Weigh In Day

This week I did a little experiment of my own. I wanted to see how my body would react at my weekly weigh in if I didn't exercise for the week (the only day I exercised was on Monday). I wanted to see if I would lose, gain or maintain my current weight. My allotted calories through MFP are enough to allow me to lose weight as long as I stay under those calories each day.

This week I lost 0.8 pounds. My running average for the past two weeks has been losing 1 pound per week. That means MFP is right, the calories I am allotted each week, still allow me to lose weight even if I don't exercise. I may have lost a pound if it wasn't for all of those french fries I was eating yesterday, but the main thing is that I still lost something.

Total loss this week: 0.8 pounds
Total loss since the start of this journey: 17.6 pounds

Head over to the progress page to see how my measurements changed from the beginning of the month to the end!


  1. I've been wondering how that was going to work. Thanks for sharing your results. When you mentioned french fries, I thought of a picture that I'm going to use on tomorrow's post about cravings... you'll see. Oh and congrats on the weight loss.

    1. Thanks! I didn't know what was going to happen at the end of the week but a loss is still a loss. It does seem that working out produces a greater loss of weight than simply counting calories. Can't wait to read the post!
