Today wasn't an official weigh-in, but a couple of us decided to go to the nurse's office and weigh ourselves just to see how we had done in the last week. All week, my scale at home had shown no loss, so I wasn't too excited about weighing today. I was pleasantly surprised though to see that I had lost 1.2 pounds! I was hoping for more, but can't complain too much about 6.2 in 2 weeks. Plus, I was sick for the last week and didn't always feel like working out as long as I should, but still did at least half a mile every day except for one when I was just too sick. I don't know if it's my imagination (and it might be), but I think my jeans were a tiny bit looser today than they have been. I am also doing my measurements at home once a week, on Sunday, so I am curious to see if I have lost any inches this week, probably not in just one week, but who knows.

Well, my diet/exercise is going well despite me being sick. I have had a sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, ear aches, etc. for a few days now and I am so tired of it. I am on an antibiotic, mucinex, and cough medicine. I did skip one day of exercising because of this, just couldn't make myself do it. I have been using Walk Away the Pounds daily, for those of you that never tried it, it's a lot tougher than just normal walking. A mile and a half is as far as I have been able to go with that program so far, but hoping by next weekend I will be up to 2 miles! At weigh-in Friday, I had lost 5 pounds since beginning The Biggest Loser. I am watching calories and exercising and it was great to see that my hard work had actually paid off. I know those pounds won't come off as easily each week, but it was a good motivator for that first week to keep me going!

Ads~The Biggest Loser

I am starting to get mad at these ads that are being displayed, they are always about losing weight and belly fat! Is google trying to tell me something?????

I have joined The Biggest Loser at work, our school is going to be competing against other schools in the district. Our first weigh-in was last Friday and it will go on until the beginning of May. My goal is to be THE BIGGEST LOSER ever! I'll post after Friday's weigh-in how much I lost for the week. I am also exercising daily, along with counting calories so hopefully I will start noticing my weight dropping soon!

Now google, at least has a good reason to put the weight loss ads on here, since I have done a post about wanting to lose weight :)


The weather today is beautiful! I spent a while pulling weeds and just working out in the yard. It was nice to be outside and enjoy the weather. I even put Kit-Kat in her carrier and took her out with me. She enjoyed watching the birds that came to the bird feeder while we were there :)

Tomorrow is a holiday!!!!!!!!!!! So excited to get a day off from work and plan on spending it doing absolutely nothing since I was able to get everything done yesterday and today that needed to be done this weekend!
