Saturday weigh in...

I wish I could post my actual weight...but I'm just not ready for that.  Give me a few more pounds...promise.

There is a praise...this week I'm posting a weight loss of....drum roll please....

 5 lbs. from last week.  

That would be a grand total of 10 lbs since I started March 21.  It takes about 25 lbs to equal a dress size with me being so tall (5'10" 1/2).  Right now I wear a 20 or a 22 on the bottom and a 22/24 on the top...watch out size 18/20...here I come.

Things to improve next week.
Make it to the gym 3 days... I need to drink MORE water...lay off the sugar and sweets when offered...
stay away from wheat products...
keep sweets out of the house!

Things I have improved...we are eating out less at fast food...I'm drinking more water (but I still don't like it as well as apple juice)...I am exercising more and I'm making healthier dinner (I haven't friend chicken in a while).

Pray for me as I incorporate these things into my life. My knee has been hurting after going to the gym...but I know if I take off more weight it won't hurt as much. 

A healthier me means a healthier wife and mother for my family.  It also means more energy to get things done.  Thanks to everyone who's been praying for me and the encouragement...it really helps.

Blessings.

Oh Lorrie, that is WONDERFUL!!!! Congratulations my friend! Keep up the awesome work! Wow, I wish I could lose 5 pounds! I seem to be stuck. Of course the Muskateer bar I ate this morning isn't helping matters.

Love!
Beth

Good job lady!
Two things: I switched to "fizzy water" (sparkling water) at the New Year instead of soda. I get mine at Trader Joe's. I highly recommend it if blah water doesn't do it for you.
And, don't ever let yourself feel guilty, if you do and maybe you don't, for "depriving" your family of treats and so forth when you are trying to keep them out of the house for yourself. THEY WILL SURVIVE. Our kids get more treats that they need anyhow, between school, church, friends' houses, etc. So go ahead, deprive the little monsters, they'll survive LOL

CONGRATS!
You are doing great and I have kept you in my prayers and thoughts though I haven't been doing so great myself on the diet=)
I know you will continue to lose and be healthier for yourself and your family.

and how about flavoring your water?
i put lemon in mine...sometimes oranges get squeezed in.
my friend slices apples and puts him in hers.
grapes are good too!

Congrats!! You can also get those little packets that flavor the water as well. I think Crystal Light makes them along w/ a few other companies. I've tried it :)
