue eating right and be religious about my exercise. There is alot of crap not going right in my life right now, but having this part of my nutrition being in control makes everything be ok and makes me think that we need to just roll with the punches and trust in the Lord to provide whatever we need.

Life is good today =)

  1. You're doing great!!

    You should post this on facebook...maybe you'll get more comments that way??

  2. hahahah, maybe I should. If it helps anyone, its worth it.

    I love writing this, no matter what !

  3. Dieting without a lifestyle change is like patching a flat tire! And Girl... the way I see it you have totally removed the problem tire and replaced it with a brand new one... one that it well on its way! Congrats on all of your determination, it is definitely paying off... You can certainly be an inspiration for others... Keep up the good work! Love, Arleen

  4. Thanks Arleen. You are lucky that you have never had a weight problem. It sucks! I can't wait to get to maintenance and finally learn how to eat normal and healthy.

  5. Ohhhh my dear friend... of course I have... your memory must not be working properly LOL... but it's true that it is all about maintaining and learning how to eat and enjoy food in a different way! I know that you can do it... I am seeing a whole new outlook in you and it's a good one so keep it up! Attitude is half the battle. Take care and stay in touch... Arleen

  6. Really? you were heavy? I cannot even remember that. You always seemed to be at a healthy weight. lol I guess it is all relative lol

    We need to get together some day with Diane and go out to have a healthy dinner!!

    someday soon! xoxo

  7. LOL... I guess it is! But trust me... you are doing great... Like I've said before... I see a different Melinda... one who is determined to make this a life change not a diet... and that makes a world of difference. You will make it to your GOAL and you will stay there! :) I agree... we talked about getting together and have not yet done that... let me know a date so we can plan something... you tell me where you think we can go for a healthy dinner! Look forward to it! Have a great weekend! Keep up the good work!
