Biggest Loser - End of Week 5

This week was much better than last for me!! I worked hard and it paid off. I had a loss of 3 lbs. this week! Woohoo!! So, here are the official numbers -

Me - 159 (loss of 3 lbs this week and total of 11!!)
Jess - 152 (loss of 1 lbs this week and total of 8!!)

It feels very good to have crossed the 10 lbs. mark!

If this is your first time reading the Biggest Loser, check out the previous weeks here, here, here, here and here.

Here is what I did last week:
Started to really count calories (not just guessing) and stayed under 1500 every day.
Most days I ate 6 smalls meals.
I did cardio 2 days
I did weight training 3 days

Here is what I plan to do differently this week:
Do cardio 3 days and weight training 3 days (I keep doing 5 instead of 6 days)
Drink only water and more of it. I have been drinking mostly water with the occasional diet soda and sweet tea. I also have not been anywhere close to 8 glasses of water a day.

Great weight loss! I recently lost 20 pounds by completing this Bible study program. I was 150 in December and the Lord rewarded me with 20 pounds off! Actually a tad more as I am 128 right now.

I've been following Weight Watchers for about two months and have dropped about thirteen pounds. I feel much better but the past few weeks, I've slacked off. I've found it easy to drop and because of that, I'm getting into a lazy mentality. I hope to jump back on the wagon tomorrow since I only have about 8 lbs. more to lose. It's really cool when you hit that 10lb loss mark though! I remember that and I was so happy!
