Weigh In - Week 6

Wow, it is hard to believe that it has been 6 weeks of weigh in's so far.  On the one hand it seems to go so slowly during the week, but the weeks seem to be piling up.  So do the pounds lost I guess.  Progress is an amazing motivator.  Plus I even had a coworker ask if I've lost weight, so something must be happening!

So do you want to know the results of this week?  As you will recall, last week I gained .6 lbs.  I am happy to say that I didn't let that derail me though.  I still worked out 4 times this week and I tracked every day.  Actually I've tracked every day since I began - which is now 37 days total.  And my results?

-3.0 Pounds this Week
-14.4 lbs Lost to Date

I'm just glad I "lost" my gain from last week and even had an additional 2.4 lost beyond that.  But mostly I am proud for sticking with the program for 6 whole weeks.  If I can keep up my pace for the rest of the year it could be as much as 124lbs lost in a year.  So if 14.4lbs seems like a small step, it can lead to big changes!

And the amazing thing to me is that I am making those changes.

Too bad I didn't get to 15 lbs so I could add another bag of sugar - the butter is getting crowded.  But it is a good problem to have! Until my next weigh in I carry on - tracking, working out and changing things one day at a time.

I am curious - what do you folks want to know about what I'm doing?  Do you have any questions for me?  If you do please put them in the comments and I'll try to address them in a blog post!

Wow! That's awesome! I joined on Sunday. It's inspiring to see all that butter and sugar lined up and get a visual for how much weight that really is. You're rocking it!

Are you eating back the calories you burn exercising? I'm floundering trying to find a plan that balances for me.

Liz, I am so very proud of you, you are owning it!

Silly question but where did you get your visuals? I like the idea of tracking my loss with pictures too.

Proud of you, girl. :-)

I would love to hear your work out tips. I attempted a Zumba class a couple of weeks ago and I thought I was going to die. Plus, I overdid it and messed up my knee. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
