Weigh In Week 5

I'm finally DOWN!!!! I'm at 155.6 this week which is a 1 pound loss from the start 5 weeks ago.

I'm thrilled about the loss. I worked hard this week and actually accomplished all my goals (more about that later). I really am happy. But at the same time, in the back of my head, there is a nagging depression because I've only lost 1 pound in 5 weeks. Really? ONE pound in FIVE weeks! That's not good! But I'll try to not dwell on that. I'll accept the positive (the loss) and ignore the negative. I'll try to see this as the beginning of my body making the changes it needs to in order to loose weight.

Last Weeks Goals:
Go to the gym 3 times - I did it! I finally went to the gym 3 times this week, and look! A loss!
Minimize carbs - I did great on this. I didn't eliminate carbs. I just tried to be aware of places that I could easily cut them some.
Healthy snacking only during the day, with a tiny treat at night - I can only think of one time that I splurged this past week. And I'm OK with one tiny (candy bar) splurge. A girl's gotta live it up sometimes, right!?!
Don't loose momentum!!! - I totally did this one, too. It wasn't easy, but I do feel like I kept my momentum up this week.

I feel very, very good about how I did on all my goals. Yeah!

This Weeks Goals:
Go to the gym 3 times (which is going to be very, very hard considering my schedule)
Do 100 sit-ups in one evening (I tried to do this last night and could only get to 50 before pooping out)
Don't over-do the eating on the holiday weekend.

No overly lofty goals this week. I leave tomorrow for a camping trip with a bunch of teenage girls and I am a chaperon. I won't be in control of what I eat there. And then as soon as I get back it's the 4th of July and we have big family plans for that day. Most of my goal-accomplishing will be done at the start of next week. But that's what this is all about, right? Learning to change my lifestyle so that being healthy can be a part of it. Not just changing my daily routine for a couple of weeks to drop a few pounds.


  1. don't be hard on yourself. you had a victory, don't water it down by lumping it in with the past. especially when you know exactly why you did well - you met your goals!

  2. Yippee- a loss, a loss, a LOSS!

    Have a great weekend- it sounds like you will be busy.

  3. You did great this week!!! Good job!
