Official Thursday Weigh In


How Melissa Got Her Groove Back

I released another half a pound this week, taking me down to 168.5!

It may only be only half a pound, but it's in the right direction - for the third week in a row!

what? you say "only" a half pound. I say yeah! a half pound!

look at two sticks of butter and now picture that off your body! Yeehaw!

Melissa said...

Thanks - last year, I went to cover a health fair and somebody had those plastic representations of 5 lbs. of fat. It was scary to think about! At that point, I'd lost about 40 lbs., so it would take a lot more of those buggers to show what I'd lost now!

just remember: none of us put it on overnight, so you can't expect to lose it overnight, either!!

you're doing great, sweetie!

Melissa said...

What, you mean I didn't just wake up one morning and suddenly become 100 lbs. overweight?

1/2 lb is 1/2 lb closer to your goal! Yay for you!

Melissa said...

Lissete - I keep telling myself that it's just like when I'm driving somewhere. If I stop, I'll never get to where I'm going. And if I don't lose anything, even if it's just a half a pound, I'll never get to my goal.
