Almost a pound a day! - Week 5

6.8 lbs gone - 27.8 lbs total!

I was really hungry this week. I think it was related to my time of the month. I looked for bulky foods and I'll admit to eating a few more pickles than I'm supposed to. I made it through and am thinking about ways to prepare myself better next month. Good news... my face didn't break out as bad as it usually does.

I'm stoked that I had such a nice loss this week. It is encouraging to see results. I have noticed that my energy level is higher and that bending over and getting things off the ground is easier. I tried on a sweatshirt top that was too small. I can wear it now, even though I think it will look better when I lose a few more pounds.

My discovery of the week: vanilla pudding made with 1/2 cup iced decaf espresso... it's like tiramisu in a cup.

average weekly weight loss: 5.5 lbs

Pray for me.


  1. Go Robin!!! That is awesome! You encourage me!

  2. Yay! I am so stoked you are being diligent in this journey! You inspire me:)

  3. Amazing! Continued prayers!
    Phillipians 4:13 is always an inspiration to me.

  4. Robin, I just found your "Less Robin" blog postings...I am sitting here in tears, thanking God for your honesty...and for your victory! I have the same battle and got to that point about a month ago where I realized I needed to make some serious changes in my life too.

    Please know that my prayers are with you, and remember, the battle belongs to the Lord!


    P.S. I learned about "Hungry Girl" and have been making a lot of her recipes. She takes high calorie foods from restaurants, fast food places, etc. and remakes them into healthier, lower calorie/fat foods (and includes weight watcher points). She also gives great tips on low-cal/fat items to buy at the grocery store, etc. Anyway, her site is at if you want to check it out.
