3 more pounds!!!

I’m late checking in but I’m down another three.  I’ve finally broken the 30 pound mark!  Since beginning this journey at 288, I’m down to 256.  That’s a good chunk of change!

I haven’t been exercising but I’ve been a champ about counting my calories, etc.  I feel like a slacker.  I need to hit that gym.  Tomorrow is my hope!

I’ve screwed around Sat, Sun, and yesterday so that isn’t good.  But if I can do a good job today through Friday and hit the gym Wed-Fri, I bet I may even get down another pound.

I’m pumped.  It’s such a good feeling to be losing weight!  Only 76 more pounds!  That looks a lot better than 108!  Woo HOO!  Rock on!

BACK to 259!!! HOORAY!

Alright!  I weighed in last Tuesday and did the spin class.  It was the only day I exercised last week.  The rest of the week I have been hardcore about counting my calories.  On Saturday I drove down to the central Y and weighed in socks, underwear, jeans, and an undershirt, and I was back to 259! 

Such a great feeling to be back!

I can’t weight till Saturday to weigh in again.  For some reason, I’ve always had trouble passing this 30 lbs mark, and I’m hoping to blow it out of the water Saturday!  I’m still hardcore on my calories and need to go to bed earlier so I can exercise.  There’s just so much other stuff to do during the day!!!  ARGH!  No excuses.  I just got to get to it!

Okay, really, I'm back now

So, I hit the Spin class again and finally feel like I’m back. I have my head back in gear, I’m not screwing around.

So where am I? How did I do over the break? Am I still in the Biggest Loser comp?

1. 269. Which brings us to #2

2. That is 10 pounds since my last weigh in. 5 more than I weighed officially for the BL comp with Play It Again Sports, which takes us to #3

3. Uh, not really. I basically have, again, 40 days. I’m such a procrastinator. It really burns since I finally got my wish to have an actual big prize money chance, and I’ve blown it. I could have lost weight and made some sweet moolah.

Which brings me back to earth. I’m in this for the long haul. This is my last time to weigh 269. I’m still 19 lbs less than I started this summer. And I have no doubt that I can lose a TON of weight before summer begins.

Progress, not perfection, right?
