Get lost number 3 and hello number 2 because I am out of the 300's! I started this weeks battle at a weight of 301 pounds and except for a couple of blips I had an excellent week. Lots of good food, water, exercise and sleep.

I lost 5 pounds this week! As of today I weigh 296 pounds baby! A sign that I am heading the right direction. I have lost a total of 31 pounds in 7 weeks which works out to an average of 4.4 pounds per week. My goal at the start was to lose 2 to 3 pounds per week so I am achieving that goal and then some.

These weekly weigh in results are so empowering. There are always struggles to make the best choices throughout the week, sometimes daily, but these Monday morning results coupled with the way I feel lately make all the sacrifices and effort so worthwile.

Before I started this journey I would have used the word “shame” to describe how I felt about myself. Today standing on that scale I would replace that word with the word “pride”.

I can do it!... correction.... I am doing it!
