7 Pounds

So as you may know, I've really been struggling with this cycle of losing a few pounds and immediately gaining them back.  On May 1st I, once again, made a recommitment to diet and exercise.  I lost 2.6 pounds by the 10th, then we left for Hawaii the next day.  My goal was to just not gain any while on vacation, as I knew to try to lose would be absolutely pointless.  For the most part I did really good, avoiding most of the junk that the in-laws brought into the condo, but I did have a burger on our snorkel trip and some ice cream on the way back from Hana.  Anyway, I reluctantly weighed myself the day after we got home and was shocked to discover that I had lost 2 pounds!  What?!??  That NEVER happens!  I usually can't even maintain my weight on vacation, let alone lose!  Then again, I did start out the trip kind of sick and didn't eat much the first few days (more on that here).

Then yesterday I weighed again and was down another 2.6 pounds!  In 6 days.  And I wasn't even all that good the first few of those days (I had baked a cake with some eggs I needed to use up and had french toast and bacon one morning, albeit only 1 piece of each).

So anyway, I'm down a total of 7.2 pounds since May 1st.  Whoo-hoo!  My current short-term goal is to lose 5.4 by June 30th.

Yay! Good for you! It's so nice to be suprised in a good way when you step on the scale. I'll let you know if that ever happens here. Ha! Keep up the good work.
