Weigh In Wednesday

Today is the final weigh in for the Shrink into Summer challenge over at the Sisterhood...well, the good news is I'm down another pound! The bad news is that makes it barely over 2 pounds lost total for the 7 weeks since I agreed to be a part of the challenge. That's not really success. In fact, it may just be a fluke and I might be back to square one next week. Hmph!

I just got done dog-sitting for 5 days for the craziest (but most lovable) Staffy ever. He had more energy in his right leg than I had all damn week! It was really good for me though. I was never up later than 6:30am because I had to get up to walk him and then get to my house and get ready to be on time for work. We'd take about a mile walk in the morning and a mile walk in the evening. I know a mile isn't far, but its farther than I've gone in awhile! I was constantly shuttling between my place and his so I wasn't eating mindlessly because, well, there was no time!

Even better is that when my friend got back from his trip, he seemed to catch the LA bug and now is on a health kick. Can't hurt to ride the coat tails, right? I'm going to join him on his kick, though since he is on hiatus from work right now, he's planning to do two-a-days. That will not be on my agenda, I can tell ya that right now! This will be good for me. And hopefully, I'll finally get off these last 10 lbs or so!

Here is the man I've spent the past week with :)


  1. at least the scale is moving in the right direction! :) and if that's a current picture of you in your profile, it looks like you don't have much (if any) left to lose - so any progress is good!

  2. Any loss is a good loss! OWN IT GIRL! Sounds like riding your friend's coattails is a great idea. I don't know if I could handle two-a-days either!!

    Good luck this week and we'll see you at the next challenge!

  3. Oh well, a lose is a lose!! Keep it up!! It's hard to stay with it sometimes when we are super busy!!

  4. I didn't lose as much as I would have liked to either, but hey, I lost so I'm fine with it! Own those losses!!

    Good luck this week!
