No, this is NOT trick photography! :0) Weigh In Wed. #2

I have worked SO hard this past week. Since last Wed., I've exercised all but 2 days (last Friday and Sunday), I've been drinking water like it's going out of style and I've been careful about what I've eaten, trying to balance my protein vs. carbs as well as feeding my face every 3 hours.

And it has paid off.

For sure.

I was stunned after I got home from the gym this morning to do my 2nd official weigh in for the year. I was hoping to have lost a pound or two but was so excited to have lost 3.6 pounds. IN ONE WEEK! Wow. I might be reaching my goal of 164 sooner than later if I can keep it up like I have been.

Just for a little visual for you all, I found this photo of a pound of fat vs. a pound of muscle. Yup. I'll take muscle any day.

One more photo for you. I took this one this morning out my window of the beautiful foggy sunrise.

Have a great day everyone!

Well done on the weight loss - love the photo of the sunrise, and as for the one of the muscle/fat - ick!

You go girl!!! Milo was really grossed out by your fat/muscle display. Way to show us all how it's done.

Ali said...

YEAH for you. Well done. I hate it that I need to lose 14lbs. It's the bane of my life. You are doing so well. Wish I had your willpower.

Michelle said...

Congrats on the weight loss! I'm impressed with your dedication. Can you pass some of that my way?

Yay Kristy! see that eating every 3 hours works!! Although I must say, I was surprised to learn that I weigh less than you do. (heeeheee) Not by much though, only by like 5 pounds, lol. I want to get to 160, and that last 2.5 pounds is kicking my butt!!
Love ya girl-- oh and your neice does look just like you! And did you see my post on CX about the eye glasses? I thought you might be interested. :D
