Weigh in Wednesday

Finally, more than a ONE pound lol!! Perhaps this is just the way my body works.. One week lose nothing the next 3.. Ridiculous!! lol Anyhow I am under 250 and 3 pounds away from 40 lbs woo hoo!! Would be so great to hit my 40lb mark by next week, but I won't hold my breath lol. I have decided however, to post a before and after picture when I hit the 50 lb mark. So 13 lbs away.

Please feel free to leave a comment with your success or failures or link up to my blog with Mr. Linky!!

Ha...I'm not sure what I just did by adding my name and URL :)

Great job on the weight loss! 3 lbs in a week is super!

A little side note...I did not know you were only 4 years older than me. I guess when I was a kid I only knew you as Jen and Johnny's "older" sister...ha! Don't worry...I always thought you were cool :)

hahaha adding your name links your blog up to my blog so that you can WEIGH IN but Beth you dont' need to weigh lol Thanks for the encouragement.!!!

Oh isn't that funny.. how the years seem to close the gap the older we get? Turning 30 this year.. has been a big milestone for me.. still can't quite grasp the number haha

Hi, Tara. I've been in and out of town and on an off my diet :(. I'm so proud of your success! Great job! I can't wait to see your before and after pictures. I gotta get back to it. I have a really big goal to meet and I'm going to run out of time if I don't get serious. Thanks for inspiring me. I'm working on recommitting.

Ooops...I realized that after I read some of your earlier posts…haha! Well, I am trying to be healthier anyway. We were eating a lot of frozen foods and it just isn’t healthy. Even though I don’t put on weight easily, I want to make sure we have healthy eating habits. I was buying a lot of Smart Ones dinners for my lunches just because they are easy and small portions. But, I am trying to get away from the “ready made” stuff. We just got a Food Saver and I am hoping that I can start cooking ahead so that we have stuff that is quick for dinner, but not fast food or frozen dinners. I can’t eat much meat at all. Meat was what caused all my stomach issues before I had my gallbladder out…I still get sick even now if I eat meat. So…meal planning is hard.

...and yes, you're right about the age thing. Haha...that is so funny!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
