So in the last 4 weeks, I've lost 1.4 lbs. The month before that I lost 8.8 lbs. What's up with that you are asking? Well I'm pretty sure it's from the heavy weight lifting program that I'm doing. I refuse to be discouraged by it. As I've stated so many many times, this is a lifelong quest, not a mini-sprint! I'm working the program, working out hard, and the weight will come off when it comes off. I'm getting tighter and more toned every day and am healthier than I've ever been. It feels good. My husband (who is my best friend for good reason) told me last night that eventually the loss will pick back up. Right now I'm building muscle that is going to make me a lean, mean, fat burnin' machine! He said it might even be summer before the loss picks back up, but that's ok, as long as I'm working the program and working out. AND HE'S RIGHT! It doesn't matter! I won't lie and say that I wasn't disappointed this morning when I got on the scale and saw that the 6/10 of a pound I lost last week was back. I was a little bit down, but it's all part of it. I was fully prepared for this to happen when I began the New Rules of Lifting for Women program.

Anywho....I'm feelin' good, feelin' fit, feelin' fabulous! I've included a picture from when I first began my journey on July 7, 2009 and then a picture taken last night. Click on it to see a bigger version!

  1. I am Sarah's sister, Susie. I have been reading her blog since she started it. First, I am VERY proud of her. Second, I wanted to give her something that everyone can see that she can be VERY proud of. A little history, I have always been the scrawy one, very petite and small. SO... for your incouragement... Sarah, I measured my waist and hips today, and if I measured correctly, my waist is 30 and my hips are 38. What are your measurements again?? You can bet your weight loss that I am hitting the treadmill and exercise because I love you, but I am not going to let you catch me. Ha, Ha. Keep up the excellent work. I love you and am so proud of you. Suz

  2. Keep it up girlie! Your husband is right. Keep building that muscle and you'll be burning more calories and the weight will start back down. I hit many of a plateau before. It too will pass.
