the NOT so dreaded weigh in...

I peeked during the week. Couldn't resist. I knew I'd lost this week but was in for a shock how much. Infact I stepped on and off the scales at least ten times this morning. And moved the scales around thinking the floor must be uneven or some crap. But no. No matter where I put it it came out the same. 19.8 pounds firmly in the 19 stones, no longer skirting the dirty age. WHICH MAKES A LOSS OF FOUR POUNDS FOR THE WEEK.  Man that makes me happy. I gained a pound and stayed the same the last couple of weeks and I so felt that I was going to be stuck in a fucking rut but no I persevered this week. I must say this weeks loss goes to my pedometer! (I actually fell asleep with it clipped to my pj bottoms... if that isn't love....) I didn't make it to the gym all week (which had me super worried but just didn't have the time) but I was stepping like a...I  don't know.... a giant stepping machine that never stops stepping. This ten thousand steps a day thing is totally working for me. And food wise I was excellent too :D

Annnnnnnnnnnndddddddd..... not only did losing 4 pounds this week totally lift my spirits, I reached a weight loss target.  Well, a mini one. I never set it myself. But I got another slimming world sticker. I've lost a stone and a half. Well a pound over that actually. 1 stone and 8 pounds in total. 22 FRICKIN' POUNDS. I wanted to make it to twenty pounds gone for like three weeks. I feel like a weight has been lifted (pun intended) :D woohoo,

Also..... I managed to squeeze forty five minutes at the gym this morning and created my first salad of the year so far. I hate salad leaves. Any kind of leaves. But I was trying to make an effort in eating salads 'cause they're all healthy and shit. This one wasn't that great but I feel I deserve points for effort. It doesn't matter what combo I have with them. Or what salad dressing I have on it. I JUST DON'T LIKE SALAD LEAVES. I think I have made peace with salads today. Here's a picture of it anyways... its ginormous.

Woo-hoo! Great weight loss - well done you!

Mmm, that salad looks yummy to me. Hey, who says salads have to have leaves - leave em out if you don't like em and have all the other delicious salady stuff.

Keep up the hard work!

I'm giggling over the image of you snuggling up with your pedometer. Great image! You go woman!

Your salad looks yummy to me. I haven't made many yet. They're more appealing when it's warm out. Ya know?

Yippee on the 4 pounds and the mini milestone. That's soo fabulous!

First off YOU ROCK!


Secondly don't eat leaves. You can cut them up small & make into a slaw kind of food.

Or just cut up a bunch of other raw veggies as a salad.

You rock
You rock

Alright! I'm so very proud! (sniff) You're going to be so healthy and quite the babe, too. By the way, there's a new Zac Efron movie coming out. I think of you every time I see the commercial.

PS: I could totally take you where a sheep is concerned. I'm fat, hungry and mean! Grrr!

jo said...

WOW, fantastic! Way to go, girl!

I thought of you today when on accident I found my pedometer. I wonder if I even walk 1000 steps in a day (aside from my nightly walk.)

We're not close enough to sleep together yet, but maybe I'll warm up to it a bit. ;-)
