LHAS Weigh In: Week 2

Sorry it has taken me forever today to get a post on here. I just got home from my parent's house. My mother and I are trying to plan a family vacation for this summer.

But I did go and weigh today for week #2 LHAS Challenge. I had to take my own picture so it is not that great of a shot. Jeremiah ended up having to work so he was not able to be there like normal. I am down this week 5 lbs. Yippee!!! I was really concerned about this week since I have increased my calories but looks like whatever I am doing is definitely working. Last week I was at 225 and now this week 220. I didn't hit 219 like I would have loved but I am in no way complaining.

Again the scale was off by a pound. One of the ladies that works at the store, like I said the scale is out in front of a furniture store, told me that it gets off every now and then and that they will have to have a guy come out to reset the balance. But she was not sure when that will happen because right now she said times have been tough and they can't really afford to get anyone to come out right now. I guess it doesn't really matter all that much. It just bugs me because then the picture I take shows one pound more than I really am. Yes I am that anal.

I struggled getting my exercise time in but I not only met my goal, I ended up surpassing it a little. I worked out for a total of 334 minutes. Last week I worked out for 421 minutes so more the exercise, the more I lose.

Hope everyone has a productive week and keep up the good work!

Pain is temporary. Quitting is forever.


  1. Ahhh bugga!! I thought I won the weight loss challenge this week and then you had to come in and sneak it away!! ha ha!! Great job! Your hard work is paying off! At least it's going to Team 6!!

  2. Ahhh Laurie. I am sorry but you sure had an awesome week! And I wasn't the only one who lost 5 lbs. Aray on Team 1 also had that loss. It looks like he and I might have tied this week.

    I just don't understand some of the numbers. There are so many challengers that had better exercise minutes than me, yet some people did not even have a loss at all. I guess it is my strict diet that is helping me. That and I still have a lot to lose, whereas a lot you are already pretty close to goal already.

    Have a great week!

  3. Don't question it! I assumed I'd lose weight faster than everyone bc I'm a baby (21) and I haven't had any children yet. But now I see it's going to take a LOT of hard work! (and a lot less tequila lol)

    you deserve your awesome losses!!! keep it up girl :)

  4. Woo hoo! A five pound loss is great!

  5. I'm happy for you! Also a teensy bit jealous... I never get those sort of numbers anymore but then again I'm an old lady compared to some of your young ones on the teams.

  6. Wow, 5lbs is fantastic! And the exercise minutes - that's great!
    Thanks for all your support on my blog - it is greatly appreciated.
    GO TEAM 6!!

  7. Woah...5 pounds is AWESOME!! Keep rockin' it. :)

  8. 5 pounds that is awesome! Thank you so much for stopping by and encouraging me.
