Today’s doings on the challenge
Only 5 more days till weigh-in!!!
I’m WE’RE kicking butt !!!! Cannot wait!!!
Something else that Karen has done for me is, she’s gotten me to focus on the GOOD in me. I told her how I seriously don’t like much about myself (physically, cept for the legs ya know ) and one thing we are doing for each other when we give our rundown for the day is to tell each other one thing that we really like about ourselves (on the inside)…it’s really a great change for me. I’m such a positive person when it comes to anything else, just not myself and she’s really gotten that going for me and I love it
And to Miss Elizabeth ( Weight Loss Mommy )…SHE PUT HER SCALE AWAY!!!! (((HUGS))) to you my dear…you’re a wonderful person and you have done so well on your journey!!!!
I should start an official ’scale boycott’. They don’t deserve our attention ladies (and gents) !!! They are for accountability, once a week MAX, only.

30 minutes on Lippy (393.5 calories burned, 1.5 miles total)
I have to say THANK YOU to whoever it was (sorry, I so don’t remember) who mentioned that my tension was set too high on Lippy. I was able to do 30 minutes non-stop today. That is a personal record for me. The longest non-stop stretch I ever did on her was 27 minutes (tied yesterday). It’s even a calorie burning record. I always try and shoot for 300 calories each time I get on her, and today was *this close* to 400 calories!! It felt AMAZING. There is NO WAY possible that I will not have a great loss this coming Monday
I am a little nervous about Friday night. Our neighbors want us to go to a local winery for pizza and wine. I told Clint, the only way I will go is if I drink water all night (no alcohol what-so-ever), and usually when our neighbors go, they order this awesome seafood pizza…it’s a white pizza with only seafood and cheese for toppings, so one piece can’t be THAT bad…so that is my plan already; water all night and ONE, I repeat ONE piece of the seafood pizza. I will spare myself some points for that evening so no matter what the points price, I will not be caught short
LOVE this feeling of control I am having with myself. I DESPISE the out of control feelings and eating and everything that comes along with not staying on plan, and not exercising. I’m on such a natural high right now, how could I have EVER let this go???
I’m so right there with you. I’m so addicted to the scale. It has been years since I hid it from myself. I was OMG 50 lbs lighter then too! I was only trying to lose 10-15 lbs back then. Oh had I been successful at losing and keeping it off…..
I’m considering hiding the scale. Or at least putting it away to where it is harder to get to. It is a little scary to even think of it though!
Yay!! Thanks for the shoutout And, for the graphics tip. I think I’m going to do that! Loved it!
I’m so proud of you for doing so well! You are such an inspiration (I can’t tell you that enough). And, um, they make lowfat sausage links?? OMG I MISS SAUSAGE. Breakfast, cheddarwurst kind, hotdog… Anything sausage like. It’s been SOOOOOOO long. I’m German. I need me my sausage hahaha.
I just love reading your stuff and when you posted the scale advice, I listened and put mines up in the cabinet. Out of sight, out of mind as I say .
Anyways you are doing such a wonderful job! Keep it up and you’ll be there in no time.
Lisa, I love your voice these days. Keep up the great work! Your Inner Happy must be so glad to come on out and knock that Nasty Neg around! Great for you.
I too saw a pic of Star Jones. She does look great. (I vaguely remember hearing somewhere that she had that gastro-whatsit surgery, but what do I know…seriously.)
Have a great time on Friday. Don’t be too hard on yourself, just enjoy the break in routine. Seafood pizza & wine!?!…now you’re talkin’ ’bout my favorite things!!! You’ll have to take us when we’re in next.
Huge hugs to you Wonderful Woman!!!!
I am so proud of all of you:) You are right the scale can sabotage you. I know from my own expierience:)
I am out here cheering for you:) Go Lisa Go You can do it:)
