Down 14 pounds?

i've been getting alot comments on my weight lately. at the easter get together family who hadn't seen me in awhile were really rocked. at work too, one co-worker commented that every time she sees me i look thinner. i have upped the ante in the training dept. so no doubt it's starting to pay off, i just hadn't stepped on a scale for awhile. i'm still a little dubious though, i pulled out the scale at home, set the dial to zeroe and placed on it a brand new unopened 5 lb. bag of flour and it read 5 lbs. exactly, so i stepped on it myself and to my surprise: 143 lbs!!
does this mean i moving out of the athena household? it's still a high number for my 5 foot barely 3 inch frame ( though i am pretty muscular) and i know i should get on a real sliding scale at the gym, but for now i'll bask in this for awhile.

Losing weight is defintely one of the fun parts! Open water swimming freaks me out as well, but I feel a little more confident now that I've upped my endurance in the pool-we'll see how that goes when it's time to hit the lakes again...

I seem to go up about 5-7 pounds in the winter and then down again in summer. I think it's all the exercise and outdoor activities. Anyway, it does make me feel better when I'm at the lower weight. Good for you:)

Thanks for visiting me. Definitely one of the highlights of my experience is throwing away the old belts and discovering some abs--much to Mrs. Greyhound's approval. ;-)

If I keep my head on straight in the swim, hopefully I'll have something positive to post Saturday night about my first sprint.

We are about the same size, well we were until I gained 10 + pounds. You've just challenged me to get back where I need to be. I'm finding it difficult getting back to 143 for some reason. Blaming my age when I should be blaming my eating habits.
