McSkinny Friday!

Well good morning my lovelies. Why am I so chipper you ask? Well, that might just be because this weeks weigh in went much better than I anticipated!

Thursday Official Weigh In: 189.8


That is another loss of 3.6lbs or for those of you struggling to do the math (like me) - 11.2lbs in THREE WEEKS. Sorry for the caps, but were they not totally necessary?? I'm so proud of myself. Even after beating myself up over last weekend I still pulled off another awesome loss. My goal for this week has nothing to do with the scale (although I'll be damned if you get me to stop now) - I've got to stop being so hard on myself. I'm human. I'm going to make mistakes. But it is all about learning from those mistakes and not allowing them to happen over and over. Thanks, Josey, for the encouragement when I needed it last week. You all have been wonderful support.

My energy is officially back. I'm starting to pick back up at the gym too. Not 100% to where I was, but I'm getting there. It's all about one day at a time. Am I right or am I right? I think my vitamin D is really helping in this area too. I'm just feeling so much better.

Want to know what I love? My husband calling me skinny. It isn't true, by any means, but he's really noticing and keeps telling me how much he loves it. His new favorite past time is wrestling around with me (not in that way you dirty perves). I usually could hold my own, but now he just dominates me. Punk! Okay, part of me loves it when he picks me up and tosses me on the bed. Not going to lie about that. ::wink::

I would be remiss if I neglected to mention - I was able to buy a new dress shirt for work - in a medium. Hellstotheyes! I danced in the dressing room and took a full minute to admire my waist. Do you know how long it has been since I've been truly giddy in the dressing room? I mean, we all know that lighting dreadful and I still rocked it.

Three weeks down, three more weigh ins to go. Then, I'm on my own. Do you think I'll be ready?

I do.

More measurements this weekend. Stay tuned!


  1. Good job! Being happy in a dressing room is no easy task...they purposefully have bad lighting in them I think!

  2. ::happy dance::

    Keep up the amazing work!

  3. Awesome!!!!! Way to stick with it. I remember feeling that way when I started losing weight. My husband has NEVER said a bad word about my weight, but suddenly he was all "babe, you're looking super skinny? what's going on? Lookin good!"

    Those comments really help. :)
