Wednesday Check-In: D&D in 30 Week 4

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I didn't check-in last Wednesday because I was whooping it up at Disney World.  That being said, I hope my Team Phab teammates don't hate me too much after this weigh-in.

Here are my stats for the week:
Weight on June 23, 2009: 165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 141.6
2 weeks ago: 139.8
This week:  143.0
Change:  up 3.2
Total Pounds Gone: 22.8
Change for the D&D Challenge: up 1.4

There you have it.  I don't have any excuses and I am getting back at exercise and tracking my food. I've made good food choices and have worked out every day for the past 4 days.  I was up 6 pounds Sunday morning, so I've lost 2.8 in 4 days, which should count for something.  I am more than a little pissed that hubs announced this morning he is back to his pre-Disney weight, even though he ate Chinese for lunch on Mon and an ENTIRE frozen pizza Mon night and has done NO exercise other than mowing the lawn. Am I a bit bitter. You think?

This weight loss and healthy living thing is hard work unless you are my husband.  We can wish to lose weight, run a little farther or a little faster; but wishing on a star only works in the world of make believe.  We need to work for what we want.  In any case, I leave you with excerpts from the Magic Kingdom's Wishes fireworks show from my 40th birthday.  Enjoy.  (If you listen really close, you can hear Kaylee wish me happy birthday at the end of the video-and yes, I was crying like a baby.)


  1. so i guess this means we're gonna try to be good this weekend??

  2. Given you were at Disney AND celebrating your birthday, it could've been worse. WTG for getting back on track with your eating & exercise!

  3. I am super impressed that you had such a small gain on such a super vacation. I know I gained way more than that on my vacation. You rocked it! Be proud of yourself!

  4. You'll lose what you gained. I'm sure you will. Have a great time at Buckeye Retreat! :)

  5. You had a loss this week, I am proud! Celebrate your accomplishments, no regrets - welcome to the 40 and Fabulous club!

  6. Give yourself a break! You were on vacation in DISNEY and you had the time of your life. Now, you're getting back to life and back on track. I know you will do it!

    You guys have a blast! :)

  7. You'll get back down! You turned 40 and you went to Disney! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!! I'm sorry, but if you turn 40 and go to Disney and don't gain 5 pounds, there's something wrong with you!!! As for your should have just left him there :P


    Wow!!! I cried, too. My kids both sat here and watched it with me!

  8. Don't even worry about it. You were on vacation celebrating a big birthday. You know yourself too well to not think that this will be gone in no time. You will be back to your old weight or less in no time at all. Have a great weekend with the girls. It sounds like so much fun.

  9. Dude. You were in the Mouse's House for your 40th! Don't sweat it, it'll come off...

  10. Happy belated birthday! So glad you had fun and it's already coming off missy!
