Week 1 Points

Woo-hoo!!! I rocked this week. Then again, I tend to start out strong and then fizzle big time at the end, so hopefully I'm not just setting myself up to do that AGAIN! Then again, this is my first time to do the challenge not pregnant, so that'll help ...

Anyway, I get a bonus (I'll add it in next week) for losing weight -- I am at 225.6, which is almost six pounds down. I didn't expect that, but I'll take it. I think the biggies for me are not overeating dinner (which I tend to do often) and not eating my ice-cream after 8. Who knew it'd be that "easy"? Now to stick with it. My points this week were 69. I'm impressed with myself and only hope I can stay strong. In the first challenge it was between me and one other lady who was doing awesome (she had it in the bag), and at the end I fizzled and the other lady dropped out never to be heard from again! (I really don't know what happened to her -- since it was someone I didn't know I never found out! :) So, the person in a FAR third place throughout the competition -- who looked like they didn't have a chance -- won the pot. I say that to encourage everyone to keep on trying, because even if you don't win the pot and "only" lose 15 pounds it's all worth it. :)

Happy Labor Day ... may it be healthy and happy.
