Weigh In Wednesday

This morning I was a bit nervous to step on those scales but knew I had to do it anyway. It is Weigh In Wednesday, ya know?? That means step up on the scale and look at the numbers and either moan and groan or jump up and down! I was prepared to moan and groan, cuz yesterday I was VERY WEAK and ate half a ANGEL FOOD CAKE!! Not half a piece, HALF A CAKE!! I really have no excuse...other than it was sitting there on the counter all day and I was here all day, too! But don't worry I paid for that indulgence dearly by having severe stomach ache and a need to stay in the bathroom a good part of the evening, if you understand what I mean..

Anyway here are my numbers:

Last week: 210 even
This week: 208.2

Weight loss this week -- 1 pound 14 ounces!!

That's almost 2 whole pounds -- even though I had a major blow it day yesterday! I have to say I was a bit shocked and EXTREMELY happy!!

Today we were planning to go swimming with some friends and I desperately needed to purchase a new swim suit, so against my better judgement I went shopping for a new swim suit after I got That Other Kid to bed last night. I actually walked into JC Penney at 9:30 p.m. and walked out with a new SMALLER swim suit at 10 p.m. It didn't even have a W behind the number this time!! That's the first time I have bought something without that W behind the number in A LONG TIME!! It felt great!!

We spent the day at the pool with our friends and I felt great wearing my new, smaller swimsuit and only weighing 208.2 pounds!!

I know I still have a long ways to go to get to my goal weight of 150 pounds but I am getting there faster than I thought I really could! Obviously, my new workout DVD is working to some degree...and of course the WiiFit!!

YAY!!!! THAT'S AWESOME!!! I love it when I lose a size and better yet make it to a place I never thought I'd see again! Good for you!! And eh, we all have weaknesses... Mine's the chocolate martini and they were bad news for last weigh in!

Good luck this week! Great job!!

Great job on the loss! And, most of all, hurray for the new suit! That's really a milestone, passing out of the W sizing. You're on your way, Ann! GO BLUE!!!
