Weigh-in Wednesday

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansI have to admit, I was really hoping to have lost a bit more by this point.

I know that's focusing on the wrong thing, but you know how it is. Whether it's a strict diet program or a Bible study, we're still in it because we want to lose weight!!

I keep trying to tell myself that the weight loss is just the bonus feature, but realistically, it's still one of two primary goals!

BUT... I AM down another 1.2, which finally earns me this:

Running Man Sneakers


I really hate that I gained so much at the beginning of this Sisterhood challenge because I've actually lost just over 9 pounds in the last three weeks and yet I've only just this week earned my 5# sticker. Ah well, lesson learned! Stop bingeing over holidays!!

And I really shouldn't complain, because of the diets and "systems" I've tried, this one is by far the easiest ~ DESPITE having three days without solid food except for supper each week. I'm looking forward to several more stickers before the end of the year!

How 'bout you?

Yay! Congrats on the 5lb sticker! Don't get down on yourself for gaining early - it's about losing now, and you're on your way.

One simple strategy that worked for me in the past is to ask myself two things every time I go to the kitchen for something. 1) Am I really hungry or just bored? Often I don't get to the second question because the answer here is bored, and I go find something else to do besides eating. 2) What is the best thing for me to have? Usually the answer to #2 is an apple or yogurt or something...I don't always have the best thing, but more often than not I do.

Congrats on your button! I think you've done excellent this challenge! Remember, the more slowly it comes off, the easier it is to keep off!

Congrats on hitting the 5# mark. And the goal to be healthier, and the by-product of that is lost weight! Keep up the good work.
