Shrink for Good – The Shrinking Jeans of Thea


October 21, 2009 By thea

I’m up. Very up. I don’t even want to calculate how up I am. 159 lbs. Again. Blech.

So, let’s focus on what I did do (5k, 30 Day EAS Active Challenge) instead of what I didn’t do (LOSE WEIGHT), shall we?

That’s a 25 lb donation for each of those accomplishments. I didn’t have 50 lbs of food in the house so I invite you to visualize.

Thank goodness for photo editing, ya’ll.

I’m not entirely sure how it happened, considering all the sins I confessed on Monday, but I am down another pound this week!  This puts me at 156, just 3 pounds to go until my goal!  I need to switch into high gear if I want to lose those last 3 in the next 4 weeks,though.

Another pound to the food bank!

EAS Challenge  – CHECK!

5k Training – CHECK!

Good Choices – except for the weekend when I totally went insane when my sister-in-law made spice cake with cream cheese icing CHECK!

Result – DOWN 1 POUND!

Hell yeah.

I totally forgot that I was supposed to weigh in this morning for the new challenge.

So, after 2 meals I weighed in at…156.6!  Exactly where I was on Wednesday, so that’s pretty cool.


Oh, yes.  I will.

To get to 153 by the end of the Shrink for Good Challenge (Oct. 17), I need to lose .5 lb a week.  Considering the great cause that will benefit, the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge that starts tomorrow, and the 5k I have coming up, that should be totally, TOTALLY doable.

And Christy put an interesting goal out there for herself.  If she reaches her goal of 10 lbs. lost, she will donate 100 lbs. of food to her local food bank.

Not one to be outdone, I came up with my own goal(s):

  1. If I achieve my goal of finishing my 5k in 35 minutes or less, I will donate 25 lbs of food.
  2. If I stick with the 30 day challenge for the whole 30 days, I will donate 25 lbs of food.
  3. If I weigh in 3.6 lbs lighter on October 17th, I will donate 50 lbs. of food.

So there’s another 100 pounds of food going to the food bank, as long as I can do a little thing like eat less and exercise.
