Weekly Weigh-in

I haven't posted in a few weeks, because I was bloated and not losing anything. I'm happy to say this morning I'm now down another 4 pounds, which brings the grand total to 129.6 pounds lost! I've switched up my gym routine and have started going M/W/F morning instead of Tu/Th/Sa. It does mean three 4am wake-ups instead of 2, but I'm liking having the weekends off.

The next 3 weekends in a row, I know I'll be going to events where I won't be sticking to my calorie intake. I'm hoping to be able to just maintain for the next 3 weeks, cause I know I won't have a loss those weeks.

125.6 pounds gone forever! I lost 3 pounds this week, bringing my total lost to 125.6 pounds, I'm thrilled! I still have a very long way to go, but I'll get there.

I figured since it's been another 15 + pounds I should probably update my before and now pictures, so here they are: (please ignore the stupid face and lack of make-up, it was late last night)

I've mentioned in the past that I'm always using fitday, it's free and I'm able to track my calories, weights, measurements, etc. What I love about the website is it stores all my past weigh-in and measurements. Out of curiosity after doing my measurements last night, I looked up my measurements from last July.

Since last July I've lost:

1.5 inches in my neck
4 inches in each of my biceps
1.25 inches in each of my forearms
8.25 inches in  my chest
9.5 inches in my waist
10.5 inches in my hips
6 inches in each of my thighs
3.25 inches each of my calves

That brings my total inches lost in the last year to 58.75. When I add it all up like that it puts each little inch into prospective.

Weekly Weigh In

I only lost 0.8 pounds this week, which I was actually pleasantly surprised by. I didn't expect to lose anything this week! Friday night we went out to celebrate my sister's birthday, I had pre-planned to eat crappy and have a few drinks. I ate great all day Friday and did as I had planned Friday night. Saturday morning I recovered and got back on my diet. That would have been all well and good, except  Saturday afternoon I fell off the wagon and hit hard. I don't even want to try to figure out how many calories I consumed Saturday, it was repulsive.

I got up Sunday morning determined to get my shit together. I hit the gym at 7am, my IBS was in full force due to all the junk I ate. I pushed through the pain and got my workout in. Unfortunately on the way home from the gym I puked, while driving. I did manage to get it all in the empty cup my husband had left in the car, and thanks to 18 months of morning sickness practice I didn't have to take my eyes off the road, nor did I get any anywhere, but in the cup.

Getting sick Sunday after the gym, just reminded me how awful I feel when I eat crappy. I'm happy to report I made it through the holiday without cheating again. I was just hoping to not have a gain this week, after my awful weekend, so I was happily surprised to see a lose this morning.

My total lost is now 120.2 pounds!

Weekly Weigh-in

Well, I've been in hiding lately. I'd hit a damn plateau and it was messing with my head. I was eating within my calorie range, working out like crazy, and I still couldn't get that damn scale to move. I knew there was no way I could drop any more calories and continue working out like I was. I just felt stuck. In fact one morning a few weeks ago I came home from the gym and sobbed, I was just so frustrated. I was working as hard as possible and not seeing results.

Cole suggested I not change my daily calorie allowance just alter the type of calories I was eating. I cut out most of my daily carb calories and replaced them with protein calories. I am very happy to report that I finally busted through that damn plateau! I lost 1.4 pounds this week, which now brings my total lost so far to 119.4 pounds!
