You Know What? This "Life Change" Stuff Is Actually Working.

OK, so I didn't update you on my weigh-in last week because I was confused. I weighed in at a Tampa branch and she calculated it I wanted to get it straightened out this week before posting. Boy, was I shocked tonight! My lil' team and I (including my hubby and my sis-in-law) had quite an evening! My sister-in-law lost 4.8 pounds, my hubby hit his 10% of his body weight goal and I found out that not only did I hit my 10% last week but I lost an additional 7.2 this week. Now, I must admit that I was sick Saturday night and Sunday and didn't eat much but SEVEN POINT TWO?!? It brought me to a total of 32. 4 pounds lost since May 13 (actually, 40 since April 30 but since those were before I started WW, I really can't count them in my "official" total...but, believe me, I'm very happy those pounds are gone, too!)

Anyway, I was pretty proud of our team this week. It wasn't easy but we all hung in there!

Now, for my biggest challenge yet: LAS VEGAS. Hubby and I leave tomorrow for 5 nights while I do an event there. Hopefully I'll walk a lot of calories off because nothing screams diet LESS than a week in Las Vegas. What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas when it comes to the eating part. It jumps on your hips and hitches a ride home.

Wish me luck.
