This picture might be a little misleading because my hallelujah doesn't have to do with money. It has to do with WEIGHT. I have been on a weight plateau for FIVE weeks. I haven't lost a single pound despite working out several times a week and continuing weight watchers (although I wasn't as good at getting online to track my points, but I still tried to keep track mentally). And last week I worked my butt of doing weights, cardio, and even working with a trainer--5 days of the week! (the exercise, not the trainer. I'm not that rich!) But still no weight loss. I was about to slit my wrists after last week's weigh-in. Then today...finally....I lost 1 1/2 lbs!!! I'm so excited that I finally broke this stupid plateau! I was worried that doing the weights and working with a trainer would make me gain weight. But I guess it's true that muscle burns fat because I have finally gained some muscle and am finally burning some fat. I'm sore on every inch of my body most days. But it's good. As the fat disappears, hopefully some tone will appear. Wouldn't that be novel?

I also want to give props to my hubbie who has lost 19 lbs (or 20?) so far. He looks AWESOME. And he's down a whole pant size. And since he never reads my blog, he has no way to know that I'm going to post his before and after pictures for the whole world to see when we're all done with this contest. Tee hee hee.

Yay! This was a good week for me as well. I also had my first loss in a month. I feel like I should go celebrate with a big piece of chocolate cake or something. Ha ha.

Y'all have a bunch more willpower than I do to get all that exercising in with everything else you have going on. What happened to the before and after pics of Big Daddy?

Tib's comments were so bland back then.
