I Jiggle, but not as much as I use to…Week 4

It’s that day of the week… I’m linking up with Lindsey at Mr. and Mrs. Smith for the weight loss challenge.
Weight Loss Challenge

It’s a great group that helps encourage each other on one of the hardest roads to undertake. Weight loss and fitness are essential to a healthy lifestyle and I am a strong believe that strong and encouraging support groups are the key to staying on track and meeting goals.

These were my initial stats:

I am 5’7’’

I weigh somewhere around 146 pounds during week 1

I’d like to be at about a 125-130

My goal is to lose about 15 to 20 pounds

Last week I was at 140.0 even, today I weighed in at 141.5, while this is a 1.5 pound gain, I am not too worried about it since I’ve been doing a lot of strength training. I still fit into my jeans, and have noticed changes on both my legs and abs.

I’ve been hearing a lot of “I’m not losing weight, but gaining even though I’m working out every day” from my gym buddy and several other friends so I’d like to remind everyone that being fit and healthy includes gaining muscle which just happens to weight 3 to 10 times more than fat!!!! Yup, you heard right, and this is why I advocate keeping track of your weight loss by a pair of jeans. It is the best way to insure that you are becoming healthier rather then just losing fat.

I’ve been a bit of a slacker in the gym department these past few days due to my knee, but I’m still eating better and trying to keep track of my calories.

Hope y’all have a great Thursday and a fantastic weekend!


  1. Congrats! I think it is amazing that you are commiting to working out and getting super fit! Can't wait to keep up with your progress! :)

  2. YAY!!!!!!!!! You go girl, the muscle training is definitely tricky. I think im going through the same thing. Its scary at first until your think about it then it makes sense jejeje! Your doing awesome though :)

  3. Thanks for staying positive and keeping us in line, girl! :)

  4. This is cool! Best of luck :D. I love the slogan.

  5. You're awesome. You're so reasonable and make sense of it all! I love that you gained 1.5 and keep it in perspective. I didn't believe what an effect it had until I saw that I literally see a jump by a couple pounds when I start doing strength training. It's really crazy. Keep it up!

  6. I tell people that all the time too. Even though the scale may be going up... if you are fitting into things you're doing great. I measure myself every day plus weigh.

  7. good luck! i'm about 5'7''/5'8'' and weigh about 138 but i'd like to get back to 130. i gained weight b/c i stopped running. my family thinks i'm crazy that i want to lose a few lbs.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Leave comments, questions or suggestions! They make me smile!
