Jessica's Lifestyle Makeover Week 4

So I've been a bit MIA!  I guess you could call me Get Up & Gone not Get Up & Go.....I had a little trouble staying focused on my recent trip to Las Vegas.  How was I supposed to find my get up & go when I was distracted by this.....


So now you at least know what I had to deal with.  Co workers and cowboy hats.  So now to the real reason for this post......

Weigh In Week 4 by Sarag.G.Grecco

Weight Last Week:  167
Weight This Week: 164
Weight Loss for the Week: 3 (Woo to the Hoo) 

Total Weight Loss Since 
Monday, May 30th: 8 

Jessica lost the most weight this week while I was out of town......hmmmmm....maybe I've got something to learn.

We are 30 days in and here are the differences she notices so far:

1.  Mood - Leaving the gym makes her happier.  At first it was tough because she wasn't regularly working out and was always sore.  Now she has a foundation of fitness to work from.

2.  She doesn't find the dieting part as hard as she thought.  I asked her what she missed the most and she said nothing.  I really haven't heard her crave much since she started.  Impressive!  She still has a few sweets every week (this week a cookie and a Weight Watchers dessert bar).

3.  The gym has officially become part of her daily routine.  Even on her off days Jessica finds herself wanting to do something active.          

Who knows.  Maybe she'll hit the 10 pound mark next week!

  1. You know i found the same thing about dieting and exercise. Dieting aprt - I didnt crave all the sweets and chips that i used to eat, weird but true. and the exercise - i would feel so energized after leaving exercise class that i jsut got hooked on it.

    Good luck on everything. Cheers!
