Weigh In - Week 35

Today is a big day.  I stepped on the scale to find that I have lost 50 pounds since June 1, 2011.  FIFTY!  I'm so excited I can hardly keep my mouth shut.  I feel the impulse to shout it out my front door and tell people in line at the grocery store and roll down my window and yell out at every intersection, "I lost FIFTY pounds!"  But instead of boasting all over the block, I'll just shout it out here on my blog.

My husband was the first to congratulate me this morning. He cracked me up by saying, "And the best part is you lost fifty pounds by being healthy and not by being weird."  I'm not sure what "being weird" might entail, but I assume it would be something along the lines of eating only grapefruit and Fen-Phen martinis or going to oxygen bars for O2 therapy or having a daily colonic. So cheers to losing the weight slowly, steadily and healthfully!

It's been a good week for weight loss, but it has also been a good week for our family.  We're back in the swing of things after our month of illness and out of town Daddy.  I've been sticking to my "cut the grocery bill" New Year's resolution with lots of success.  In fact, last month, we cut our grocery bill in half!  Click HERE and HERE to see what I'm doing to keep our costs down.

Pounds lost this week: 3
Total pounds lost: 50

I can't even BEGIN to tell you how proud I am of you for sticking to your goals. It's so inspiring to see how you made some decisions and have KEPT going, despite having a day or week of not doing as well as you liked. You didn't throw in the towel, instead you were introspective, you regathered your strength and bullied on. Omg, I wish I could hug your neck on this big milestone of a day! Keep up the fantastic work, and I'm so glad your blog is here to inspire others to improve their health!
