Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting week 17


I did slightly better this week, but am just starting to get back into the swing of things.

No weight lost, no weight gained, but I hope to change that soon.

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: I went to the gym last night just so that I could put it on here :)
2. Continue with no soda or beer: I'm trying to get back onto just lipton green tea and water, but I just love ginger ale, and at least it has no caffeine even if it has a lot of sugar and calories
3. Go to yoga class: class was cancelled and I can't make it to the make-up because of a meeting at work
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app: I have been trying to use it, but I've not been good about staying under my goal
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal: I ate out 6 times in the last 3 days, no good

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. Try to find a yoga video on netflix
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'm very nervous to post a picture. I don't know why, you guys have always been supportive.
I just feel like some people will say, "you're so skinny, you don't need to lose weight!" Or other people will say, "geesh she's been working out for like forever and her stomach still looks like that!"

Maybe posting it will help me get back on top of this.

So here goes...

Side note: I know that picture is crap, I need to learn how to do this for future belly photos, but it was taken at night with no natural light and no flash. The picture Nate took of me makes me look like an umpa lumpa, just FYI, this was definitely the best choice.

  1. LOL - way to go to the gym so you could write something in your progress notes. I'm glad we're on the same page. :)

    I think posting a picture is GREAT motivation - it's also cool to be able to look back at where you've been and how far you've come.

    Tracking in MFP is really key for me - and it REALLY makes it hit home how much eating out fucks with your total calories consumed in a day

    Hang in there!

  2. Being told you are skinny and you don't need to lose weight is very frustrating. Yes, we are on the smaller side but that doesn't mean we are at our healthiest weight.

    My goal this week is to re-dedicate and really focus on tracking food. We are going to reach our goals and look HOT this summer!
