Fat Butt Friday: Too Good, Can it be True???

Last week, I started to feel the plateauing coming on. So I decided to change my meal plans a little. I cut out my low-cal salad dressings and stuff with Red Wine Vinegar, made my meat portions a little smaller, but added more green veggies to each meal. I also added more fruit as well.

All week, I was feeling fantastic!! I could really feel I was losing weight! Yay! Maybe I would reach my 20 pound goal by the end of the month after all!

So this morning, after I woke up, I got on the scale.

I stared.

Was I seeing things? How could this be?

I got off the scale and scooted it to a different location in my bathroom and tried again. Same number.

I rubbed my eyes. I did accidentally sleep in my contacts last night... I could be seeing things.

Nope. The scale was right. I'm a little embarrassed to share these stats with you today. I am afraid you are going to think bad thoughts about me.

But I committed to Fat Butt Friday, so here they are:

Goal loss: 50 pounds (even though I need to lose more than that to get to an ideal weight -- 50 seemed reasonable for the time Ben was gone)
Pounds lost this week: 8 (I know, it's a lot, but I swear I was just a good eater!)
Total pounds lost: 23

Almost half way there!!! Yay! Not only did I meet my goal this month, but I also got a little bonus! I want you to know, though, that I worked out a lot this week and ate really well. There was no throwing up involved, and I didn't go hungry! I guess my body just really liked what I was eating. I still have a ways to go, so we'll see what happens. With my body, anything can happen.

Did anyone else have a good week??

I can't be friends with you because you are too amazing..... ok I can be friends but I hoe your amazingness rubs off on me. I'm in a real slump. I need to kick my butt into gear. I have been really struggling with eating habits.

Joking aside. You did awesome, keep it up.

Whoo hoo! I am so proud of you! I hit my goal weight this week after a very long 16 months of changing my portions to more appropriate rations. I didnt really work at it, so the 2 pounds lost per month was a good bonus for me. Keep up your good work! It will all pay off!
