So, I haven't had the most successful week in weight loss. But at least I'm not gaining. I've had some "slackerish" days this week due to a billion different reasons. It's time to step things back up, dang it!

Tight, tight, tight

Ok, so I've had this pair of jeans for awhile. They're miss sized or something, because all other pants this size fit me very loosely. This pair, up until today, were so tight I couldn't even button them. I can zip them. They're still tight, but they're zipped and buttoned. Here's my goal...I want them to be loose by the end of March. Think I can do it?

Made my night!!!

I ran a quick errand to a little convenience store in town tonight. This is a really small town so everyone recognizes everyone else, even if we don't really know them. But I'm in the minority not knowing everyone, most people know everyone here because they grew up here and they know who I am because I'm the wife of the only state trooper that lives in the county...and a lot of them don't exactly like him, so I keep to myself. The woman behind the counter has seen me in there on several occasions, but she doesn't really know me. But...when I walked up to the counter she said, "Are you losing weight? You look great!" That totally made my night. My husband says he can tell, but he knows I'm trying. This woman had no idea and noticed. :)

Still in the new "decade"

I'm now a full pound into this new "decade" of numbers. I've lost 8.1 pounds since January 5, 2009. Yay!!!

Did you hear that???

Seriously, did you hear that or was it just in my head? I swear I heard a loud "YES!" this morning when I weighed myself. I know I was going to wait a day or two more before weighing myself again, but I gave in today and I was down!!! But not just that, I'm in a new "decade" of numbers or set of 10s or whatever you want to call it. I'm so happy! I've been stuck in this "decade" since sometime in August. I was beginning to think my scale didn't know how to go down to a new "decade," but apparently it does. I'm so happy!!!!!! I'm only .2 into this "decade," I'm going to have to work my butt off to make sure I don't go up again.

Speaking of which, I hope I worked a little of my butt off this morning. I did a 2 hour workout at the gym, both weights and cardio. Then I came home and did my run (45 minutes) on the treadmill. I was DEAD afterward, but dang I feel good about myself today!

I'm still here...

I'm still around. I've just been busy. I'm not doing a weigh in this week until Friday or Saturday, I just don't think I'd like what I know, those few days a month where the fairer sex tends to gain lame water weight. LOL! But I'm doing ok. I took one day off from the gym and two days off from running. On Thursday my trainer kicked my can at the gym and I could barely walk on Friday. That's the day I took off from both, but I did walk all over the Denver Zoo for a couple hours, so I wasn't totally sedintary. Tomorrow I have a goal to run 2 1/2 miles. I think I might wait to do it until The Biggest Loser starts. That should distract me enough to do the baby goes to bed at 7pm and my older daughter is good about staying away from the treadmill when either my husband or I are on it so it's the perfect time, right? I have a gym appointment in the morning too, so it's going to be an exhausting day.

Now...someone come take the M&M's away...gah!

Today I did an official weigh in for the Biggest Loser competition I'm doing. Since January 5th I've lost 6.1 pounds!!!! That's .1 less than yesterday, but .1 is nothing, I'll lose that plus some this least that's the goal. I've been stuck in a rut for so long...I'm so glad the scale is moving, so very, very, very, very glad!
