Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting Week 10


OK, so I did OK this week. I got to the gym some, I cleaned the house some, and I at mostly at home.

I found out that my TSH is down to 3.11, but doc is upping my dose slightly to bring it down more. I think this is why I'm actually able to lose some weight.

1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal. (BMI info from this website)

Starting weight: 145        
Last Week's Weight: 139
Current Weight: 137 (-8 lbs total, 12 lbs to goal)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 25.4
Current BMI: 25.1 (still "overweight", maybe I'll cross this threshold next week)
Goal BMI: 18.5-24.9 or exactly 22.9 for goal weight

2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals.

Progress on last week's activities:

1. Time my mile and run it at a pace of 5.2 miles an hour: did it, it's hard though
2. Continue with no soda for a week and see if I can also do no beer for a week: ummm...*crickets*...
3. Go to yoga class: I've gone 4-5 times now
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app: done
Activities for this coming week: (the more activities I attempt, the more I am likely to achieve)

1. Time my mile and run it at a pace of 5.2 miles an hour, I don't think I can speed this up yet
2. Continue with no soda for a week and see if I can also do no beer for a week, I can do this
3. Go to yoga class, this will be easy-peasy
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app, I like it and it seems to work

3. Post a (reasonably healthy) recipe that I've tried, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out for people to try, a photo update of my weight loss, or anything else I feel like sharing. 
I know I talked about My Fit.ness Pal last time, but I've found one more thing I love about it.

It allows me to not work out, if I don't have time or want to. What I mean is that it gives me a calorie goal so that I will lose about 1 pound a week. If I can't work out that day, I simply need to eat less than my calorie goal, if I am going to go over, then I know exactly how many calories I have to go burn at the gym that night. For example: if I have a huge lunch because my boss took me out and it was more than I planned to eat that day, and I then look at my calories left and I only have 300 left for dinner (which is not nearly enough) I know I need to go and burn like 200-300 calories so that I can eat a real meal for dinner. Unfortunately, I don't have a baby to distract me from the fact that I need to eat at regular intervals.
