Monday Weigh In -Woo Hoo!

What? What did the scale say??? I better step on that thing again... and it STILL says...
That is a loss of 5.4 pounds since last Monday!
Whuh Huh?
I'm pretty surprised! I have been back on track,
but not as well as I should be doing...
I can't explain how I lost that much...
Mind Power? Positive thinking? Don't know lol,
but I'm happy!!! Wooo hoooooo!

Here's My Day:
Lunch: Tuna Sandwich with cheese, miracle whip and pepper rings on whole wheat, 7 garden salsa sunchips, 8 baby carrots with 1 1/2 tbs light ranch, Water
Snack: Oreo Klondike Bar
Dinner: Chips (about 15) and Cheese with taco meat, tomatoes, salsa and light sour cream, 6 oz pepsi
Snack: strawberry ice cream bar
Snack late: bowl of cocoa crispie cereal with 2% milk
Total Water: 40 oz
I don't know why I am eating so much ice cream... I need to get to the store and get those 100 calorie little sundea cups...
I eat to much light ranch, today I pretty much dipped everything in it during lunch. Something I might have to change... just not ready yet...

You'd think that a loss like that would mean a great eating day... but it didn't. It wasn't horrible, but definitely not where I need to be. If I want to be able to record a big loss on my official Friday weigh in, I am going to have to do better than today! I can...And I WILL!
This is the 3rd day in a row I got my 40 oz of water :) Instead of using my usual glass that holds 12 oz, I am using 2 20 oz bottles. One in the fridge cold and ready when I finish the first one. I even switch them if one gets warm. It's much easier for me to keep track of how much and easier to make myself finish it to get in that 40 :)

Treadmill: 26 minutes/ 1 mile   8 minutes of it with 2 LB weights
Crunches: 100 (50, 25, 25)

Having my Mom notice, made me decide to take another picture. I was going to post it on the side of the blog under my other one, but I don't really see enough difference. I think I can see it a little under my chin... and the little bit of tan I have left (from being burnt lobster red) doesn't hurt lol. But I will wait till I can see a bigger difference to post another on the side. Maybe I'll post one at 45 pounds lost :) For now, here's today's:

That is NOT my Mtn Dew lol.


  1. Wow, Tina! Your Mom is right, that IS noticeable! Good job!!! My hubby is also succeeding with major weight loss. He has lost about 38lb and people are really starting to comment. (About 20lb still to go). I am still losing a little myself, but Im also working out 4 times a week, so I am trying to eat enough to allow me to gain some muscles. Have a great day! xxoo

  2. Good lose Tina, congrats. Can you bottle your secret? You'd make a mint. There is definitely a change in your pictures. Hubby always says it makes him feel good when someone notices that there is some extra poundage gone. He's down almost 20 now so people are starting to notice it. I think the heavier you are the longer it takes people to actually realize there is a change. Our mind's eye gets a picture and it's difficult to see change. Most importantly though, do you see a change when you look in the mirror, that's where it counts. I'm proud of you girl, keep up the good work.

  3. Thank you both so much!

    I look in the mirror, and I think I can see it a little under my chin, but that's about it... and then I tell myself- well maybe it's only because I'm looking down more in pic from April... I don't know, maybe it's just hard for me to believe I look any different?

    BUT I do feel different, better :) I do feel my collar bone and other little things that let me know there is progress. Most importantly I can breath and my back feels a lot better already :)

    I wish I knew my own secret! I would do it EVERY week and I WOULD bottle it and give it away free to all LOL. Any secret I have isn't a secret because it's all right here in my blog. Everything I do :)
    I just feel lucky most of the time to tell you the truth!!!
