Weigh-in #8

I know ya'll have just been holding your breath, anxiously awaiting today's results. :-) I will now end the suspense....

The nephew lost another pound, but I can tell he has lost several inches. :-) So, he is doing good.

I lost 2.3 lbs in the last 10 days. This brings my total loss, so far, to 45.6 lbs. Yeah, I can't believe it either.

Now, before you all start on the "How did she do it?" "Man, wish I could be that dedicated" kick let me just say, "I have to confess, I did cheat." Sorry.

Last week, on my birthday, I ate a Milky Way. Yes, I am ashamed, but MAN DID IT TASTE GOOD! And, yesterday I had a piece of an ORGANIC candy bar. Just a piece, and it WAS ORGANIC! And last night I ate about 10 candy corn. They are fat free you know. Did I mention the candy bar was ORGANIC?

Ok, I know that isn't an excuse, but in my defense it was the first piece of candy I had in about 4 months. AND I will not go overboard. I had my "fix", so I'm good.

I did go to water aerobics this morning, and we have exercised our regular schedule this week. Actually we were going to go for a longer workout yesterday, but we had a storm hit and it knocked out all of the electricity on our side of town. Let me tell you there is nothing like "huffing and puffing" on a cycle for over 30 minutes only to have a large clap of thunder and a black out stop your fun. :-) At least I did get in the whole hour before it happened, because I had already gone a mile on the treadmill.

I can already tell such a difference just in losing the 45 lbs. I can reach behind me farther, I walk easier, and my ankle hasn't bothered me in a long time. I am more flexible, and my clothes are baggy. :-) I can tell that my behind is smaller. Seriously. I still have a very LONG WAY to go. I won't tell you how much I have to lose, until after at least half of it is gone, but trust me when I say it is A LOT.

So, I am considering going back to phase 1 for a few days, just to "shock my system" into more weight loss. If I do I won't do it until Monday, because I already have fish thawing in the fridge for supper, and I DO NOT WASTE GOOD FISH. :-)

That is just amazing - you are doing incredibly. It seems like this really is a way of life for you now.

Thank you, Sarah :-) I am trying really hard. :-)

I got to buy some new PJs today, because my new pair I just bought a couple of months ago are falling off. I had to go down 2 sizes. :-)
