Losing like a boss!

That’s right.  Losing Like a Boss.  That’s my new nickname.

I walked into that meeting tonight with a belly full of dinner convinced that my Father’s Day splurge and–confession time–the ravenous eating frenzy called Tuesday–were the ruin of my week.  I fully expected to have gained.

The nice lady behind the desk offered me some fruit, compliments of Penton’s Farm Market and I said, “No, thank you.  I just ate.”

She looked at me all cock-eyed and said, “You just ate and you’re down?”

Then I looked at her all cock-eyed and said, “Excuse me?  Did you just say I lost weight?”

Hells to the yeah, baby.  THAT is losing like a boss if I’ve ever heard it!

To what do I owe this magical weight loss?  I don’t know but I’m pinning my hopes and dreams to the exercise bike downstairs.  I began my exercise journey with a wimpy half a mile twice a day.  I am now up to a slightly less wimpy 1.6 miles twice a day with Tuesday this past week being my first 4 miles all in one day.

This weekend I plan on sending you my first Virtual Bike Adventure post celebrating my first few stops on my journey.  Like a human Garmin, I’m recalculating my distances to include my hubby in my journey.  He wanted me to take a ride to the steel plant where he works.  I told him I would but ONLY if he was nice to the Mini Mama and didn’t do bad things to her like melt her down into a beam or something.  I’d like to melt the pounds but not in a molten steel sort of way.

So keep your eyes peeled for the Mini Mama and, if you’re on a weight loss journey, keep your chin up.  If I can incorporate the “e” word into my life this late in the game there is hope for anyone!

  1. Yippee! I knew you’d do it! Keep it up–I mean down–you know what I mean. LOL Seriously, congrats, dear Sista. We’re cheering for you from here in Ecuador!

    • Thanks! I truly was shocked to find out I lost. After missing two meetings and eating like a pig I was pretty sure I had gained when I walked in there. I also earned my little silver running man medallion from WW for a six week commitment to exercise! Woot! I told Jim you said there was some cheap property in Ecuador we could buy. Talk about a cockeyed look!
