Weigh In #5 & #6

Before I talk about my weigh ins you must see what is happening while I have been working this morning on the computer.

As you can see my desk is pretty small so I have had to be really creative to use my mouse this morning. But no complaining here - I love these little boogers.

Okay I weighed in on May 5th - lost 2 pounds. May 12th - I lost 1 pound. I was thrilled that I lost anything because I did not do so well with my food last week. It is amazing to me how food is related to emotions. It is not that I went crazy, I just was not good at counting points. I did indulge at one of my favorite places for my Mother's day lunch. Since we had the girls and our boys we decided not to try to take them all out for lunch. We picked something up for them and then Jeremy picked up Zea's to go for us. YUMMY! Here is what I had (click on the links to go to my recipe blog for the recipes). I enjoyed every bite. Mmmm!

Spinach Salad w/ Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette
Roasted Corn Grits
Thai Pork Ribs

If you are counting I have lost 11 pounds. It was very encouraging to weigh this week and it gave me that boost I needed to get focused again. Since I am using this blog for accountability - I have to admit something. I have not exercised with Turbo Jam - not even once! I am very embarrassed to admit it because for how many weeks have I said that I was going to start that workout? I keep telling myself that if I would start the workouts how much further I would be in my weight loss. But at 5:30 AM when the alarm goes off, I would much rather sleep than lose weight. So here I am admitting failure and my goal is to start my workouts on May 19th (my quirk - must start on Monday). Do me a favor and ask me how my workouts are going next week. Thanks. :o)

I would love to hear how those who have joined me are doing with your weight loss. What tricks are you doing to make yourself workout? Where have you been successful and where have you failed? Even if you are not a regular commenter - leave me a message!

I am having a hard time getting up for my early morning exercise too. Maybe we can motivate each other. I would like to drop a clothing size. 11 lbs- wahoo!!! Way to go Jenn!

You are doing great! My secret to being able to get up and walk early is I have 2 different friends who take turns walking with me, it keeps me accountable. I'm up to 13 lbs lost! Josh has also lost 10 so he helps too. Keep up the good work.

I am so proud of you for losing so many pounds!

I'm not sure how I'm doing since I broke my scale... but it doesn't seem to be going very quickly... would love to just watch the pounds melt away!!! I need either more patience or more instant results!
