I weighed in for a 2lb loss this morning, so that’s 2lbs over 2 weeks. Not great, but still going in the right direction.

Here’s a recap of my goals from the start of the challenge: 

Goal: Run 5K twice a week (outside or treadmill)

Not happening yet and I think this may have been too lofty. I will start running regularly again as of March 9.

 Goal: Track and stay within WWP+ every day/week (27 per day + 49 per week)

Yes!!!! To be honest this one was easy as I’ve been doing it so long. I’m now down to 26 points per day and I think since the challenge started, I went over my total points on one day.

Goal: Run 2x a week either inside or treadmill. Do some kind of workout 5x a week

No running to speak of, but I have been walking every day

Goal: My check in day will be Wednesdays as that’s my WW Weigh-In day. I’ll blog at least 4x a week about progress and life in general.

I’m averaging about 3x a week but always do my weekly update!

Goal: Following a whole bunch people doing the challenge.

I’m following about half the challengers and I try to comment at least once a week on each of their blogs.  I also have Cowgirl Warrior as my motivation buddy and it’s great checking in with her just about every day.

I’ve been doing well with eating, not exactly following the metabolic diet but going in and out of Phase 1 and 2 and keeping track of carbs. I’ve noticed that I have cut way back on fruit as well as the starchy/high carb vegetables and also am drinking a whole lot more water than I was before.

Goals for Week 9:

  • Keep walking
  • Keep eating the way I’m eating now
  • Keep tracking
  • Keep in touch with my buddy


  1. Your weight is consistently going down, and that is why we're here, right? And of course, to get healthy. Great job!

  2. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, GIRL! That's great! 11.5 lbs?! You are on fire!

  3. I think that averaging over 1lb per week is uber cool...well done!

  4. I'm so grateful your my buddy, way to go on your progress - you are a rock star!!!!

  5. I agree with Kyle, I think 1lb a week is good. You're doing well in this challenge, look at those 11.5lbs gone!

  6. Congrats on the loss this week! Keep up the awesome work.
