Pinch me...I think I'm dreaming

I don't usually do weekly weigh in reports...I weigh myself every day, and if the number changes, I update my ticker and move on.

But...this week...I have lost 4.5 lbs. I can't hardly believe it. Last Friday I weighed in at 198.5 and I was so excited because it meant 80lbs down, and onederland! Today, 1 week later, I weigh 194. I haven't had this big of week in soooo long. I feel like shouting for the world to hear...I am sooo excited about my week.

So...Now I am trying to figure out what I did I can keep this up.
There are 2 things I did different this week.
1st thing, instead of doing my exercise by doing workouts to tapes like Zumba and biggest loser, instead I have either run, outside, a little over a mile. Or I have also started using my Elliptical machine. I am finding by doing these things I am working out more consistently, and harder...and I love it.
The 2nd thing I have done different this week is I have gone back to eating my fruits and veggies...and I really think these things have made a big difference in my weight loss this week.
Now...while I wish I could lose this amount every week...I know that is unrealistic...but boy oh boy..I lost it this week and I am going to enjoy this feeling!

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!


  1. Fantastic weight loss this week, well done you!

  2. Ahhhhh...fruits and vegetables! I'm always trying to get more of those in.

    You are doing FANTASTICALLY well. Your numbers mirror mine, except you are about 20 lbs. ahead of me. I started at 280 as well. It is such an inspiration to see someone accomplishing the same goals I am shooting for.

  3. can you send some of your pixie dust my way to sprinkle on my scale.. you are doing incredibly wonderfuly fantastic

  4. I dropped a ton after struggling so hard to get under 200. I think I either really lost the weight earlier and just took a while to show up. I don't know if stress or somethign that caused me to retain water or what, but I love it!

  5. Holy crap - that is so awesome!!!!
