I'm feeling pretty positive!

I’ve done really well this week! On Wednesday, I kept good track of what I ate, and my calorie count for the day was 1510! That is smack dab in the middle of my calorie target! YAY! Then I did my swim class which was really nice. I so enjoy getting into the water for an hour a couple of times a week. There really is nothing I like better than floating around in water, and relaxing for hours!

And today, I’ve done well today too. My calories today were 1409 and I felt fairly satisfied and successful! Today, I worked out a brief strength training schedule. I figure I will do weights every other day to give my muscles a rest between times. It took me about 23 minutes to do two sets of 6 exercises. I made a chart to track how much I do now, and each night will do the same, and every week, I’ll up the exercises or reps a bit. I was bragging to Jeff a little bit about the “gun show” I’m gonna have. I get such a kick out of the terms ‘gun show’. It sounds so great, and I think that’s what I’m aiming for. I always wanted great arms!

Just for fun tonight, I weighed myself, to keep track of how I’m doing, and my scale said 280 even! The coolest part of this is, while my scale is two pounds below the weight watchers scale, I weighed myself on my scale first! I’m not entering it as my official weight, but I’m feeling pretty excited.

I’m going to do well this weekend, and have another great loss and beat Jeff’s butt!


  1. You are doing great with your calories and weight loss. I am inspired after my bad week. You have really help my attitude today. Thanks,

  2. Good work! I'm sure you're going to have the best gun show ever.
