Biggest Loser Fridays and a Bloggy Birthday!!!

Welcome to the 3rd week of BL Fridays!

Well ladies. This week was disappointing. I gained 1.5 lbs. Insert sad face here. Bringing my total weight loss to date to 2.0 lbs.

BUT, it was totally expected. We went out to eat last weekend to Chick-fil-a, Abuelos, and Panini's and I did not make good food choices. Unless you consider pizza, a huge burrito, and a million tortilla chips a good choice. Which honestly at the time, I did. Ha!

I actually expected much worse so in a way I'm kind of excited the damage was only minimal. I don't know about anyone else, but when I screw up an entire week...I can gain a LOT of weight. So 1.5...coolio.

But I really want to work hard this week to take that weight back off. I have an upcoming trip next weekend with some lovely ladies and I'd like to eat my face off one day and not feel so bad about it :)


On another note...I just read Brittany's post yesterday about her Bloggy Birthday and it reminded me that I actually started blogging in February of last year as well. I looked it up and in fact my very fist post was a year ago...TOMORROW!

I can't believe my little blog is turning 1! It was not that long ago that I didn't even know what blogging was...and then when I found out what it was I thought it was stupid :) Why would anyone want to read my thoughts, my dreams, my disappointments? And why would I want to read anyone else's? Well, turns out I was completely and utterly wrong. I LOVE reading all of your blogs and I have "met" some of the very best people I have ever "known" through blogging. I thank you SO much for your friendships and your comments....your e-mails and encouragement. All of you mean SO much to me and I could not be more thankful that I started this blog.

So stick around! This year's going to be great! I can feel it!

I gained .4 pounds and I'm mad because I worked out everyday and counted calories, UGH! But I'm right back with you and getting really serious this week!

Happy Bloggy Birthday!!! I think its really unfair that all the really good foods are a bad choice when trying to eat healthy...

Sonja said...

thats ok! I gained 1.5 aswell. :( I blame it on the weather though and me not being able to get to the gym haha aka laziness.

Don't worry though! as frustrating as it is it'll get easier! :)

Happy bloggy birthday!

I maintained this week--er, at least until yesterday. I had a bad day and went a little overboard and lunch and then got home late and whenever I get home late I tend to just eat and eat and EAT! So frusterating. But, in any event, better than nothin', yes?

Have a fabulous weekend!

yay bloggy birthday!!! and the 1.5 lbs is no big deal - you'll lose it this week. :) i'm like you - i can seriously gain 5 lbs in a week if i eat like a cow, so 1.5 is great considering all of the temptations you had!

Well my scale said I gained 4 pounds in 3 days and I was sick most of the week. If that's not depressing I don't know what is. At least you got to eat all that delicious yummy food! Haha.

Glad you're not letting it get you down...and happy blog-a-versary!

Happy birthday to your blog!

If I were to step on a scale this week, I guarantee you I would have gained weight. I, too, made terrible food decisions- including a ton of chips and queso last night at Moe's, and pimento cheese fries and a pimento cheese burger today...overload.
