Scales Schmales!

So Eric and I are staying at my grandmother's house through Sunday while she and my uncle are on vacation. I weighed on her scale this morning, and I want to go home and get my scale! Hers says I weigh 2.2 pounds MORE than what mine says. I know every scale varies though so I am just going on what her scale says and I will work through Sunday just like I would if I were using my scale. We swam last night for about an hour and I burned 771 calories! I was so excited! I'm trying to figure out what kind of exercise I want to do today.

This is a new concept to me, wanting to exercise. I still don't feel like there is much of a difference but apparently there is. I can fit into smaller clothes, I need to lose a little more to be totally comfortable in them but they fit, and other people have told me they can see a difference. Maybe in a few more weeks I'll be able to tell. I still have 4 more dress sizes to lose before November which I have been told for every 10 pounds a person loses, that equals a dress size. So I guess I need to lose about 40 more pounds by November. I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS! Haha I have to keep telling myself that. I am trying to make eating right and exercising a habit but I haven't gotten there yet.

There is only 9 days between these two photos. The one on the left is the most current.

I am OK with taking longer than planned because then I am more likely to keep the weight off instead of just yo-yo dieting again. I am thoroughly enjoying finding new recipes to make and looking up things that I didn't know burn calories. Who knew playing darts, and shopping at Walmart would burn calories!?! Well again, today isn't a very exciting post because nothing really happened.

OH! Just a little selling point, if any of you need/want any photography done or a facial please let me know! I am trying to build both of my businesses. :) My websites are Life's a Flash and Mary Kay. If you tell me you saw this on my blog, I will give you a discount on whatever service you want. OK well I will write more tomorrow and then Saturday I will have plenty to write about because I have my newborn photo shoot tomorrow! :) Thanks for reading!

Lots of Love

  1. Definitely a difference in those 2 photos! And you are making really wise choices about setting reasonable goals, in my humble opinion. auntie r
