Scale Victory Monday!


Today was my weigh in and I lost 3 pounds! The number above may not mean too much to all of you, but this is my new record low! My lowest weight in 10 years. That is 22 pounds lighter since I began this journey on June 26. Most of you know that I have really stalled in scale victories, hovering at 19 pounds lost for the best part of 6 weeks. I am here to tell you that patience and my determination finally paid off. It feels great!!

To keep the fires burning, I logged another 8 miles on my bike this morning. New habits, new habits! Make it a strong day everyone! Michele

PS: The Vikings won (!!!) in case you didn't hear!!!

  6. Yay, Michele!! Congratulations on a fantastic scale loss this week!

    But, hey, the next time you hit a new personal low, eliminate this phrase:

    "...The number above may not mean too much to all of you ..."

    It means everything, because it is important to YOUR journey! And we're here to support you and cheer you on!

    Onward and downward! You are ROCKING this!! Holding on through a six-week plateau is NOT an easy thing to do, and I'm very proud of you, Michele. Awesome job, just awesome!!

  9. You're my hero! Great loss and wonderful inspiration for those of us who are stalled out right now. Indoor biking? or are you braving the cold temps outside?

  10. That is sooooo fabulous, Michele. You've really been dedicated to your program, so even if there was no loss, you could be proud. But isn't it great when the dedication and the scale are speaking the same language! Awesome, Ms. Lady.
