A Good Weigh Day

So it's not as amazing as the 6 lbs. I dropped last week, but it's still a loss.  The scale said 231.0 this morning for a loss of 2.6 lbs.  I feel pretty good about that, especially with bumping my calories to 1800 this week, as well as a couple of really high calorie days (Sat and Mon).  I did workout 5 days this week, so I'm sure that played a part in it.  All in all, I'm a happy girl.  I've got one week left in this month. After Christmas I said I was bringing back my 10/lb month goal to give me something to strive for, then I blew that all to hell in January.  So far I've lost 8.6 lbs in the last 3 weigh-in's.  We'll see if I can knock out another 1.4 lb. loss next week to reach that 10 lb/mo goal this time.  Hope all of you have a happy and safe weekend!  :)

  4. YAY!! Congrats on your loss. It's great to be able to up the calories and still lose weight. I swear the longer it takes to get off the better chance of it staying off so 2.6 is perfect.

    I was working on the -10/month goal too and then SuperBowl weekend came along. It took me all week to work the salt out and get back to where I was last Friday.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Anywhere close to 10 lbs a month is awesome, if I can even lose 5 this month I'll be thrilled!

  13. Congratulations Tammy! You are doing a good job and I'm sure you'll see the 220's before much longer. You'll be happy to know that I'm trying to get back on the weight loss track. I weighed yesterday and was 250 lbs! Yes! I've gained back 17 of the 22 pounds I'd lost. I was so sad. But this is day two of healthy eating and I hope to have those 17 lbs gone in a few months.
