Weekly Weigh In

Well today is the second weigh in for our "dream of a light Christmas"
Since starting the sisterhood I have really made an effort of changing my eating habits. Although this past weekend was rough (with having the boredom munchies) I still managed to shed 3# . With one week of stronger portion controls, a wee bit of exercise and a huge amount of water under my belt I am feeling really, really good about it all.
My total weight loss goal is 50#, but for this challenge it's 7#. It's a stretch but it's so worth the try. I'm already down 3# for the challenge itself but have lost 7.5 # since the site began. Nice, real nice!
If you did't know I am writing about it all over here.You can visit and cheer us all on over here and check back often as we review our favorite products, share recipes and our weight loss journey together as the sisterhood(+1 boy) of the shrinking jeans.
You can follow me on twitter and the shrinking jeans crew!

That's awesome. And I don't think 7 lbs for the challenge is a stretch at all. Stick with it. You may surprise yourself.

I think 50 is a reasonable goal too! My goal was 100 and attainable!

Congrats on the 3, it is a fantastic amount for one week!

Way to go Crooked! I think you're doing a fabulous job and 7 pounds should be a cinch! I think the key to set attainable goals.

Keep up the good work ;)

I too had pizza among other high calorie goodies but the portion control saved me. We may not lose every week but we're taking healthy little steps and are in this together, so cool!

Hope you have a great week, wish me luck too!

Losing 7.5 pounds during the holidays is pretty amazing!

Teresa said...

You are my new hero. I totally think you can reach your 7 pound goal. Keep doing what your doing and add a little more exercise here, and some veggies there and you'll shed the other 4 in no time!
Congrats!

Mommy Mo said...

THREE pounds?! You are AWESOME.

I am so proud of you! I plan to get on board with you soon! I really need my jeans to shrink. Keep up the good work. This is the hardest time to shed pounds so I commend you for this.
