What a great WEEK!!!! Monday

Maybe being sick is my good luck charm?!?!!!! lol Well I wasn't very sick, just a head cold/sinus whatever junk. But something was going my way this week. Monday night on Mamavation TV I won a Gruve (and it arrived Friday how great!!)Then you all honored me by making me Sista of the Week which was truly a shock and an honor, you don't even know how great that made me feel. And then this morning I wake up and find this...

Yes that is a 2 pound weight loss this week!!! Last week my Wii photo was at 162 this week the TV and Wii were already occupied by my lovely children so I decided to use the other scale (that isn't always as kind as the Wii) so I was extra shocked to see that number. This also means I have passed my first mini goal of 10 lbs down (officially down 11 total and 3.5 since starting the Move It and Lose it challenge)

I have also started noticing my clothes are looser, which of course is a good thing. I was hoping to be down a pant size w/ 10 pounds gone but that hasn't happened YET. But I rechecked my measurements and here is what I found.
Measure 6/28 Measure 8/9
Waist 38.5 ---37.5
Chest 39 ---37.5
Hips 44 ---43
thigh R 26 ---25.5
Thigh L 26.5 ---26
Calf R 15.5 ---15
Calf L 15.5 ---15.25
Bicep R 13 ---12.5
Bicep L 12.5 ---13

Once again I am super excited about Mamavation TV, I can't wait to hear from @Pete_Cohen since I missed him the last time he was on. I am so proud of Lisa (@Ljenator) for being picked to be the NEW Mamavation Mom, she is my inspiration so much of the time. And I want to thank Lori (@gutimom) for sponsoring the Blogging carnival and Mamavation TV this week. Be sure to check out her Avon site.

And thank you all again for your love and support and for allowing me to the Sista of the Week. It has been such an honor! Thank you EA Sports Active for sponsoring the Mamavation Sista of the Week by giving each of us a copy of EASports Active More Workouts.

These are the reasons I do what I do (and our Fur baby who was missing her buddy last night because she spent the night at my mom's hehe)
