6 pounds (2.7 kilos) gone! And a goal in place...

Yay! I went from 284.69 lbs or 129.4 kilos last week to 278.74lbs or 126.7 kilos this week. That's down 2.7 kilos from my weigh in last week. That's roughly a 6 pound loss (5.94 lbs) this week. That's a whole lotta weight in one week for somebody who isn't competing on the Biggest Loser. LOL! WOW! And that was with only 4 days of logging my food and being held totally 100% accountable for everything that passes my lips. That's with just some light exercise with my Wii a few times a week. Imagine what the following weeks can bring when I stick to this and add even more intense cardio!

Last night Marco gave me my first goal to work towards and I'm chasing after it like wildfire. When I lose my next 5 kilos (11 lbs for you non-converters), from today's number, I will get a massage! I have been DYING for a massage since I was pregnant and have just never made time for myself to get one. In fact, I planned on getting one while in the US over the vacation but it just never happened. YAY! Seriously, I'm sprinting to that goal and hope to reach it within the next 3 weeks. I told him he may as well buy me the certificate now and he'll have it for when I accomplish my first real goal in this new weight loss adventure.

I'm seriously just giddy this moring. Yay me. I hope you all are having successful healthy weeks!

Breakfast -
coffee with splenda and 1 tsp creamer
1/2 cup dry oatmeal made with 0% fat milk (finally remembered it!)

2 (8oz) glasses of water

coffee with steamed milk and one pack of sugar
Sultana fruit biscuit snack thingy (165 cal)

2 cups of soup, one veggie, one cream of mushroom
2 crackers (35 calories each)
1 small slice of whole grain bread (the end piece)
cucumber and red bell pepper slices
2 (8 oz glasses of water)

snack -
1 orange

more water.

Chili- an interesting chili, made with chili beans, peppers, onions and peaches. It's oddly delicious! The best part, it's 49 calories per 100 ml, the container it comes in is 500 ml so for two cups of chili I only intake 245 little bitty miniscule calories! I used to eat snacks bigger than that!

woohoo for a really decent eating day for me!

Way to go Sarah!! You're back on track and what a goal to look forward to....wish I could go with you for the massage...we never did get to go, did we? I really can't believe you used the phrase "...and for my 2nd snack"....must be a family trait! I'm proud of you sweetie!

I think rewards like that are great! It gives you something short term to work towards, so that you don't get overwhelmed in the race to the finish! Good job!
