Weigh-in Wednesday - I feel skinny

I worked hard this past week, controlled my eating and exercised a lot. I decided on my goals, to get focused and I was excited for this morning.
Kids woke up at 7:45am, WOW I got to sleep in, so I was happy with that. I was nervous to see my number today, so when I finally got on the scale I took a deep breath and hoped for the best. I was 196lbs last week and was really hoping for 2lbs weight loss this week.

I looked down and there it was 192.4lbs!!!!!! I was 3.6lbs down from last week, passing my weekly goal of 2lbs and ALMOST hitting the 20lbs weight loss mark! I'm in the low 190's, almost at the 180's, OMG I just can't believe it! I haven't been here in over two years, since I was pregnant with my first son.

I honestly feel so good about it. I feel skinny LOL Sounds silly saying that at 192lbs but I do, I feel smaller than I have in a while. So now I'm highly motivated to possibly hit 189lbs next week. If I just focus, keep on track with my eating and exercise I know I will see 189lbs next week.

I'd love to hear about other people's goals, successes and challenges. I also think it wold be cool if anyone else wants to weigh in on a Wednesday with me, to keep motivated?

Now I need to revise my goals:
192lbs by November 4th - Done! (I won't say I've lost 20lbs until I see 192.0lbs)
190lbs by November 11th 10% goal - 189lbs by November 4th

If you're on the same journey as me stay focused, you're strong and you can do this! The rewards will be wonderful!


  1. You're doing great! I've been where you are and it's hard but you can do it!

  2. Thank you Julie. Your story definitely made me feel like I can do this! I have 52.4lbs to go!
