Weigh-in 1b...

My first weigh-in for the second Fat Olympics was due yesterday, and I have to say that I am quite proud of what I have accomplished so far. Now, I should say right up front that my method for losing weight this week was probably not the most healthy. But, I REALLY needed to see that it truly is possible for the scale to move down. If you have ever struggled with your weight then you know what I'm talking about.


1. I wore a pair of jeans on Friday night that I have not worn since May 2009 (at the very beginning of my pregnancy)...and I could even breathe and everything.

2. I stuck to my guns all week and didn't cheat once...until Friday. Who can turn down a GIANT monster cookie on a Friday afternoon?

3. I got some form of exercise for at least 20 minutes twice a day. Pulling a child in a wagon through a mole infested yard counts, right?

4. I drank and drank and drank and DRANK water...and even took time out of my busy day to run to the bathroom.

5. I lost 10 pounds last week. Yea me.

I have pulled within 5 pounds of my first goal. Amazing huh? Now, if I can just keep my body from staging a revolt next week. You know how it goes....you follow the same regimen two weeks in a row and loose 5 pounds one week and gain 10 the next. That's the part I'm dreading. Well, that and having to pull Rachel's wagon up a mole infested hill again.


  1. You go Girl!!!!!!!

  2. Stopping by from SITS. Great job!

  3. I just ate a red velvet cupcake. Don't give in like me!

  4. In the past day, I've had to say no to Althea's homemade strawberry shortcake, giant cookies from the best cookie place in town, and my favorite chocolate chip bars....I feel my determination to not give in growing weaker and weaker and my fear of failure growing stronger and stronger.
    Dieting sucks.
    But...you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep on going! Good luck!

  5. YAY!!! I am SO proud of you. 10lbs?!? You must be some sort of super mom! I agree, sweets are very hard to deny for me too. Steal your resolve with your results. Everytime you eat something healthy think about it thinning you out and giving you the results you want. When you work out, go for the burn, when it hurts, it works. Always visualize the hard parts as a good thing because they are giving you the results you REALLY want. Sweets are temporary happiness and long term set-backs.

    Please smile and know that you are an awesome woman who is beautiful and in the middle of acheiving your dreams!

  6. WOW Ang!! Way to go! :) So proud of you! and pulling Rachel UPhill!!! You rock! Keep up the good work! You can and WILL do this!!!!!

    Are there enough exclamation points in there for you? Sorry, I might have gotten a little carried away.
