Weight Loss Journey

I know I've mentioned several times that I want/need to lose weight.  The amount I've wanted to lose has also fluctuated quite a bit as I seemed to of gained quite a few pounds towards the middle of  this stupid deployment.

I've decided that I'm finally ready to really lose this weight, so I can be super sexy when my husband comes home.  The other thing I've been contemplating is actually discussing numbers.  I was already to discuss the number of pounds I've lost but what my actual weight was took a lot more convincing on my part.

It wasn't until last week that I finally told my husband what my true weight was!  And now I'm finally ready to share with everyone else too.

I know most people weigh in on a Sunday or Monday but I've decided to do it on Friday's.  I know that I generally "cheat" more on the weekends and don't want that Monday number to discourage me.

So here is where I currently stand:

Starting Weight  ???  (I was afraid of the number so I didn't weigh in till the end of week 1)
Week 1  ???  (145.6)
Week 2  -3 lbs  (142.6)
Week 3  -2 lbs  (140.6)
Week 4  -1 lbs  (139.6)
Week 5  -1.4 lbs  (138.2)

Total loss so far  7.4 lbs!

I know this isn't a huge amount but I feel good about it.  I'm not starving myself and I'm still treating myself to one Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee a week and generally one meal at a fast food restaurant during the course of the weekend.

I have 13.2 more pounds to loose but at this rate, I'm hopeful that I'll almost be where I want to be when my husband gets home!

(P.S.  In case anyone is wondering - I'm short - I'm only 5'1")

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
