Friday Weigh-In

We had a "snow storm" and surprise, surprise, the state of Georgia is ill equipped to handle one centimeter of frozen precipitation. I'm so happy that I got home safely from work as the roads were like a skating rink and people around here have absolutely no clue how to handle themselves during inclement weather. I'm really not looking forward to doing it all over again tonight as everything is still frozen over and it's not going to get above 25 degrees. Oy!

I'm still a little weak from the fast and eating very light yesterday, so I'm going to lay low until I'm back up to my normal calories and up the protein. Work and that drive home really took it out of me. But the fast did its job of getting rid of the bloat and I'm back down to 183.5 and my stomach feels really nice, I'm hesitant to say flat when you have the flabby skin that I do, but it feels like it should. And I officially weigh less than my husband! It may be by just half a pound but I am thrilled.

I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to the weekend. It's going to be cold and icy so outdoor exercise is off the table. I think I may have to get out my Leslie Sansone DVD and walk at home this weekend. Wherever you are, I hope you are warm and safe!


  1. Yay, congratulations!

    I'm getting an error message trying to post under my LJ (Open ID error, huh?) so I'm posting anonymously (but this is savage_rose from the forum). I've been feeling really bloated this week, too, and you inspired me to juice fast. I eased into it Wednesday by upping the juice but eating light, and then Thursday alternated juice, hot lemon water, and tea. I feel a lot sharper today, and I'm craving bad stuff a lot less. And the weight loss wasn't too shabby either, even if most of it was just water, it's a mood booster :). Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Your first sentence made me laugh! I'm Texas-I know EXACTLY what you mean. Just the thought of snow cause everyone to lose their mind-and then it's the top story on the news for three days ;)

    Congrats on the weight loss!! That's a great milestone :)

  3. Congratulations on weighing less than your husband! That is always exciting. And I know what you mean about having a flat but flabby stomach…unfortunately. Have a great weekend!

  4. Andra, I'm looking forward to the weekend, too. And CONGRATULATIONS on weighing less than your hubby - woot!! I can't wait... :)
