Photos after 5 weeks...

It has been 5 weeks and I am still in awe of this process!  For all the women following along, you know how difficult one week a month is for us in general, not to mention the water weight we put on.  I usually put on about 5 pounds during this time and I was curious to see what would happen since I'm paying close attention to my weight.  And... I was up an average of 2.5 pounds for the week... until yesterday...

I weighed in this morning and, AMAZINGLY, was down 3.5 pounds (2.5 that I had put on this week, and an extra pound off my overall!)  WOOO HOOOO!  In the past 5 weeks, I have lost 11.6 pounds... and the physical changes continue to surprise me! 

225.4 pounds

237 pounds

"Oh... my... gosh, Becky... look at her butt!"  Sorry, Sir Mix-A-Lot, but you are not going to like THIS butt... this one is MINE and I'm getting my sexy back!

SERIOUSLY... I can't tell you how INSPIRING it is TO ME to see these weekly photos!  The decreasing numbers on the scale are one thing, but these photos are the key at the moment.  If you are following along and working on your weight loss, you HAVE to try this!!!  

NEW WEEKLY SEGMENTS!!!  I have had such a GREAT response to the weekly Music Day and Foodie Friday posts, that I am adding a few more weekly goodies.  Thanks for the comments and suggestions and the first of the new weekly segments this week!  See you tomorrow for Music Day!!

So proud of you! Just....girl...keep going! We need to make sure we get together when we reach half-way!

I weighed today, too. And am down 2 lbs. I am down 11 lbs in 7 weeks, so a bit off my 2 lb per week goal - that's an average of 1.6 lbs per week or so. I have 1 more pound to go to reach "One-derland"! I'm at 200 this week! I have 3 lbs to reach my 1st mini goal of losing 14 lbs! I plan to work hard this week to see if I can meet that by the 28th!!!
