Weigh-In Sunday

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 305.4 lbs.
This week:  302.4 lbs.
Change: -3.0 lbs. lbs.
Total Change: -24.6 lbs.

Getting there… I’ll probably do a post reflecting on the progress so far, but I just wanted to note that I’m roughly a quarter of the way through the year and a quarter of the way towards my goal.  It’s sometimes hard for me to see that when I feel like I’m stuck in the 300s, but I’m on track so far!  And really, whether I’m on track or not, what matters is reaching my goal.  Not how long I take to reach it.

Post Spring Break Weigh-In

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 304.0 lbs.
This week:  305.4 lbs.
Change: +1.4 lbs. lbs.
Total Change: -21.6 lbs.

The moral of the story is don’t assume a certain outcome and prime your data for that outcome.  Just do what you do!

So, had I just stuck to my regular weigh-ins I would have had 307 the previous weigh-in and 303.8 yesterday (what I weighed after my long drive back home).  I decided last night that since it was my last day of Spring Break I could indulge a little, so I did.  I ordered pizza.  It had been awhile, and boy was it good.  And it didn’t hurt me too much in the count, so no problem.  I was going to count any weigh-in under 307 as a success for my Spring Break of indulgences, so in that sense it was a success.

It was a success on many different levels.  I ate out a few times and ordered salads (that I enjoyed!) which is new for me.  FYI, Skirt Steak Salad is quite tasty.  I’m not sure how healthy it is with the steak, but boy is it good.  I was also able to walk pretty much every day on a route that was very similar in distance to my regular route here.  That’s good because I’ll be living with my parents this summer while I work an internship down there, so it’s good to know that I can easily maintain my walking when I’m there this summer.

Spring Break Weigh-In

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 307.2 lbs.
This week:  304.0 lbs.
Change: -3.2 lbs.
Total Change: -23.0 lbs.

Doing good!  I’m weighing in early because Spring Break starts today.  I’m on the road all day today, and I’m not sure what my exercising options will be away from home.  I had a good weigh-in this morning, so I figured to protect that I would just publish my weigh-in early!

Weigh-In: Back on track

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 309.6 lbs.
This week:  307.2 lbs.
Change: -2.4 lbs.
Total Change: -19.8 lbs.

It’s good to be back on the weight loss train.  One of the things I’ve been looking forward to about losing weight is being able to fit comfortably into my old clothes that I’ve saved over the years “for when they’ll fit again…”  Some of it’s been waiting for so long it’s probably out of style!  I’m not quire there yet, but almost.

Last week I noticed that my belt was no longer doing it’s job of keeping my pants up, so yesterday I dug into my closet to get an older belt out.  I was feeling pretty good about myself, and then I tried to put the older belt on.  It didn’t come close to fitting.  Oops!  Went a little too far back, so I dug around and found one that fit.  Still, that’s progress.

Miserable Weigh-In Sunday

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 308.6 lbs.
This week: 309.6 lbs.
Change: +1.0 lbs.
Total Change: -17.4 lbs.

To say that I’m frustrated beyond belief would be an understatement.  I will be kicking my ass into shape all through next week.

Weigh-In Sunday

Start: 327 lbs.
Last week: 308.0 lbs.
This week: 308.6 lbs.
Change: +0.6 lbs.
Total Change: -18.4 lbs.

I suffered a setback this week.  That is bound to happen (I was hoping for later rather than sooner though), so there’s really nothing to do but forget about it and move on to next week.  I was prepared for this.  I had pizza and way too much fast food this week.  I also didn’t get out walking this week as much.  Mostly due to the weather, but my own laziness was a contributing factor.  I just need to hunker down and make sure I walk everyday and avoid eating fast food.

I’m also keeping track of my weight with Weightwatchers Online, which is interesting because it has all my past data saved from previous Weightwatchers attempts.  For instance, I did Weightwatchers last year during the month of April, and I was 317.2 lbs. for my last weigh-in April 25th, 2010.  It puts my weight loss in perspective when I realized that I am already almost 10 lbs. lighter than I was a year ago.
