4th Week 15 lbs Lighter at 175 lbs.

First off, I'm sorry to anyone that was looking forward to last weeks weigh-in. I was camping with my daughter and 800 other Girl Scouts. But I was responsible for only 10 of them.

I managed to squeeze in a quick photo op today in the middle of my son's 5th birthday party. My son requested cupcakes with no frosting and a cake without frosting either. So I got a couple different ideas from the back of cake boxes and came up with this...confetti cake mix baked inside of ice cream cones with gummie Life Savers on top and the candle in the middle. My husband liked it he says, "Because there was cake all the way to the bottom." I liked it because it was sooo much easier to clean up after.

I gave myself permission to cheat yesterday at the end of 4 weeks. So I went to In-N-Out and ordered my usual. I have to say, "Huh, not so impressed." Kind of bummed

'cause I really wanted to lose myself in ecstasy. But also relieved that I can stop craving it. Now I crave seeing the scale move in the right direction.

Here's a funny story...I know where 12 of my 15 lbs I lost went to. My husband found them. In one month he managed to gain 12 lbs. He is so sweet and empathetic. I think he feels my hunger and starts craving food. He made 4 or 5 roast in the crock pot this month. Then devours it 'til it's gone(thank goodness for me). Next time he makes one I'll be sure to divide it up into separate lunch portions for him to take to work.


  1. What are you doing to lose weight?

  2. Shannon! Keep up the great work! =) You look awesome!


  3. You are totally awesome! Keep up the good work!

  4. You look great! Sorry about last Wed. and not being able to let Bliss stay. I had to go to the Dr. This Wed. isn't going to work either because I have to get Dawson's things packed for him to go out of town. Maybe the Wed. after that?

  5. Did you know you can get a protein burger at in and out? It's wrapped in lettuce. Just don't get the onions, too greasy and carby. Are you really hungry, or is that just a figure of speech? You shouldn't be hungry, so if you are call me and I'll help you make some adjustments. Keep it up! Remember, it's not the calories, it's the blood sugars, so keep on the program. 15 lbs. WOO HOO! Super cute cupcakes, btw.
