Weigh-In ... Feeling Better

Today's Weight:  166.0
Loss/Gain: -2.5

Good-bye 2.5 lbs!  I knew you weren't here to stay.  :)

I thought of posting a couple times since Tuesday, but life is happening.  Imagine that.  I'm feeling much better than earlier in the week.  I have still been a little sleepy during the day, but I think it's partly due to my body catching up after some stressful weeks.  

Today I woke up feeling so much better than I have in a few mornings.  Hooray!  The sun is shining, birds are chirping and I'm going to go do some more spring cleaning I started yesterday.  Yes, I do find great joy in a clean house..especially when I haven't washed down my baseboards in almost a year.  yikes.  lol 

Here's a few fun NSVs that happened the past couple of days:

  • After much pondering at the store yesterday I put back down the Snickers bar and decided I didn't need it for lunch.  I came home and had some graham crackers and PB instead with my coffee.  It was actually more for a snack than lunch and I was proud of myself. 
  • Yesterday evening I went for a walk with my girls while my son was at soccer practice and wore my husband's Adidas workout pants, because it was cold and I don't have long workout pants ... and because it always thrills me to know I can wear his pants now.  *HUGE GRIN*
  • Earlier in the week I had a chat with my kids and we decided we are going to limit our sweets to one a day AS A FAMILY.  They agreed to help me finish up my weight loss and are willing to make some changes in their habits as well.  They agreed eating healthier is good, even if you don't need to lose weight.  My husband isn't much of a sweets person, so this is easy for him.  

I hope you have a good Friday.  Don't forget you still have time to enter my give away here

Have a good weekend and I will be back Monday with a winner of the book.  


  1. Awesome! Great week. Love the NSV's. And all the support you family is/will give you to bang off the rest of the pounds.

  2. What is this cleaning of baseboards?? :D

  3. Woot! So happy it's gone, forever gone.....go away bad pound (dream), go away! (remember from that movie!)
    Each day is a new day and God's compassion is fresh every day! love, MOMa

  4. I'm so glad you're feeling better, Leah! Those were awesome NSVs! (I totally get the pants thing. :) )

  5. You saying goodbye to those 2.5lbs was kind of like me saying goodbye to the size 18 capris I put on this morning because they wouldn't stay up! My first inital thought was fold them up and put them away. Then I thougtht to myself, Why am I keeping them? I'm never going to wear them again. So I threw them away :)

  6. great post :)
