A-weigh down south in Dixie!

(Have you figured out that I find it necessary to give all my weigh-in posts punny names? Wonder how many plays on "weigh" and "weight" I can come up with...)

I skipped last Monday's weigh-in since I was in Minneapolis indulging beyond my dieting limits. So today's lost pounds are from a two-week period (that included way too many calories and several skipped workouts.) So I'm quite pleased to tell you I'm down 3lbs!  I don't know if I gained after our Valentine's romp...I didn't weigh myself afterwards. So this loss could include a gain, but I'm not complaining!! No siree! 

I sometimes feel like it's coming off too maybe there's something I could do, or something I could deprive myself of, to get faster results. But then I think, y'know, I am getting results this way and it's not torture. The occasional treat (I had about a handful of peanut butter M&M's and several Twizzlers at Saturday night's crop) not cutting anything out entirely... (I mean, I had pancakes for breakfast again this morning. What kind of diet IS THIS? *haha* They were Fiber One pancakes of course, but golly they're so good they taste sinful!!) The odds of me sustaining this long enough to reach my goal are much higher than if I were eating nothing but tuna and lettuce. (I don't even like tuna!) So I'll just plod along, doin' what I'm doin'. Slow and steady wins the race, right? If I stop losing weight, I guess I'll reevaluate the situation.

Hey I have some other news! My blog got an award!! I know, right? Who would've seen that coming?  :) But it's true. (I would also like to note that I now have 22 followers! I am beyond boggled by that...thanks for reading, folks!) Etta from over at Adventures In Holy Matrimony deemed me worthy of this cute little bloggy award:

I am quite flattered! Thanks Etta! And now, because this honor has been bestowed on me, I get to pass it on! Here are the rules of selection:

“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

So in no particular order, here are my nominees!!

3. Samantha's And Then I Said... 
6. Nikki's A Scrappy Chick
8. Ginny's Chris & Ginny

Due to the "Friend" nature of this award, I chose to give it to the bloggers I do know in "real life." But I couldn't even fit all of you in, since I'm limited to 8. (I have way too much guilt over this. *haha*)

I sometimes feel impatient, and wish all of my weight would just drop off at once too. But, I try to look at it logically, like you are. All the statistics say it is more likely to stay off if you take it off slow. But sometimes I just want it GONE NOW!!! Ugh!

Congrats on the loss this week! :)

You should be proud of yourself, Sarah! I have been working my tail off training for this triathlon and I still can't lose any weight! :( And I eat well too - lots of veggies, lean protein, oatmeal, etc. I'm hoping that as I get further along with my training, it will finally start coming off. Until then, I just have to be patient and look for tips and tricks from fellow thanks for always sharing! :)

Congrats on the weight loss. Three pounds in two weeks is not bad at all. I'm pretty sure you're doing better than I have over the same period. I have been baaaaaad.

Yay for you!

Hooray for your 3lb loss! You are doing an amazing job! It's all about finding things like your pancakes -- they taste too good to be diet food -- to help you continue to succeed!

Keep up the great blogging!!

Good for you for losing weight without a crazy diet. I'm hoping to lose some weight too soon.
