Weigh-In Wednesday

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans Well.

I'm not sure how this happened.

I'm, ummm....

DOWN. THREE. POUNDS!!!

I don't really understand, but maybe reviewing the plans for this past week will give us some clues. My plan for this last week was:
  • remember to make sure my stomach growls at least twice a day llll llll ll (of 14)
  • complete week 3 of the 100/200/200 challenge (done)
  • at least 3 walks or 30-minute workouts lll (all walks again)

The previous week, I got in twice as many walks as my goal because hubby was home all week. This week, I barely got in my goal number because not only was hubby gone basically the entire time, but I had my oldest daughter home all week due to illness, so I couldn't even go on kindergarten days. :(

My biggest victory this week ~ by FAR ~ was in the snacking department, though portion control at mealtimes was a close second. I binged last Tuesday night, but other than that, I snacked only ONCE this past week! And all I had that night was a peanut butter & honey tortilla roll-up (made w/a large whole wheat tortilla). That's IT!! The ONLY evening snack in the last SEVEN days!!!! Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with the results. So happy, in fact, I may be tempted to try that strategy again! ;)

Unfortunately, I realized this morning was the final weigh-in for this challenge and while 3 lbs in one week is almost HALF my entire goal this time 'round, I actually lost just under half my 8-lb goal. Not too happy about that, but at least I'm still headed in the right direction ~ and finally workin' up some steam, too!!

Love the cartoon! I may have to steal that :) Great job on the loss this week. One of the gals said last week that our bodies really are in charge. We don't know how they are going to react to what we are changing, but something is definitely working for you. Keep up the good work!

Tammi, you did an amazing job!! Way to go on the 3 pound loss! WOOT!

It's awesome to look back and figure out what worked! By not snacking you were able to lose a great deal, so it just goes to show you that all that snacking was adding up to a lot of extra calories. Keep up the amazing work and get ready for the next challenge at the Sisterhood! It's going to be SO FUN!!!

Right on, Tammi!! That evening snacking is a killer, which is why I try to avoid it at all costs. You achieved a HUGE accomplishment this week, and I hope you continue seeing these good results!
