Weigh in Day

And it’s weigh in day again! I’m always a little excited about weigh in day when I’m expecting a loss. It’s also a good feeling to be starting fresh for another week.

I had some scale troubles this morning. I may have broken my scale, ha!

For real though, it kept telling me that it wasn’t on a level surface and so I moved it around in my bedroom (wood floor) and kept trying it in different places with no luck. And then it said that the batteries were dead so I brought it downstairs and changed those.

I placed the scale on my kitchen floor and it kept telling me it wasn’t on a level surface again. So I moved it around and around the room grumbling about how our old house has no level floors. And then I flipped the scale over and realized one of the little feet on the scale was broken. Face—>Palm.

I couldn’t quickly find a solution on how to fix it and didn’t feel like spending my little bit of alone time in the morning fixing a scale, so I hopped onto my trusty old WW scale. I went with the number there since it happened to be about the average of all of the measurements from my lopsided scale.

Whew.

I ended up losing 1.3 lbs. I will take any loss I can get!

I was quite a bit less active this week, probably due to the fact that I wasn’t feeling 100% like myself. (I might be feeling better again?…we’ll see) I’m not going to worry about it because a loss is a loss.

Total weight loss – 10.3 lbs.

Sometimes I feel like giving up because I am not seeing much progress. But I am responsible and it’s because I’m not giving it 100% consistently. I have had quite a few weeks where I stopped tracking. I haven’t been consistent with anything, including exercise. But at the end of the day I have to remind myself that 10.3 lbs. isn’t anything to laugh at—it’s progress.

I have been hovering within the same couple of pounds for about two months and I’m so ready to break through that! I am going to focus on consistency. This week I avoided falling off the wagon by going back and tracking the food that I hadn’t tracked for a few days. I’m glad I did that.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

 

How was your weigh in this week?

  1. A loss is a loss - You should be very happy with it, especially with everything you're going through, mama! I am doing my first post-baby challenge and am *trying* to eat clean and the do the best I can! I haven't weighed myself yet but I will next week to see where I'm at. It's my first weekend leaving baby Dean so of course all I want is a large glass of wine and a bag of chocolate, LOL. I'll be back tomorrow night but I didn't realize how hard it would be to leave my baby!

  2. I had a scale that was supposed to be so accurate but had to be on a level surface. We also have an older house and nowhere was level! Lol I sold it and just keep using my 9-year-old Health-O-Meter. :) Yay for a loss! Sounds good to me!

  3. 1.3 is a GREAT loss! I have issues with consistency too... but by reading other blogs, I'm learning that it's a lot more common than I imagined! Life in general is not a consistent, predictable thing, so why should weight loss be any different, right? 10 pounds is nothing to sneeze at--that's 10 boxes of butter!

  4. Great loss! I know what you mean about giving up, just keep telling yourself that you are doing better than those who haven't tried yet! You're doing great!

  5. Great loss and too funny about the scale foot lol. Had a bit of a surprise on the scale this week and I've lost .5lb. Still within my maintenance range, but I've been creeping towards the lower end of it over the past few weeks. I'm now 2lbs from the lowest end, and I may end up having to re-evaluate and adjust my maintenance window if the trend continues!
