Day 13: New Year, New Me ~ Weigh In Wednesday

It’s that time again….The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans have pronounced today Weigh In Wednesday. The purpose of the weigh in is to support and encourage each member to keep moving. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate our success together or work out strategies to overcome a bad day. It’s also about accountability. Even if you vow to lose weight to yourself, having others to support you helps out a whole lot. I honestly don’t think I could have made it this far without the Sisterhood or the ladies from Mamavation (and Pete!).

So let’s find out how I’ve done since last Wednesday. Did the scale budge? Did it go down? Did it go up? Let’s see…

Drum roll, please… And the magic number is 158 lbs. I’m down a total of 8 lbs since I started trying to shrink my butt. Woot!

I don’t expect this rapid weight loss to continue but I’m sure happy that it’s happening right now. Nothing is a greater motivator than seeing the numbers on the scale go down. But I don’t want to simply focus on the number either.

There are other benefits that I’ve noticed:
~ I feel better
~ I have more energy
~ My stamina and endurance have increased

Overall I feel like I’ve taken control of my health and my body and I’m pretty happy about that.
