Weigh In - Week 8

..... down .4 pounds....

Nothing major but I'm pleased with it... its in the right direction, so I'll take it! I'm particularly proud because I only ate one "normal" dinner at home this past week, and that was last night. I went out to dinner four nights, went to a friend's place for dinner one night, and then had company over for dinner one night (and my friend brought some delicious - but not exactly healthy - food with her).

In addition my running routine has hit a few hurdles because for some reason twice last week, I was hit with terrible cramps after one mile and was only able to make it a mile and a half. Yesterday, I was finally able to get 3.4 miles in again but it was with great struggle. I got cramps again and also was having trouble breathing, so I was literally going at a turtle pace for the last mile. But it is what it is, and hopefully I'll be able to persist through it and keep at the running.

Thanks for the continued support and encouragement.


  1. Progress is progress as far as I'm concerned!!!!!
    Keep up the good work lovely lady :)

  2. every little loss of ".something" is wonderful! I heard something in my meeting last week that I wanted to share (and if you've heard this before than I apologize for repeating): When we get frustrated with the little losses we encounter look at the total weight you've lost on the journey so far. Go home and find something that is that total weight number. Carry it around for a bit...it's pretty heavy, huh?

    I was so inspired by this. I was down .6 this past week and I was a little bummed. Then I got home and picked up my 8-pound dumbbell (i've lost 8.8 since I started - YAY) and walked around with it for a few minutes. It was HEAVY! Now whenever I get discouraged or when i want something that doesn't fit in my plan for the day, I just remember that dumbbell ;)

    I hope you can get back on your running game soon!!!

  3. Reading your posts are so inspiring to me! I'm trying to get some sort of a workout routine established. Food is my weakness. I have a hard time restraining myself. But I figure I should at least make myself earn it. ☺ I used to be on the cross-country team back in high school, but 10 years is a long time ago and I am no where near being in the shape I used to be. I've been trying to walk at least 2 miles everyday. And I'll admit, I definitely feel better.

    Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you. It's encouraging to read about other people on their journeys. It motivates me to keep on track with mine.

  4. I am totally impressed you managed to lose weight with all the outside meals! That is so hard to do. Keep it up!!!

  5. Great job!!! :) Especially about losing while eating out... I can't keep myself away from the fries.


Thanks for your comments, I love to hear your thoughts! Have a blessed day!
