Well, I’m sure that many of you noticed that I didn’t weigh in last week. Annnnnnnnnd, that’s because:

1) I had JUST gotten back from Austin on Sunday.

2) I had portrait sessions every day… Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

3) I gained 1lb while I was there πŸ™‚ Can I just say… “vacationing” was MUCH harder that I expected it to be!!! Almost ALL of our food was out to eat. We thought we could go to the grocery and I could get some healthy foods but… we were just too busy for all that business. So, only gaining one pound wasn’t as bad as I had feared! (Though, I did work out in their lame little gym)

Reason three probably being the main factor… but I’d rather stick with excuses number one and two because it makes me feel better. So, THIS week… I was pretty hard core to make up for the pound I gained. πŸ™‚ Though I’ve been quite busy… I still made time to eat the foods I was supposed to and work out a few times πŸ˜€

So, at the end of this week, I’m SUPER happy to report that I lost THREE POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That puts my total weight loss at 13 lbs πŸ˜€ HOW FREEKIN’ EXCITING IS THAT?! Only SEVEN more lbs for WPPI… That means I have 3 weeks and two days to make it happen. I’m feeling pretty confident over here πŸ˜€






I am starting to notice a bit of difference. Tomorrow we have a wedding for the first time since Dec 29… so, that was the last time I wore one of my suits. I decided to try one on yesterday morning and, WELLLLLL… it’s too big πŸ˜€ I’ve decided not to buy another one… because I’m still losing weight and don’t want to spend a fortune on a new suit for every ten lbs I lose. So, until I start looking sloppy in it, you guys will just have to deal with “too big” πŸ˜€ Gosh, it’s all so exciting!

I’ve also been sleeping better! Which for me, is HUGE! I go to bed no later than 2am (I’ll always be a night owl)… and am up by around 8. I don’t need nearly the amount of sleep I used to require to function. I have more energy than I’ve had in a long time, it’s fab. πŸ™‚

And now onto our total weight loss πŸ™‚

The TOTAL weight loss to date for all of us… 198.4 LBS!!!! πŸ˜€

There are now 42 people on that list. πŸ˜€

Heather Cole, our co-conductor (HA!) and I are leading the pack with the most pounds lost, YEAH! (she’s lost 13 pounds, too… go tell her she’s a skinny betty!) Though, she hasn’t blogged it yet… she will soon, so stand by πŸ˜€

Seven of you have already reported your weight loss for the week.

Four of you haven’t told us how much they’ve lost since January 26… πŸ™

THREE NEW NAMES ON THAT LIST!!!! πŸ˜€ It’s never too late to join, so HOP ON BABY!

31 of us are photographers.

Six of you guys are our brides/grooms.

One of you is a wedding coordinator.

One of you is a mother of the bride.

Three of you are avid blog readers.

Five people have reported zero pounds lost (though a few of them have said that they’re just working on toning up).


I’m SO thankful for each and everyone of you who’ve been incredibly supportive. You have no idea how motivating and exciting this is for me. I’m beginning to feel more confident in myself. That = awesome! Can’t wait till next Friday!!!!!!!!

LOVE!!!! πŸ™‚

~ Healthy train conductor, ❗ + TOOT TOOT TOOT! (That’s not the sound of me farting… it’s the sound of our train. πŸ˜‰ Yeah, I’m lame)

PS. If I’ve left anyone out… I apologize. I have all of you in an Excel sheet, so I know everyones total weight losses πŸ˜€ There are a lot of you coming and going… so it gets a bit tricky at times. Just let me know in the comment section if your name isn’t on that list πŸ™‚ Also… some of you have been emailing me your weight loss throughout the week. While I think that’s great it’s just too much for me to handle. So, if you all could just leave it in the comments, that would be FABULOUS! And if you want to weigh in early, you’re welcome to do so in the previous weight loss comment section. Sorry to be difficult πŸ˜‰

PPS. The heat is out in our house… I can’t feel my fingers so typing this has taken FOREVER! Luckily, we’re on a “lease with the option to buy” plan so… we still have a landlord who deals with this stuff. On that note, I don’t think we’ll be buying! Too many problems here… BLEH! More on that later (I’m so sick of moving!)
