Week One

So, weight loss is a really funny thing.  I've been reading all the posts this morning, and wondering why it sometimes works that the girls who have been so strict in their diet and exercise are the ones who actually gain weight.  It seems sort of random and arbitrary sometimes.  All this to say, I wasn't exactly strict this week.  In fact, last night I went out with friends and had pizza and chocolate pie--not exactly what you eat the night before a weigh-in.  But the random, arbitrary god of weight-loss deemed that I should be a lucky one this week, and I lost three pounds. I'm sure most of it is water weight, because really, my weight fluctuates between 131 and 134 regularly.  So while it's a good thing, the three pound loss, it's not exactly a breakthrough.  That will come next week when I break into the 120's!!  

Also, those of you who wondered last week if I was a small person, yes I am.  I'm 5'2" and pretty petite in size.  That's why I can't really hold onto 134 as a decent weight.  And, this is not my regular blog.  I can't blog about weight loss on that, for that very reason.  I would have people saying, "But Erin, you don't need to loose weight!"  So if you're interested in reading more about me, check out my real-life blog.   

See you later!


  1. Congrats on the loss, Erin! I'm short too and completely understand how you're feeling! So many people are much taller than us and 134 would be perfect for them. But it's not for us!! You need to get to a weight where you feel comfortable!

  2. That's great-it's hard enough to lose weight, but 3 lbs is incredible!! Keep it up!!


  3. I'm short too and totally understand.

    Holy cow, 3 lbs?? That's awesome! Great job!

  4. Hey...great job with 3 lbs. I agree with you 100%, weight loss is a funny thing. I also can relate, I am 5' flat. I always have family/friends telling me that I don't need to lose weight. However, at 134 lbs I am considered overweight. That is why I am hiding out, developing another blog and not sharing my dieting blog fun.
