Week 9 Weigh In

Sooooooo..... I lost another:

3 pounds!!

I am so excited. I have lost a total of 22.8 lbs. I am now under 180. Seriously. It's been a while since I was under 180. And I busted through the 180...I weighed in at 178.2. I was 170 back when the Kid was around 9 months old and I went gym crazy. I got SO bored after 3 months of just treadmill that I just gained it all back.

I asked about the standings and they only had up to week 7 percentages calculated. (He was working in week 8 - where I only lost 1 lb anyway) And I was ranked #7 overall!!! There are 16 teams of 5 = 80 people! And I am 7th. I can't believe it. Only the 1st place individual wins a year membership to the gym....but if I finish in the top 10 I think I could have some pretty good bragging rights. So back to the grind I go. My stitches come out tomorrow, so I can go back to power pump (weight lifting class) and do the elliptical with the arm things. My calf is still pulled a little, so I'm still not running, but my class of choice has been spin! It is so fun and I leave there dripping with sweat. I went twice this last week and had a great weight loss.

See you next week! I promise one of these days I will go back to blogging about the small people that live in my house and bug me all day. ;)

Week 8 weigh in

Today I lost:

1 pound

I'll take it. I seem to be doing very well every other week. One week I'll loose over 2 pounds (twice over 4!) and the next week I'll lose under 2. So next week I fully intend on losing over 2 pounds. I am hoping in the next month to loose 10 more pounds in this competition.

I am a pin cushion on Week 7

I'm a little late posting my weekly weigh in.... I was also a little late getting weighed in.

I didn't get over there until Tuesday morning. I went into the dermatologist to get the 'rest' of my freckle removed for "abnormal cells", and by 'rest of' I mean how much more could they possibly take?? The tiny black freckle they took was about the size of a pin head. (Thank you to my P.A. for spotting it!) So I go in at 10am last Monday fully expecting just a little hole in my arm similar to the one that was taken out of my leg over a month ago. Just numb me, cut me and put a band aid on it.

No. Not that easy. I got 3 frickin stitches!! I was totally not expecting stitches. I was planning on going home, getting my gym clothes on and going over for my weigh in and get a work out. Nope. By noon my arm was so sore. It sucked. Now I can't lift weights for 2 weeks! (one more week from this Tues when the stitches come out, really.) And I'm not supposed to lift the Baby?!? Huh? Fortunately, my arm looks great, a little bruise, but no redness or infection setting in, since I don't know how to ass was back in the gym on Tues to get some elliptical time in (since my calf still pulls so I can't run) and get my weigh in.

This week, I lost ANOTHER:

2.8 pounds!

For those of you keeping track.... We are now at 18.8 pounds loss in 7 weeks!

Plus, on another, totally unrelated subject. As we speak I have 6 garbage bags of toys and clothes sitting at my curb waiting for the Big Brother/Big Sister Organization to come pick it up. I purged a little this week and feel great about it!

Week 6 weigh in

So despite pulling something bad in my calf and being in pain when I walk for the last 3 days, at my weigh in yesterday, I still lost another:

1.8 pounds

Awesome. I am now down almost 17 lbs in 6 weeks. I am feeling great. I bought a pair of capris in the next size down (a twelve!) and wore them at Easter and got so many compliments.
I went to the gym this morning for the 1st time since Friday and did an hour on the bike. It was a good workout and now I have time to write since I have to ice my calf.

Our holiday weekend was nice. The weather was gorgeous and as soon as I download my pics from my camera I will post my very handsome little men in thier sweater vests. :)

I am SO SO SO SO pissed right now.
I went to the gym this morning to do Zumba and 15 minutes into the class I felt a POP in my calf.
I am in so much pain. I have a call into the PT place to get some help. I am so hoping I just pulled something and not tore anything!
Seriously. So pissed.
