Doing something right


Gotta make this quick today because I need to finish getting ready for work, but...

I must be doing something right because when I stepped on the scale it said that I have lost 10.5 lbs since week 1!

Now, my weight can fluctuate like 5 whole lbs in one day and I just finished my period, so I do take this with a grain of salt. However, after taking all of that into account, I am positive that I can say that I have lost some weight for sure.

Looks like I'm on the right track.

Goals-
1. Cut it out with the soda and get back to water (my biggest struggle this last week)
2. Use the extra time from getting out of work early this week to exercise and clean, not just blog, stalk Joe Mac, and watch tv.
3. Cook actual
meals this week.

and now I have to run!
Thanks for the support!!!!

Congrats on the weight loss! I lost a whole .5 pounds this week, probably from walking through Boston all day! haha

Great job!

I've found that I need to weigh myself at the same time of the day in order to get an accurate weight loss number. I fluctuate throughout the day, too.

And I LOVE ice cold water. It gives me the same punch as soda, so it was easier to give up the bubbly stuff.

Way to go!! I hear you on the water thing...I too am trying to lose weight, not just in theory this time either! (haha)

I wish water was an yummy on the taste buds. I don't like the flavored water...I like the soda pop! So far, I have only had maybe 1-2 pops a week, which is a vast improvement from before!

Best of luck...sounds like you are on your way!!
