Weight loss Wednesday

Last Saturday, I weighed in and that pesky pound had crept back. I'd really like to lose 7 pounds but lately I'm going back and forth between 6 & 7. It's getting frustrating! I know that my workouts need to be a little more intense and my nutrition needs to be better. Weight loss has been a very long journey for me. The destination is never found but I keep heading towards my goal.

I know I'm not the only person on this journey. Does anyone have any encouragement or tips to share? The photo is from last weekend's bachelorette party when I ate tons bit didn't eat the cupcake. Yay me!
Its Hump Day!

    1. I did not eat that cupcake and I did not eat the cookies offered at work today. Shocking, right?

  2. I think it's great that you're not giving up even though you're frustrated! I find that mixing up my exercise routine a little bit or downloading some new songs for my gym playlist makes me work a little harder. Hang in there!

  3. Yummm! I usually don't eat icing. Why does it look so good in red? Just kidding Esther. Good woman. It will have a positive effect passing up on the real bad stuff. I am having a superfood orange juice shake for breakfast. Consist of spinach, kale , wheat grass. Blue algae apple and orange juice and my choice of fruit yogurt . Takes a moment to get used to. but it makes you full of energy and keeps you full for the whole day.

  6. Weight loss is always so tough. no matter how much you have left to lose. I would say try doing something different. Go kickboxing or switch up your diet for a week or two. I know I always do best when I switch it up. Good luck girly!

    1. I have switched things up and now I'm saying no to free food and desserts, especially cookies. It's been tough. I'm not drinking soda pop any more. Sad. :( I'm hoping these changes will make a difference.

  8. Losing weight is probably one of the hardest things to do. The best thing is determination and self-discipline! If you make sure to tell yourself that you really want this and put your mind to it, you can do it! Hang in there girl :)

  9. Good job for not eating the cupcakes. They looked good!! I have been at a few parties this summer that have had the most amazing looking cupcakes. A lady from my church makes them.They look just like the Pinkitzil ones. But I did not eat any of them at the parties this summer. Sooooo hard!!!

I love all comments, questions, and positive feedback. Constructive criticism is questionable. Joking, a little. :)
