Wk 17 Weigh In

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Sad news day ... 30 or 31 Americans died over night in Afghanistan. An MH-47 Chinook, piloted by Army Special Operations pilots and crew (160th SOAR) was shot down carrying 22 Navy Seals (members of Seal Team 6), a Seal canine, 3 Air Force Combat Controllers, 7 Afghani Special Forces soldiers and a civilian interpreter. All reported to have perished in the crash. A total of 38 lives lost en route to reinforcing a team already in peril on the ground. May God bless these men and their families.

Back to the weigh in.

Weight : 274.1
Loss : 2.5 lbs
Total : 43.1 lbs

Wk 16 Weigh In

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Still hot here in Central California, mid to high 90's mostly. I had kind of a bummer of a week, although I did finally get a paper written for my Ethical Situations in Business class, a paper that I had been putting off for a couple of weeks. Now just have to find out if it passed muster or if I have to refine and polish it some more.

The heat bums me out, makes me want to stay inside all day. I am more of a cool weather person, I prefer the Autumn, with it's cold nights and brisk breezes. Plus there's always football (yay for the lockout being over!) On a football note, if anybody follows the 49ers, their second round draft pick, Colin Kaepernick, hails from my town. My brother coached him in Pop Warner football and some in high school, I worked with him a little in high school in the weight room his freshman or sophomore year. He's a good kid and a hard worker. But I digress ...

Weight : 276.6
Loss : 1.4 lbs
Total : 40.6 lbs

Not a great week, but I am glad to have hit the 40lb lost mark. the Tens (20, 30, 40, etc.) are my little hooray moments :)
So I did it, I have lost over 40 lbs since April 12 when I started on this journey. Much like an airplane that is in trouble and low on fuel, I will continue to jettison all the unwanted weight until I achieve stability.

That's all I got for now, see ya on the flip side.

    Congratulations on your 40 lb loss - quite an accomplishment! You are well on your way to goal. I am just starting out & hoping for some big losses at the beginning to get me fired up & motivated. Definitely agree with you about the hot weather - I am a New England girl who loves foliage & the Patriots (but it has been in the 90's here, too). Have a nice weekend. emoticon

    40lbs is a great accomplishment, and in only a few months that's amazing! Congraulations. Don't get tripped up on the little things. Obviously you're doing that just fine! ;) Keep it up, you'll be to your goal in no time!

Wk 15 Weigh In

Saturday, July 23, 2011

It's hot here. 94-95 degrees, which isn't bad considering that usually this time of year it's 100+, but still I'm feeling uncomfortable. But on the flip side, I know that if I hadn't lost 39 pounds to date, I would be much more uncomfortable. With that being said, I still long for the cool Autumn nights that are months away :(

Be that as it may, I weighed in this morning and this is what I saw:

Weight : 278
Loss : 2.1 lbs
Total : 39.2 lbs

I had high hopes for 2.5+ but I watched a couple movies at a friend's house last night and he put a BIG bowl of salted, buttered popcorn next to me and I mindlessly ate at it the whole time :( It was SOOO good!

But hey, I lost over 2 lbs. and ate the hell out of some delicious popcorn, so I really can't complain. Overall it was a good week.

Ate like a pig today :) It was my little brother's 35th b-day yesterday and we had a family lunch/dinner today. He asked for a Thanksgiving meal so that's what we had. (Tradition in our home has always been that everybody gets to choose what they want for dinner on their birthday. Even if we don't all live in the same house anymore, we're close enough to get together and make it happen.) I picked up my grandparents (they're both 90 and live in senior assisted living) and took them to my brother's house for the dinner. Don't know how many more special occasions we'll have them around for so we cherish the time we do have with them.

That's all for today folks.

Wk 14 Weigh In (a day late)

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Yesterday was my weigh in day, and I weighed in. But then the day was pretty hectic. Went to lunch with 14 other family members to celebrate maternal grandmother's 90th bday. Good times. Grandfather's 91st will be coming up in a couple of months. It's nice to have had them around for so much of my life, not to mention my son's life.

Okay, so I weighed in and here's the stats:

Weight : 280.1
Loss : 2.3lbs
Total : 37.1lbs

Could've been better. After all, I haven't exercised in over a month ... :) My back is feeling better but I have a calcium protrusion on the ball of my right foot. If you cut a AAA battery down the middle and glued the flat side to your foot, that's what it feels like. It's annoying and very uncomfortable. So, no running for me! I wish I had a bike!!

Week 13 Weigh In

Saturday, July 09, 2011

So this last week was a real diet doozy. First I weighed in Saturday morning then had the rest of the day as my "free day" to eat whatever I want. I don't ever really pig out, but usually take in between 2500 and 3500 calories on "free day". But then Monday was the 4th of July! BBQ with friends all day long. So, I had a cheeseburger, like 4 smoked sausages (giant hot dogs) and several handfuls of Doritos and some Costco brownie bites.
I knew that the week was pretty much blown for a weight loss so I cheated a bit here and there the rest of the week. And I had 3 pieces of fried chicken last night for dinner ... ummmm greasy!

I get on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh in and... Lo and behold I'm down 1.1lbs! un-freakin-believable! Woo Hoo!

Weight : 282.4
Loss : 1.1 lb
Total : 34.8 lbs lost

Awesome weigh in considering what I fed my body this week!!
