HYC Check In

Oh that merciful scale! Today I saw a very kind 224.4 - which is just over my lowest low point, is a 2.4 pound loss - and I'm at the tail end of my cycle, so I'm thrilled to see a loss just for that reason alone! All I have to say is thank goodness for filling, nutritious and delicious lentils.

This week I continued my journaling streak - wahoo! I made all of my exercise goals, except for one day when I walked instead of going to the gym. That counts, though, yes?

This week I'm going to continue journaling, and exercise as much as I can - this is a crazy work deadline week. My food will stay on track, as my out of town guests had to cancel their trip at the last minute, unfortunately. (I was worried that I'd be eating out a lot - or preparing tasty but not so healthy meals for them)

And finally - I am certain that I am emerging as a woman who is losing weight, because today I am tucking in my shirt! I'm so crazy! Those in my real life know how big my tush and hips and belly are - so this is significant for me.

I hope everyone had a great week - here's to another week of hard work. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go get my 65 pound loss bling!

You are doing awesome! Meeting all those little goals is a great way to stay motivated, I think that is part of the reason journaling/blogging helps keep us focused so much. You had a great week - hope this is another great one for you!

Wow, 65 lbs.?!?! That's amazing! I just found your blog through the HYC, and I must say, you are an inspiration! I hit 50 lbs. last week, and can't wait to get to 65 lbs.!

How cool about tucking in the shirt. I think I'm about there too......still feels a bit odd, but I find my big baggy shirts feel even worse. It's an entire mindset change, isn't it?

Keep up the great work!

WOOHOO! Congrats on the loss and the tucking. I put up photos with my shirt tucked in and my sister's friend said it's "not the fashion!" I said, heck with that! It's been YEARS since I could tuck, so I'm tuckin'! I never did care much about the "latest fashions." ;-) You go, girl!
