~ Weigh in Wednesday ~

Well hello there friends! 

Wow. Have I been a bad blogger lately or what? Yikes. Punish me! 

My apologies for my absence. My life has been unbelievably boring lately and I have not really had much to share. 

The one big thing that's happened over the last 2 weeks was the Gathered Treasures Show where I met up a ton of blog friends. It is not often that happens! They have all already shared, I'm sooooo late. 

I got there super late so we didn't have a lot of time but I got to say hello to Angie, Linda, CindyEarlene, Ann, Stacey and Cheryl. Pretty big deal eh? :) You can findlots of pictures on their blogs! Visit them. They are all wonderful ladies whom I adore! 

But I have bigger news!!! 

My weigh in yesterday was 130! 

Hello? Did you hear me?

That's an official 20 pounds lost since January 9th. 

20 pounds gone! 

I am super proud! 

I am still doing weight watchers and still Zumbaing 3 days a week at the YMCA. It's going great! My weight loss has slowed way way down on a per week poundage. I was losing about 2 pounds per week but now that I'm closing in on that last 15 pounds... it's slowing down to a little less than a pound a week. I knew that would happen. But I'm cool with it. Just going to keep at it until I hit my goal weight of 115. :) 

I will be back tomorrow with Thrifty Thursday... but not the type you are used to. ;) You will have to come back tomorrow to see! 

Until next time... 

Carmen and the Primcats

Hi Carmen...I'm so proud of you kiddo. That is really a wonderful accomplishment in that short of time. There's no doubt you will reach the 115 mark. Bless you for being so faithful with this eating plan.

So glad you got to see some of the blog buddies...I did see a few of the blogs with pictures. You are looking good kiddo.

Great job Carmen! And your commitment to fitness will help you stay on track and keep it off. Since I injured my knee and haven't been able to do my usual walking and aerobic exercising at the gym I've switched to a mostly plant based diet and managed to lose a few pounds. It's easy for me to fall into the trap of eating too many carbs in the evening and having a big salad for dinner really curbed my appetite for those. ~Roberta

cynthia lee designs said...

Well...there you are! I was about to go looking for you.
Congrats on the weight loss!! I'm doing the happy dance for you.
I've lost a few more pounds, but am not on WW anymore. Recently started a plan that my doctor recommended and it is working better for me.
Can't wait to see what your post is about tomorrow.

Hey young lady, you gotta live life! Congratulations on your weight loss, that's great!

Congrats on reaching 20. Keep your eye on the goal and you'll get there. It is hard to keep up the rapid weight loss once you get past the halfway mark. Zumba is a lot of fun and great exercise. I take it on Wednesday nights and I can say by the end of the class I'm wiped out. Looking forward to see what you are up to tomorrow.
