Weekly Weigh In

Last Week: 188.2
This Week: 189.0
Change: +.8

Another week of gains. But I am okay with that. As long as I keep weighing myself every day, I never let myself gain more than 5 lbs. And I have an end of the down-period or should I say another recommitment coming next Friday, the 1 year anniversary of my one last year.

Another thing I am considering doing is changing the name of the blog - I hate dates - I hate saying 'I am going to lose X by Y" It never, ever works.

Though I did make a physical today for June 21st so I have 3 months. My last physical was last February, so right at my highest amount. If I can come back having lost between 40 and 50 lbs, she would be absolutely thrilled (as would I!)

This week didn't go even remotely the way I wanted it to - I ended up having to be home Tuesday and Wednesday with a sick kid, and thus I couldn't be home yesterday. It was the most stressful work week to date in a long, long time. But thankfully I could have today off! It is 65 degrees and gorgeous. Tomorrow and for the next week it will be back to 40 degrees. So I am trying to soak in today.

Yesterday was my son's second birthday so I've officially been post-partum for 2 years (can you really say post-partum after the first year? I doubt it, but I will!)

We had one party for my son last night, one tonight, house guests and a 5 day business trip coming up. See why my recommitment isn't happening until next Friday?! Though I won't use the business trip as an excuse to eat everything in sight. I am hoping to stop at a grocery store after we land to get healthy snacks and lots of water. The theme of the party tonight is Farm, so we are having all sorts of stuff that lives and grows on a farm - not all 100% healthy, but good whole, non-processed food.

This was me a year ago for my son's first birthday

And his 2nd


  1. I agree with you on the "I will lose x by y" thing. It has never worked for me, ever. I also can understand about not losing when you're out of town. Things just never seem to go to plan when you're away from home.

  2. the loss is defnitely noticeable since last year! Yay!

    I agree with not setting dates as well. When I started my journey (May 09) I simply stated to my friend, "I will buy a dress in the regular sizes in two years at [husband]'s graduation." I couldn't and wouldn't commit to anything more than that, knowing 16s are in the regular department and I was wearing a tight 22w at that time. You know mine's been a slow journey, but I haven't quit or given up and I know I'll get there eventually.

    I'm so glad you don't quit and I know you'll get back to it when the schedule isn't so hectic or stressful. Have a nice weekend!
