Rounding UP: Fat Friday

I was hoping that by today’s Fat Friday update I would be able to report that I had lost 70 pounds. I am .8 pounds away from that goal, so I can’t make that announcement.


I also have no one to blame for failing to make this goal by today except myself. I have not truly exercised in more than two weeks. I quit doing my morning workout when I became sick with sinuses. I normally do workouts about 4 times a week, and I haven’t done so for the last two weeks. I have also been spending a lot of time sitting at my computer. I am working when at my computer, but it makes it harder to get my workout in.

But I do have good news to report. I need a drum roll.

[rat at tat tat atat atat]

I have lost 64.25 inches from 13 key areas that I measure: right thigh, left thigh, right arm, left arm, neck, chest, waist, hips, left calf, right calf, and the widest area on my body that I call butt/hips.

I need to get back in the swing of things. I have seen an improvement in my breathing, so I no longer have an excuse.

I also need to continue to drink lots of fluid. I was doing well early last week, which brought me some additional losses. I have slacked off the past few days, and the scale stopped moving.

Yesterday, my husband and I had 45 minutes to spare before my daughter’s basketball game started. He asked me how I wanted to spend the time. I suggested we use the time to walk around the balcony area that circles the basketball court and get some exercise in.

At the time of my suggestion, he was turning into the high school. He looked at me weird and said, “Who are you and what have you done with my wife?” He did a little u-turn instead of turning into the high school. Instead, we went to a nearby bar, and I nibbled on peanuts.

So we didn’t do the walking, but it does show that my thought process has changed. Now, I just need to make my actual actions change too. This coming week? No excuses for not exercising!


That’s a 64.25 loss in inches!
