I Lost 4.6 Pounds

Yeppers.  And I'm pretty darn happy.  Might even add one of them there tracking thingys on my side bar, and update it each time I go down.  Just as soon as I learn how to do that.

Meanwhile, dig my loot.  Thanks for Greg That Dude (check out his blog), I snagged all these drinks for free at Dollar General.  I'll use ALL of these for Thank you gifts to the ladies who give me stacks of coupons inserts. 

As for the Bayer and toothbrushes, those were from Wally's.  I used the overage from the toothbrushes, in combo with Bayer coupons.  They paid me 16 cents.  So I put that wee bit in my overage jar for use another time.

So what else?  Today and tomorrow I'm second shift preppie.  Then two days off.  One with Tim.  Not too shabby.  I'm so glad I requested this past weekend off because after so many years of working weekends, it was just nice to have a proper weekend together.

My Plan: Request one weekend off per month.

My Other Plan: Drop 14 pounds.

My Other Other Plan:  Be able to jog again.

Dollar General Promotion:
Buy 3 Country Times @$1 each.
Promotion removed $2 @register.
Coupon removed $1.

Total Paid: ZERO

Same deal with the Capri Suns.  
For Wally: I had 3/$7 Oral B coupons, and 1/$4 off 2 Bayers.
They paid me 16 cents to leave the store.

  1. Hey, those Oral-B toothbrush heads are cheap, either.
    Congratulations on the lost pounds. At first I didn't see the decimal and thought whoa!

    1. I know, right? They are crazy high in price. But thankfully, not for a couponer.

      Thanks, that's funny. 46 in one week would be a lot, that's for sure.

  2. Congrats on the weight loss. I'm not having luck in that department (I still eat too much apparently), but I am only on my third week of going to the gym. It feels good going back and I look forward to the results!

    1. I would not like being in a gym. But I do love my treadmill at home. Do you mind being at the gym?

    1. And I say that as one who is always struggling to drop a few pounds himself...

  9. Congrats Ivy! I'm proud of you. Nicely done.

    While I you are equally lovable at any size, if you feel better, that's what matters.

  10. Sure wish I knew why I can't get the REPLY button to work...but I can't.

    Anyway, to answer your question about the gym, I find I work out better there than at home. Less distractions! There are those who like to go and chat at the gym - I'm not one of them.

    1. Ohhh, I can see that. That makes sense about the distraction part.

      I will check my spam folder after I comment. Sometimes yours go in there.

    2. Just checked. No spam from you but one of Jen's was in there. I don't know why Blogger does that.

  11. Yayy! Hope it continues to go well.

  12. Weekends off are always good.

    Think swimming as a good exercise too.
