My official weigh in isnt for a few more weeks, but today when I was at the gym I just needed to know if anything has changed. I took it upon myself to go in and get weighed. Sure enough the gal said "you've lost 4.5 pounds".

For the most part that weight loss is from Friday of last week until today. I was so excited when I walked out of that place. I had such a huge grin on my face that you could have turned off all the lights and still seen the glow.

I know that in some ways 4.5 doenst seem like a lot, but for me its a huge amount. I know that I cant expect this every week, but if I can do this for a few more weeks then I will be happy

:yay: :dance: Awesome Job...Good for you!!!! :dance: :yay:

4 1/2 lbs is a lot. :thumbsup: When I started to lose some weight I thought it didn't seems like a lot to everyone else, but to me it was huge too....Just keep doing what you're doing and you will love how you feel!!!


A tip that helped me....I don't know if you drink soda pop, but I "had" to stop drinking it all together (for medical reasons) and the weight just started dropping off....there are a lot of empty calories in pop!!!

Good Luck in your continuing weight loss....I am losing right with ya!!! :thumbsup:

Diet Pepsi is my biggest weakness. I have a pretty good chocolate weakness, but even that I can give up. When it comes to my soda its something that I will have to work on.

I wont say I cant do it, but it will take time

The biggest thing I'm doing is going to the gym and working out each day. I have been doing cardio every day and resistance training every other day. Along with that I have been doing 50 crunches at home every day

Way to go!!!! That is awesome!!!
I used to be a weight loss consultant for Jenny Craig, so I know that 4.5lbs. is very good. Especially for a woman. Average per week is usually anywhere from 1.5 - 3 lbs. And you will usually lose more in the beginning because alot of it is water weight...and don't ever get down if you hit a plateau....
Let me know if I can help you out with anything...

Keep up the good work!!!!!!! :yay: :yay: :yay: :thumbsup:

Peace....You go girl....every pound lost is good. I, on the other hand, have probably gained your 4.5 lbs. I am glad for you...continue to take it one day at a time....it took us years to get to this weight and will take time to come off. Best of luck. Blessings...

That is AWESOME! Keep up the good work and don't get discouraged even if one day you just go on a binge...I am so happy for you! I am in the same boat, I need to lose a little bit of weight...you said Diet Pepsi is your down fall? How come you can not drink DIET PEPSI...isn't that better than Reg. Pepsi or even Fruit Juices that usually have a lot of sugar??
