Week 8 Here are our stats...I have lost one pound all month...should I quit????

I  Have Lost One Pound All Month. Should I Quit?

When I stepped on the scale this week I was a little upset.  I was 233 AGAIN!!!! This is not funny!  It has been a whole month and all I have lost is one little pound! My first reaction was...I quit! I had to stop and remind myself that "Quitting is not an option!".  As I did my body mass at the gym I was a little more encouraged.  I have lost weight. I lost four pounds this last week.  I lost four pounds of fat but I gained back 4 pounds of muscle.  How does that pan out?  It makes my scale say I lost nothing BUT my body is changing.  I am loosing inches, and my clothes are fitting me better then they ever have before. I went from 57% body fat to 51% body fat.  That is a big difference in a short period of time. It is a long way from 20% I want to be at. But it is going down. I am losing even when the scale says I am not! I need to not get discouraged and keep working hard!

The last time we went swimming at moms house I had forgotten my suit. She happened to have a size 18 and a size 16.  I wore the `18 (squeezed myself into is more like it!) and brought home the 16 for my daughter thinking some day one of them will grow into it.  While packing for my trip to Florida, I came across the swim suit.  I just felt an urge to try it on.  I did not think I would even be able to get it up my big but...but I did. as I pulled it on I realized...it was a perfect fit.  I walked into my girls room and they both said "WOW mom you look beautiful!"  Dave liked it too!  I will go to Florida in a size 16 swim suit and feel like a beautiful beach babe!  I know I am far from that but I love that I can fit into it. It means a lot that it was my moms. It was a new one she had just bought!  I am taking a part of her on this trip with me!!!

Weigh In Two Months
*I am trying not to get discouraged or to concentrate on the numbers.  If I could just loose one or two pounds a week I would be happy!
*We started taking enzyme pills (the health food store recommended them) and we are hungry all the time. Not sure why this is happening.

* Dave is down to a size 42!!! (He was 46)
*My clothes are getting loose on me
*My kids love the food
*I have lost fat and gained muscle

Changes we are going to make:
*We are trying to do more cardio, less weight training. I was loosing weight when I was doing cardio.
*We are planning our menu for our trip to Florida and bringing all of our food, so we can eat right.
*We are going to be leaving for vacation soon...keep us in your prayers! We will be gone for 11 days! Pray that we can stick to our diet while we are gone.
*There are pools at the hotel, so I will be able to swim again!!!

  2. I love you BOTH soo much! Pick up that cardio Kathleen! The "Q" word is not aloud...Cande learned the hard way! lol Great Job! I'm soooo happy!

  3. If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

    The best food for good health to maintain the system of your body I really engaged for.
