Starting Weight: 330 pounds
Weight Last Week: 306.2 pounds
This week’s weigh-in: 304.2 pounds
Finally! Did you hear the sigh of relief I breathed this morning when I saw that number? Not like it’s any big milestone or anything, and I was hoping for more, but the fact that it is a loss after a gain two weeks in a row is great. I’ll take it.
The hard part is I have seen this number already. Two weeks ago. And I hate that. I am determined that once the pounds are gone then they’re gone, never to be seen or heard from again, so it is so frustrating to see the same number twice. I don’t want to be another statistic and this to be just another failed attempt at weight-loss. I want this time to be for keeps and it frustrates me to have not made much progress lately.
I usually only allow myself to weigh-in once a week. But because of my lack of progress over the last couple of weeks, and how hard I felt I was working this past week, I peeked on Wednesday. The scale read 304.2, the exact same as it did today.
I was really excited about that number on Wednesday, that I had lost 2 pounds in just a couple of days. I was hoping that was a good indication of how hard I was working and that I could finish out the week just as strong as I started it.
Today? Not so much.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the result I wanted, but I am not going to complain about a 2 pound loss. I fight for every pound and I choose to be proud of it. There are a lot of extenuating circumstances going on in my life right now, not excuses mind you, just stuff that is throwing a whole new wrench into my plans. So I’m still working out the kinks.
My husband on the other hand, apparently has had no trouble whatsoever adjusting to his new life in Florida. Get a load of this: 243.8!!! Do you remember what he weighed last week? Because I sure do!
252.8!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s right people, the Chick Magnet lost 9 whole pounds this week!!! Holy snikeys, I just don’t even know what to do with that.
Not only did he have a HUGE loss, he hit several major milestones: 1) He has now lost more than 60 pounds in not even 4 months-63.2 to be exact, 2) he is under the 250 mark, 3) because he passed the 250 mark, he has earned the first reward he set for himself-P90X.
Seriously, I can hardly wait until November 1 to show you his pictures. Apparently, he should be the one writing this blog and not me!!! Somebody needs to feed that boy!!! It turns out it was me and all my cooking all these years that did him in. Apparently, he is just fine without me.
Some of my non-scale victories (NSV) this week include:
- I have to say, I am working through the emotional/mental part of this journey behind the scenes. It has been incredibly hard and I have shed a lot of tears, but I think I am really gaining perspective and hopefully making steps toward being free of my emotional attachment to food. Yes, I do plan on sharing the stuff I have been working through. Just be patient with me.
- I didn’t cry for too long when the Chick Magnet texted me his new weight today. He’s almost lost 3 times as much as me people!!!
Yeah, that’s all I got.
That’s the truth.
How was your weigh-in this week? Any new goals for next week?
Are you as jealous of the Chick Magnet as I am?
