Holy Buckets!

"Holy Buckets" That was what our meeting leader said when I stepped on the scale.  It just cracks me up.  She really is fantastic and has a certain way of handling the meetings that I really enjoy.  So Why the "Holy Buckets" comment?  I lost 8.6 pounds this last week.  We are right back on track and headed to a place that I have not been in years.  I am 14.8 pounds away from being under 300.  I have now shed a grand total of 85.4 pounds and I am feeling pretty darn good.  I am not sure what 299 will feel like but I am pretty excited to find out.  So gone is the 5.4 pound gain over the last 2 weeks and here is a 3.2 loss over the last 3.  That is perfectly reasonable.  I am sure some of it was water, but I will say I have been watching things pretty closely and getting in all my water and then some.  I did skip the gym this morning as I was up till all hours watching that darn All Star game last night, but I will be mowing tonight so that will burn a few calories.  Then back to the gym tomorrow.  Have an amazing day everyone!

This is why women cringe at WW meetings! Their bodies just do not do this! Having said that and putting envy behind me...lol...Congrats and I want to be in line to cheer you when you announce that 299 weigh in!

Very nice loss!

The difference between 300 and 299 is just a pound, but symbolically, it's a big deal.

Is 8.6 pounds your largest single week loss?

woo hoo!!! Love that...."holy buckets!"

Glad you found your way back. That big loss ought to keep you rockin' for awhile. If it's hot there like it is here in KS, you ought to sweat off a bucket full of calories while you mow ;)
