Weigh In- Lose For Good Challenge

Ok...first things first...See these pictures...the picture of me wearing the black pants! Guess what??? They are a SIZE 14!! I haven't worn a size 14 since I first found out I was pregnant with my almost 6 year old!! I know I still have a long way to go as is evidenced by my weigh in today, but I am making progress in the right direction....I'm so excited to be back down into a size 14! I'm having a garage sale this weekend and I'm getting rid of all my "fat pants"!! The other 2 pictures are my progress pictures. I'm having a hard time telling the difference in this month's pictures and last month's except that I am definitely having to tighten up the drawstring on those pants,(but you can't see that, can you?) so I'm just leaving it at this...

It's been a tough month for me. I'm having a hard time squeezing in exercise every night, and I have not been eating great and not drinking my water is hurtin me in more ways than one. But I am getting better. Once the garage sale is over this weekend I will have a bit more "free time" and maybe I can get my "groove back".
Over the past five nights I have managed to exercise 3 of them for my assigned 40 minutes. My goal is do it every night....that seems to keep me focused, if I am doing it every night.

Anywhoooo, my weigh in results:

Last week: 198.8
This week: 198.0

So that's a loss of .8 or 1/2 pound. Since my original weigh in at the beginning of the Lose For Good challenge I have gone from 199.9 to 202.10 and then back down to 198.0. So I'll be donating at least 4 pounds 10 ounces of food and I'll shoot for even more by Saturday's final weigh in. I would really like to get to 195.8 but that's not likely to happen by Saturday, so I'll just do my best. That's all anyone can ask, right?
