Weekly Weigh In...

I LOST 3 LBS!  Yea me!  This is really working.  I am so happy.  When I started trying to lose weight in January, I went on an intense detox.  I lost 10 lbs.  But, I hated eating that way.  Of course, detox isn't meant to be a long term way of eating.  Then, I just kinda maintained until March.  That is when I joined blogger and started trying to find something that worked for me.  I had gotten advise from my doctor in January to lose weight.  My PCOS was out of control and my bloodwork wasn't good. 

Anyway, here I am on April 11 and I have lost 16 lbs.  I started out at 240 and am now 224.  I finally feel like I can do this.  I got some really good advice from Chris and Kim.  They really helped me get motivated.  Thanks girls!

And I am happy to announce that the Easter candy ran out on Friday.  Chocolate is a big temptation for me.  I gave in a few times...but, I always counted it in my calories.  ;)

So, I am looking forward to another week of good eating and good choices.  I gotta get off of the computer now to finish getting ready for church. 

Have a great day!

Yay!!! Woohoo!!!! Awesome Shae! 16lbs.!!! Think about this....16lbs. is like 3 bags of sugar. Try holding 3 bags of sugar at the same time. That's a lot. That's the way I've been looking at mine. It really puts into perspective how much we've already done for ourselves just by losing some of the weight. I'm so happy for you and we CAN do this. We will do this and I think you've already learned something so important in this process. If one thing doesn't work, then try another. There's no rule about how many different ways of losing weight we should try....as long as we're trying and we do what is best for our bodies. :)

Fantastic loss Shae!! You're doing a GREAT job!! Very proud of you girl. I was looking at your food list....was wondering if you've tried any of the wheat sandwich thins as your bread? They taste just fine and they're only 100 calories each!!! Totally worth it to switch up little things like that and it will save you a BUNCH of calories. Also, have you tried Kraft Lite Mayo? It's the best-tasting lite mayo on the market in my opinion, and it only took me like a week to get used to it. Wasn't a hard change at all, and it's only 45 cals per Tbsp...just some tips to help you along! :)
