WoW Week 6

Alright, alright, alright (know the movie?)

So week 6 was decent. I wasn't super good at the start of it but since Monday I have been trying to 'hit it hard'. I am still not exercising and just focusing on my eating. Sugar makes her First Communion next month which mean I will have to be in at least one picture which mean I am in lose-as-much-weight-as-possible mode (what? you act as if I knew this was coming and should have planned accordingly, psha). I have decided the best solution for that is Atkins—not the healthiest solution but the best for rapid weight loss. I am taking it one week at a time...ideally I will stick with phase1 until the First Communion (May 17), realistically I don't know if that is attainable. So far so good though. 

This week: -7.4 though I am still not back down to where I was on previous weighins so for WoW it is basically 0. I should be there next week though. And remember this week's numbers are slightly inflated due to how I ate the week prior to the weigh-in, chugging Dr. Pepper the night before and weighing before you go pee in the morning really helps (I was trying to gain weight)!

Tug: -4 (hmmm, I didn't ask him if he wanted me to post his but since it was a loss I bet he is fine with it)
Laura: (via email) -3. She is updating on a private blog but for those who don't know her she is that crazy mama that had her SIXTH child like 4 weeks ago AND is already training for a half-marathon. Crazy indeed.
Amy: I don't know if you are still checking in (to keep the prego weight at a minimum) so I thought I would add a spot for you in case, or whoever is taking the spot, or whatever....
Jessica: -1.5 even a pinched nerve can't stop her!
Michelle: -2 as per usual
Miguelita: -2, "a Christmas miracle"
Kimberly: down yet another pound!
Renee: -1
Eileen: -5.5 WOOHOO, see comments for more. Good start!

If I have left your name off it is not intentional—a lot of people have left comments saying they are going to participate but then never check back in. If you do want to participate please just leave a comment with the ± and I will add it to the list. Gracias.

Great job Regina! My total for this week was -1.5... What I would give to be able to say -7.4!!! That is awesome.

Jessica said...

Lol! It stopped me from sitting at the table to eat!! :)

Eileen said...

Well, I wasn't a saint this first week, but, due to the inspirational effects of water weight loss on the first week of trying even a little, I'm actually down 5.5 lbs!!!

Now, I could put that all back on tonight with a few well-placed handfuls of potato chips, but if I continue to lay off the salt (and the snacks), I should be well on my way!

Believe it or not, I looked forward to this day all week. Thanks for the inspiration--you go, girl!

Kimberly said...

Down 1 lb., and lost an inch on my waist! Not too bad, considering I totally pigged out at Tony Packo's in Toledo. If you've ever heard of the "Bunker Buster", then you know what I'm talking about!

The Wades said...

It's a Christmas miracle! I'm down 2lbs! :) OH happy day

Auntie Nee said...

sorry i forgot to check in earlier. I am down only 1 lb
that really stinks but I will keep trying.

Michelle said...

Down 2.

I think I need to go Atkins. Hmmm...maybe tomorrow.

I have been on the treadmill twice this week. Last week I was too sick.

I too look forward to posting all week. Thanks, Regina. Good job everybody!

Lethal Weapon?

Regina said...

good guess shelly but no. think more juvenile. and youve probably never seen it either

Shelly said...

So I'm on the computer and the thought comes to me:
No! It's not Lethal Weapon 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 - He [Leo, that is] says, "ok, ok, ok"
So i knew i was wrong b4 i checked in! Hmmmm...
Well, if I've never seen it... give me a clue!

Shelly said...

*and* sad as it is to admit it - my dh had your title for your blog on our Mp3 player. So when I'd work out I'd hear that hysterical redneck song. I just can't remember the funny lyrics - wasn't there some reference to what she was drinking out of? Anyway - it is pathetically funny :o)

Ok Regina~~~ Count me in for next weeks weigh in.... if you don't mind. Blessings

"Alright, Alright, Alright" Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused. Yes I know the movie and thought it was boring but my friend in high school LOVED it. I may have something to do with him also liking mind enhancing stimulants.
