Shrink Yo' Self in 2012 - Week 3

It's Wednesday again and we all know what that means. Time to hop on the scale and see if our hard work the previous week paid off or if the pounds want to hang on for a little bit longer. At the start of this challenge, I also started the 17 Day Diet ( if you don't know what it is you should check it out) its a diet that teaches you and your body the proper way to eat through out 4 phases, each phase last 17 days.

Today marked the end of the first phase for me and the beginning of Phase 2, which means the list of food that I can eat has expanded somewhat, but still in moderation.

Up until today I wasn't allowed any sugar or carbs, except for the sugar/carbs in the two servings of fruit I was allowed per day.  I have to say this was the longest, most difficult 17 days I have ever had! lol  But I must confess, I did cheat over the weekend. I just couldn't resist the Auntie Anns  pretzels at the mall.. and a coke.  It was THE BEST thing ever!!  Although I know I shouldn't have splurged, I did , I enjoyed, I am owning it and I got back on track right after I ate it and moving on! Eating something I shouldn't have may have hindered my weight loss this week... but I am happy with what the scale has shown me today.

I am hoping it will be the same next week after being allowed to bring back some of the carbs into my diet, I'm a little nervous to change up what I'm eating. Its hard to believe I said that after wanting to stab people the last 17 days for something, anything that contained sugar or carbs! lol

Its working so I'm going to keep working it!

Beginning weight: 214.5
Previoius weight: 206.5
Current weight: 203
+/- this week: -3.5
total weight loss: 11.5


  1. great loss!! (i've never been able to resist a mall pretzel either :P)

  2. Awesome job! I had some indulgences this week too, but we are human and sometimes we just want to indulge. As long as it's not an all the time thing then it's ok! You are having great success and are really kickin' butt with the weightloss!
