Robyn:: weigh in #2

I'm feeling really emotional today! This whole weight loss thing is much more than a physical journey for me. I really am trying to maintain a positive attitude. I'm trying to believe in myself. I’m reminding myself that my value isn't measured in pounds

I had out of town visitors over the weekend and then the Super Bowl. I ate a few things I shouldn't have including a chocolate cupcake and some full sugar soda. (I might have sent a picture of it to Hope while she was at the gym. I sent her a picture of veggies a couple days later though. :)) Weekends are always hard for me. I really got back on track on Monday though and have counted every bite I've taken since then. I have eaten more veggies this week than probably my entire life. 

I increased my workout time. I am leaving everything I have every time I go. I'm talking serious blood, sweat, and tears. Okay, not blood really, but seriously sweat and I could cry being the chubby girl at the gym. My hubby tells me to work out like a man. :) I am pushing myself. I also started some strength training at home. Push ups, sit ups, lunges, squats, leg lifts, and light weights. I can feel my body changing. My attitude and strength are changing too.

So, Friday is here and my weigh in time has come.

I am down 1.4 pounds this week

Which means a total of 10 pounds down for me. I just have to do that 6 more times and I'll be at goal. 

I am incredibly grateful for all of the support we are receiving. I am getting messages from old friends I haven't heard from in years. It has been so uplifting. This is a really scary thing for me, to share this journey with the world. But, it's changing my life. We are doing this. I am so thankful to have Hope in my corner. 

P.S. At my doctor's appointment this week my blood sugar was down. :) I'm still pre-diabetic but not for long. That’s a huge success!!!! 

Here I am down 10 pounds. Do I look skinnier? :)

I am trying to training to run a 5K and I am far from ready I have never done anything like this before. I have no self motivation to eat better and loose weight so I am trying to make life changes. I am so happy for you and I think its great that you are being so public about it. I think holding yourself accountable helps. At least it does for me! If you ever want to go running let me know!

Jessica!! I would love to go out for a run/walk with you. It is so much more fun with a friend and I definitely get tired of the gym. Let's do it!!!! :)
