Whew!

So, as of this morning, I've lost 9.7 pounds.  That's the official weigh in.  I appreciate MyFitnessPal.com (where I've been meticulously tracking my calories.  Ugh, but you know, it's working so what can I say) rounding up that number. It nice for the ol' mental cheerleader that urges me to keep going, you know?  Yay. 

Of course, when I came back to step on the scale (yes, I know.  Obsessive.  Let's not dwell, shall we?), after NOT yet having breakfast, but having gotten the kids off to school, I was .2 pounds lighter, and thus un-officially reached my Miss E's pre-pregnancy weight goal marker.  Yep.  I have not weighed this since I got pregnancy with Miss E, who is now 6.  I'm sure it will be more official by mid-week (aka: I step on the scale and it STAYS at that weight), but...

I'm taking a moment to rejoice.

Now, the new goal is the next 10 pounds which will put me at my pre-pregnancy weight with Miss A.  And then ONLY ten more pounds until I'm at my wedding weight.  I know, right?  It's so easy to put on, so grueling to take off.

I shall write more, later, about how I was THIIIIIIIIS close to cracking this week, and how because of that, I'm going to pull back on my crazy exercise schedule...just for the week.  I need to take a breather so I'm don't completely lose it.

In the meantime:  yay!

Way to go Laurenda! We rejoice in even the little numbers don't we?! Keep going! Nothing tastes as good as "skinny"feels. (But remember "skinny"is relative)

I have been activly working on my weight for a little over a year and have oh so far to go so I know how much work it is. Keep it up, you're awesome!

Way to go girl!! I'm finding it is so much harder to get off the more kids you have!! I was depressed the other day on the scale because I was closer to my pregnancy weight with Rex than I was to my weight before I had Rex...depressing...and most of those pounds were lost with all the fluid he had in my belly with him!! You are great inspiration!!
