Biggest Loser Blogger Challenge - Week 2

Happy Monday Ya'll!  It is raining with sleet mixed in and downright cold here.  When the the kids and I bundled up and left the house this morning, it was 26 degrees with a real feel of 21.  Brrr

Mondays also mean Biggest Loser Blogger Challenge weekly check in.  I want to thank each of you for stopping by and offering words of encouragement last week.  I still have not made my way through all the link up but I'm getting there.  I look forward to encouraging you throughout this process of feeling better about ourselves and becoming healthier.  The weight loss is an added bonus.  So how did you ladies do?
I'm kind of meh about last week.  I did not do as well as I could have done but it was not a total wash either.  Here are my stats

Starting weight [01/06/2013]: 175 lbs
Week 2 weight [01/13/2013]: 172.2  (loss of 2.8 lbs for week)
Total weight loss: 2.8 lbs

Goals for this week:
* Drink my water.  I am notorious for bring my water but then not drinking it.  I get so busy that I look up at
   lunch and my glass is still almost full and it is the same at the end of the day.  

* Eat out less.  As a family this is something we need to work on.  I have started back with menu planning
   and hope to get into the groove again.

* Be more aware of what I am eating.  I snacked way more than normal and even though it was just a bite
   here and a bite there.  It adds up.

* Work out.  I did not get in any formal work out this past week. I must buckle down. I know from previous weight loss attempts that working out is KEY for me.


  1. Keep up the great work, Amanda! Congrats on your 2.8 weight loss! :). Have a great week!

  2. You go girl!!!! Lovin the loss!!! I too take a cup and then the day slips by and I have not had a sip of water! Thats my downfall.
