Day 8 and 9 Are Done!!

I got home from my trip did tons of laundry, slept and then at the end of the day I EXERCISED AGAIN.... Yeah for me!! Done with Day 8 of the 30 Day Shred!
Got up yesterday and goofed around on the computer catching up with my blogging friends, took That Other Kid to karate class, out to lunch at Chick-fil-a, then went to the chiropractor. Ran to the grocery store, paid a bill online, fixed dinner, goofed off some more, put That Other Kid to bed and EXERCISED AGAIN!! I'm on a roll!! Day 9 was done! I have to say my heart wasn't in it last night...my body hurt and I felt 'blah'!! I really wanted to go to bed, but I perservered and I'm glad to say I did...I went to bed feeling good about myself.

Today is the final weigh-in of this go round with my Sisters at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I'm waiting for dh to get home with the car so I can weigh in at the gym!! I'm hoping that I am down a total of 15 pounds, but I know that this week may have been just enough slacking that it didn't happen....just waiting is tiresome, though. So ....what I'd like to do is take a nap! But that's not gonna happen, since a certain little 5 year old wants to be constantly entertained.

I'll let ya'll know how I did after I go to the gym and weigh myself!!

Edited with Today's Weigh-In: Kind of bummed again -- but I will not be discouraged and give up.

Starting weight March 30, 2009 -- 225.8
Today's weight May 20, 2009 -- 214.6

Total weight loss during this challenge 11.2 pounds.

Now granted I am thrilled with the fact that I no longer am carrying those extra 11 pounds around I am discouraged because that means I still have 70 more pounds to lose and it has not been easy the past couple of weeks to continue to see the numbers stay the same or even go up. However, my dh gave me a pep-talk and told me that it is not ALL in the numbers...it also is in the way my clothes fit. And they do fit ALOT different! Some of my pants are literally falling off if I don't wear a belt. All of them require a belt to stay on me comfortably! So I will continue doing what I know is the right thing and wait for the numbers to start cooperating with me!

This challenge is over but a new one will be starting back up in a couple of weeks...come join us as we Shred and Shrink into healthier and happier bodies!

Dang it, you have me beat by a pound and a half!! I was shootin' for the honour of "biggest shrinker" this challenge, but I think that might belong to you! (at least, from what I can tell looking through the comments on the weigh-in post)

CONGRATULATIONSYou've done AWESOME with this challenge ~ I look forward to more mutual success in the next one!!
