Wednesday Weigh-In 8/19

Look what I got this week:

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

That's right!! I've earned my 10lb button!! But not only that, I've lost a total of 12.2lbs!! Yay!!

starting weight: 157.4
current weight: 154.2
loss: 3.2 lb
original starting weight: 166.4
cumulative weight loss: 12.2 lbs!!

(I had to check my math twice and then get out the calculator because it just doesn't seem possible!)

I haven't really been working out too much (aside from playing outside with the boys and going for walks) but I have been watching what I eat. I'm not snacking like I used to and try to drink a glass of water when I'm first feeling hungry to see if I'm really just thirsty. And, I've been so busy that I haven't had time to think about snacks. ;) I do need to work on having breakfast everyday. That's still a challenge.

Keep up the good work, Sistas!!

**This is my 3-month anniversary with the Sisterhood. Let's compare stats:

May 20
weight 166.4 - TODAY: 154.2
waist 37 1/2 - TODAY: 37 (this has always been my problem area)
hips 42 1/4 - TODAY: 41
thigh 25 3/4 - TODAY: 24 3/4
chest 35 - TODAY: 33 3/4
bust 41 3/4 - TODAY: 40 1/4

That's a loss of 12.2 lbs and 5 1/2 inches. Yay!!
