Crunch In - Wednesday

It's been exactly one week and so I woke up this morning and weighed myself. I've only been weighing first thing in the morning, because I've heard that's when you are at your lightest. Why would I inflict self-punishment and weigh in at my heaviest?

Anyway.

All I can say is that it is because of God's mercy that I am exactly 2 pounds lighter today than I was a week ago.

Original weight 171.2
Today's weight 169.2

I feel like I've been missing in action since Friday and I have. I've not done well, so I figured I would spare you all the discouragement of a whining post. Although I haven't stuck to my ideal calorie intake each day, I have eaten much less than normally.

I've discovered that eating tiny meals keeps me from getting heartburn, so it's an added bonus. I've also enjoyed exercising with my kids. They are making me do their floor exercises from gym class and they are joining me as well. My kids have a little contest going to see who can do the most sit-ups. They can both do more than me. ;-)

I have been keeping track of my exercise on the great excel spreadsheet someone sent out. Although I don't remember who sent it, THANK YOU!

I'm back in the groove and geared up for a better week than the last. Praying you all reach your goals!
