McFatty Monday - Progress

"I am one stomach flu away from my goal weight." If you have seen The Devil Wears Prada you know what I am talking about. Now, I am about 5 stomach flus away from my goal weight but that isn't the point. After last week's motivation post I caught the stomach flu from who knows where. It was a bad, bad day in our home but thankfully Dustin has a flexible job and was able to come home for part of the morning, while his mom helped with Brooke in the afternoon.

BUT it did help jump start my weight loss. I lost 5 pounds that day, which I partially gained back because of the dehydration, but I am now down 5 pounds total! 15 more pounds to go until I am at my comfortable weight, 20 pounds to my goal weight. I find that getting started with weight loss is the hardest part. Who wants to eat right and exercise?! Okay, maybe some of you... but not me. Once I saw that movement in numbers on the scale, I suddenly felt motivated. I can lose weight. I can do this. I have had a good week of walking and eating well, now I just need to make it through week two.
