Week 27 Results

Week 27 Results (Mar 22 - 28, 2012):

Weight Loss or Gain: -1.5lbs
Total Weight Loss (since beginning): -26lbs

Yipppeeeeeeeeee!!!  I hit (and passed) the 25lb mark.  I didn't think my loss would be such a good one this week.  It isn't that I overindulged or anything this week but a 1.5lb loss during a week where I just ate like normal and worked out twice didn't really warrant such a loss.  I was thinking that maybe I would stay the same or lose 0.5lb.  Oh, I should also mention that I am bloated like anything today so when I stepped on the scale, I was thinking that I may actually be up a bit.

In any case, I am super excited.  Yipppppeeeeeee!!

Week 25 & 26 Results

Boy, oh boy, am I ever bad at promises.  I promised a few times now to start posting more regularly and I have gone back on my word.  I am sorry to anyone who may even be reading my blog.  Somedays I feel like I have a lot to say but I am nowhere near a computer but other days I am at a computer and I have nothing to say.  I'll try to be better.

In any case, I have two weeks of results to give you:

Week 25 Results (Mar 8 - 14, 2012):

Weight Loss or Gain: -1lb
Total Weight Loss (since beginning): -23.5lbs

Week 26 Results (Mar 15 - 21, 2012):

Weight Loss or Gain: -1lb
Total Weight Loss (since beginning): -24.5lbs

Wow, I am very close to the 25lb mark and I am quite excited.  I am a bit hesitant though getting too excited for last week's loss because when I stepped on the scale yesterday morning, I was actually up 0.5lbs.  I don't understand how someone's weight can fluctuate so quickly (1.5lbs in one day).  Oh well, I'll take it!  

Maybe next week I'll change things up a bit (eating or exercising) to see if I can get down at least another 0.5lbs to reach the 25lb mark.  That sounds like such a nice number.

Week 24 Results

Week 24 Results (Mar. 1 - 7, 2012):

Weight Loss or Gain: -1.5lbs
Total Weight Loss (since beginning): -22.5lbs

Well....ya-frickin'-hoo!!!  Woohoo!!  Doing a happy dance over here.  I am very excited with that loss.  Actually, I peeked at the scale 2 days ago and I was actually down 2lbs but I went out for a work lunch yesterday and had an incredibly delicous lunch (pitas, tzatziki & greek salad).  It sounds healthy enough but I had tonnes of pitas (too many carbs for what I am used to) and the greek salad was quite oily and very salty (much more than usual).  It doesn't matter though because 1.5lbs is awesome. 

I am making another small goal for myself.  I want to lose another 7.5lbs between now and the end of April.  That is 7 weeks so it is doable but I am not sure if I can do it. 

Why the new little goal?  Well, some girlfriends and I are making a trip down to Vegas for 4 nights at the end of April and it would be really nice if I could have lost 30lbs in total by the time I go. 

I am not going to put too much pressure on myself though because I hate disappointment but I am going to try.  Wish me luck!

Week 23 Results

Week 23 Results (Feb. 23-29, 2012):

Weight Loss or Gain: -0.5lbs
Total Weight Loss (since beginning): -21lbs

I am happy with the small loss because I thought last week's visit with my sister-in-law would have caught up with me but I am not ecstatic because I have been at the -21lbs before (just 2 weeks ago).  When I hit another loss, I'll be much happier.
