It’s Thursday! It’s actually the 5th Thursday that I have been blogging about my weight-loss transformation. Week 5 results are as follows: lost 5.5lbs for a total of 21 POUNDS LOST and 1 inch (on my HIPS at that) for a total of 13 inches lost. C.R.A.Z.Y is an under-statement. 5 short weeks ago I had NO IDEA that I was going to be taking my LIFE by the HORNS and ROCKING this challenge. I continue to surprise myself each week with results!!!!
Last week’s blog was a little short because I was crazy busy – but – one of the things that I vowed to work on in the Week 3 blog was to EAT more. EAT EAT EAT. That has HELPED me MORE than I could have EVER imagined. I have REALLY been trying to eat ALL of my calories each day – having only a few to spare, or only going over by a few. Man – WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I mean, how silly does this sound right now, “Hi, my name is Lindsey and I eat ALL day and I’ve lost 21lbs in 5 weeks…” I mean… it may sound silly or Funny but it’s the TRUTH. The crazy, REAL truth! I can NOT wait for my 60 day transformation picture.
Life in general has been sooooo busy lately. My facebook, cell phone, email – every method of contacting me is BLOWING UP. People are asking me, “ok, what are you doing?” or “why are you shrinking” or “I want to do this with you”…. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I love love love love love it. Do you guys know that RIGHT NOW (as of today), 17 people are doing this challenge with me! 17!! That’s a LOT of people. ANDDDDDD – each and every person on this challenge with me is generating RESULTS.
So… I kinda really have something that I want to share with everyone – but it’s putting a LOT out there. I am going to wait until next week – but my goal for week 5 was to lose 6.5lbs in the week. I lost 5.5lbs – which is AMAZING. Next week. OMG. I am going to flip a LID. Next week is going to be a MONUMENTAL WEEK for me. Like. A milestone. A huge, gigundous, GINORMOUS week!!! Next week, I’ll tell you my secret.
We are continuing to have 90-day challenge parties in Noblesville on Monday nights at 7:30pm. Those are CONTINUING to be a GREAT hit and people are LOVING them!
I have to give some credit right now to my B.F.F in life (Alicia) for sending me this inspiration last week:
I have been climbing my stairs for the last 5 weeks. I’m not going to tell you that it’s been an escalator ride up because it hasn’t… and I have millions of more stairs to climb – BUT – what I do know is that I AM DOING THIS – ONE DAY AT A TIME – ONE MEAL AT A TIME – ONE SNACK AT A TIME – and I have made the commitment to MYSELF and to my FAMILY, my FRIENDS and my CO-WORKERS and Gosh Darnit – it will be THE LAST thing I do to let ANY of them down.
The title of today’s blog is: SUCCESS. SUCCESS leaves clues. There’s a STAIRWAY out there for EVERY SINGLE PERSON – you just have to make the decision if you are READY TO CLIMB. AND – when you ARE – I will be there – hand out – waiting to have you JOIN me.
Until Next Thursday….
A 21lb less Lindsey
