Weigh Day - Week 12

Well, there's really no weigh-in this week, so the title of this post is a little misleading.  I tried to weigh in this morning and realized my scale has gone completely crazy.  When I weighed last week and had a gain, I was pretty surprised, but didn't really think anything of it.  Then this week, I knew I would have a loss.  I did so good with food, and my clothes are getting super loose. 

I stepped on the scale and saw...298!  What?!  Okay.  That's about a 30-pound gain this week.  Hmm.  Maybe I should try this again.

I stepped back on the scale and saw...254.  Now you're talking!  A 13-pound loss this week!  Even though it would be amazing to be 254, I knew that couldn't be right either.

I tried one more time and saw...307.  Okay.  That's not even funny.  This scale has gone insane!  I have absolutely no idea what happened to the scale, but it definitely is done dealing.

So I'm going to have to get a new scale sometime this week.  I'll have a new scale and a real weigh-in for you guys next week. 


Weigh Day - Week 11

I took this week off and had myself a little staycation!  It was great, but it went WAY too fast.  I worked on my house all week.  I am so sore and feel like I've been doing squats all week.  Home improvement is hard work.  I haven't really paid attention to food this week, but I know I made good choices.  In fact, I was so busy I didn't even think about eating much.  I was really excited to step on the scale this morning because I was sure that with eating healthy and moving constantly all week while working on the house, I would have lost a couple of pounds.  I was shocked when I GAINED a pound!  I can't figure this scale out.  I work hard and gain a pound.  I sit around being lazy all week and lose 2 pounds.  Ugh!  It's frustrating.  I'm still on a downward trend, so I know what I'm doing is working.  I'll just have to keep on keeping on!

I've noticed some of my blogging buddies have gone MIA this week, so I hope everyone is still on track.  Here's to a successful week this week and hopefully a loss on the scale next Sunday!!

Starting Weight: 294.0
Week 10 Weight: 267.4
Week 11 Weight: 268.2

Gain This Week: 0.8 pounds

Weigh Day - Week 10

Oh, man.  What a rough, rough week!  I have been working from the time I get up to the time I go to sleep...all...week...long.  I am bone tired right now.  Daylight Savings Time isn't really helping my situation either.  I even have to work all day today!  The good news is, I decided to take next week off, so once I get through this job today, I will have a whole week of not thinking about work at all.  Yay!!

I realize I've kind of turned into a once-a-week updater instead of a blogger.  I will get better at this.  I love the support and community I get from this blog, and I love following all your journeys to get healthy.  Even if I haven't been commenting on your blogs, I have still been reading them!

I get my cast off on Monday, and I absolutely cannot wait.  I can start swimming again next week!  I am so ready to start burning some calories again.  I am only 2 pounds away from my lowest weight in a looooong time and I want to get there soon, so I need to burn me lots of calories.  :)

Starting Weight: 294.0
Week 9 Weight: 269.6
Week 10 Weight: 267.4

Loss This Week: 2.2 pounds!
Total Weight Loss: 26.6 pounds

Wow, I can't believe I'm getting close to 30 pounds lost!  I'm really hoping for 264 something next week.  I haven't seen that number since my niece was born, and she'll be 7 in a couple of months.  Yikes!


Weigh Day - Week 9

So I'm kind of irritated about the weigh-in today.  I did SO good this week.  Of course, I still can't do anything on my ankle, so I pretty much sat around like a bump on a log all week.  But...my food was great.  I expected to see at least a pound loss, if not more.  But once again, I was foiled by my nemesis...the scale! 

What makes it even worse is yesterday, I did a little sneak preview on the scale and saw 267, which would have been almost a 3 pound loss from last week.  I didn't even eat anything bad yesterday, definitely nothing to warrant a couple of pounds.  But as we all know, the scale can play tricks with us and it never tells the whole story.

In other news, only 10 more days in a cast!  I still have to take it easy for another four weeks after I get my cast off, but I can start swimming again.  The weather has been so nice outside lately and I absolutely cannot wait to get out there and start burning some calories!

Week 8 Weight: 269.8
Week 9 Weight: 269.6

Loss This Week: 0.2 pounds  (Lame!!)
Total Weight Loss: 24.4 pounds

I have to say, even though I didn't get a huge loss this week, I am feeling amazing.  Usually this is the time of year when I look at how far I have to go and just end up giving up and going back to my old ways. 

I know that isn't going to happen this time. 

I don't know what it is about this time, but this is my time.  I know it.  I feel it.  I am past the point where I am having cravings all day and fighting the urge to binge eat all the time.  I have been actually craving carrots all week for some reason.  Weird, right? 

I'm also eating things I never in a million years thought I would eat...and actually liking them.  I have a new love and his name is Brussels sprouts.  I can't get enough of them! 

I'm definitely taking steps in a new direction, and I like what I see ahead of me.
