Yeah, you read that right… I’ve lost FOUR POINT ONE POUNDS!!!!!!! 😀 It’s been a tough week full of headaches and cravings but BADABOOM BADABING… FOUR POINT ONE POUNDS LESS!!!!
I was glad that I was successful… but I felt a little discouraged thinking about how long this is going to take… UNTIL… I took a photo of FOUR POUNDS OF BUTTER! OH MY GOD!!!!! THAT’S A LOT OF BUTTA! Butter is about the equivalent of fat, so it made sense to me. Oh, and before you ask why we have that much butter in our house… we were going to bake Christmas cookies, but… go figure… nevergot around to it. Don’t you worry… NO MORE FATTILICIOUS BUTTER FOR ME!
This week I’m going to start going to the gym… EEEEKS! Wish me luck on that.
Heather Cole, my good friend and AWESOME photographer in Kansas City is doing a weight loss challenge on her blog, too. It’s SO exciting knowing that I have a friend that has the same struggles as me and we’re doing it TOGETHER! Go check out her blog and leave some comments. 😀 She’s weighing in every Friday, too… so keep an eye on that! 😀 (she’s down 3.7 YEAH!) AHHH!!!! SO EXCITING!
PLEEEEEEASE stay with me on this, PLEASE?! It’s SO motivating knowing you guys are supporting and joining me on this healthier life style. 😀 I was INCREDIBLY blown away by the FORTY EIGHT comments on my post last Saturday. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!
How are YOU guys doing?! TELL MEEEEE! PLEEEEEEEEASE?!
LOVE TO YOU ALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!

You’re awesome just how you are, but I definitely support you in this. You’ll feel so much better about yourself not only physically, but emotionally. AND I’ll bet that will even be reflected in your photography! Good luck!
OMg – that’s crazy! I am super excited for you…and real jealous! What will be your reward if you make it in time for WPPI – you should plan some time at the spa – or Mikey can hook you up with a surprise…hint, hint. Best of Luck!
AWESOME! Love how creative you are with your photo. ; )
I went to yoga this week, so that’s how I’m doing! (Baby steps…)
Yippee for you!!!!! Four pounds?! That’s awesome!!!!
wow… that’s going to be a lot of “butta” when you get up to 20 lbs. good job bobbi! I weighed myself and I lost 3 lbs. it’s a start!
wow… you had 3 comments at exactly 4:19. weird.
You go girl!!! Keep on rocking out and you’ll lose it fast!!
Congrats!!!! Keep up the good work!!!! = )
B – I’m so proud of you. This week was so much easier because I have you. I’m so proud of you and your FOUR plus pound loss! I will be here for you through every step. Here’s to the best year of our lives!
ALRIGHTY MS. THANG!
You are totally on. Cathy and I are going to join you on your weight loss challenge! See if you can keep up. Unfortunately I’m the kind of guy that can just stop snacking and drop 30lbs, so don’t try to keep up. 😉 Course…then…I start getting hungry and gain it back in two days…hmmm…
Anyways, we’re gonna do it with you Bobbi! Here’s to me no longer being athletically challenged!!! I WILL NOT BE OUT OF BREATH! BWAH!
Way to go Bobbi! 4.1 is completely wonderful.
Congrats!! 4lbs is a lot for one week. Keep at it. you can do it *insert little pink cheerleader with yellow pompoms*
Way to go indeed! That’s so awesome!
I wish I could say I’m doing well, but I’ve had the flu all week 🙁 I have been taking good care of myself though; drinking A LOT of green tea, ginger tea, water, OJ and pretty much just eating vegetable soup and oatmeal!
I really like this checking in every week idea because I have been wanting to start exercising regularly, like AT LEAST 3 times a week, and continuing to eat well. So I vow to post here every Friday too to say if I have or not! That’ll whip me into shape! 🙂
Keep up the good work, Bobbi!
way to go sister sledge! you should be very proud of yourself-that’s an amazing first week! be encouraged…you have lots of support.
VERY cool pic BTW :0)
Way to go! Congrats on an awesome first week
Yay! That’s awesome – I feel you on those cravings. Raw almonds seem to do the trick though. Any time you are craving something sweet or starchy grab a handfull of almonds. They are good for you and the protein makes the craving disappear. I used to eat a half a bag of pb M&Ms every night – almonds got me though… hehe. Keep up the good work!
Bobbi that’s awesome. Congrats
Yay!!!!!!!!!!! You’re focused, you’re fabulous, you’re fast becoming fit!
I’ve had a good gym week but not great eating week. But I refuse to get deflated and I just readjust each day.
Rough week here, but I still lost 1lb! Woo! Once I figure out how to fit either the gym or Weight Watchers into my schedule (preferably both!) I’m hoping for some acceleration on my progress. 🙂 Working a 9-5 job AND doing photography on top of that is HARD!
Okay Bobbi! I missed this last week, but I’m totally up for the challenge. Besides, with my wedding only 2 months away, I could use a friendly little boost! Congrats on loosing 4.1- that’s a fabulous start!
I’ve lost TWO lbs!
Way to go, Bobbi! You’re inspiring me to go the healthy route!
The questions that begs asking is “Why did you ever have 4 boxes of butter in your house to begin with?!?!?” Ok, maybe I don’t want you to answer that.
Dude! Congrats lady!!!! That butter pic is kind of insane….rock on!
That picture of butter is soo awesome in a photography sense and sooooo disgusting in a food sense 🙂
It is awesome that you are posting every Friday – knowing others are anticipating your update is a huge motivator. Also awesome that you didn’t focus on going to the gym until week two – take baby steps, habits are so so hard to break!!!
Reminder – you are just perfect the way you are!!! Anything steps forward are improvement and any ‘inactive/non weight-loss’ days mean you are just as wonderful as you always were 🙂
*Sidebar – I belive I have set a new Guiness World Record of checking the blog for our wedding pics everyday–we are obsessed. We were so thrilled with our engagment pics we just can’t wait for the wedding ones!
Hi Bobbi! Congrats on the 4 lbs gone 🙂 I’m trying to work on the 7 lbs I gained over the Holidays, ARGGGG. (plus a few more from before that) Here’s a fun beverage to try. Diet Sprite or diet Siera mist over a bunch of ice. Then add 100% Cranberry juice…..the really potent stuff that’s pretty nasty on it’s own….just a spash of it to the soda. It makes a sweat and tart refreshing drink that’s low calorie and good for you w/ the cranberry juice 🙂
Keep up the good work!
Oh man, that is so great!!! I’ve never seen my scale drop that far! EVER! You’re keeping me motivated, so thanks!
You lost 4 pounds with just eating habits?!? That means you were GOOOOOOOOD! Congrats there hotness – we love you! p.s. you and I are going to be those two annoying girls that chat chat chat on the ellipticals next weekend – bring your running shoes!
WOOHOOOO, You go Bobster. I know you can do it. I love you,
That’s awesome, Bobbi! Congrats!
My scale was down over 5 lbs at one point but only one on official weigh in day (Thursdays for me). Oh well. Better than nothing!
Bobbi that is fantastic! Keep it up girl you can do this!
YAY FOR BOBBI!!!! That’s awesome! Loosing weight is hard…especially when we sit infont of a computer for hours on end!!!! So proud of you!!! Thanks for making the post…it’s encouraging to me to jump on my DUSTY treadmill!
Well…..I’m down 5 pounds, but most of it has to do with the fact that I’ve been eating VERY LITTLE, stressing out with work all week and I’ve cut out breads, pastas & starches COMPLETELY!
Coincidentally I’m starting at the gym this week too (if I get around to re-upping my membership) and THAT should be when the real difference happens.
GREAT JOB Bobbi! Proud of you – of US! Keep it up and lose the butta! 🙂
Good work! Keep it up 🙂
YAY!!!!! Awesome job Bobbi! Keep this up and your gonna look great for Las Vegas as well as the lake this summer! Love to you both!
You go Bobbi!! And seriously, that is a lot of butter to just have handy. It makes me laugh 🙂
bobbi, i am hanging my head in shame!!! i just got through munching on a chocolate oatmeal cookie. 🙁 ok, i’m inspired now…no more cookies…what have you done this week to lose the weight? let me know, i’m mucho interested. oh…we also booked our flight last night for wppi, i’m so excited!!!!!! i really do hope we get to meet this year! you guys are always such an inspiration to me! kudos-tara
Good for you!! Whenever I lose weight, my mom always compares it to butter! LOL
As for me, I wrote down everything I ate this week. And went to the gym all 5 days. Feels *soooo* good to get back to it!
3 snaps up. You’re awesome.
Bobbi, you’re so friggin awesome! That picture is incredible. How do you think of this stuff? You should do food portraits….I’d totally hang that butter pic in my kitchen…I love me some butter. Probably not the best food for weight loss but man, what a visual for your hard work!!! Work it, Bobbilicious!!!
I’m in too, Bobbi. I’m starting tomorrow with the people at my work.
Whoo Hooo, congrats!!
I weighed in on Friday also and am down 2.6 pounds and have gotten into my workout routine at the gym. I really hate to exercise, no really, I hate it, but I do feel better afterwards and there’s nothing like feeling a sore butt muscle that you didn’t even know existed! hehehe
Have a fabulous week!
i’m proud of you!
ANTHROPOLOGIE HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! That’s awesome Bobbi!!!! Man, I didn’t loose an ounce, think I gained two lbs as a matter of fact. But I have gone to the gym 2 days this week and will be trying the “Awesome abs” that our gym is offering tomorrow. You ROCK girlie girlie… hey why not gross me out and show me what that much butter looks like? Maybe that will get me off my arse!
You have inspired me with your positive attitude (and the 4 lbs of butter visual) so I have found a wt. watcher meeting place here in Naples and i am going on MONDAY!!!!! Can’t wait!! You ARE an inspiration for all your supporters! Can’t wait for your friday report!!
wow! awesome job! thats a lot of butter!! lol, i just had a baby…well, a year ago, haha, so i feel ya! its a long road, but your obviously kick that rd’s but!! keep it up!!
