Weight Loss Challenge: Week 4

It’s a short week (in regards to our challenge) but I still want to know how you did last week. Questions for last week are below. Our Weight Loss challenge officially ends on Wednesday November 12th. On Wednesday I’ll post a challenge wrap up with a few questions for you to blog about (if you choose to). I’ll also talk about our Weight Loss Challenge giveaway!

1. How was your week?

Humm…..let’s just say it was ok; not bad but not good. I worked out 2 times but kept extremely busy running all over the place. When things get busy it seems the first thing that goes out the window is my diet.

2. If any, what were the challenges you faced?

Our restaurant had a booth at an elementary school festival over the weekend. I was serving up pizza left and right! I ran out of time after getting everything set up for the event and didn’t eat lunch. I was starving and the pizza was looking real good but I didn’t eat any…..not one slice! Kent who was running pizzas back and forth during the event showed up with a healthy sandwich for me. I know, how sweet is he?

After the event we treated ourselves to a movie. Kent left to go to the bathroom and came back with a huge and I’m talking jumbo size bucket of buttered popcorn. We never get popcorn at the movies I have no idea why he thought it was good idea that night. He thought he was doing something sweet….”We can share it” he said. Ahh that popcorn smelled so good but I stayed focused on the movie and made through most of the movie without having any; even with it being passed over me to our friend who was sitting on the other side of me. The last few minutes of the movie my hand decided to dive into the popcorn bucket (all on its own)! It hung out there for a few minutes while I talked it down :o) I pulled my hand out of the XXXXXXL size bucket popcorn free! I was so happy that I didn’t cave. I was tempted but didn’t do it. After the move Kent made a comment about gross he felt after he ate all that popcorn, and that he had no idea why he thought it was a good idea to buy it. You can guess what I was thinking.

3. Do you have a favorite motivational quote or saying that you think about when things get tough? Include that here or find a new one that you can think about next week when something is trying to sway your progress next week. Be sure you share your quote or saying with us.

At the end of every WW meeting we end with a motivational quote. I write them down so I can look back at them during the week.

*"You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be." -David Viscott

*"Living a healthy lifestyle will only deprive you of poor health, lethargy, and fat." -Jill Johnson

*"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can." Unknown

*This is one of my favorites:"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsbility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."-Anonymous


  1. I am down 13.5 pounds. I can't believe it and I'm finally starting to sorta look like ME again!

    I'm so happy!

    Kudos to YOU!


  2. Those are great accomplishments! Resisting bad food when you're starving is no small feat. Those are great quotes too, I'll have to go find some good ones.

  3. Down a couple of pounds this week - YIPPEE!! And I'm getting back in the habit of exercising every day. Doing it immediately after work seems to be best for me - no chance of being distracted by all the other things on my "to do" list if I do it before I even go home! Great quotes - thanks for the inspiration!
