Operation Weight Loss Week 11- The incredible shrinking woman

After a great trip to Nashville for the Blissdom blogging conference I had no expectation of dropping any pounds. Although I made pretty wise food choices, I did indulge more than once. My weakness is craisins and almonds, I had them with me for a snack and let's just say "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!" LOL I also had some fried foods - coconut shrimp and a puffed pastry that was amazing. Despite these indulgences, I still made sure I exercised. I tried a new machine at the hotel gym called the Mountain Trainer and that thing kicks butt! If you are a member of a gym and they have one you have to try it out. I burned crazy calories in a short amount of time! Staying at the Opryland Hotel ensured that I'd get exercise too. That place has over 2800 rooms, it is huge! Walking around was a workout.

At today's weigh-in I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I am down .9 - almost an entire pound! This brings my total weight loss to 26.2 pounds! I am ecstatic. Check out my video to see more of my enthusiasm and it looks like in a couple of weeks I may need to go shopping for a smaller pair of jeans! I am certainly shrinking fast!

Hi Renee, I am so proud of you!!!! Since we last spoke I have had some sadness so my weight has taken a small toll. Two days after Thanks Giving my brother-in-law passed away. Two days after Christmas my dear wonderful sister went to join him. The stress and sadness just doesn't fit in with eating right. I am better now and back on my work outs so the few pounds I gained will be off soon.

You stick with it!!!

Awesome! Craisins and almonds kind of taste like peanut butter and jelly when you eat them together, I love it.
