It’s Good to be Back on Track!

Amazing the difference a week makes! So last week I decided enough was enough and I started eating a little better.  By Friday I was tracking every calorie again and it feels so good.  My body feels happy and has bounced back to its old self so quickly. The scale has responded very nicely too!  I’m not sure how this is possible but I have lost 7 pounds this week. Really? Well, I took a picture of the scale for proof.  Now we’ll see if it stays down tomorrow too.  My big motivation is being a good example for the ladies in my support group.  I want all of us to succeed and I can’t wait to know how every ones week is going. I even wore my skinny dress to church yesterday.  I am so thankful for new beginnings and small miracles!


What is amazing is how much my body has changed.  I have gained so much muscle that I can still fit into this dress 10 pounds heavier than when I fit into it last year. Thank goodness for bootcamp!!! Dan says I don’t need to lose anymore weight but I’d like to see 185 again.  We’ll see how I feel after another couple weeks of really watching my eating.  I am feeling the excitement and the adrenaline rush of losing weight again and I love it!!!!



  1. I so want this feeling again your right that is a skinny dress and it looks great. I am so excited and happy for your success again.

  2. Thanks Barb! You'll feel it again! It has taken me since February when I had surgery to get it back. It is absolutely worth it!!!

  3. I started tracking my calories on My Fit Buddy to figure out why I haven't been able to lose anything, and surprise surprise, it's because I eat too many calories. The first few days I lost a few pounds, but was hungry all the time. Last week, I was using a new run logging program on my iPhone, and couldn't figure out why the calories burned was so high. I felt free to eat more, so I wasn't hungry all the time, but the weight loss stopped too. Finally figured out that my weight was entered as kg instead of lb, so it was figuring out how many calories someone twice my weight would burn doing the same activities. LOL. So this week it is fixed. Back to being hungry today. I'm trying to eat a little bit every two hours to prevent getting too hungry, but I'm still feeling like I'm not getting enough. I only set MFP to lose .5 lb per week, but it's going to take a while to figure this out . . .
