It’s weigh in day! Also known as It’s time for me to get my chunky butt in gear and start focusing on myself and losing weight again. The last month has not been a good one on the scale and I can really tell my clothes are getting tighter and I’m more sluggish then I have been in a while.
When I stepped on the scale last week, I was higher then I was at the start of this year. Wow that was a slap in the face….even though I was running more then I ever have, I weighed more and was visibly fluffier. I vowed to stop it right then and there and not let me continue slipping back to being the heaviest I have ever been.

This week I am down 2.5 lbs. High Five!

Granted I’m still almost 25 lbs lower then my heaviest, which I am proud of. BUT…I’m up almost 25 lbs from where I was at this time last year. WTF? I didn’t really think it was that bad, looking at it go up a lb then down half then up another two lbs and down one. But I looked back into my old WI posts and it was staring me right in the face. How did that happen? How did I let myself slide that far back to my old ways? ( oh yeah I stopped counting calories, ate whatever I wanted and would start tomorrow, didn’t make myself exercise consistently, etc.)   But I did and now I’m stopping it. I CAN DO THIS!

Today is the official start of the latest challenge over The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans…bring on SHRINKVIVOR!  I am a proud member of The Burgundy Babes Tribe…and we are all excited to start shrinking! So bring on SHRINKVIVOR…lets do this together shall we?
