Well, my food intake yesterday was not the best. That's all I have to say about that. I don't want to focus on the negative right now.

This morning for breakfast I had Kroger brand Raisin Cinnimon Toast with some spray butter. It is 100 calories for two slices. Very good.

So....I have decided to take a challenge. For the whole month of March....I will not get on the scale. At all!! Sounds crazy huh? Well, I started to notice how crazy I was getting about that number. I was getting upset and frustrated and I wasn't focusing on the right things. Inches! I can now zip up my pants with no problem. I need to go buy a new belt because I am out of loops. I am wearing a size medium t-shirt. Those are the things I need ot focus on right now. So...I'm putting the scale away. Out of sight, out of mind. Hopefully at the end of March I will have lost.

My new goal for March will not be 10 pounds, it will be with inches.

Here are my measurements as of today:
Upper Thigh: 22.5
Lower Waist: 41.5
Natural Waist: 38
Chest: 42.5

That means, since February 3 I have lost a total of 12.5 inches!

So, my goal is to lose 6 more inches by March 15 to get my necklace for Rodeo. I also want to lose another 6 inches for a total of 12 by March 29 (mt birthday). So, no weight...not even to cheat and look. I will measure on March 10 to see how my goal is going. So, keep a look out!

Wish me luck!!

Confession: I had my leftovers for lunch (good) and then I ate three chicken tamales (bad).

Cheer: I jogged to my polling site last night and I didn't stop! I wanted to, but I didn't!!


  1. I am proud of you for not stepping on the scale for a whole month! I know that I would not be able to do that!!!! I am a scale junkie...Good luck with the measurements! When you get there, and I am sure you will before the rodeo, you have to post pics of your necklace!!!! Thanks for being my accountability and inspiration!

  2. i am rocking out couch to 5k! it is kick a$$. i also have a good chicken veggie soup recipe that i will be posting soon! just wanted to comment to say 'hello' really!

  3. Did you jog AND vote? That's awesome.

    Girl, I don't blame you a bit for putting the scale away, especially if it was making you crazy.

  4. Yum! I love cinnamon raisin bread! You are fabulous girly!


  5. I just came across your blog. I haven't been on a scale and looked at the weight for 8 days!! I did weigh and have my husband look, but not me. It is so hard, but I was being driven nuts by that pesky piece of metal.


Show me some love!! Or kick my butt!!
