The bad news... I had my first gain for the 12 week Slimmer This Summer Challenge. Not a big gain, only .1 lb, but none the less, a gain that really easily could have been avoided. Last week I basked in a few pieces of wonderful pumpkin bread and didn’t track yesterday and ate more than I have in quite a while. We were visiting my in-laws and I decided to take a day off. I knew I would have some sort of gain.
The good news... We are half way through the challenge and I am down 8 lbs. I am not on track for loosing a total of 24lbs, but it is still possible if I kick butt and get back in gear! Also more good news below on my measurement report.
I am 4 pounds away from reaching my next reward: a pedicure. My feet need some summer pampering in a major way. I want this bad. My mother-in-law wants to go with me even, but if I don’t hurry up and lose the next 4lbs, she is going to go without me!

I got my five work outs of 45-60 minutes in, despite not really feeling well a good part of the week. I was moody, dizzy and really tired all week. I don’t know what is up. The kids were crazy too. Maybe we are all fighting a bug.
Did good on water, even exceeded my goal a couple of days with the summer heat getting to me.
Despite the gain, I am still shrinking. This week I lost ½ inch off my hips, belly and rib cage and a ¼ inch off my arms. Here are my total losses (lbs and inches) since the beginning of the challenge.
