Weight Loss Wednesday


I tried so hard to blog yesterday, but I wasn't home between the hours of being awake and going to sleep...LONG day!

But I am happy to announce that this week has been great. I started back at the gym which really boosted my motivation, and have already got my money's worth - been there 6 days a week! I also have been drinking tons of water, which is a great habit I was getting lazy on lately. And through my entire weight loss journey, I've wanted to started keeping a food log/journal to see if it helped, and I just was too lazy to do it. Luckily, the hubs has this great app on his ipod called 'Lose It' that helps make calorie counting so easy. I've been staying in my calorie intake very well, and have been trying to burn calories like crazy!

All the hard work this week has paid off. I have FINALLY broken through my weight plateau that has been plaguing me since the beginning of the year! It is such a good feeling and I NEVER want to go back!!!

I set a goal 2 weeks ago to lose 10lbs before I leave for Kentucky at the end of the month. Well, are you ready for this? I've already lost 7, so only 3 more to go!!! I'm so excited and motivated I'm gonna try and lose 15 lbs total before I leave!

It feels good. Hard work DOES pay off, people! My other goal was to be at my goal weight by my birthday, which would be losing 25 more pounds by August 6th....and the hubs is saving up to let me have a shopping spree/birthday treat as a reward when I reach it!

What about you? I would love to hear stories about how it felt to break past the plateau of weight. I am on such a health high right now =]

Great job Vee! Keep it up! Since I started training for the half, I actually quit worrying about my weight and weighing myself all the time. At the doctor's office a couple weeks ago, I was very happy with what I saw so that's a good sign!!! I think you'll totally rock 25 by August.

6 days a week, the pounds must be just falling off.

Excellent topics, I really like this topics. After long searching I found this online that the best chiropractic clinic helps people in Lawrenceville GA with back pain, neck pain, headaches. Call their office and speak to any one of their friendly staff to make an appointment for a FREE consultation.
