Week 2!

Here's my post-thanksgiving post....

I'll cut to the chase and say that I ended up losing 2 lbs this week!! Better than I thought since I KNOW I cheated a bit, but on the low side if I want to get my 50 asap. I really think it has something to do with so many days outside of my normal routine and not drinking water like usual! Next week, shooting for 5! The plan is to hit the treadmill...

Wish me luck!


PS - Any insight on how to avoid this over Christmas too???

Week 1....Drum Roll Please!

So, its officially the end of my week 1 on my new adventure of becoming the skinny bitch that I was meant to be. Before I tell everyone my progress, I'll share a little about the weeks' progress.

First, I am fiending for an ice cold diet coke. I can give up anything it seems and replace it with a healthier option except this...I am nearly salivating thinking about cracking open that beautiful silver can. Mmm. Next, I did an awesome job sticking to my 1500 calories or less, most days I actually came in at 1200 or 1300. Woo!

My new discovery for the week, Sugar Snap Peas! I've NEVER tried them before and think they are my new favorite thing to mindlessly snack on both at work and watching TV. Even Mr. Rookie likes them! :)

Although I made a deal with Manda to start an exercise program yesterday Mr Rookie had different ideas and we spend the evening at the vet. So, we'll be starting that piece of the journey tomorrow. Then comes turkey day...I vow to stay busy and now nibble on stuff....I can do it!!!

And now, for the final results...I LOST SIX POUNDS THIS WEEK!!! I feel so energized to keep truckin' along...I know from previous attempts at this that the first two weeks' weight loss are seriously Biggest Loser style numbers. I don't care, six is six, and I am well on my way to 75...which ends up being about 3 pounds a week. Keep truckin!!

Til next week...

New Beginnings...

Well, its day 2 after realizing that the person that I "see" myself as isn't the same person that others around me see. I am 48 hours into my new life and am realizing that I need everyone around me to know what my goals are, selfishly because I am hoping people will think twice before tempting me and that maybe just maybe I will find a weight loss buddy that is just as serious as I am!

Thus, the blog. Here's to new beginnings!
