Burst Into Summer Week 1 Weigh-In and Update

Hey all of you in blogland and my fellow Sisters & Brothers over @ !  I am just estatic to be writing this post b/c for the first time in a long while I am feeling good about myself.  This past week was great!  I got in 3 runs and Monday's Bootcamp workout...boy did that bootcamp kick my a good way!  I am still sore and need to get on today's workout.  Those side plank dips were killer and I can totall tell I put my work in.

As for the weight I am currently @....drumroll please...............181.2!!!
My starting weight was 185, so I am down 3.8lbs for the week!  Woohoo!!!  I feel really good right now and hope to continue the ride.

I am not gonna lie, I struggle with the sugar!!!  There is not a cake, cookie, pie, or candybar out there that isn't calling my name...but for the past 2 wks I have resisted.  I really think a switch finally switched for me.  I even went to a wedding shower this weekend and had NO cake.  Now that is serious. 

I am currently reading a book called "Made to Crave, Fulfilling Your Deepest Desires with God Not Food" and it has changed my life!  The first day as I was reading I came across a scripture that is now my personal mantra...Everything is permissible...but not everything is beneficial. 1Corinthians 10:23.  Any time I get that craving or want that second helping or whatever it is I am struggling with, I just repeat that scripture to myself and find something else to do.  So, that is my week 1 check-in.  I hope everyone else has done great too.

Go TEAM 6!!

Burst Into Summer!!

Today is the official kickoff of my Burst Into Summer Challenge on the Sisterhood site.  I am on a team of 5 that I am sure is going to kick butt in this challenge.  I really like doing team challenges b/c it is harder for me to disappoint others when they are counting on me.

So, to kick off the challenge I had to weigh in.  My weight when I signed up for the challenge a wk ago was 188.  I normally don't do my measurements out of sheer laziness and also b/c I normally can't find a measuring tape, but this is such a long challenge that I wanted to know.  So, without further ado....

My official SW is 185...down 3 lbs.

Waist-45 @ largest part
Arms- R-13   L-12.5
Thighs- R-23.5   L-24

Current size is 14...barely.

I need to lose about 40 lbs. to be at my goal weight.  I know that I am not going to be at my goal by the end of this challenge...11 wks from now on Aug. 31, but  I will be that much closer :)

I am excited to start seeing so real results!!  Go Team 6!!!

The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

So I have tried so many different weight loss websites it is pathetic.  I have had some good results early on but never stick with it.  My latest site to try is... The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans  I am getting ready to start their latest challenge come Monday, June includes teams and bootcamp and it last 11 weeks, until sometime in August.  I am hoping that being a part of a team and accountable to them will help me stick with it.  Wish me luck!
