Weigh In Day

I felt very good about this week. My eating was under control and I exercised all 5 days, even making changes to my schedule to make sure I had time to fit my workout in. Last week I had, what I believe, my highest gain on this journey. This week I am happy to report I had a wonderful loss.

This weeks weigh in revealed a 1 pound loss (I am not sure what is going on with how MFP reports that but I think I entered something wrong when I signed up and that is why they are only reporting a 0.8 pound loss - but the ticker to the right is correct). With that loss comes a huge sigh of relief.

Lately, I have been incorporating strength training into my workouts and I am starting to feel stronger, which means that I must be gaining muscle, which does put a little weight on you. Hopefully, my body is on the rebound from that weight gain last week but I am not getting to overly excited because my body doesn't seem to have two significant losses each week (only time will tell).

Either way, I am celebrating for today because the numbers are moving down once again.

Total loss this week: 1 pound
Total loss since the start of this journey: 15.8 pounds (I'm back above 15 pounds lost!!)
Total loss needed until goal: 47 pounds


  1. Congratulations, you're another pound closer to your goal. That does call for a celebration because this has been a good week for you. You're staying strong, making exercise a priority and you seem more determined than ever. You go girl!

  2. I don't know what got into me last week, but it seemed like I was "extra" determined. I was so tired of being stuck in a dreaded weight loss plateau, that I knew I had to do something and I am glad it paid off.
