Weigh-In Day

I thought I had a pretty good week last week, after all, I ate sensibly, exercised and stayed under my daily calorie allowance. Therefore, I had no idea what to expect when I stepped on the scale. On the weeks when I feel pretty good, I don't lose as much; on the weeks when I think I could have done a lot better, I lose more. This is something that I can't wrap my mind around yet.

When I stepped on the scale today, I only had one thought in my mind "please let me see a loss on the scale and not a gain" thankfully when I stepped on the scale, it revealed that I had lost a pound. Talk about excited, now some may not get excited and feel that they should have lost more, but I was very excited to see this one pound loss. One pound may not seem like a lot now, but those pounds can add up and before I know it I will be at my goal.

Total loss this week: 1 pound
Total loss for the month: 1 pound
Total loss since the start of this journey (January 2): 14.2 pounds


  1. Congrats on another loss! I had a similar situation this week where I was doing everything right and lost about the same as you. Some weeks there are just going to be things out of our control that impact on how much we're able to lose, I think.

  2. @RylieEllen thanks!! It does seem that on the weeks where we do everything right, the scale doesn't reflect that. Either way, I see a loss as a loss and I am thankful for the 1 pound loss which puts me closer to my goal.
