Wow, Really?

My weight this week is 227.6, for a loss of 2.4 lbs.  I'm a bit shocked by that.  I was praying I was doing enough just to maintain.  It's inspiring to see a loss 2 weeks in a row.  I'm back down to the 220's and I'm going to do my best to never see 230 again in my life.

I had mentioned I was bringing back my 10 lb/mo goal.  Last Friday was the first week of the new month and I lost  3 lbs.  This is the second week and I've lost 2.4 more.  That means I've got 2 weeks left to lose 4.6 lbs and reach my goal.  Do you think I can do it???  Oh you bet your sweet a$$ I can. 

I've got to end this post so I can go bundle up and head out in the 17 degree weather to get to the gym.  The elliptical awaits.  :)

  4. That is an amazing loss 2 weeks in a row.
    I am going to do some wii fit as I am home today cause the roads are icy so I got as far as the end of my drive and then started sliding down the hill, we couldn't get the car back in the drive and I never got to the office.

  13. Sorry I’ve been away for the last couple of weeks! The busy holiday season made it next to impossible to find the time to do any blog reading, but I am catching up now! How I have missed your posts, girl!!! You are still doing amazing! I know, I know… there have been a lot of ups and downs, but you are not a quitter and, man, does it show. You are so inspiring, Tammy, and I am SO happy to be all caught up on your blog now! It just didn’t feel right, not knowing how you were doing, you know?

    You did a gorgeous job on your hand painted Christmas gifts! I wish I had such a steady hand and nice printing. ‘Grats on the EI cheque extention! I was so happy to read that it came though for you. And your last couple of weigh-ins have been awesome too! Way to go, Tammy; you are obviously going full throttle now and I can’t wait to see what comes next for you!

    I really did miss you!!!
