Take it off Monday | Week 1

I lost 2 pounds! Whoo hoo! Want to know my secret? I actually did nothing! Well, that's not quite true. What I should say is that it is not about anything I did, but what I specifically did not do.

Let me back track. I'll admit that I love wine. I really enjoy a fine wine. John and I discovered an excellent local wine during our anniversary dinner a few months back--Veramar Vineyard's 2010 Cabernet Franc. I even like to partake in a good cheap wine. Sometimes, yes sometimes that one glass of wine will turn into several which translates into lots of empty calories. So, this week I didn't have any wine. Not. One. Drop. And you know what? I didn't even miss it. Now part of that could be due to the fact that the kids and I were suffering from a horrid cold, and I just collapsed into my bed every evening, but it is obvious I don't need those extra calories during the week.

I've also decided to set some goals and rewards for myself in regards to weight loss. I've taken this idea from Jenni who writes a fantastic blog. She and I were pregnant with both our kids at the same time and it is fun for me to keep up with her life. She is one fun and inspirational gal!

Weight loss this week: 2 lbs 
Weight loss to date: 2 lbs
Weight left to lose: 18 lbs
First Goal: 10 pounds 
  • Reward: Mani/Pedicure
Second Goal: 15 pounds
  • Reward: Massage
Final Goal: 20 pounds
  • Reward: New Bag
Success: Losing first 2 pounds and cutting wine during the week
Exercise: Nothing yet due to horrible cold (excuses, excuses, right?)
