Back on the Weekly Wednesday Weigh-ins...

I know that I sort of stopped with the Weekly Wednesday Weigh-ins without any sort of explanation. And...well...I didn't have a good enough excuse to post here. I had lost 12 lbs and felt good and felt like I looked better. Then I had the lap for endo, and I just sort of quit trying. Well, I'm back up 4 lbs and still had 8 more lbs to lose originally...So I'm back on the wagon now.

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:132 (last time I did a www post)
Current Weight: 136 (-9 lbs total, 11 lbs to goal!!!)   
Goal Weight : 125       

Starting BMI: 26.5
Last Week's BMI: 23.4
Current BMI: 24.1 (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:
I've missed yoga for 3 weeks straight, first she cancelled class, then I felt sick, then this week I had an online webinar to watch. Plus...I've been lazy.
However, I have been on 3-4 leisurely bike rides in the last few weeks, however, it hasn't been enough.
Activities for this coming week:

At least 3 times a week, I'm going to pack my bag for the gym before I go to work. One day will be yoga and 2 times will be weight lifting or cardio. 

I will go on one bike ride each week, likely on the weekend.

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 had put off losing the rest of this weight because I didn't want strenuous exercise to affect my fertility. But who was I kidding, I despise strenuous exercise. My version of exercise is mild at best. However, exercise does work, so I'm back to it now.


  1. BWAHAHAHA! Okay, your last paragraph TOTALLY cracked me up. I've made the same excuse, and ya, I don't actually push myself to crazy strenuous exercise often at any rate. :)

    Welcome back! I'm going to have to start weighing in again I think as well. SOOO tired of my work pants not longer buttoning!!

  2. Welcome back! I said I would do this week and I forgot! Oops. I definitely find it helps me when I post though because I feel responsible! Ugg.. No strenuous exercise here either!! :P Good luck with your goals this week!
