Trim Up Tuesday - Week Two

Here we are at week two and I haven't given up yet. In fact, I'm more motivated now than ever. My mom and I took our before pictures when I was at her house this weekend. I'd like to believe that the camera adds on what you don't see when you look in the mirror, but you can't argue with something that's sitting right in front of your face.

Since quitting smoking, I've now put on 20 pounds and it's time to lose that plus more. I've done it before (right after Ryan was born) and I can do it again! As of now I want to lose 80 pounds. (Don't see it? Look again at my midsection and thighs. OMG, I can't believe I'm being this honest.)


(because putting your hands on your hips makes you look a lot thinner - lol)

I'll be printing this picture off and hanging it on my pantry door. And just in case that still isn't enough to keep me from opening the damn door, I may hang a picture of my backside inside the door, right on the snack shelf. (Thanks for the idea, Grandma!)

Now that brings us to today's reality check... Please hold while Lynda goes and strips of anything that may add any extra unwanted not really there ounce and then weighs herself... Ok, I'm back (and yes, I'm wearing clothes) here we go...drum roll please...

Trim Up Tuesday, April 1, 2008


  • I lost 1 pound this week! (I wasn't expecting to lose any, so yay for me!)
  • I am 79 pounds away from my ideal weight.


  • I did 2 hours and 15 minutes of cardio this week.


  • I did not meet my last goal.
  • My Last Goal Was: To eat healthier and snack less. (I blew it by going to Chicago for the weekend.)
  • My new goal is: Let's try this again. To eat healthier and snack less.

So there you have it. One pound gone, even on top of all that bread I ate last night. You cannot put bread in front of me and expect it to stay there! Especially if it's from Avanti's.

Want to join the fun at Trim Up Tuesdays?

So when are you going to join me in my misery at the gym? Slacker!

Awesome! Good job on that pound! All my pounds were stubborn last week and refused to budge :-)

I loooooovvvveeee bread. In fact, I would name bread my favorite food, and I can make a meal out of it. I often eat more bread than anything else. I've gotta try this Avanti's place if I'm ever in Peoria again!

It's the best sweet bread you'll find anywhere. Just add butter and watch the pounds slick to you like glue. LoL.

Jamie said...

OMG, Avanti's bread. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

I think this is a great idea! If I were more disciplined, I would definitely join in. Until that day comes, I'll just cheer you on.

Awesome, Lynda! I'm having a pretty good week and have managed a way to fit even some decadence into what I eat once in awhile, though I've never had Avanti's - sounds like that could be one of those really hard to walk away from kinds of yumminess.
