Weigh-In Wednesday: 6/29/11

Highest Weight:  310.0
Last Weigh-in:    247.4
This Weigh-in:   242.2

Weight lost this week:  5.2
Total Weight lost:       67.8


Actually, I do believe it.  I worked hard this week.  Like, I kicked my butt.  I had some form of exercise 6 out of the past 7 days.  Be it working out an hour at the gym on the stationary bike, spinning bike, elliptical, stairmaster or the new love of my life, the rowing machine or walking the two and a half miles home from work...  I have moved my butt a lot. 

Also, my eating has been almost completely on point.  I have kept relatively close to my calorie goal every day and I've been eating back about 100-200 calories from what I've burned to ensure that my body isn't thinking that I'm starving it.  So, I've been at about 1500-1600 total calories eaten per day.  Not too shabby!

It probably doesn't hurt that some of this is probably water weight lost after a certain awful week of the month.  But, doesn't matter!  That weight counts too!

The thing I'm happiest about is that my enthusiasm is back.  I've been feeling like I did when I first started this project.  I'm counting calories, I'm wanting to move and sweat.  I haven't wanted to do any of this for a while.  I think it was going to the Do Life 5K last week.  Seeing all of these wonderful people with all of their amazing stories inspired me to continue my own.

Now I will say that I expect to either plateau next week, or to see a small loss.  My body is going to have to adjust to this big loss and I'm okay with that.  I'm expecting it.  It happened back in the fall/winter too.  Of course, I don't know if I saw losses this big...  But if I don't lose anything next week, I'll be ok.  But how awesome would it be to be out of the 240s next week?  I would be ECSTATIC!!

Hope you all have a great week!!


  1. Wow..your doing awesome! Back when I was losing weight and working out hard i would lose a 3-5 lbs about once a month ( or every three weeks), thats how my body dropped weight I guess, so pls don't let a slow week discourage you. Congrats on your weight loss so far...very inspiring :)

  2. Congrats on the loss!!! I love those weeks when you feel a big push to get back on track in a big way, and the results reflect all your hard work! Great job!!! ♥

  3. Congrats!! so how was the rowing machine?

  4. The rowing machine is great! It's a full body workout, and because you are moving back and forth you get a little breeze so you aren't drenched. I needed an arm workout and this definitely fits the bill! Just don't eat fajitas before going on it... Not fun.

  5. Amazing woman! I'm really proud of you!!
