briefly… the milestone..and most importantly remember Good Friday!

It’s Holy Week and I’m staying close to Him and fasting from social media.. even my blog.. but I had to jump on here to keep my commitment to you sweet girls and Losing It.. and to scream.  In a good way.

Here’s a snap shot…

Check in on the goals:

  • Work out at least 4 times a week (elliptical, bike, treadmill) – Just completed Week 4 of Couch to 5k, 2 miles on the elliptical and walked the dogs yesterday on the green way.
  • Weight Watchers online.  I’m keeping track really well.  It is really working.. I can tell when I over eat now.  I am so stinking grateful!!!!
  • No more soda. I LOVE CRYSTAL LITE!
  • Slowly start cutting back on sweets/carbs. Yep…another week day of a pasta serving sent me over board with 7 turkey meatballs… I was HUNGRY and they were good…  I had 4 of them while cooking them..
  • Drink 1 gallon of water a day.

I’ve just completed week 6, I have lost a total of 14.5 pounds.. it equals 6.14% of my weight and I hit the milestone!!!!!!!  I discovered this week when I took a day off running that the 2 miles on the elliptical felt like I hadn’t worked out at all.  I imagine my body is beginning to need me to kick it up a notch.  This week will be key.  The 5k trainer has me running 5 and walking 3 alternatively.  I just might die.

What is on your Easter menu this weekend?  I have successfully stayed away from all chocolate.. but I think there might be something sweet in my future! Share your menu!!

  1. FANTASTIC! You are doing so great. Super impressed with your weight loss and exercise.
    Keep up the good work!
    Eater goodies are totally in my future. I plan to celebrate our risen Savior with my loved ones without worrying (too much) about what I'm eating.
    Sorry if this is posting twice. I posted once already but didn't see it show up.
    Happy Easter!

  2. WOW! Congratulations on your 6.14% loss! You are rockin'!
    Easter is kind of on-the-road this year. We're going to West Chester University to pick up our daughter, go to a local church there, brunch, then back home. So our Easter dinner is simplified this year: ham, mac and cheese, green beans…and something for dessert. Not sure what though.
    You are inspiring me to work harder. Thank you!

  3. Target’s brand of Crystal Light is calorie free. I LOVE the lemonade. I’ve started putting a little sugar free raspberry Torani syrup in it. MMM.
    Congrats on the fantastic loss.

  4. You are doing SO great! SUCH an inspiration!
    As for me, I'm happy to say that I turned down chocolate cake yesterday. I didn't turn out Mexican takeout or a few bites of my daughter's Easter candy. But I turned down CHOCOLATE CAKE! 🙂
