Jack Sh*t's Half-Ass Half-A-Pound Challenge Results!!

Please cast your gaze rightwards and absorb with your eyeballs the true and beauteous glory that is the badge of my accomplishment. 

I did it.

I lost that half-ass half a pound. 

But I didn't stop there. Ohhh no. 

I lost TWO pounds. 

As of Wednesday July 1st, I weigh 198 lbs. 

I know, this is a lot to take in, but I am also going to add MORE excitement by giving you my measurement losses. Take a deep breath. I don't want anyone hyperventilating in front of the computer from sheer excitement overload. 

Chest: 2.5 inches (don't worry, "the girls" aren't going to disappear!)
Ribcage: 1.5 inches
Waist: 2 inches
Hips:  2 inches
Upper thigh: 2 inches
Upper arm: 2 inches

This confirms my theory that my gained and lost weight is distributed very evenly over my whole body. I am generally 2 inches smaller! Yay! 

And to further update you (another deep breath...keep it together now):

It has been a good day, but not such a good day for eating. I hope I don't gain back those two lbs. before I can bask in the glory of losing them! 

My fabulous, wonderful friend Lara allowed me to accompany her to that mecca of all things Swedish-- Ikea. We bought some things for her new condo, and then went for lunch. I had an individual pepperoni pizza. It. Was. So. Freakin. Good. It was a foodgasm. When I got home, I may have sunk into a grease/fat induced coma-like state and crashed on the couch. After some dozing, I hauled my ass over to the bike and did my 30 minutes with weights, and my sit ups. With the sit-ups, I am trying to do 100 at a time. Not all the same kind, mind you, but 100 all together. I have to say, I've noticed some nice soreness in the abdominal area. Coool. 

To compound my pizza badness, I am going out for dinner with hubby to celebrate the birth of our nation. I have no idea what I am going to eat there that won't do me in completely. I guess one good thing is we are walking to the restaurant. It's about a 15-20 min. walk there. 

I guess I will see tomorrow if the scale hates me and sends me back up to 200 for my bad behaviour. Wish me luck my lovely blogger friends! 

Stats for the day: (this would be Wednesday)

Exercise: 35 min + a projected 35 min.= 70 min.

Weight: 198 (please stay here!!)

Congrats on the loss!

Thanks for the comment on my blog too, I can't help that no bullshit attitude. It's who I am lol. You should see one girl I work with, she's terrified of me!

I miss the red too, it isn't weird at all lol.

I'm in awe of you. What a risk, putting your weight loss journey online. I lost 68 pounds about 5 years ago and then put it all back on. As I age it gets harder and harder to lose it again. Good for you, working at it while you're still young! Congratulations on your success so far!
