**Day 76**

I'm thinking tomorrow is going to be a good weigh in - it better be!  I worked really hard this week on everything - getting more sleep, drinking more water, my eating, and exercising.  I didn't have one slip - not one! So, I'm hopeful.  I'm so hopeful that I'm hoping I'll be below 230.  I don't care if it's 229.5 - that's below 230, and I haven't been there in years.  Maybe the numbers shouldn't be such a big deal to me.  Maybe I should focus more on how I'm feeling, and how much better my clothes are fitting, but, for now, the numbers matter to me.  I don't want to be 230 or 220 or 210 or even 201 - I want to be in ONEderland!

I haven't been in the 100's since after my first daughter was born in Sept. 2000.  When I got pregnant with her I weighed about 220, and throughout my pregnancy I LOST 16 pounds - crazy, I know (the doctor said it was a PCOS thing)!  And then right after Brenna was born I weighed 198, but by December of 2000, I had gained 25 pounds!!!  So, the 198 didn't last long, and I will be so happy to see 198 again....and then I'll want to see an even lower number!  Ha.

I worked out twice today - in the morning I did the 2 mile WATP, and this evening I did my 1 mile WATP dvd. Tomorrow is day six of my 5K training - I'm already two weeks into it, and only have seven weeks left to go.  Will I really be running a 5K in seven short weeks??!!

Reason #20 to lose weight - to be able to sit on my hubby's lap once in awhile!  I weigh about 75 pounds  more than my hubby (at one time, it was 125 pounds more!), so there's no way I can sit on his lap - I'd hurt him!  And it's not like I would spend alot of time sitting on his lap, but there have been times when we've been at friend's houses, and there wasn't enough seating so we'd share a seat, BUT he would have to sit on my lap....yea, embarrassing!!  So, it will feel good when we can switch up that little scenario!


  1. Here's to a good weigh in, Shannon, but no matter what the scale says - you worked really hard this week and don't you forget it.

  2. Thanks, Darla! I'm going to try really hard to be happy with whatever I see on the scale tomorrow....well, unless it's a gain! :\
