McFatty…er McHottie Pants…Monday

Last week a few of you expressed concern that by calling myself a McFatty, I was being too down on myself.  I will have to direct you to the lovely Heir to Blair for the name of this lovely meme.  It is her creation.  I don’t really think of it as CALLINNG myself a McFatty necessarily, but talking about McFatty-ish issues.

That being said, I have lost another pound!  Woot!  I am now at 195 which is ELEVEN pounds down from the beginning of the year when I was 206 (ouch, holiday food.  just ouch).  That means I have lost 5.34% of my body weight.  Yay!

I have to say I am a bit surprised.

This week we had two snow days, which for me equals sitting around eating cheese balls all day.  We also had Taco Bell one night (yes, I know…not real meat.  I can’t help it, it’s yummy fake meat).

And the biggest cause of bloat?  It’s Lady Week here in Sluiter Nation.

But I still managed to be down a pound.

Besides the cheese balls and taco bell, I have been drinking WAY more water and been WAY better about my portion size.  So even though there was junk in the week, it was controlled junk.  Which is a step, right?  RIGHT?

I’ve also done a couple sit-ups this week.  Just a couple.  To remind myself how much I hate sit-ups.  I don’t think those helped the weight-loss…they just reminded me of how out of shape I am.

I am getting excited about exercise though!  I talked with my aunt this weekend about a gym Cort and I have been talking about joining.  It’s only $30 for one person and then $15 more for an extra member of the family.  So for $45 a month BOTH of us would have access to some great, clean equipment and a pool and classes (for just a bit extra) at a location that is only about an 8 minute drive away.

This is now on my wish list for this spring…a gym membership!

So there you go.  This week I will continue to try to make good choices with my portion control and my meal-planning, and continue my quest to be the McHottie that I know I am!

Wish me luck!

  1. Woot! Good for you friend! I hope our twin-ness provides me with this same kind of help in the morning, though I do not think I will be so lucky!

    Yay for another pound down!

  2. Good job lady! I actually on Saturday started doing Babe Shredders (@stayathomebabe) created a group on Facebook with the Jillian Michaels Shred video. It’s 20 minutes and a pretty decent workout. My legs & arms have been jello all weekend! Just a suggestion for something cheap & easy to do at home before that gym membership. Keep up the good work 😉 Oh, and I think the McFatty is endearing & funny – but then again I always get by on always making fun of myself. Here’s to a good week for you!

  3. Yay Katie!

  4. Congrats! You’re doing great

  5. Good job!!!!

    Dude. 11 pounds? You are rocking it.

    & I know that you know McFatty is total tongue-in-cheek, as is 90% of my drivel on the blog 😉

    • I totally know that McFatty just a cute saying. Totally. And yes, 11 pounds. I think some was bloat, but I will TAKE IT! 🙂

  6. That’s awesome! I second the Shred suggestion. Seriously – 20 minutes! And it’s work! You will sweat your face off – or at least I do. Great way to get a bit of exercise in. (But then again, a gym membership has never worked for me.)

  7. Yay! 11 pounds rocks! We are all twinnish with our weights. I’ve been struggling to find something that works for me for a while now. And the non-meat of Taco Bell? Tough to resist.

    Congrats! 🙂

  8. I belong to a great gym, with FREE child care included in my membership. The problem is now that I’m back to work I am too exhausted at night to go and can’t figure out how to get there in the morning since it’s a little bit of a struggle to balance getting the kids out the door and a shiftworking husband (all three kids go to 3 different places). Then there’s the weekends, where I feel guilty dropping my kids off at a gym play room when I haven’t seen them all week.

    So there I am full of excuses and truly deserving of the McFatty title!
