Weigh In Wednesday: Happy Dance

Right now I feel like doing this (cue 0:46):

Why? Because I lost 4.6 pounds this week!

EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKK!!!

I have a huge smile on my face today. It’s so wonderful to get validation that my hard work is paying off. I just need to stay focused. If I’m being completely honest, I’d say that what I really wanted to “treat” myself with was a piece of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. No joke.

Instead, I treated myself to a skinny cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks (just 90 calories!)

I have done the 30 Day Shred 4 times in the past week, and walked for a total of 4.7 miles. Waaaay more activity than I’ve had in the last year (sadly) and I have been very good about watching what I eat.

For example, last night I met up with a bunch of FitMKE peeps at AJBombers for a blogging meeting. I got the Baked Stuffed Mushroom “burger” (sauce on the side) and a small side of onion strings… of which I ate about 10. Talk about self restraint and only eating if you’re hungry. A few weeks ago, I would have cleaned the plate of onion strings. Seriously. And I would have ordered a large.

I think for me to succeed, it’s going to be all about moderation and not depriving myself… which is exactly what I did. 🙂

I’ve lost 4.6 pounds in the last week and 6.8 pounds in 2 weeks. Want previous stats? Click here.

  1. Awesome Amy!!!! I’m so proud of you! You’re really inspiring me to try to do better too so that next time we get together we’ll both be skinny in photos!

  2. Wonderful news, Amy! For me, when I see results that spurs me on to continue. The danger is giving up when you don’t see the results and knowing you are still doing the right thing!

    I’m very, very happy for you!
