Shouting From The RoofTops!!!

Yes, 'mam/sir if I could climb up to the roof of my apartment building I would so be there right now! this challenge over at the Sisterhood has encouraged me to eat right, drink enough water to flush the "gunk" out of my system, and put in some extra walking/running miles. Thus, I have had an AWESOME lose this week!!

*Drum roll please*********

Last weeks weigh in was 206.6
This mornings weigh in was 199.0

Yes!! That was a one hundred number AGAIN!! This time I'm not going back to the land of two hundred! I'm not happy and I'm not healthy there so not goin' back!!

For my walking/running miles challenge I put in 15.37 miles. Not what I had hoped to do but I did do that much plus while at work so all in all I really did walk/run over 30 miles this week....just can't count all of those!

I was also supposed to drink 103.3 ounces of water! When saw that amount I thought I would struggle to get that amount BUT it really wasn't a challenge. I only got in about 105 ounces in on Saturday but the rest of the week I drank about 120 ounces a day! No wonder I spend so much time in the bathroom!!

So I obviously had a great week and I'm thrilled with losing 7 1/2 pounds in 1 week!! Wow!! I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that!! But I'm not complaining...I even double checked the scales because I could hardly believe my eyes! I stopped drinking cokes again! which is probably the single biggest way I lost this much weight....hum, do you think I'll be drinking coke anytime soon??

Can't wait to see how our Tribe Green does overall and to see what the next challenge brings us!!

as always ann, you are incredible!! that's an amazing loss!!!!!!

funny how we know what our weakness is (yours are cokes, mine fast food) yet we still turn to them when we're stressed. after this though i think you'll have an easier time resisting. and drinking that much water you probably don't have time to drink anything else.
