Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In: Starting week 18


1. I have good intentions but poor follow through, so not much is happening

2. I lost half of a lb but have no way to write that below because I've been working in full lbs, current weight is 135.4, previous weight has been 135.8

3. I will do better next week.

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: went one time
2. Continue with no soda or beer: 2 beers, last night,
3. Yoga video on netflix: I don't get much of a workout at this class and the teacher is dealing with her father after surgery, I'm not sure I will go back, but I didn't try to find a video
4. Continue with My Fit.ness Pal app: did much better this week
5. Limit eating out this week to one time/one meal:We did very good on this, a patient insisted she take me to lunch last Friday, but that was the only time I ate out
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 am most motivated to workout on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday's. I think it is because I feel accountable to you guys because of these posts. I am going to try to use that to my advantage this week. I lost yesterday, but I will try to make the most of today and tomorrow.

  1. Haha...I'm always the best on Mon/Tues because of these posts!! You can do it. :)

  2. I am so with you, I had a terrible week and I am trying to get back on track this week. Good job not gaining though!

  3. Give yourself credit for getting 1/2 way to your goal weight! That's awesome!

    I get a great workout from Biggest Loser Bob's Yoga DVD. It makes me sweat, tires out my muscles, and is yet, relaxing. Perfect.
