Hello July!!

It is the beginning of July 2015. This blog was originally so that I could document my weight loss journey. I have not really mentioned that recently since I have been focusing on the Blog Challenge. So I thought that I should get back to it.

I weighed myself this morning, I did not like my scale. I celebrated this weekend when the scale said 229.5lbs. Today, it said 230.7lbs. That does not make me happy. I think I have been a little too free with the food lately. Also, the laziness. I have not exercised in over a week. I need to get back to it. I got a new exercise DVD in the mail yesterday. I am so excited. I ordered Richard Simmons “Sweatin to the Oldies”. I used to watch this when I was younger and I loved it, so I figured since it is 1000 degrees outside and I HATE the treadmill, I would work out to good old Richard Simmons. I will let you know how it goes.

I have mentioned a couple times that I am starting a No Spend Challenge in July. So today’s the day. No extraneous spending and keeping track of every cent that hubby and I do spend. I think that this will also help with the weight loss as we are not going to be able to go out to eat as much, the last two weekends have been ridiculous. Two weeks ago, one day of NO diet food! Then this weekend, sushi and Mexican food. Yup, need to get back on the plan…

I am hoping that July goes as planned. No extra food, no extra spending, lose lots of weight, save lots of money!


  1. Good luck with your weight loss journey. I know from personal experience that it can be a challenge to maintain progress, so good for you for keeping it up. I bet the no extraneous spending challenge will help a lot!

  2. I have lost a bunch of weight before and gained it all back. That will not happen this time. Thank you!

  3. Good luck you your no spend July! I attempted a no spend month... it was a LOT harder than I anticipated!

  4. I know it is going to be really hard, on the weekends all we do is go shopping! Thanks for the positive thoughts!!!

  5. Good luck on your journey! I decided to stay away fro the scale a long time ago as I worked on my weight. It's unfair because it doesn't account for water retention, inches lost, hormonal changes ect...I know my clothes were fitting better, then I would jump in the scale to see only 3 pounds lost!! No way. Lol best wishes to you. <3

  6. I was one of those people who weighed every morning, I stopped doing that in the last couple of weeks because the fluctuations would make me so mad! Thanks!

  7. Good luck with the weight loss!! I really need to have a no spend week as well - we moved house recent, and it feels like I have just been spending way too much since!

    1. I understand that!! We have moved several times in the recent years, and it always seems that we have to buy all new (whatever, fill in the blank) for the new house!!!
