Yes, folks, it is Thick Thursday, and I weighed in this morning at 188. Making that a 2 pound weight loss. I also lost 2 inches in my waist, 2 inches in my chest and 3/4 inches in my hips!

Arms: 14 1/2"
Thighs: 26 1/2"
Ok, allow me to bitch and then celebrate!
I was honestly hoping for a 5 pound weight loss. In the past, the first 20 pounds dropped off like nothing. But I may just have to accept that my body is different now. I may need to do more "shocking" to it to get the ball really going. I also decided to add the measurements cos sometimes that nasty little scale won't budge on that number, but that doesn't mean you're not losing inches and toning. So can I get an "Amen!" for some inches lost?!?!
My mentality these past (almost) 10 months has been, "Ugh, I've been walking and eating right, and still only losing like a pound or two. This is not worth it!" So I would say screw the healthy eating and PIG OUT!! You know what that did?!?!? Made my weight go up. So I then gained the 1 or 2 pounds I'd lost and then some! And that vicious cycle is what got me right here! So, since I am so pumped and amped about losing this weight, that mentality is gone! So I only lost 2 pounds in a week's time, THAT'S 2 POUNDS LOST!!!!! I'm not gonna stop or give up or back down. If anything, this makes me want to push harder!
Here's what I've been doing this past week:
Walking/Jogging every morning pushing my little man in the stroller
Light Calisthenics prior to evening walk (jumping jacks, push ups, planks, ssquats...)
Evening walk pushing the stroller (this is a little more casual and slower paces than my morning gig!)
Smoothie for breakfast (recipe posted in a prior post)
Eating about 1200 calories a day
My plan this week is to go BALLS TO THE WALL and push myself. Whether it's pushing myself to go a little further on the jogging interval in the morning, or pushing myself to extend my time doing calisthenics, or more pushups, or more squats, or pushing myself to amp up that evening family walk (the hubs has long legs, so let's try to make him strive to catch up to my short and quick power walk!) or pushing myself to NOT eat those 2 slices of delicious Zucchini Bread I baked last night!
You gotta work to get those results!
**I just feel it should be told that I haven't had my eyebrows waxed in a month and they are severely taking over my forehead and eyeball space! So, I'm pretty sure those themselves weigh about 2 pounds. I'll work on getting them waxed for next weeks weigh-in!**
