My Weight Loss Progress

Wednesday, January 19, 2011


Okay so I am shooting for a two pound loss this week. That will put me at 184. I just got done watching Biggest Loser and one of the contestants wanted to weight under 350 for their way in; it had been years since he weighed less. He wrote 349 on his inside forearm with a permanent maker. It reminded him every day of what his goal was. It was a lofty one too. That was a 15 pound weight loss for one week. He ended up almost making it and weighing in at 350 (a 14 pound loss).

Well, I am about to do the same thing and set a lofty goal. We all know I am not on the Biggest Loser so 15 pounds would be totally unrealistic but I believe that I can lose 5 pounds and see 179 by the next weigh in on Jan 30th. It has been 10 years since I have seen the 170s. I'll take a picture of my arm and post it!

This weekend we are headed to Chattanooga for a weekend of family fun. We are going to the aquariums and the Children's Discovery Museum. We will be staying in a hotel one night (got one with a pool so the kids can swim). This will mean that I have to be very careful because we will be eating out for those meals on Saturday and Sunday.

I know that I can do it! So excited to get out of the 180s!!


  1. Your little getaway sounds so fun! But I totally know you can DO IT when it comes to food! What an awesome goal!! GO GIRL!

  2. I think everyone in the competition should "go BL" and write on our arms and email the pic in support of Cheryl!
