18.3 Lost

Last night was my second weigh in.
I was so excited for this one. I had completed two solid weeks nearly error free and had pushed my body so hard. I got through Halloween candy free and rewarded myself with healthy options. I met with my trainer, walked and walk and walked, took all of my supplements religiously - I played my cards right.
I got on the scale.
And only lost only 5.1 pounds.
Disappointment crept over my body and I teared up. I obviously knew I would not be loosing the 13.2 I lost two weeks earlier but I had worked so hard that I was assuming I would have a solid 10 pound loss.
So here I am, day 25 and my mind is still in the right place. I have to many reasons to keep going that are motivating me and encouraging me to stay on track. Loosing 18.3 pounds in 28 days is an accomplishment in itself and I need to remember that.
Here is to a new day, a fresh start, two weeks until my next weigh in. I CAN and I WILL do this. I appreciate all of the love, support, motivation and questions that my readers have had. You all can do it too. Weight loss is hard but it is achievable.


  1. You've got this girl! Small victories are still victories! ;) I just joined a bootcamp last night, so I'm right there with ya on the weight loss train!


  2. I still think that is wonderful!! thanks for joining the link up! hope to see you next week!

  3. That's freaking fantastic!!! I couldn't lose that much weight in 28 days if I tried! You go sister, keep it up!

  4. That's amazing! What supplements are you taking?? I need to know, haha. :)

  5. You are so cute and amazing!
    And I adore the name of your blog ;) One of my fav country songs!

    I just found your blog through the Empowered Living blog hop - excited to read more and now following you via GFC!



  6. You most certainly CAN do this girl!! 5 lbs is still so much to be proud of!! 18 lbs in 28 days is insaaaane!! What are your secrets??

  7. You are doing great. 18+ lbs in 25 days is amazing. Sometimes the body plateaus where it feels your weight isn't dropping as fast as it was previously. This is normal and as long as you keep plugging away like you sound you are you will achieve your goal. Looking forward to hearing your journey. Thank you for linking up to the Empowered Living blog hop. You are what the hop is all about. People inspiring themselves and those around them. GOOOOOO you!

  8. Hi there Kathleen, keep it up. I'm still trying a few more pounds of the weight I gained during pregnancy. I found you at THE EMPOWERED LIVING BLOG HOP. Just followed your blog and would love to have you follow my blog back. When you do, please leave a comment so I'd know you stopped by.


  9. I have never lost that much weight in two weeks. You rocked it! I know you were hoping for a bigger number but you still did way better than gaining. Esther Norine Designs

  10. Way to go girl! 18.3lbs is a lot to lose in such a short time--keep your head up friend!

  11. You are doing great! It is perfectly normal to fluctuate so much. Just keep plugging away!

  12. Oh, and also, I nominated you for an award over at my blog! ;)

  13. Congratulations! It is "discouraging" to not see the numbers drop as expected sometimes, but you have your mind right and just know that all good things take time! I am happy to see that you are so motivated - definitely an inspiration to many! I am a new follower :)

  14. DOn't be discouraged, it's only normal that the weight loss slows down unless you "shock" your body. Just keep at it and don't give up!
