-8 Pounds and Counting

My Work In Progress Items:

8. Lose two pant sizes and stay in the single digit clothing size. (0/2)

So, after a wonderful comment from my BIL I remembered it's time to weight myself this month.  I don't want to be crazy about weighing myself so I've limited to once a month.  It's helpful that I don't own a scale and have to use the industrial one at work.  LOL

Well, as you can tell from my title I lost 8 pounds this month.  I'm down 18 pounds total since I started this new eating and exercising life style.  I hate the word diet because that seem so temporary.  I think to be able to lose the weight and keep it off you have to change your habits. 

Just last week I started to notice a change in certain areas of my body not much but I have noticed a change.  I still haven't dropped a clothing size but I do think I'm getting close to it.   

9. Do something for someone else (5 different people) that is completely unselfish. (2/5)

Ok, this seems like a small thing but I think it counts.  I'm not crazy tall but I'm tall enough to reach the top shelf at the grocery store.  I often get asked by people to grab something that they can't reach.

Well, my DD and I went to the grocery store on Thursday.  This sweet little old lady complimented how adorable my DD is (which she is adorable), then asked if I could reach that can of beans on the top shelf for her.  Sure no problem and I got to do a good deed for a stranger.  I love that my DD was there to see me do something for someone else and hopeful teach her to help others when needed. 

50. Keep car clean for 1 whole month.

I've been doing really well with this but I do still have 16 more days to go.

12. Visit 100 random blogs and leave comment(s). (100/100)

I completed this one but I know I'll never stop my interest in finding cool/fun blogs.


  1. Yay!! Congrats on the extra pounds off, helping people in need, being a great role model, and just for being yourself! Love you.

  2. Good for you! 18 pounds is a great accomplishment! I love this list of much to smile about here...even a clean car ;P

  3. Love Comment Blog ♥ (2/3)

    I really need to keep my car clean for one month! I can' barely keep it clean for 2 days!
