Get Fit Fridays

Let me start by saying that I tried to get a picture of myself.  It didn't go well.  My hair is cute, but very red.  It's going to take some getting used to, but I do like it.  (I promise, Jen!  Everyone say "Hi" to Jen, my stylist and blog reader!)  Here's the rest of the news....

How long have I been doing this again?
1 week

Weight Loss This Week/Total Weight Loss
5.8 pounds!!!/5.8 pounds!!!

New pants?
I am thisclose to fitting into the on-sale pants I bought last month!  I can't wait to be able to wear them and the rest of my old wardrobe.   
UPDATE:  I am currently wearing the on-sale pants!!  I tried them on this morning and they fit!

How am I sleeping?
One of my biggest concerns before I started focusing on what I was eating was that I was sleeping all the time before I started this.  I was so tired no matter how much I slept, but I had zero energy.  I was concerned for several reasons, none more so than I didn't want to end up in another cycle of depression. This week I've still been getting lots of sleep, but since I am eating better, I've noticed that I do feel better, which I think will make a difference as I continue!

Best Moment This Week:
Weigh-in!  I thought I'd only lost three pounds or so.  I had no clue it would be almost six!  Looks like I might actually lose 10 pounds before vacation.

Activity: The one downside to this week was that I didn't get exercise like I had hoped to do.  It's been too cold and rainy and I just haven't bothered to work out with a DVD.  I'm hoping to kick that into high gear this week.

I really thought I would miss things, but I don't.  I think it helps that I can pretty much have whatever I want as long as I stay within my points.  And that's been pretty easy so far, but I have a lot of points to burn because of my weight and age (I will lose points as I lose weight).

What I miss: I do miss sodas a little.  If I'm really dying for one I know I can have it, but so far I haven't had to.  (And before you start in, know that I HATE diet soda.  So gross!)

What I am looking forward to: 
Fitting into my clothes again!  I feel like it could really happen now, and it's been a while since I had that kind of hope when it came to my weight.


  1. Yay! So much success! Keep up the good work.

  2. AW! Thanks, Mindee! I appreciate the encouragement.

  3. Your doing well!!! Keep up the momentum!

  4. You are doing great! Keep it up. I've been doing the WW on-line for 10 weeks and have lost 17.8 pounds. It's a very healthy way to lose weight. Just feeling more energetic and fitting into clothes I haven't been able to wear for a long time is worth it. Focus on those little improvements to keep the momentum going. I'll be following your progress.
