Weigh-in Wednesday

The only purpose of blogging today is to be accountable and share my weight for "Weigh-in Wednesday" ... the Summer Challenge at Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I love accountability!!! ALSO, I'M BLOGGING TODAY~ TO POST A MESSAGE TO ANY "SISTER'S IN THE HOOD" or ANY BLOGGERS WHO ARE WANTING TO LOSE WEIGHT... KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE AND DON'T GIVE UP... YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO! JUST DO IT.

I run with the Sisterhood

I'm happy to report I am down 2 pounds from last week! This week I cut out my monster bowl of ice cream for desert each night (replaced it with a couple pieces of Dove Promises- dark chocolate (45 calories each)- I don't believe in complete desert deprivation!, reduced portion sizes of my lunch and dinner, cut down on unhealthy afternoon snacking, kept water intake high, and deliberately made over all better food choices. Unfortunately, this past week I DID NOT do any type of "regular exercise, although I do remain active around the house. My goal this upcoming week will be to continue healthy eating choices and start walking on a regular schedule.

Here are my stats:
Start Weight = 155 (on May 26) ... "A Kick in the Hiney"

Last Week Weight - 153.5

TODAY = 151.5 (down 2 pounds/3.5 total)

Summer Challenge GOAL (by end of July) = 145

ULTIMATE GOAL (by end of the year) = 130

This week's Memory verse:

'Not by might nor by power,
but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty.

(Zechariah 4:6)

That is so great, Teri! I, too, am trying to get back to regular exercise--three times this week is better than none last week! My realistic goal is four times a week, so I'll DO it next week! I would DO it this week, except I've got a garage sale and wedding the next two days, so I know there won't be a chance, but I'm definitely feeling better. My eating has slowly gotten better, too. I eat pretty healthy, my problem is portion control--is there some syndrome where we feel the need to eat more to ensure we're not deprived??? It's ridiculous, but I find myself kind of feeling that way when I'm scooping more onto my plate, then I have to mentally stop myself. Thankfully, the LORD is helping me have better self control in this area!!
