A new low

It feels so good to be feeling better. It's been a year and a half since I've been sick and I forgot how much it sucked!

The good part? I weighed in a day early and lost 6 pounds this week!! 230 today. 16 pounds in a month (and a day). I can't wait to see the 220's again.

Leave it to me to do this AFTER the challenge ended! I'm still so proud of my friend Crys for winning. She lost 15 pounds in a month while traveling. She's a freaking rock star.

I'm trying not to get too excited about the loss this week because I haven't been exercising and I know I've lost some muscle I've worked so hard to build up. I was going to wait until tomorrow to go back to the gym but I'm considering a lunch time swim today because I miss exercising. To me that attitude is even more important than the pounds lost.

Hope everyone is having a great week!! Long weekend ahead!!!


  1. Eeeeeee!!! What an awesome loss, Tina!!! And no, it's NOT six pounds of muscle - it doesn't go away that fast, lol! Congratulations!! So excited for you - and woohoo, the next decade is knocking on your door!

  2. Way to go!! It does suck being sick, but I'm glad to hear you're doing better. Keep up the awesome work, kiddo.

  3. Wow Tina! That is fantastic! You'll be seeing the 220s possibly in a matter of hours! Shelley's right, you have not lost muscle, other than maybe a half pound or something.

    I would absolutely love to get together with you and Tammy when I'm in Atlanta. I'm thinking it's going to be the 3rd week in October. Will keep you posted. Keep up the good work.

  4. Great loss, but you're smart to stick the asterisk by it. For me, exercising (nearly) every day is an essential part of the plan. On those rare occasions when I miss back-to-back days, I start feeling crappy and lethargic. Folks think they don't have the energy to exercise; what they don't realize is how much more energetic it makes you.

    Keep up the great work, sister!

  5. Not get too excited my ass!!!! That's awesome girl!!! Hooray for sickness, lmao....totally kidding. Glad you're feeling better though...and even MORE glad that you're missing the exercise. A lunchtime swim sounds just perfect. :)

  6. So glad that you are feeling better, Tina! Hopefully you made that lunchtime swim so that you are on the way through the next decade ;)

  7. Nice job Tina!!! So happy for you.
