Welcome to the House of Hills Losing It! ladies. I am so excited to continue hosting the “Losing It! And not just my sanity” community. What began as a weight loss challenge hosted by Mary of Giving Up On Perfect, Jessie from Vanderbilt Wife, and Ashleigh from Heart & Home became an amazing community of women working together towards a common goal. It’s my weekly Friday treat to check in with everyone. I really have come to love these ladies. It’s awesome to have a community of friends who understands how exciting it is to be out of clothes with a W in the size!
So, I begged and pleaded asked Mary if I could continue to host Losing It! over here on my site. She checked with the others, and they all heartily agreed. THANKS LADIES!! I am excited to continue to fun!
What is Losing It! you ask? Basically, we’re trying to lose weight, but not just to look better (although that is a nice side effect), but to be healthier – for ourselves and for our families. We’ve set goals for eating better and exercising and are trying very hard keep to them. Every week, we check in by posting an update on our blogs and then linking up together. Now, we’ll link up on this here blog.
Haven’t participated yet but want to? Great! We’d love to have you . The first step is to set you goals. Then, let us know each week how you’re doing. What are your challenges? What are your successes? Let us rejoice with you and cheer you on!!
If you don’t have a blog, but still want to participate, just leave a comment on each week’s update post. We can cheer for you in the comments section.
I’m still doing pretty well with my original goals. I lost a total of 18 pounds in the first ten weeks. I managed to NOT gain during the crazy two weeks of conferences. That was HUGE HUGE HUGE!! However, I’m starting to slack off. Thus, I’m setting some new goals for myself.
My NEW goals:
Drink ONLY water – I’ve been cheating a bit lately. I’ve had some tea (and not all unsweet), and I need to get back on track there.
Exercise at least three times a week – I was doing this, but conference craziness came and I slacked.
Record what I eat – I’ve slacked here too and need to get back on track. I do SO much better about watching what I eat when I record everything that goes in my mouth.
So how is everyone doing this week?
