Christmas Dress Challenge Weigh In Post

So it's Sunday. For me anyway. And this week I have:

- Eaten right. 
Well, mostly. I had nachos and cheese yesterday at the movies. They were calling my name. But I had a coke zero, instead of sprite - and I didn't add candy to the mix. I also didn't eat anything else for the rest of the day. I don't care if it was healthy or not - I was under my calorie limit of the day. Which makes me happy. 


- Actually exercised. Really, truly exercised. I walked. On purpose. Down pathways and up hills. I feel the awesomesauce.

- Slept. At Night. Like A Baby.

- Cleaned My House. I literally had about 13 loads of laundry to fold. So I did. Fold it, that is.


 I have met my goals. And I have lost weight.

I came into the challenge weighing 308. And I'm down to 303. That under 300 pounds thing is so close I can taste it. Or not taste it, depending on how you look at it. I wonder what under 300 pounds tastes like? Chocolate maybe? Or carrots?

Maybe...chocolate carrots?

The reason my weight loss ticker thingy says 17 pounds lost is because I began this whole thing at 320. I quit for the better part of a year, but have been back on track for a few months now. And I am 17 pounds lighter for all my trouble.

It feels good.

Well done, that's a fantastic weigh in for the week! I love it when I do a big clean, it's work but it's so satisfying afterwards.

I recently went under the 300 mark! I was so excited! Now I'm in the 280s. It sure was a lot easier putting all this weight on, wasn't it? LOL Oh, and under 300 tastes like freedom girl! Which probably tastes like those chocolate carrots. LOL

Way to go! Keep this up and you're going to have to change the name of your blog from flabbymcgee to fabulousmcgee (though I'm sure you already are fabulous!) Great results. Congratulations! Aren't you excited about week #2? I am. Blessings. Jackie

5 pounds is a great way to kick of a challenge. Keep that up and by Christmas, no one will recognize you! Love your sense of humor too - that always goes a long way when dealing with this weight loss thing. :-)
