Week Nine...Re-set Button

Welcome to the Ninth (completed) week of Extreme Makeover: ME Edition hosted by the incredible Amber Filkins!

Let's weigh-in...

Last week: 210 pounds
This week: 207 pounds

LOST..... 3 pounds

YAY! I also lost a total of 3 inches from my waist, hips, torso and thighs.

The Plan from Last Week:

Last friday, I ditched my plan and decided to take some drastic measures. Because it was a three day weekend, I thought it would be a great time to do a juice fast/colon cleanse. You can read all of the details HERE and the update HERE. The bottom line is that I'm so glad that I did it. I feel like I pushed a reset button on my body because I'm not craving soda or sugar anymore. Now, I have to work on this uncontrollable urge to put food in my mouth...even when I'm not hungry. I need to buy some more gum to keep my mouth busy.

  3. WOW!! Way to go Connie!!! That's awesome. You did great girl!! Look at you doing a cleanse on a holiday weekend. I indulged and I think I may have gained a little.

  4. 3 pounds AND 3 inches!? That's great! I was too tired last night to post EM:ME, but I'm going to do it this morning.

  5. YEAH CONNIE!!!! I am SO proud of you :-) Keep plugging away and watch the pounds fall off. Matt showed me an article about fasting this morning that I need to read - maybe I'll give that a shot soon.

  6. Congrats on three pounds and three inches! That's fabulous!

    I was intrigued to read about your juice fast/colon cleanse ~ I've been considering doing a fruit and veggie cleanse this weekend, and just may have to try it after hearing about your awesome results!

    Good luck with your goals this week ~ you can do it!

  7. Great job - 3 lbs. and 3 inches - Super!

    Unlike most of the rest of us who took the Holiday weekend OFF from dieting, you did something constructive - it's great when you can push the reset button isn't it?
