Weight Loss Thursday:)

Yesterday was crazy... so please pardon me joining the party on Thursday....

So, last week was definately a rough patch for me. I was procrastinating exercise until 8:00 or 8:30 pm, I was whining that I didn't want to do it... my poor husband.

Anyway, on Saturday night we were going to church. I decided to put on my pair of kacki pants, which I haven't worn since Lent began. I noticed that they fit a little differently, in a good way.

Sunday morning I decided to weigh my self (I have not been weighing myself regularly. I am prone to being a bit obsessive about it if I weigh myself more than one a month, one every couple of months.). So anyway, I was down FIVE pounds since Lent began. FIVE POUNDS! I could not believe it!

THAT has put some serious spring back in my step when it comes to exercising; no whining this week! Of course, I'm not looking to drop a magic number, I just want more than one pair of jeans, one pair of kackis, and one pair of shorts that fit my body. It just helped me see that what I have been doing is working, that my hard work and sacrifice is making a difference. Isn't that what we all long to know?

Now, if I could just keep myself from eating the Trader Joe's Caramel Sauce straight out of the jar during pre-school time...:)


  1. YIPPEE! That is always nice to slip into clothes with ease. Congrats on your success :)

  2. Yay! There's nothing like a little success to be a great motivator. Good job!

    I can't wait to hear how this week goes w/your new motivation! And thanks for joining Weight Loss Wednesday on Thursday! You are welcome to join anytime! (((hugs))) to you my friend!

  3. That is great news Christine! It's always hard getting rid of those extra pounds. What it makes it even better when you get a good surprise like losing weight and fitting into clothes when you didn't expect it.

  4. Congrats on the loss - that's great! Keep up the good work! And maybe you could eat the caramel sauce with apple slices - then you're getting fruit at least - LOL! :)
