Day 7 - Weigh-in Results: 303 lbs.

My first week's efforts have paid off, and I'm on my way, with 4 lbs banished!

I dropped 1/4" off my waist too.

It is wonderful to see the numbers heading in the right direction for a change. I'm trying to pay closer attention to how I feel, and look for the more subtle signs that things are improving, but it is certainly a good morale boost to see the scale going in the opposite direction. It isn't used to counting backwards!!

Perhaps, next week, I can leave the 3's behind.

So, I am four pounds closer to reaching my first mini-goal, with 26 more pounds to go!


  1. Congrats on a great start! You are so close to getting out of the 3's... how exciting for you. Maybe next week??!


  2. That is awesome, way to go!

  3. Oh, Loretta, that would be GREAT (getting out of the 3's next weekend)! But, since I'm in this for the long haul, trying to make true lifestyle changes to my eating habits, I'll take it as it comes. Thanks, to you both, for the congratulations! That was a nice little boost for me! I'm curious to see how long it takes for people to actually notice I'm losing weight. I haven't shared that with very many, and at my size, I recognize it can take a while to show (though I notice the changes). Anyway, it makes your kind words (Alycat26 & Rettakat) very much appreciated. I love that bloggers help encourage each other! xx Ann

  4. thats great Ann!

  5. Thanks! I'm on my way, Nancy! My incentive this next week is to see if I can drop below 300 ... I don't plan to see that number again!
