Weigh In Day

I weighed in this morning at 229.6!! My lowest so far! I lost 1.2 lbs. this week, my goal is 1 lb. a week, so I exceeded! That’s a total of 58.4 lbs. I am so close to my 60 lb goal- which means my new running shoes! My goal for this next week is to meet 228 lbs and meet that goal.


I have lost 8.4 lbs this summer so far. I have 11.6 lbs to lose in 5 weeks. I’m not sure I can do that, but I have already lost more weight this summer than I did the entire summer last year. So I’m happy with that alone!


I’ve lost 2.0 lb so far, this will end on Oct. 13th, and I have 19.6 lbs. to go. Just another fun way to inspire myself and track my weight loss.


I forgot to take a picture of my breakfast this morning, oatmeal, blueberries and milk. So I decided to switch it up a a bit and not do a photo post today.

I was a little more lenient with myself at lunch today, which made me realize that taking photos of what I’m eating is very helpful for me. So I will definitely be continuing that. Don’t worry, I am tracking everything! :)


Last night after our run, I decided to stretch. Christina suggested I stretch because I mentioned my legs being sore to the touch. It felt so good and my legs aren’t sore at all! I will definitely be keeping this up! My knee is the only thing that is sore and I’m hoping the new shoes will help with that. Whenever I put on my shoes, my knee starts to hurt. Running is so hard and difficult for me, probably because of my weight, but I want to keep doing it because of the way it makes me feel. I feel accomplished and successful. I feel good about myself for setting a goal and achieving it. Even if it’s only finishing- it does wonders for me!


I don’t know about you, but I sure am glad we’re half way through the week! I had a long day today and I’m glad it’s over. I’ve had a sore throat all week and I really hope that I’m not getting sick! That’s the last thing I need.

I better get off to cook supper!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! Glad the stretching helped! Ibuprofen for the knees...helps with swelling. My Wii....I love it, but I don't use it often enough for any exercise. Have a few games I love. After running, it is hard to get my heart rate up doing anything else! Today, I burned 200 calories according to my Polar in 30 minutes....not bad for low impact exercise.

  2. How cool are you??!!!! That's so awesome!!! Here's to continued success this summer--and hopefully some new shoes in the very near future!!!
