My Weigh - Losing 18 Pounds in 2 Weeks!

Make sure to take a look at My Weight Loss Blog Directory!!!

I really need to get the book, The 100 read.  The subtitle says COUNT ONLY SUGAR CALORIES AND LOSE UP TO 18 LBS IN 2 WEEKS.  

I'm not sure that I could lose that much, but I would happily take a lose of 5 lbs over the next two weeks.

These last few weeks I have not gotten anywhere on my weight loss.  All my fault, of course!  I was 1/2 pound lighter 3 weeks ago!  Then I had the bout with the birthday cake and I lost!  It was a total knockout!!  I have slowly come back from the 2 pound weight gain.  And I mean slowly!!  On the positive side I am 16.5 pounds lighter than when I started.  I am wearing a smaller size and I look thinner through my middle.  I feel better, too!!

I am just hoping something new to focus on will jump start my weight loss again.  I know I have eaten things that I should not have, but I really haven't eaten that much.  My exercise has been down.  I have been spending so much time working in my yard and running to baseball games, swim meets, and open houses for the last few weeks.

Next weeks goals: 

 Pay very close attention to what I eat, probably need to journal for a while so I can see what is slowing me down. 

Get some form of exercise in!  Need to get back to the kettle bell.  I was doing quite well when I was using it.

By the way:  I am not supported in any way, by this book.  I have received no compensation for writing about the book.  I just find the book very interesting and I am anxious to read and put into practice his methods to see if I can lose more weight and get healthier.

Now Heading For The 150's!!!!  It's slow going, but I will get there!!

Warning scale is 3 pounds light!  When I get below 150 I will buy a new scale.  Right now I like seeing the lower number!  It's kind of like the book The Secret.  This is my vision board.  If I lose 5 pounds this scale will say 160, I know it will be 163, but I'll see 160.  Okay, humor me here.  I am going to get there, this way I just get to see it sooner!
