Today is all about the numbers! First things first...

I weighed in 5.8 lbs less than last week... which means that stupid gain is gone, and that the scale is finally moving in the right direction!

I also have more than 300 followers on this blog! That is just unbelievable! Knowing that people are with me on this journey keeps me so accountable, and it also lets me know I am not alone on this journey. Thanks!

As I did before, I am allowing Monday (WI day) to be my "high-calorie" day. Not going overboard, but just allowing a few extra calories so I can fit in a treat or a meal I've been wanting. I had some Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken in the freezer, so today was the day! I'm ending the day at about 1700 calories and 128 ounces of water.

I hit the gym today for a little arm work and 30 minutes on the elliptical.

So there you go! As you can see, it's all about the numbers!


  1. 5.8 pounds is freaking amazing......amazing. Great are clearly doing the right things! Go Hollie, Go Hollie! Woooooooo!

  2. I am three weeks into my efforts, and am surprised at what a numbers game this really is! Great work...I've been following you for a few months now, and I enjoy your posts!

  3. Good for you! 5.8....I'll take it! Keep the good work up!

  4. WOW! 5.8 pounds! Congrats! (: P.S. I'm new to this & would like to let you know that your blog is the reason I decided to blog myself!

  5. Woohoo! Congratulations Hollie! 5.8 is an amazing loss.

  6. Way to go on the great lose Hollie.

  7. So happy to see that you are back on track. I read an article recently that said we should be eating about 1700 calories a day to lose weight and maintain the weight loss.
    Great for you with the big loss on the scale! I need one of those kinds of weigh-ins too!
