Weigh in Wednesday!

Well today is weigh in day and the official start weight for the SCC Challenge!!! Over the Christmas holiday and in the post holiday eating craze, I gained 7 pounds and I was 277.9, still lower than the picture update I put up...but it wasn't a happy number. I've been dancing with 277 for way too long. WAY TOO LONG! This week I had some struggles with temptation but my official weight in weight today is...

Drumroll Please...


This is not the lowest I've hit on Jenny Craig, which my consultant constantly reminds me of...but it's a starting point. So today I set my SCC goal. I thought long and hard about this goal and what I want to do with it. I want to be realistic but I also want to challenge myself. That's what this is about, right!?

Starting Weight: 271.2
Target Weight: 240

That is a goal of a little over 2.5 pounds a week which I think is appropriate and acceptable. It'll be hard when I go to Italy but I know my sister and I are going to be doing a TON of walking!! And if I'm losing more than that...which I think I might after yesterday's workout...I'll tinker with it. I also bought myself a very special article of clothing that I'm hoping might fit...

I bought it and THEN read the reviews...which could be a problem because a lot of people say this dress runs small. I'm in an XL now and this dress is a large but I'm thinking it might not fit until I'm much smaller (if at all, I do have a larger bust). But anyway, I would love to fit in this dress!!!! AT SOME POINT! It may be a goal dress and not just the SCC dress but...I am going to try it!

Cute huh?

Okay so...update on my goals for the week. What have I accomplished so far? Ummm well... let's just say I did a little more than take Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred off the DVD rack. The proof is in the pudding...I think mine is cherry. I worked out SO hard and today I am SO sore. I think I'm going to do my exercise bike today and some yoga...no 30 Day Shred for me today or I might break.

This is my WHAT DID I DO!? face...I also could barely take a picture because my hands were sweaty. WIN!


1) I will not let any one tempt me with leftover holiday goodies. - So far so good!

2) I will take time to read a magazine cover to cover without any interruptions.

3) I will take down all of the Christmas and Hannukah decorations and put them away.


1) I will exercise for at least 20 minutes each day. - 3 Days Down

2) I will work up the courage to try the 30 Day Shred


1) I will track my calories religiously on Sparkpeople.Com EVERY DAY! - 3 Days Down

2) I will drink at least 80oz (10 glasses) of water EVERY DAY! - 3 days Down

3) I will do at least 2 meals on my own on my Jenny Craig program. - In Progress


  1. Look at you marking stuff off the list and staying on target! Way to go!! Keep it up!

  2. You are doing fantastic! Keep up the good work!

  3. Love the dress. You're doing great on your goals!

  4. Haha I knew you'd love that DVD...Do you love me yet for sending it to you?

  5. That is such a cute dress! Where is it from? I may have to find it :)

    Awesome progress on your goals - I know how you feel about Jillian. Killer. Good luck the rest of the week :)

  6. Good job on getting things crossed off that list! Fantastic!!

  7. Thanks for all the support guys! I <3 you all!!!

    K - Dress is from ModCloth.Com. I love this place...I adore the clothes but...I haven't been able to fit into any of them before. So part of my goal (general goal, not specifically SCC goal) is to be able to fit in their lovely clothing!

  8. Cute dress!! And yay for losing just about all of your holiday weight gain!

  9. I LOVE that dress! That's one of my favorite sites to "shop" at. Right now I'm a little too big for most of the clothes there, but not for long!

    And you're going to look amazing when you're wearing that dress!

  10. Ah thank you, I think I just fell in love with lots of clothing! :)

  11. I love the sweaty pic, rock it out girlie!
