Weekly Weigh-in….

 

Well I just can’t go to camp without checking my weight. I was going to and hope for the best but it is Weekly Weigh-in Hosted by Marvelous Mommy so I had to.

200#, goal #1 met, I made the 200 mark before the end of August. YEAH!!! So all my wishy washiness is still paying off. I’m excited guys because that means, with lucky that is, my next weigh-in will be in the 100’s. I’m excited, so very excited. For more the 25 years I haven’t been under the 200 mark.

I will walk a lot while at camp, everything is far away from each place and I’ll bring my pedometer just to make sure I’m getting my miles in. I will be weighing in the week of the 9th and I’ll do a new set of measurements too.

So with that did and done for now, it’s onward and upwards (or for the scale, downwards I hope). Remember I will be gone from Sunday the 1st to Monday the 9th but I’ll come back with a bang and start my next goal which is 10 lbs gone by Halloween and the last 10 lbs gone by Christmas. I don’t know if it’s possible because it has taken me 8 months to lose 25 lbs and that leaves just 4 months for the last 20 but I will give it my best and see. My goals aren’t written in stone, more like chalk lines on the concrete but this is a life style change not a real diet so if it takes a bit longer and stays off for the rest of my life, well I will be a happy camper.

Take care my friends. Good luck to you all. I’m off to check on everyone progress, thoughts and ideas. I so love having you guys there for me. Thank you so much. Now have a great rest of the week and God Bless you all.

You so rock!! That is my goal. 200. I can't WAIT to be in the 1's. It's been since I was a teenager. Not going quite as well here but I am hoping for some progress. Good for you though, keep it up!

JULIE!! That's great that you hit your 200 pound mark! How exciting! You will definitely be in the 100's in your next weigh in, especially since you are about to leave to walk all over who knows where rounding up boy scouts! haha.

Keep up the awesome work!! And you are so right that losing it slow is the absolute best way to keep it off for good!! AND it makes me so very happy to hear you say you are not 'dieting' but making a life style change!!!! Dieting doesn't work and you are definitely ahead of the game just by realizing that!

Have a great week at camp and thanks for your comment!!
