Me (and Weight Loss) vs. The Holidays

Monday, November 22, 2010
It's already here and I can't believe it. This year has flown by, but at the same time seems to be dragging on forever. At any rate, I'm really working on NOT gaining, NOT maintaining, but rather LOSING weight this holiday season. Crazy, huh? So far I've lost 4.4 pounds. We don't weigh in again until the 29th and I'm not sure how different my scales are compared to the WW scales. So, I'm not even going to bother weighing myself this week. However, I did measure myself.

For the past two weeks I've been attending a fitness class that I affectionately call Boot Camp. Lots of push-ups, squats, lunges, sit-ups, running....well, you get the picture. Anyway, as of yesterday I have lost a total of 7 inches!! WOO HOO! I've lost an inch in each of my arms, two inches in each leg and one inch in my hips. I am more excited about this than I am the 4 pounds. It makes all the sweating, soreness and pain worth it. :)

  7. You go girl! I joined a spinning class. I didn't enjoy it. It umm ... lets just say my lady bits down there did not appreciate the cycling pain.

    We just got a Kinect for our Xbox and I've been doing the personal trainer game which has totally shown me exactly how out of shape I am lol. Hoping to lose a decent about of weight before TTC again.

    *hugs* my friend and happy ICLW

  9. Happy ICLW!!!

    Good luck on the WW. The one and only time I have managed to have a dieting program work for me, it was WW.

    By the way, WW makes a scale that you can purchase. I got mine from Wally World.
