wednesday weigh-in: week 8/9

I know....Im a week behind. But in my defense last week was absolutely crazy. I didnt even blog once last week. I took the red eye out Wednesday morning to NYC for work, stayed the night, worked thursday, and then hopped on a plane back Thursday night. Which means I missed my regular Wednesday night meeting. I figured I would just go on Saturday morning and weigh-in, but then hubs and I decided it would be a nice weekend to get away for a little while. So Friday we packed up the car, baby, dog & all, and headed to a friends house up in Okeechobee. Ill post another time about how we enjoyed the weekend, but lets just say i took a lil mini "break" for this here diet lifestyle change.

Which as you can tell, probably doesnt mean I did to good, considering its basically like skipping 2 weeks worth of healthy living. And to top it all off, I cant even give you my stats for this week yet either. Again, Im going to be missing my WW meeting tonight. My sis just so happens to have tickets to a Matchbox20 concert tonight at HardRock and invite me to go with. So you wont get my stats until I go to the Thursday meeting tomorrow night, but I didnt want to miss checking in with you all for another week.

I hate to disappoint you myself, but the past week I havent tracked whatsoever, nor did I exercise at all. I know its boring to read "no progress" but I want to be held accountable. I dont want to slip right back into old habits, and if I dont start back new tomorrow morning, then I will feel like I have failed. And I havent.

When you are in the process of changing how you eat, there are most definitely going to be some setbacks, celebrations, and days where you just cant resist that ice cream! but thats ok. Dont let the one indulgence ruin the good you are becoming. Just know that you will have to work a little harder if you arent going to do the whole "absolutely no fat/carbs/sweets/junk/etc." Is that  reality anyways? When you deprive yourself of something, you actually end up craving it so bad that one day you overindulge waaaaaaaay to much. At least in my experience thats how it works.

So, im unfortunately expecting no weight loss this week. Im actually anticipating at least a 3-5lb gain. But we shall see. For those of you on a weight loss journey, what keeps you going when youve had a bad year month week day?

updated: I cant believe it! I actually shed 1.2lbs this week! I am absolutely ecstatic right now! I totally went into tonights (thursday) meeting expecting to have gained weight in the past 2 weeks. I guess because I was so aware of the things I was eating, that I didnt overindulge in those things. Just goes to show that once healthy eating & proportions becomes a daily thing, a habit if you will, then it just comes naturally

lbs shed this week:  (updated) -1.2

lbs shed in total: -13.6 (updated)

lbs still need to shed: 36.4 (updated)

first goal: 10lbs - reached on 2/13/13
  •     reward:  mani/pedi and possibly massage (still havent done this yet, but with the stats im anticipating, i just cant bring myself to be rewarded this week lol)
second goal: 25lbs
  •     reward: new rollerblades
final goal:  50lbs
success: none :(

set-backs: NYC, Okeechobee, not tracking, the list could go on for a while.....

exercise: none :(


  1. So random but - I am from Okeechobee!! I can't believe you took a weekend to visit the sleepy little town :) Small world!

  2. Way to go go, mama! You're doing so great!

    PS? I have an Epiphanie camera bag... totally worth losing 50lbs for. Great final goal!
