I Rocked it!

Last week, I had a small hiccup.  The scale was not kind to me but it could have been worse.  A whole lot worse!  I ended up gaining what I had lost the week before.  0.8 lbs.  Yeah, yeah I know, its not a big gain at all but still not something you want to see on the scale after working hard all week.

Flash forward to this past Thursday.  My next weigh in day.  I was a nervous nelly even though my scale at home was showing positive results but who knew what would happen between home and the meeting. LOL
I had no reason to be nervous.  I am down 4.2 lbs for a total of 110 lbs lost! I am getting further and further away from 200 lbs and I couldn't be happier!  I will soon be only considered overweight and not obese! So close! Original BMI was 47.3.  I am now 30.1 and then only 1.3 lbs to go to be considered only overweight!

I do attribute my loss this week to changing up my workout routine.  I had been doing 70 minutes of WATP and it had been working for me up until about a month ago when my losses were quite small compared to what they had been and with my gain last week, I was pretty sure that was what it was.  This past week, I started alternating The Biggest Loser Workout: Cardio Max and The Biggest Loser Workout: Power Sculpt
and how it worked!  My legs were sore for over a week! Even now, my legs and arms are jelly afterwords.  Guess its working, huh?! LOL And there is nothing like Jillian Michaels yelling at you even if its on DVD! LOL. Now if only I can get my head wrapped around the fact that even though I am only doing a 30 minute workout, it is just as intense as the 70 minute Walk Away The Pounds workout. I am already researching my next workout dvd's to get when these two stop working again.  The only problem I have is I am completely unco-ordinated.  If I can't do the moves the first time around, I am likely to not continue it.
Would you believe it if I told you I got my husband, whom has fought me tooth and nail to exercise himself, finally got up on the couch today and did the half hour Cardio Max with me! He complained the whole time but at least he stuck it out! LOL Will see how he feels in the morning....

Anyhow, I am off to catch some zzz's now as I am fighting a slight cold.  First one all winter and thankfully isn't throwing me for a loop... yet!



Diane, congratulations! You're doing amazing!!!


Wow, congratulations! You're my inspiration to lose that much. I want to be 150 lbs ultimately, that's 52 lbs left to lose. I wish I could keep my motivation!
