Weigh in Wednesday

While there is technically no challenge currently going on at the Sisterhood, I wanted to still keep on track with my weigh ins etc. This week my weight is 251.6, that means that I have lost one pound since last week at this time, and honestly... I'll take it :) Its not much but I haven't had any exercise at all so I will definately take it.

I heard a 'rumor' that a new challenge will be starting over at the sisterhood next week, so pop in and check it out.

Weekly Shrinking Jeans Check-In and FINAL shrinkvivor

Today is the final weigh in for the Shrinkvivor challenge over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. The winners of both the Entire Challenge as well as the exile island will be announced tomorrow, but in my book... WE ARE ALL WINNERS. We have won our HEALTH!!! We have won the ability to learn to track calories, exercise and in some cases we have been lucky enough to develop a new habit because of the challenges that we were issued during this event. I know I for one now get my 5 servings of fruits and vegetables when I didn't use to, and water really is my best friend. I wish I could say that I NEVER hit the drive thru, but I can tell you that since starting this challenge I have made MUCH BETTER CHOICES. Subway has become a family favorite...even for me and I HATE sandwiches. Its just as quick and easy as those other fast food places, but it is so much more healthy.

My weight today is 252.6lbs. that means that for this whole challenge I have lost 7.4lbs. I'll take it :) Especially since when my tribe was sent to Exile, I had a hard time getting back on the program... but I have a renewed faith in myself and my abilities to lose weight. I know that I will succeed in this journey... Heck I've lost 2 lbs since Monday when I got back on board (probably all water weight from my gallons of water each day).

Yesterday I did the 'butt buster' hill with a close friend of mine. I have talked myself out of doing that hill numerous times with her... but honestly, it wasn't that bad... I survived... and you why... because I am a survivor :)

Happy Journey everyone!!!

I turned 30 yesterday...

Yesterday was the day that I joked about for years. My 30th birthday. I often joked that for my 30th birthday I would be getting myself a tummy tuck and a breast reduction... well because I am still way to big to even think about contemplating those things I am using my 30th birthday as a starting off point (again). I have decided that I am going to really do this...getting healthy thing. I need to do it, not only for my own health but for the health of my children.

I will still be participating in the different challenges that are going on through the amazing folks at Shrinkings Jeans, tracking my points using the Weight Watchers Online Tools, as well as tracking my Exercise using DailyMile.

Awhile back there was a day in which alot of people posted pictures of themselves in just their undergarments, and well I'm not quite there yet, so these pictures are as close as you are gonna get :) These pictures were taken this morning (November 1st, 2010). My weight this morning was 254.6 lbs 

Wish me luck folks....
