Weigh in day...


I felt like suspenseful music was appropriate there. I lost another 1.2 lbs this week! I weighed at 220 on the dot tonight so next week I'm hoping to break that second digit and be in the teens! I didn't track as well as I should and could have, I just got lazy. I probably would have had better results had I been more diligent, so I'll try harder this week!

I went back to Zumba for the first time since having little Andie. I thought I would be so lost, I was even afraid I wouldn't have the stamina to finish! But I did, and loved it! I surprisingly even remembered some of the steps! I've never experienced being high on any drug, but if it feels like what I feel like after Zumba I can totally understand how people become addicted. It makes time go by so quickly which for me is important when doing exercise. I don't wanna force myself to trudge through something I'm not enjoying!

Tonight at Weight Watchers the lesson was about asking for help. I think I do a fairly good job at this when it comes to my weight loss. I ask for help taking care of the kids if an activity isn't stroller friendly. My family and friends know what I'm doing and don't try to pressure me into bad choices. (Someone in the meeting actually said their friend peer pressured them into eating at a restaurant when they didn't want to... I'm thinking time for some new friends!) I'm lucky to have awesome supportive friends and family!

Biggest Loser anyone? I watched the premiere tonight and was so motivated by the end I was ready for another workout! Some of those people have had to go through some serious struggles in their lives and to see them trying as hard as they are is inspiring. The woman who lost her 3 year old son to cancer broke my heart! I don't think I would be able to function if I lost a child, let alone get up there in front of America and feel so vulnerable and open about such a sensitive subject as weight. My hat is off to this woman, those two things require bravery I'm not sure I have.

One last thing, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Jessica Wilson. She was hit by a car and killed on the BYU campus this past weekend. I worked briefly with her at Wal-Mart and while she was only an acquaintance it's chilling to hear about her untimely death. She was kind and soft spoken and very easy to get along with in the little time that I knew here. Without a doubt I'm sure she leaves behind many who love her. RIP Jess.
