Weigh Day - Week 2

I was really nervous for my weigh-in this morning.  Even though I worked hard this week, I was afraid the scale wasn't going to show anything because of my 13-pound weight loss last week.  But...the scale made me do a happy dance AGAIN this week!

I lost another 3.4 pounds this week!!  I cannot even tell you how excited I am about that.  Who knew that eating healthy + working out several days a week = weight loss?  :)

Week 1 Weight: 281.0
Week 2 Weight: 277.6
Total Weight Loss: 16.4 pounds

I'm also really happy to report that I got past the initial sugar cravings.  I just realized I haven't even thought about dessert or drinking pop for a few days.  Instead of sitting at work and dreaming of all the places I could order food from when I get off, I actually am excited about the dinners I have planned and cooked for myself.  I am cautiously optimistic that this might really be the time I do this weight loss thing.

Are you a calorie counter?


  1. Go, Lisa!!! Goodness gracious! What a beautiful loss. You're doing very well! Keep up the brilliant work. :)

    Yep...I'm a calorie counter. I need to be or else it'll be "epic fail" for me.

  2. WOWWWWW Lisa, you are on FIRE! Congrats on another FANTASTIC week!!!

  3. Chubby - It is the same way with me. I cannot handle that whole "intuitive eating" thing. I'm loving my kitchen scale as a calorie counting tool. Weighing things is a really easy way to get the right portions and to divide foods up into single servings.

    Erin - Thanks so much for the encouragement! I'm kind of shocked at it myself. :)

  4. Very good progress so fast! Keep working.

  5. Thanks for the encouragement, Coach!

  6. That's an amazing weightloss!

    I've been doing a lot of food journaling, and calorie watching... as much work out as I can manage... I bet I can manage more, some times my motivation lacks.

    I just want to be healthier, and look fit. Is that so wrong?


    Keep up the amazing work.

    I'm following you now! So don't let me down. haha j/k.

  7. I have the same motivation problem, Kateri. The winter is the worst because my workout options indoors are limited and riding the stationary bike is super boring to me.

    Hey, I don't want to let you down. I've got to step it up now. :)
