Weigh In Wednesday -- Post 299!!

I'm happy to announce that my very next post will be #300!! I'm hoping to make it something special...not just my normal grovel...

But for now I just came home from the gym where I weighed myself, wearing the same clothes and shoes from last week and the numbers were the same as last week! I have to say I am soooo disappointed. I thought with all the exercise that I'm doing I would have gone down at least SOME, but no the scales deny me that pleasure!

As of today around 1:30 CST I have not had any coke/caffeine for 2 ENTIRE WEEKS!! Please be proud of me! You have no idea how hard this has been... But I've been strong and have not even been tempted...except 1 time this weekend when I was out by myself...but I didn't stop! Yeah for me!!

I'm doing a LOT of exercise...which is good for me...but I obviously need to watch what I'm eating...increase my fiber intake, my water intake, and watch my serving sizes for dinner. I'm just gonna say the reason I didn't lose any pounds is cuz I'm gaining muscles!

So for this week:
Starting weight 2 weeks ago today: 225
Last week: 220
This week: 220

Total this week -- 0 pounds lost
Total weight lost -- 5 pounds!

*** Edited tonight 9 p.m. -- I just finished my 30 Day Shred DVD and my WiiFit Hulas!
I was able to do them a bit earlier tonight since the boys went to church together. That left me a couple of hours to do a couple of things. I usually sit around on my duff, but tonight I cooked dinner, then cleaned up the leftovers, checked emails, then got my butt moving!! I did my DVD then took a 20 minute break, then did my WiiFit Hula...didn't do so good tonight but still accomplished a good bit -- did the 6 minutes and bombed on the first round, only going 131 and crashed. Then I did 425 on the second round! I took a couple minutes to rest then did the 3 minutes...and made it all the way through! My abs are crying!! and my arms are crying!! and my legs are crying!!

Ann, you are doing a fabulous job! Your body is probably trying to adjust to all the activity! Next week you'll probably have a great loss.

And YES, I am so proud of you for quitting caffeine. I know how hard that is. SO HARD! Way to GO!!!!!!

I, too, am trying to lose weight and mine, too, is coming off much slower than I had anticipated/hoped/wanted. You get the idea! :) I LOVE the 30-Day Shred. First time was a killer, but I have found that I take fewer breaks and am less winded at the end of it. I figure that's worth something, even if the scale is giving me the finger. ha! Keep at it -- we are worth it! :)

Can't wait to read more about your journey!
