So....I lost 9 lbs this week!!!!!

No Gimmicks. No Pills. I was never hungry, and rarely felt sorry for myself about what I could not eat. I ate really tasty food and have felt better this week than I have all of the 52 weeks of 2010. I just followed the old school weight watcher points plan, and exercised 5 out of 8 days. The night before weigh in I did my version of a "last chance work out."

It included:

15 minutes on the treadmill
10 minutes on the elliptical
50 crunches
10 squats
50 steps on the step
Random dancing and jogging in place
20 medicine ball pass thingys that I did with Brian
Boxing that I did with my husband. He kept having me punch mitts in all different ways. It was no joke, so when he saw I was hurting, he would do the countdown to make me do 10 more....

It was such a nice rush of good feelings all over my body. It was a full hour work out. I drank 3 bottles of water during, so that helped me get in my water requirements.

It was a very nice surprise to see that WEEK ONE..I was down 9 lbs already! What a great motivator going into the 2nd week.

Do you do any last chance work outs before weigh in day? If not, give it a try. I think it made a difference for me!!!
