Starting Weight: 330 pounds
Weight Last Week: 304.6 pounds
This week’s weigh-in: 302.1 pounds
Oh glory, glory, praise the Lord, hallelujah! I swear, it’s like an emotional roller coaster every time I step on that scale (a whole other blog-post-worthy issue entirely). This morning was no exception as I ran the whole gamut of emotions.
On Wednesday, I snuck a peek at the scale and it was 302.5, so I was very excited for what my weigh-in might be. But I also knew that was no guarantee of what the scale would read come Sunday morning. Well, when I stepped on the scale this morning it read 307.1.
Yeah, that’s what I said too! I couldn’ believe it and I was so upset. I mean, I had basically gained five pounds in just a few days. I was so sad while I was putting my make-up on before church. Then, something in me just told me to step on the scale again (this was maybe 20 minutes later), so I tried again and it said 302.1. Always wanting to be accurate, I tried two more ties and it read 302.1 both times.
So I’m sticking with it! Finally, a good weigh-in! And I finally broke past that 304 mark that I have been stuck on. I sure hope this trend continues. I worked really hard this past week and I am not ashamed to say that I totally deserve that loss. Not one ounce comes easily for me, so I’m going to choose to claim it and be proud of it! The 200s are in sight baby!!!
I have to apologize to The Chick Magnet. I wrote so much about myself for my last weigh-in that my blog post got too long for me to give an update about him. Soooo…drum roll please…
Last week The Chick Magnet weighed in at 239. 6 and this week weighed in at 237. 2. He is only .2 pounds away from a total loss of 70 pounds!!! Unfortunately for him, he has to put up with my cooking when we go to visit him this next week, so he’ll probably see a bit of a gain over the next couple of weeks.
I also have to apologize to him for not doing my math correctly. In my monthly update post I said he had only lost 6.9 pounds last month, but it was actually 16.9. Sorry honey-you rock my world. You know that!
Some of my non-scale victories (NSV) this week include:
- Continuing to work on some emotional/mental barriers to weight-loss and it’s been eye opening to say the least. Yes, I will be sharing soon.
- I was VERY active this past week. While I will admit I did not set aside time for a structured workout, I did intentionally try to incorporate some active, everyday things into my week that I knew would burn some calories. I scrubbed all of my floors on my hands and knees, did lots of vacuuming, scrubbed bathtubs and baseboards with a toothbrush, raked leaves and moved lots of heavy stuff. Mainly I just tried to stay very active and had very little sedentary time this week. I know it contributed to my loss.
- I stayed well within my calorie goals, thanks in part to my sugar fast.
- I LOOOOVE that my clothes don’t fit me properly! What an awesome problem to have!
That’s the truth.
How was your weigh-in this week? Any new goals for next week?
What is your plan for the holidays? How do you plan to stay on track?
