7 Pounds in 7 Weeks Weigh In

Okay friends, go grab your scales! Oh, some of you still don't have scales? Well, I bought the old fashioned kind for under $7 at Wal-Mart last week. The kids keep jumping on them to watch the numbers fly up and down which uncalibrates them (I'm sure that's a word!), so I am forever adjusting it back to zero, but hey, they work!

So, you don't have to tell your weight, but share with us how you did this week in the comments. We'll check back each Monday.

Okay, so I didn't lose a thing this week, but that's okay. I doubled my exercise which means I worked out in some way four times this week. I'm going to redefine my goals to walking four times and pilates 3 times in one week.

I'm also going to work harder at portion sizes this next week. I gave it a little try this week but mostly noted that I was overeating--hey, just being real here! I also stress ate once while trying to figure out some school planning on Saturday night.

Good news-I had to put a pair of pants in the garage sale pile as they were just too big! I did a little research and figured out that I've lost 14 pounds in 2009. Not a fast drop, but I'll take it and hopefully have a better number to show at the end of the year.

How about you, how'd you do?

Oooh you go, girl! Yes, still scaleless in seattle, but TOMORROW I am getting some. So, I'll have to be a week behind. :( But, dadgumit, I'm doin' this! I can tell I have lost some by the way the clothes fit, but seeing as I can't tell numerically, I'll just be a week late.

Keep droppin' em! Go Wendy! Its your birthday! *tootie roll dances*

Well, I have a scale but it must not be working as it is not saying what I wish! :) I am going to try harder-I must succeed as I want to (gasp) stop wearing this pair of maternity pants i'm still wearing!! (I am wearing regular clothes, it's just I don't want to buy any more "bigger" clothes) Like ya said just being real! :)
I'm proud of you Wendy! That is more than a pound a month that you have lost! I assume it is mostly due to cutting out sugar??
