WOW-7

I started drinking Dr Pepper again; however, there is a very logical reason . . . I needed something to give up for lent and tradition says it has to be Dr Pepper. So, no more Dr Pepper ;)

This week was not a good one. I exercised Wed/Thur/Fri but the kids got sick starting Monday so I didn't exercise Mon or Tues~I usually exercise at the Y when the kids have classes but they didn't go to classes since they were sick and I am not motivated enough to do it on my own (I guess I really should give Wii Fit a try, I still haven't used it). 
Aside from Dr Pepper, I think I will give up food for lent. 

This week: +3 (honestly I expected it to be worse)

Stats:
Paula: -8
Renee: -2, good job
Amy: + 0.6
Jessica: -2
Erica: -1.2
Laura: +3 
Michelle (rs): -1
Angela: 0
Christine: -1
Michelle (wa):
Juli: 0
Keri: off the computer for lent
Shelly: typically broken scale
Cecilia: + 0.5
Michelle (ggyr):
Lori: off for lent
Mimi:

15 people are laughing with me:

+3 but I'm not sure why. I've been good about diet and running nearly every day. Maybe I just didn't want it hard enough? OR, it could be that I had some birthday cake yesterday? I know I didn't eat three pounds worth...I'm pretty sure it's because I'm bloated right now. I feel like my stomach has lead in it. I think I'll re-weigh on Saturday after drinking more fluids and fasting today and Friday.

I lost 2lbs. Not much.

By the way the wii fit is fun.

Last week, while in Vegas I didn't give you my stats... and I wasn't near "my" scale. SO, I am sure there was a spike in weight there as I had some non-diet friendly items... But, I have tried really hard this week... so from my weight 2 weeks ago I am down 1.2 pounds - so, I did better than that over the week, but I will just say 1.2 from where I last weighed in here!!

So much said and I only needed to say down 1.2 lbs!

AND, some people are posting measurement/inches lost or gained... what are they measuring and how are they getting their measurements?!?! I am still filling out my jeans just as much as when I started... although some of my bras are feeling a little less supportive and THAT was not where I was looking to lose the weight. I was hoping for the thighs, hips, bum and belly pooch to be the ones to take a hike. So, in all that measurement stuff... please explain someone what in the heck you are measuring to come up with an inch lost or whatever!!! :)

Paula in MN said...

Down 8. butyouknowwhy

Juli said...

I don't like posting when I haven't lost. :( So I haven't lost. Big 0!

Amy said...

UGH
+ 0.6
Oh well, the fat Tuesday celebration yesterday complete with fried chicken and Portuguese donuts was so worth it. I will make up for it during Lent... I hope!!!

Shelly said...

ummmm... broken scale.

still.

Jessica said...

I am down 2 pounds this week, even after our Mardi Gras Celebration! Overall I am down 7 pounds since we started this time.

Christine said...

-1 finally!

Cecilia said...

aww..+.5 , what a cycle! God bless.

Busy With Blessings said...

Ok ladies. I've completely bombed out once again :(

I've lost and gained the same ten pounds too many times to count :)

So.... here's a new strategy. I'm not weighing until after Lent. I am commited to keeping a food journal and counting points (WW) I've done really well with Weight Watchers in the past. Hopefully I'll have some good news come Easter! Keep up the good work everybody :) God Bless, Lori

Michelle said...

I was -1 from where I was back at the beginning. Oh, happy lent.

Angela said...

Oh Regina - no worries; it's all just for fun right??? That's what I've been telling myself.

No change to report for me. But my weigh in at Curves awhile back showed 2.25 inches lost!
