Weigh In Wednesday: 10/9/13 - Movin' Right Along Edition

Last Week's Weight:                                   223.1
Current Week's Weight:                              222.0

This Week's Loss:                                          1.1

Total Weight Lost:                                         88.0

Yes, it's a loss but I must admit that I'm a little disappointed.  Over the weekend I got down to 220 and now I'm up a couple of pounds. I really need to remember that even though I'm weighing myself more frequently because of the Diet Bet the only ones that really count are these weekly ones.  I need to remember that weight can fluctuate greatly throughout the week and what it says on Saturday doesn't necessarily mean that it will read that same number, or lower, on Wednesday.

But... a loss is a loss.  The scale is overall moving in the right direction and I'm moving right along towards my goal.  This month for the Diet Bet I have to hit 215, so I got some catching up to do with regards to that, but even if I don't hit this month either I'll just be happy to get as close as I did this last month.

I will admit that I haven't been as careful with my eating the last couple of days.  I definitely overindulged with the salty goodness and one night have a ravenous hunger that just wouldn't be silenced.

My plan for the next two weeks in Boston is to try and be as good as possible, and I actually want to try and run a 10K on the treadmill.  I've been pretty consistently running 3 miles several times a week and I would like to get that 6 mile distance under my belt again.  After our Boston run we aren't in one place for longer than a few days for a while and I feel like this is the best place to try and go for it.  I don't know what the hotel gym situation is going to be like in some of these places and I need to try my hardest to make it work the best I can.  I have a feeling Jillian Michaels and I will be getting to know each other pretty well on some of these shorter hotel stays.  Maybe if I do a couple of her videos back to back in my hotel room I'll be okay.  Who knows though!  It's going to be trial by fire!

I just really want to get out of the 220s.  I've been here all summer long and it's time to bump down into the next bracket.  Gonna have to put my nose to the grindstone to do it I think, but I know that I can.

Alright, that's all from me for today!


  1. Hello - I just read your success story on Huffington Post - congrats! Good work! I have a question for you. You mentioned downloaded a program on your IPod that would tell you when to walk/run for the couch to 5km. Could you tell me the name of it? Much thanks and best wishes on your journey to continued good health!

    1. Hi Patti - thanks for reading my story and my blog! I used a Couch to 5K app on my iPhone. It was 99 cents. If you just search the app store it's the first one that pops up.
