Break On Through to the Other Side! Break On Through to the Other Side!

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I was going to weigh in and then go have breakfast, sit down with my coffee and then blog.

Not today!

I'm down two pounds baby! Two!

It's all I can do to not jump and dance around the house singing The Doors because I have broken through to the other side -- the 130's! Woot! Woot! A new decade! The 130s! I reached it briefly back in December but it wasn't to be. I gained and lost the same two pounds for months.

Besides that brief stint (which felt like 5 minutes!) I haven't been here since before my wedding! Nevermind the kids...

OK so I feel like I'm at an awards ceremony and I'm receiving the "Finally -- Your Efforts are not Futile" Award. So I would like to thank my supportive husband, because without his understanding and beauty as a husband, I would not be able to do things like leave during an all-out tantrum to go to spin class (feeling guilty about walking out the door in the middle of the chaos...) And I'd like to thank April for making me count every single damn calorie down to a teaspoon of ketchup I forgot about despite my kicking and screaming over it. Oh I wasn't prepared, I didn't write anything, I'm going to forget someone!!

Ps. There were two wine and cheese parties, a birthday party and a Father's Day celebration. What more can one say? Thank goodness for counting calories or I would have blown it.

Pss. I have a rant about the cheese cube coming.

So I'm a dork and I'm a little excited. If you couldn't tell.

Anyway, finally, it is working. When you're doing a triathlon simply to lose weight (mostly) and you're not losing weight, it can get a little frustrating. But I've lost three pounds so far this challenge. Finally we're getting somewhere! I hope everyone had a great week!! I can't wait to see how everyone did!!
