Amy's Week 13

Nothing to report...didn't lose anything so I'm not really on my way to 163 by next Wednesday...We'll see how the New Year pans out. OH DEAR!!

I'm SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO stinking excited to be in Utah with my wonderful family. I can't wait to see everyone, especially little Lola Joy. Sometimes it makes me really sad that I can't be a part of the festivities and the See's Candies eating...I should probably be grateful for that part. Someday I'll be closer and be able to partake.

Love, Love, Love you all. Have a very Happy Christmas and a fabulous New Year.

Becky's week 12 & 13

During week 12 (as you know, Amy) my sister Julie had her baby!  I went up north to join in the celebration and GIRL! did I celebrate.  Donuts, Cafe Rio, Dr. Pepper, LOTS of See's Candy and just lots of yummy food in general.  I could not resist.  Usually, looking back I'm so disappointed in myself...not this time.  I just let loose and enjoyed the LOLA JOY festivities. She is so worth it!

I gained one pound - 183.8.  Not bad...I thought it would be worse, but not progress in the weight LOSS direction.  I also thought that the poundage needed time to register and I would be much heavier by the end of week 13.

Week 13 - 181.9.  Lost almost 2 lbs.  That's good.  It was Nathan's birthday this week and the Pepsi Christmas party so we got to eat out twice.  Both times I saved half my meal for the next day's lunch.  That was so I wouldn't over eat...but I still felt SO full with even eating just half.  Whenever I do that is makes me wonder how and why I usually finish my meals in restaurants.

Can't wait for Christmas!!!!

Can't wait to see YOU Amy!

Amy's Week 12

Lost nothing...(well .6) and I have no one to blame except myself!! I didn't do a whole lot this week. In fact, I didn't do anything. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty to do; I just didn't do anything that resembled working out.

And I'm ok with that! I'm proud of all the loss I've accomplished so has been HARD and it feels good.

There are just under two weeks left before I leave for the Christmas break and I'd like to lose at least three more pounds before we leave. So, hopefully at the end of the second week I can say I'm weighing in at 163, but for now 166 will have to do.

Amy's Week 11

Welp, this morning I am proud to say that 15 lbs are dead and gone. I'm not very excited about the next 15 lbs though. The last five pounds I've lost have been extremely hard to shake off, so we'll see how these next several pounds go.

I'm looking forward to the time I get to spend with my family this Christmas because I don't think I'll really be too focused on weight loss. I know I'll be conscious of it, but I won't be ridged about it. In just three short weeks, I'll be surrounded by the Fam!!! I'm so very excited.

Does that make sense??

Don't let the fat win...Becky's Week 10 & 11

Week 9 I was 180.8.  Week 10, which was Thanksgiving week and I didn't post but did weigh...184! I ate a lot...ok! 

Week 11 (today) 182.8.  That's a 1.2 lb. loss. I'm ok with that.  And yes, I probably could have done better if I would just exercise. It's too cold....and too carpety.  I didn't count calories like I said I was going to....but, I think I will this coming week. I finally printed out a bunch of charts...I'm ready.

I think about quitting a lot, even though Thanksgiving week I gave no thought to what or how much I put in my mouth.  I'm not quitting though. Seeking to be healthy and fit should not be an on again off again thing.  Sure there are times we eat more (Thanksgiving) but that is the exception not the norm.

Edmund Burke said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men (and women) do nothing."

Becky takes that philosophy and adapts it, "All that is necessary for poor health and chubbiness to triumph is that good men (and women) do nothing." 

If we don't try.  The fat wins.

I think I'll keep trying.
