New You 2011: Week 5

Week 5

I was sick last week and also taking care of two very sick little girls,
so I wasn't able to share my progress!
Actually being sick was a benefit for my weight loss.
I didn't eat much, not because I wasn't hungry.. on the contrary.
I didn't eat because time just didn't allow!
Olivia was extra needy and Lillian (my very independent toddler) was clingy too!
This week has been a challenge!
The kiddos are feeling much better and so am I..
and my appetite seems to want to catch up for lost time!
I have given in and ate out a few times but tried to restrict myself on
what exactly I eat!

But good news.. I am a LOSER.
Yeah. you heard me!
I lost!

My initial weight was 221.
This week I weigh 214
I have lost 7lbs so far!
I still have a goal of 150 by the end of the year
but my short term goal is to get under 200!
Not much further to reach that goal!

How has your journey been?
I'd love to hear your story!
