6 lbs Total

Yay me!!!

I have lost a total of 6 lbs since starting WW. I am so proud of myself. I have worked hard to lose those 6 lbs and feel so accomplished. I finally feel like I'm getting on track with my life.

Isn't it amazing how losing 6 little lbs. can change my outlook? I feel better about myself and know that I am heading in the right direction.

Now, it's time to step it up a notch. That's right, I'm talking about the dreaded "e" word.....

EXERCISE!!

I bought Jillian Micheal's 30 Day Shred and will be starting in on Monday. Now, Jillian Michael's gets on my last nerve. So, I'm not sure how that's going to work. However, I have some friends who have been doing it about a week and they have already been able to tell a difference in their energy and strength. So, with their support, I'm going to give it a whirl!

The best part? I got the DVD for free! I used some of my Amazon gift cards that I got with Swagbucks!

Double Woot!!

It makes me giggle.

I have decided to get serious about this scrapbooking and am in the process of changing my spare bedroom into a craft room. And by "in the process," I mean that I just thought of doing it last night. Now, I need to get started.

Anywho.....

Another aspect of my seriousness is that I have joined the Cricut Message Board. Wow! Tons of ideas and inspiration!! Since I am going to link this blog in my signature, I signed up as LoserGirl. Gotta keep that real name secret, right? hehehe.

Well, I had to put a last name when I was registering so I used "Loser" as my first name and "Girl" as my last name. So now, when I sign on to the message board I get this wonderful welcoming message in the top right corner of my screen. So sweet of them.

What does the message say, you ask?

"welcome back Loser."

WW Week 4

Gloom.

Despair.

Tragedy.

Yep, I went back to WW after missing a week (or 2), not journaling, and just not following the plan.

Gloom.

Despair.

Tragedy.

Yep, I gain weight.

Gloom...

Desp.....oh, you get the idea.

The good news is that I only gained .6! I was hoping my gain would be less than a pound and it was. Whoop! Whoop!!

New Direction

I have decided to take this blog in a new direction.I'm going to continue the weightloss posts, but will now be adding craft/scrapbooking stuff posts, too.
Now, those two things don't necessarily go hand in hand, but that's my life!! A mixed up jumble of random stuff. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Update.....Long Overdue!!

So I started WW and did great the first two weeks. I lost over 5 lbs and met my first goal!! How awesome is that? Pretty, awesome, I'd say.

Then life got busy and I missed a few meetings, gained a pound back, and quit journaling. Now, I'm dreading going back to that meeting on Friday. I know I've put some of those 5+ lbs (if not more) back on and I don't want to step on that scale.

I will, though. I HAVE to. I have to get back on track. I have to be more healthy. I have to lose weight.
I'm tired on not being able to bend over without groaning.
I'm tired of my legs hurting when I get up.
I'm tired of not being able to breathe after walking up a flight of stairs
and
I'm tired of huffing and puffing everywhere I go.

Therefore, I will go to that meeting on Friday. I will step on that scale and I WILL NOT get mad at myself for fluctuating on my weight. It's what happens, right?

I'll let you know how it goes.
