Fit Friday

This week more than makes up for last week's total bomb in the scale department. I'm down 3 1/2 pounds! Finally some movement! But what's even better than that is that I can (finally) tell that my clothes are starting to fit differently.

I grabbed a pair of jeans and pulled them up as far as they would go and Jeff looked at me like I was a little crazy when I excitedly exclaimed, "Look, babe! I can almost button these!" But seriously, it was an improvement from not getting them over my hips a couple of weeks ago.

Progress (no matter how small)? I'll take it!

Oh, I should also mention (because I think it has aided majorly in the scale movement) that I completely cut out refined sugar and artificial sweeteners about a week and a half ago. This is no small feat, but I remember it helping last year (before the pregnancy) with not only losing weight, but feeling normal again and feeling like I had some sort of control over my emotions which, let's face it, everyone appreciates. After being off the stuff for about four days the cravings were pretty much gone and I felt energized and refreshed and normal.

So, yeah, there you have it!


Total lost: 25.5
Still to lose (to ultimate goal): 29.5


  1. That's so great, Karey!!

    I have gotten off soda probably 5 times in the last year, even diet, and drank only water and it did feel so good!! Then, like a druggie, I would say "Oh, one soda won't hurt" and before I knew it, it was a staple in the fridge again. URG! So annoying, that sugar!! ( :

  2. Good job, lady!! I'm working on cutting out those refined sugars as well. Good for you for sticking with it... I bet the weight loss is just oging to continue now. Yay for 3.5 pounds!! :)

  3. Thanks, guys! I was so happy to (FINALLY!) see a significant loss and I can (once again) see that the working out and cutting sugar is helping. I'm hoping it continues to drop - I'm ready to win this battle (and FEEL awesome)!

  4. Nice work Girl!! Progress is progress!

    I've been thinking I need a sugar detox because whoa have I been very uhhh...liberal with my sweet eating, and because I need to fit into at least SOME of my pants before I head back to work. ;)

    1. I'd give yourself a little grace, Katherine, your baby is quite a bit younger than mine... and besides, that's what they made skirts with elastic waste-bands for, right? ;)
