Katie: Week 21

It's picture time!

Current weight: 141 pounds
Last week's weight: 142 pounds
Total weight loss: 29 pounds

Pictures: Week 21

Week 11:
Week 1:

Well, I thought since so many of you wanted to see me in my skinny jeans I'd take pictures in those this week.  And the shirt I'm wearing is a Curves shirt my mom sent to me.  (Thanks Mom!)  Let's just say I usually make a conscious effort to suck in when I wear this shirt, which is good for my abs.  But the shirt is super comfortable and fits me great everywhere else.  I'm especially excited for the day when I can wear it with no tummy!  Also, yes, it really has been that long since I took pictures.  Sorry!  I will try to be better about that.  (And, yes, I am fully aware that in my second picture from today I totally look like Randall from Monster's Inc.)

As for my goals...

Having a goals chart that I can physically write things down on and see all the time has been great.  (Click HERE for a tutorial on how to make your own.)  Obviously I didn't meet all of my goals 100%, but I do feel like I'm making progress and this gives me a solid idea of some things I need to work on.  And, I would just like to add that I had every intention of going running last night (and had already planned to go with a friend)... right up until the maintenance guys came to take care of some mold in our bathtub/shower and left with the instructions to "not use the shower until morning."  Yeah, so, running definitely wasn't going to happen without being able to take a shower afterward.  And my very nice downstairs neighbor did offer the use of her shower, but I just wasn't feeling so committed anymore.  Anyway, hopefully the rain we're having right now will clear up so I can go running later today.

How are all of you doing with your weight loss/fitness goals?  Anything you're trying to overcome?  Any tips you want to share?

Looking good, Katie! I like the goals chart. Maybe I should do that, too. It would make me publicly (with the family) accountable if I stuck it on the fridge. I like the skinny jeans! (Are you still drinking veggie juice to help with your veggie servings?)

Holy Moly- way better than week 1! Good job!

And you look better in skinny jeans than I would...so way to go. I know this doesn't really help, and you are probably way busy already with the big O, but I have been so busy lately that I just forget to snack! I mean, of course I get some meals and even enjoy a piece of chocolate here and there, but I am just too crazy to think about snacking and it has been really nice- I have started to sleep like a dream too! (But please don't be like me and get two jobs just so you are busy!)

I will ponder some tips and tricks and let you know...

(by the way, when is your race?)

You look great Katie! We saw you walking with O on our way to the temple friday night and you look even more great in person than in photos! Congrats!

We'd love to hear from you!
