Week 2 Weigh-in

Well, if it isn’t one kid waking you up in the night it’s the other. Bridget woke up to blow her nose and took a detour to my room where she stood over me like a creeper until I woke up. I jumped when I saw her silhouette lingering over my bed.

“Sorry, I just had to blow my nose.”

“Okay”… (crickets) “Well, did you do it?”


“Then go to bed, silly!”

This little exchange took place at 4 a.m. I lied in bed for another thirty minutes but decided to just get up and have a cup of tea. But first I had to make sure that Penelope was still breathing since she didn’t make a peep last night.

I think Bridget actually woke up because she’s excited about showing of her new crazy hair to her friends at school today.

She originally wanted bright red, but Amanda (see Operation Lululemon) convinced her to go with purple. I wanted her to get light blue like Gwen Stefani did back when we all discovered No Doubt. Ah, the memories of jumping on my bed and screaming “I’m Just a Girl” before taking off for a soccer game…

Okay, so maybe I was living vicariously.

Anyway, I’m stalling… I think I decided to get up at 4:30 because I was excited about weighing in. Did I seriously just say that?

You know how I do… I peed, got naked and jumped on the scale, (actually I wobbled because I was still sleepy) and it said 211.6.

Not too shabby!

That’s 3.2 pounds since last week.

I’m on a role. I’m not going to lie I was pretty nervous since I lost so much the first week. Which, for the record, was probably mostly water weight. This 3.2 pounds means more because it’s actually fat that is melting off of my body.

It’s now 5:30 and guess who just woke up…

How did you do? Let me know by posting in the comments section of this post. I can’t wait for those success stories to start trickling in!

Have a good day everyone 🙂

P.S. My new friend Carly has provided us a delicious option for dinner tonight Tangy Lemon Almond Chicken. I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds delish. You should check it out 🙂
