Weigh-in Wednesday - Looking Back

While I'm out on vacation, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the weigh-in posts back in the day when I first joined the Sisterhood.  I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you!  What a difference some encouragement makes!!

This blog was originally posted on March 11th, 2009:

Today is Wednesday over at the Sisterhood and I'm still frustrated.

I gained a pound from last week. So now I'm only two pounds away from my eating fast food everyday and going home from work and plopping down on the couch weight.

And seriously, if this is the best it gets I'd rather have my double cheeseburgers...
Another from March 25th of this year:

Current weight: 134.0

Edited to Add my goal for the next 8 weeks - to lose 5 pounds. I can't tell you how long its been since I've been in the 120s!

I had to look back on last week's records to see that was a 0.4 lost from last week. Not as much as I'd like but I'll take it.

On Monday, I had my wellness assessment and she pulled out the tape to take my measurements. I hadn't been measured in almost a year, but since then i have lost a 1/2 inch here, a 1/4 inch there.

What frustrates me is my legs. I could be content with everything as it is now, but my thunder thighs.

To give you an idea - my waist at its smallest point (my belly button) is 26 1/2 inches. My thighs at their biggest part? 24 1/2 inches.

Go ahead and sign this freak up for the circus.

The crazy thing is that I didn't think I had anything to lose in my upper body - and I've actually lost more in my stomach area than my legs. My arms have gotten slightly bigger, but that's because they are getting toned.

So there it is. You know my secret - and why I've cropped my profile photo so that you don't see me for the freak I am.

Thank you ladies, for everything you've done to help and encourage me along the way!!
