How much did she lose this week?

Nada! Zero! Zip!...and I'm happy about it!

I dodged the Easter bullet by exercising to make up for the champagne, the peeps, mom's cookies etc. I let myself enjoy the day and stopped when it was over. In the past I would gain at least 5 pounds every holiday and then it would continue for another week or 2 after. Victory is mine!

Today starts a new week and I really need a loss next Wednesday. It's going to be a challenge since I will be in Savannah overnight on Saturday to celebrate my best friends 40th birthday. Luckily Savannah is known for great seafood and that happens to be my favorite food on the planet. I looked at the menu for the restaurant and I already know I'm having a cold seafood platter with oysters, shrimp and lobster and a salad with pine nuts, raspberries and goat cheese. I'm hoping planning keeps me from ordering the seafood fettuccine. I'd rather save my points for the wine :)

Off to the pool again tonight for a good workout with the better instructor. Even though it's a busy week/weekend I HAVE to keep it up.


  1. Great job maintaining and embracing it this week!

  2. Great job! Sounds like you have a good plan for the weekend as w
    ell. You can do it!

    PS Thanks for your encouragement today. I really appreciate it.

  3. Nice that you stepped up the exercise to combat the treats! That is the work of someone living a healthy lifestyle!

  4. Great job on the maintaining! I was right there with you - I can't describe how happy I was when I stepped on the scale Monday morning and there was no change.

  5. Yeah, a "stay the same" is a relief when you are facing challenges like holidays or vacations.

    Hopefully, you will get a good result next week, especially as you seem so focussed!

  6. Sounds like you are all ready to tackle this weekend, plan in hand. Have fun celebrating!

  7. Good job! That just shows that exercise is key. Keep it up!

  8. I used to do the same as you - pig out on a holiday and carry it over far longer than necessary. So you indulged a little at Easter - but you stopped when it was over and didn't let it sidetrack you for your future success.

    Have a great time this weekend. The seafood sounds great. Wine, too!
