Sisterhood Weigh In

I fought the scale - and *I* won this week...despite some really terrible, horrible, no good, very bad PMS.

I've noticed that the first weeks of weight loss for me are usually pretty rewarding. Since I am immediately dropping all the bad food (ice cream, chips, creamy diary, cheeses, etc.), the first few pounds come off pretty easy.

But, it's gonna get harder so I'm digging in for the long haul - especially since I have no real exercise options working for me at this point in time. (So not a winter person - in another life, I must have been a bear. LOL) The plan is to fix the food issues first and, by the time I hit that eventual first plateau, it will be warm enough again to get back outside.

But, as of last Sunday, I've lost 4.5 pounds since the first of the month. That is an awesome start and I'm thrilled but I have a *really* long way to go so...one baby step at a time...one foot in front of the other...one day at a time.

Way to go, Beth! That's awesome.

Do you like doing workout videos? It's an option for the winter time and I guarantee the kids will have a blast watching you do them. Mine do, LOL!

4.5 is great. I would love to have that off this month. In December I am always happy to maintain. If you are looking for a good excerise routine for at home I would recommend The Transfirmer. I worked wonders for me. I love it.
