Weighing in--Week 3

Update on Deployment Goal #2
Since my weight loss was great the first week and poor the second week, I had no idea what to expect this week. I was a little worried to be honest with you because two of my weekend days were spent out touring Germany; thus, I wasn't home to cook for myself. The weather was perfect, and the fall colors were amazing (I'll write more about it later). However, I still tried very hard to make healthy choices and exercise every day. This morning I hopped on the scale and found I was down 1.6 pounds! This is not a huge number, but definitely better than last week's 0.4 pound. I'm a little disappointed at how slow I am losing the weight this time around. Normally, I can lose 10 pounds in the first month (especially since I have so much to lose). This time I am three weeks into the diet, and only down 5.4 pounds. I'm really hoping that my body gets on track because I'd like to look a lot different when I see Jared for R&R in a few months. I must remember "SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!"

Week 1 - lost 3.2 pounds
Week 2 - lost 0.6 pounds
Week 3 - lost 1.6 pounds

TOTAL LOST - 5.4 pounds

Only 79.6 more pounds to go!



  1. You can do it Tammy. Stay positive. Your doing awesome.

  2. THIS IS NOT SLOW!!! Girl! You're nutso for thinking that! Give it one more week--see how much you lose then, and then calculate it all together. As it is, you've almost figured 2 pounds per week--which is AWESOME (and again, a reminder--that is what ww promises you will lose!!!) You don't want to lose too fast--
    1.6 ROCKS! LOVE that number. EMBRACE that number. And feel good about you and the good choice you're making. Remember, this isn't a DIET--this is about a lifestlye of making good food choices. The weight didn't come on overnight--so you can't expect it to leave that way!! And just take a look back at my weightloss log--many small numbers start to add up. YOU CAN DO THIS!!

  3. Tammy - you are amazing! keep up the hard work and you'll get the payoff! I love to see all the awesome places you get to visit. It is beautiful there. Very cool that Jared did a 1/2 marathon. I hate to run so anyone who does that is amazing. Love the package of gifts you sent to him for his birthday. He's luck to have you for his wife. I liked the list of goals you made. It's always good to have something to work toward. I miss you and I hope you are okay. You are worth everything good in life so keep smiling! Love ya!

  4. Good job Tammy! You're doing great!
