Shrink For Good Week 2

Just a quick update on the Shrink for Good challenge over at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jean's site. This past week was not a good one for me. I've been struggling big time since Friday evening. Consequently, my weigh-in this morning showed a gain of 4.2 pounds. That's right - over 4 pounds! Pretty disgusting, I know.

Anyway, I'm not going to take any food out of my basket because of the gain. After all, the food is going for a good cause. I will hopefully get back on track soon.


  1. Too bad about the gain. Just keep monitoring what you eat and try to cut down on the carbs. You will be surprised at how much weight you can lose just by cutting 1/3 of your carbs out.
    Rule of thumb...don't eat anything white.
    White bread, white rice, white potatoes, white get the idea.

  2. Weekends are always a struggle for me -- holiday weekends are worse. Here's hoping to a better week this week.

  3. good for you for leaving your food in the basket. sorry about the loss, hopefully you'll be able to identify what caused the gain this week and knock it in the head next week!!

  4. You can do it! Look at what you have accomplished so far! You have come a long way baby!!! lol
    Dont let it discourage you! Just get back on track. I had the same thing happen to me last week and I kicked it in the butt this week! Stay positive!!!


I'm a lifetime yo-yo dieter who has spent most of my time on the up swing. On a few rare occasions I have been down in the weight game and it is then that I feel FANTASTIC. Just a few months ago I was in middle of one of those rare periods when all was going well and the pounds were coming
off. Then something went awry, and I started gaining it all back again. So here
I am starting over. Follow me on my journey to health and fitness.
