Last week: 134.8
This week: 131.8
Okay to keep it real, I think a pound of that was water retention from Cinco de Mayo the night before. Even still two pounds at this point in the game is amazing for me! I never see those kinds of numbers.
Side note - I am currently cramping like yo mama and expect the cotton pony to arrive tomorrow morning. How in the world did I lose 3 lbs this week?!?!?
For those of you who only stop by to visit on Wednesdays, I got measured on Thursday and had lost a ½ inch from each thigh! I lost a total of 1 inch from the widest part in my body in 6 weeks! I’m looking forward to all Jillian has in store for me (assuming Wal-mart would ever get me my video).
Also, since I think I’ll quickly advance in the weights (I’ve been taking a weight training class since January of this year), I really don’t want to invest in a set of weights that I won’t use for very long. A friend suggested that I fill a water bottle with sand. I’m going to try a modified version of that.
Mr. Right chugs PowerAde (when his mom stocks us up, I’m too cheap to buy it) and my dad gave us a bag of chat (like sand only heavier) for the basketball goal my parents got Mr. Right for Christmas. I’m going to fill up the PowerAde bottles with chat (gonna weigh on the scales to make sure they are even and enough weight) for the first little bit. Then when I get in my grove I’ll know better what size weights I need to purchase.
In Biggest Loser news, I fell asleep after Helen’s weigh in, which means I’m going to have to google it to find out who won. 117 lbs?? I vote for Helen gaining at least a little weight back.
Going to bed late 3 nights in a row might mean I miss the Lost finale tonight. I’ll get my mom’s tape and watch it before it comes back on next February no problem.
Okay that’s enough of a post for today. I’m going back to doing my “I lost 3 pounds” happy dance.
