Weight Loss Week Seventeen ~ Rachel

Despite a bachelorette weekend (for my step-sister who’s getting married in July) and a Mother’s Day lunch on Sunday at a very nice (aka, not terribly healthy) Italian restaurant, I managed to make up for last week’s weight gain by losing 2.6lbs for a grand total, so far, of 35lbs gone forever.

I have a theory that my weight loss will slow down a bit as I begin exercising…hopefully my body will figure out what I’m doing and allow the fat to melt off! I didn’t make it to the gym too much last week because of being out of town and also because I wasn’t feeling so hot a couple of days. We’ll see what happens this week.

A while ago I mentioned the purging of our closet. I took a picture of the pile but kept forgetting to post it. The pile includes clothes from both Dave and I…and we’ve been adding to it weekly. I keep finding more clothes that don’t fit when I put them on! I’ll be bagging everything up soon and donating everything to Cause for Paws, a local thrift store that supports animal rescue groups in the area. I guess we’ll just a start a new pile once that one’s gone 🙂

    Great job with your weight loss – you are really shrinking, Rachel! And wow, what a lot of clothes that don’t fit…very cool, and also sweet of you to donate them for the animal shelter’s benefit.

    That’s been me over the last few months, but finding smaller clothes I can fit into again!

    I was (and still am) the queen of consignment shops. That is a great way to not spend a lot when you need to keep going down in size without dropping a lot of cash.
