So, finally I am seeing some progress in the weight challenge. Well, to be honest, I was having things I shouldn't have, but still.

So, this week's weigh in, and I lost 5 lbs ! yipppeeee! this will keep me motivated to continue on the right track. I was hoping for 5 lbs this week and need to do 5 lbs each of the remaining 3 weeks as well, to hit my personal first goal. 16 lbs down in 5 weeks! not fabulous numbers, but still in the right direction.

Boy can I feel a big difference already too! I am able to move around alot more with out being so tired, winded or knees hurting. So this is also in the right direction.

The rest of the High School skinnies were not so successful. JD only lost 1 lb, Jessica zero and Wendy forgot to weigh herself this am (right). But that's ok, YEA ME! I am still 3% behind jd, but within range to catch him if he continues to slack off. That $400.00 is in my reach!

welcome, welcome my friend. Why don't we shorten the week so that you come around much more often.

Looking forward to a busy, but enjoyable weekend with friends, gardening and the dogs.

Fridays can never come quick enough.

the Numbers Game....

So, it's already been one month since the weight contest and diet started. Of course, the one guy on the team is winning, as he has been trying and well, guys always lose more than woman, let's face it!

This week, I lost 6 lbs! exciting exciting, I know, but actually, 4 of those were the 4 lbs that I gained last week when I whooped it up and ate peeps for the week prior to easter, as my main diet (trust me, the peep diet does NOT work!).

11 lbs down in 1 month. Since I have been 1/2 assed at it, that is great. I would have gained weight if not on this challenge, so I guess that's a good one too. But why , oh why, can I not keep up with this correctly.

This week I will, that's a promise. We are over the hump now and into the home stretch, I only have 4 more weigh ins and need to lose some considerable weight AND also could use that 400.00!
