Default yay yay yay!!! Weight loss!

So I just got back from my weigh in and guess what?!!?!? I lost 3.4 lbs this week!

Like, I'm actually so ridiculously excited right now I'm like a giddy school girl! haha.

I'm doing a biggest loser weight loss challenge in my town so that's where I weighed in this week.

I am so proud of how I did this week - I counted my calories, ate healthy most days (and even the days I didnt, I still counted them and stayed within my limit!), and exercised on most days and I feel great!!!

I can't believe how motivated I am this time and so ready to get this weight off for good! I know I'm kind of repeated myself in what I've said in other posts but I'm so ready! and you guys here have no idea how much of a motivation you're being to me also!!

Thanks for being here and I cant wait to continue sharing my weight loss journey wiht you guys! You're all awesome!

Here's to a great next week!!

You go girl! Congrats! It almost feels like a miracle when you see the scale start to move, doesn't it? It is so empowering and motivating. You have inspired me to keep going too. Great job!

Sweet! Great job!!

Just remember to take pictures and measurements every couple weeks because they are far better indicators than the scale which sometimes will get stuck and refuse to budge.

Thanks guys!! I can't believe how many people in the last couple days have said that I was a motivation to them!

Yes, you read that right - I am a motivation to them!. This is SOO weird for me, the girl who never exercised and just kept getting fatter and fatter because she loved her McDonalds! haha It's amazing what a change in attitude can do (oh and learning I was allergic to wheat didn't hurt! haha)

Thanks for all your positive energy and encouragement guys! And thanks for the feedback!

And JohnP - you're right about the measurements for sure! The group I'm in for the challenge does measurements every month so that's good, but I'll have to keep doing it myself after that's over!! Thanks for the reminder!
