Weekly Wednesday Weigh-in: Starting week 16


I wrote this on Wednesday but then never posted it. Thanks Donor Diva for the reminder.

I suck.

I'm not sure why I'm even posting, I made little to no effort this week on any of my goals.
No weight lost, no weight gained. No progress, no changes.
I suck at this.
I'm halfway to my goal, that should be really motivating in and of itself, but somehow I just can't get going again. I'm really going to try this week. Really.

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: 136
Current Weight: 135 (-10 lbs total, 10 lbs to goal!!!)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 24.1
Current BMI: 23.9 (In the normal range!!)
Goal BMI: 18.5-24.9 or exactly 22.1 for goal weight

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

Progress on last week's activities:

1. Get to the gym and walk/run on the treadmill or go for a hike: Fail. Oh wait! I did go for a hike, but we had a 2 year old with us so it only lasted like 20-30 minutes, does that count?
2. Continue with no soda or beer: um...only diet coke, does that still count?...shit
3. Go to yoga class: Fail
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app: I went back in and entered my stuff, so...go me!
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal: need to get back on top of this one.
Activities for this coming week: (the more activities I attempt, the more I am likely to achieve)

1. Get to the gym and walk/run on the treadmill or go for a hike
2. Continue with no soda or beer
3. Go to yoga class: Canceled this week
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal

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 intended to post a picture this week, but none of them turned out good because I was taking them at night.

I'll post one next week and take a pic in the morning.

I'm really very satisfied with my current weightloss, but I'm not satisfied with my body. I have what I refer to as a  6 pack of flab. My belly is really the only place I have to lose weight, maybe my arms too, but maybe posting a picture of myself will motivate me to get back on top of this.

  1. My belly is definitely where I need to lose weight as well, always has been. :P

    I know it gets frustrating when you hit plateaus and lose motivation, but it's a victory in and of itself to be maintaining at least. You can lose that last half - get back at it!!

  2. I don't think you suck, you've lost ten pounds! I think that's quite impressive! You can do it!

  3. You have lost 10 pounds, go you!!!! I gave up soda but still have beer from time to time. I feel it's only right since I can't seem to get and stay prego. But I know it has a ton of calories. Thanks for the good advice on my blog!

  4. You don't suck you silly girl!! You have lost 10 lbs, Feel great about it!! It gets hard when you hit that middle slump, but that's when you have to change things up a bit and give yourself a new can do it! You have motivated me to make changes in myself and I thank you for that!

  5. I think you're doing awesome! At least you didn't gain- 10 lbs lost is great!
