This week in photos

Well not much to report.  Kind of feeling like this...




Only lost 3 pounds, thought I had a really big week honestly.  I was really stringent with my sodium and spicing this week.


My counselor was angry with me for feeling down with myself.  She said that I am ahead of schedule and I should be ...






But I still feel exasperated and manipulated by this diet...




But this is another week and another chance to feel like a rockstar...




Or a demented pornstar...








Because next May brings...




Including new fashion...



Ok, so I'm not insane, how 'bout this?








So today's a new day, and here's to a great week!

3 Pounds is amazing!! You should be jumping for joy! I hope I can lose 3 pounds next week. Probably have to cut off my arm though. Whomp whomp.

Hi! Found you through the Hot 100 Challenge. I've been reading your older posts and enjoyed your honesty and humor. And your "demented porn star" looks very much like my evil doofus named Stuart. Jack Russell terriers? No, Jack Russell Terrors, I say. So rock on with it, and I'll be cheering you on!

I love the way you use pictures to tell your story. Don't be so down on yourself 3 lbs is amazing for one week. Just keep up the great work and you will keep seeing great results. Good luck and I'll definitely be back to read more of your posts.

I love your pictures too, but i'm with Bethanny, i would love to lose 3lbs a week, but the doctor says losing any more than 2lbs a week is not fat, it's water or muscle you are losing, so i'll stick with my average 1.5 or 2lbs in that case- i don't wanna put it back on. Ps, please send me a link to purchase that cute blue all in one swimsuit....not...erk!!

I have to go against the grain and say that I understand how you feel about the three pounds. Yes, three pounds a week is freakin spectacular! That being said, when you work really hard and stick to an extremely structured plan you tend to want those big losses, I know I do.

Good for you, and loved the pictures. How did you get your dog (I think?) to cooperate? Love it!

Just Me said...

Love the pupper pics. And 3 lbs is a big weight loss....wow. You are doing really well...checking your weekly numbers. Go PM Go!

Suit #2 is super cute. Not sure I will be able to bare my tummy even when I am at goal. Maybe with SX. I have what I described as a semi defalted man belly. Nothing sexy there. 3 pounds is great. I know you are on a super strict program but 3 pounds is still a great week. Sometimes our bodies have to adjust to the loss and reclaibrate.

Thanks for all your thoughts everyone!

Bethanny-girl are a losing machine-no need to chop your arm off just yet!

Charlotte-good to know you. Yes, Sadie is a demon spawn, but at least she makes for good pictures! But never again shall we get another JRT... ;-)

Christina-Thanks for the well wishes-I'm glad you like the pics, I love putting them up, too!

Hey LAAC-I always worry about losing muscle, especially since I am so active, so I was happy that I get my body comp tested every month to make sure I am not losing too much lean mass. That is a great point, though...This was one big reason why I refused to not work out when i started dieting, it is just so easy to lose muscle if I'm not.

Margene-thanks for the kind words! I don't want to sound like I am looking for congrats or support in these posts, I just get so dang frustrated when I am working REALLY hard. You know?

Angie-Thanks for the understanding. I just wish the losses were bigger now, because I know at some point they are going to get TINY. None of the pics are manipualted except for the bow on fudge's head. You can kind of tell I tortured her on that one... ;-)

Just Me-Thanks for the puppy love-they keep me sane on rainy days like today... I am going to have to modify my Hot 100 goal, as I fear I won't lose more than 36 more pounds in the next 100 days at this rate. Not that that is bad, I am just REALLY impatient.

Allan said...

Jennifer said...

3 lbs is great!!! I am three pounds away from my mini goal and have been for months now!!! Keep positive. You are doing it! Oh, and the pics are great.

Diane said...

I'll take 3 lbs.! Dieting is just like life, you'll have good days and you'll have bad. Keep moving forward!
