HFH Update

Don't they say "slow and steady wins the race"? Well, I am sure somebody has said something like that. Christie at Baby Tea Leaves wants to know what our inspiration was this week. What keeps you working out? This week, I made more room in my closet and put my "skinny" clothes into a tub. My inspiration is to put that tub back into my closet. I mean, I would have a whole new wardrobe!!! That was one inspiration and the other is to have an updated family photo that I will be happy displaying in my home. It would be nice to have that photo for the holidays.
Now, I didn't change the way I ate, but I was only able to workout 3 times this week. On Sunday I cleaned and organized our basement which I knew would make Baby Tea Leaves and Organized Junkie proud at the same time!!! Man was I sore the next day!!! But even after all of that I only managed to drop 1 lb!! I know, it is better than gaining, but I still wanted more!!!
You know when you are trying to lose weight and you finally go from the 130's to the 120's? Well, I have finally entered the next set of numbers.....and no, it's not the 120's!!!!! Anyway, that will inspire me to lose this week, because I don't want to go back!!!!!

Great job!
You did better this week than I did. I am only five or six pounds away from a big number change, and I just can't get there! Hopefully by the end of the month...

Keep it up!

one pound is great! sometimes we are not going to drop 5 pounds a week. though for me, that would be a miracle! LOL i have thyroid disease so i'm lucky to lose 1 lb a week when the avg is 1/2 lb a wk. keep up the great work!

1lb is great & yes slow & steady does win the race. It will all come off eventually if you keep trying. Congrats on getting down to your next decade of numbers.

it's true, slow and steady is the way to go!! i call it "one lonely pound at a time" but they do add up, oh yes they do! just think, it only takes a few of those "lonely" pounds to get us into a new decade of numbers!! so congrats on the loss!!!

I love that mantra and use it all the time! I even blogged about it here:

A pound lost is better than a pound gained! Glad to hear that you are in a new set of lower numbers!

Great Gift Idea
