75 lbs down and gone for a week!

I hit 75lbs down this morning! and weighing in at 203 means I am almost to onederland! and I can't wait to hit that one!

My hubby and I leave this morning to take 18 kids from our youth group to camp. I will have 10 teenage girls in my dorm room all week. So it's going to be a week with little sleep, lots of activities and camp food. So I am nervous about gaining this week....I have already been told it's a lot of pasta, pizza, chicken nuggets..things like that. And I also wont have time or the means to exercise....I am hoping to get up early and walk, but we will see......I am bringing some protein bars, fiber bars, plain almonds, dried pineapple and pretzel sticks with...I really really really hope I don't gain...and I am still able to lose this week! I will be strong! and stay away from the junk!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. Congrats!!! Like always I am right behind you - 2 pounds til 75.

    You might be surprised at what this week will bring - as long as you bring your snacks. Being out in the fresh air always seems to help and camp activities might not be exercise, but I bet you will be on your feet a lot and moving around. I read somewhere that standing burns 10 times as many calories as sitting (even if you are doing nothing). I always find myself starving at camp though so make sure you bring a lot of snacks to avoid that pizza :)

  2. Fantastic results....just do the best you can. I have had a week like that with sick kids at home and can't wait to get back to better eating!!! Have fun!!!

  3. I just read your blog from the beginning and you've had quite a ride. It amazes me how many plateaus you've had, yet hear you are 75 lbs down. It's helpful to know that there are going to be times when I won't lose weight, but I shouldn't get discouraged. I can still be successful even if I'm not constantly losing. Hope you have the energy to post when you get back from your trip. Sounds like a wonderful adventure. Can't wait to hear about it.
