OWiS #32 A new Catergory…

7 08 2010

This may very well be one of the most awesome filled weeks of my life. On top of my regular sessions with the Godfather I got an extra one on Friday. My girlfriend Peppermint Patty arrived. I got to run a terrific 4 miles with Godfather and two other women from the gym and had a fantastic time of 41 minutes (10:25 pace) and of those 4 miles I ran 2 of them completely barefoot. I’m about to leave the house to go and experience my first open water swim clinic as I prepare for the Trek Triathlon and to end the weekend I’m finally going to meet Val and Jord and watch some Blue Angels and if you know me well then you know that I LOVE THE BLUE ANGELS!

What more could a girl want from such an excellent week?

How about a kick ass OWiS this week? I’m down -5.2 pounds!! A week ago Tuesday Godfather instructed me to stay away from starch for two weeks (this is day 11). As of today I’ve lost almost 9 pounds since the no starch rule and  cutting out the four basic food groups (Pasta, Rice, Bread, Potatoes). They are the four basic food groups right?

I’m entering a new catergory on this blog: 180 – 189.

I am also 18 pounds from my first goal weight of 170!

Wooooohhoooo! Congratulations on sticking with the Godfather’s no-starch challenge! I’m excited to learn more about the next eating challenge he gives you. You are KILLING this weight loss thing, and even more importantly, you are CHANGING YOUR LIFE – it’s so fun to watch, T!

Tara, that is so awesome! I’m still struggling in the 190’s. Going on vacation didn’t help either. I weighed myself and I was 197 this morning. So, I am maintaining but just wanna be in the 180’s soon. Way to go, and keep kicking ass!

I am so impressed! I have struggled to get my first five pounds off so it’s nice to know that it is possible. Good work!

You are so amazing! I’m hoping I see a difference on the scale come Wednesday morning… Or it’s going to take a big jump in the wrong direction when I console myself will all things starch. You are my superstar. 🙂

That’s awesome Tara, great work! Maybe I need to try the whole no-starch thing for a week or two myself, I could definitely use a little kick in the pants!

Have a great time at the Blue Angels today, I know it will be a blast!
