Weigh In Wednesday

I run with the Sisterhood Ahhh, another Wednesday another weigh in. I had the best of intentions last week after maintaining. Well sometimes the best laid plans don't work out. I am up. Sniff, sniff. Two Whole Pounds. I am disappointed in myself, but honestly it wasn't a surprise. Like I said yesterday graduation cake is soooooo good. Over the course of the weekend I ate 3 pieces. In my defense all three of my pieces only equaled one piece for Gary, but he doesn't have to tell anyone when he gains a little here or there.
Although I am sad about the gain, I am already getting over it. I realized that having the sisterhood to turn to and help me keep accountability in my eating is a great way not to let one weeks slip ups because one month and then 6 months and then 20 extra pounds. So I haven't lost consistently yet, but the challenge isn't over and at least I am paying more attention to what I eat and working out much more consistently, and all of that together is giving me more self confidence that I can do this.
Sometimes, ok usually, I see the end result and get frustrated by the steps along the way to get there. But this being more challenging that I thought it would be I am seeing that it is the everyday choices that need to be better to make the end result a reality. I am still hanging in there, this week will not completely throw me off my game. I will get back up, brush myself off and try again.
On the plus side though I have been good about exercise the last 2 weeks. I have progressed to the 2nd section on my step aerobic tape and I have been walking a lot more and mowing the lawn, push mowing. I am feeling good and more powerful. And besides I am on vacation next week, so I have two weeks before I will be back here to share a weigh in. Imagine what I can do in two weeks. Look out scale, your going down!
Check out the rest of the sisters! Way to go everyone!


  1. i've gained too, we've just got to look at the potential of this coming week, rather than our failures of this past week.

  2. Mowing is great exercise and I love your attitude, shake it off and keep it moving!

  3. I have recently come across the sisterhood site. Love it!! I am so glad we are all there for accountability! I look forward to seeing your progress! You can do it!

  4. Carrie, your attitude is great! Yes, we all slip up and have gains, but as long as we keep going it will be okay. Don't ever give up, because you can get to where you want to be. It is a lot of hard work, but you'll learn so much along the way, and you'll be a better person when you come out on the other side :)

    Have a great vacation!!
