Wednesday Weigh-In 7/1

**Update. Here's a great article from April about celebrating the small losses. We just need to remember to encourage each other through our gain weeks and our loss weeks!

It's been another rough week. Let's just say that June has been a rough month for weight loss. As of last night, we are home. So I can hopefully soon return to a normal routine with my sleeping, eating, and working out. Here are the weekly stats:

starting weight: 160.6
current weight: 160.4
loss: .2 lbs
original starting weight: 166.4
cumulative weight loss: 6 lbs.

I'm still not into the 150's yet, but I know I'm so close!! I haven't been able to work out regularly this week because I went to my parent's again while my husband was gone on a mission trip to an Indian Reservation in South Dakota. And then I joined up with the upper classmen for some evangelism training in the Twin Cities. It was so fun to be with them, but the lack of working out, the addition of eating out, and the strange sleep habits of teens on a mission trip have been wearing me down. I actually feel worse and I feel fatter more jigglier. I think my loss this week was loss of muscle tone. I'll take the loss, but I'd rather keep my muscles.

Now that I'm home and July is a fresh month, I will be getting my butt kicked inspired by Jillian to get back into shape...and preferably a more toned and well-balanced shape.

Current Goals:
1. Shred daily
2. Make healthy eating choices in the snack category
3. Only weigh on Wednesday
4. Get into the 150's!!

i laid down yesterday and my stomach fell over beside me. i'm not letting myself care too much about the extra baby lbs I need to lose, but i do need a little toning action. Maybe you'll have to call me in the mornings and be my jillian!

yes life often gets in the way.
my eating habits have been horrible, lots of eating out (which isn't typical).
can i ask if you have measured yourself? i have only lost 2 lbs in the 16 days i have completed, but i have lost 4.25 inches. considering muscle ways more than fat i figure my weight isn't going to be an accurate indicator.
and i only measure on tuesday!
you can do it!
btw- since reading your blog i have gotten 5 girlfriends to start shredding!
