Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting Week 11


I was all over the place this week. While I constantly thought about what I ate and where it would put me on MFP (btw, my name is shesshells on MFP) I didn't do much to change what I was eating. I was also pretty bad about working out this week. I did go, but I was lazy in my know, watching TV instead of paying attention to my pace and whatnot. At least I managed to stay the same weight instead of gaining.

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: 137
Current Weight: 137 (-8 lbs total, 12 lbs to goal)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 25.1
Current BMI: 25.1 (still "overweight" dangit)
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: didn't run this week, just walked
2. Continue with no soda for a week and see if I can also do no beer for a week: too much beer and some soda, I'll do better next time, I promise!
3. Go to yoga class: I was ovulating this weekend, and in the off chance that I may actually get pregnant the natural way, I didn't want to mess it up
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
2. Continue with no soda for a week and see if I can also do no beer for a week
3. Go to yoga class
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app

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 am participating in a new thing through my yoga group where I pay to get fresh organic vegetables delivered. This will hopefully liven up my taste buds. However, I did notice some portabella mushrooms when I picked through the bag for a minute after it was delivered today. Those will not be consumed by this girl...I hate mushrooms.

Bloggers I follow that are participating (visit their sites to see who else is participating):

Josey (of course) @ My Cheap Version of Therapy who is postpartum
Gee @ GeeBaby who is relatively new to blogging
Donor Diva @ Donor Diva: Mother via Egg Donation who is trying for #2
Holly G @ Holly G and Co. who is postpartum after #2
Jenn @ Adventures of The Nomadic Housewife who is postpartum
Mag @ Witty Infertility who is TTC
The Cornfed Feminist @ The Cornfed Feminist who is TTC


  1. Why would yoga class mess with ovulation? Just curious if you've read something!

    Maintaining is better than gaining - way to stick with it!

  2. Wish we all lived closer so we could be little birdies in each others ears to keep ourselves motivates. Maintaining of course is better then gaining. Keep going we can knock these pounds off.
