Weigh in Wednesday 6/5/13 (A Day Late)

Last Week's Weight:                           228.3
This Week's Weight:                           231.3

Weight Gain:                                         3.0

Total Weight Lost:                               78.7

Total Weight left for DietBet:                 6.4

Like I suspected would happen, I gained weight while I was in San Francisco for the wedding.  It was actually right about what I assumed I would gain.  While it sucks, it's not unrealistic to gain weight when you are on vacation and out of your routine.  I ate fried foods.  I ate sweets.  I didn't exercise.  OF COURSE I was going to gain weight!

But, I'm not worried.  I'm just going to get immediately back on the band wagon and start being diligent.  I'm going to count my calories (and be a little more restrictive until I catch back up) and not eat crap.  I'm going to try and go for a run today (but the weather is kind of poop, so I will have to time this carefully.)  Tomorrow I'm going to try and sign up for bootcamp classes at the local CrossFit gym.

I have two weeks left (I miscalculated the dates last week...) left on this DietBet.  I know I will lose this gain quickly and catch up and then some.  My goal before I leave Lexington (around July 4th-ish, so about a month) is to be at 220.  I don't know if it will happen, but I hope so!  At least it's a good goal.  It's a hefty goal, but if I REALLY work hard, I can do it.

You know something that is a motivator for me?  The summer TV series "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition."  I know what they attain on that show isn't realistic, and that there is A LOT going on behind the scenes that I'm not aware of.  I also catch myself saying things to myself while watching it like: "That's actually REALLY bad for her to be running a marathon because she hasn't properly trained!" but I do find certain things about it very inspiring.  The determination of most of these people is astounding.  They are super obese people and they are achieving things that I sit on the couch and say "Wow, I don't think I could ever do that."  Well, the thing is, I COULD do those things!  I just need to get off the couch and DO IT!!

If you have hulu you can catch up on the first few episodes.  It's worth a watch to see if it inspires you like it does me.
