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.


  1. I love this post! It's SO difficult to get discouraged by a weigh-in...especially when you just KNOW that it should be a bigger number loss.

    You are definitely taking steps in a new and positive direction. Don't lose focus. Keep trudging on and on and, in no time, that number will have a 1 at the beginning of it and you'll feel like a billion dollars. :)

  2. Don't let the scale play tricks on you!!! You're feeling good about the work you've put in and the choices you've made, the big bad scale will catch up eventually!!!

    You're doing great, and THIS IS YOUR TIME!!
