Woo! Weigh-in day shows I am down 2.2 pounds from my previous weight, after having no change for the past couple weeks. This means I have released 83.4 pounds since 3/1/12, and a total of 118.4 pounds GONE from my highest recorded weight. I am 6.6 pounds from my tentative goal. And at the rate I've been going, it might be a while before I hit that, but I'll get there. I'm just pleased there was a loss this week!

Weigh-in day. 1.6 pounds down from last week, making me under 155 pounds now. Total released since 3/1/12: 81.2 pounds. That makes 116.2 pounds GONE from my highest recorded weight.
A few measurements this month went down; a half inch each from my waist, my hips, the area above my navel, and my upper arm. Still working, but patience is not my strong point. I am 8.8 pounds from my "goal weight", but that might change up or down depending.
But yay, good week for fitness results!

I'd been at a damned plateau for 11 weeks. Stayed within a 2 pound range. Yes, I've been strength training, muscle weighs more than fat, blah blah...but it's still frustrating!
However, weigh-in today showed I have shed 2.4 pounds this week, after being at that plateau for 11 weeks! May this plateau stay BUSTED! So, looks like the slightly higher calorie intake, and higher water intake (calories adjusted for the more intense workouts I do now) might have done the trick. This will require a few weeks of watching to make sure, but I feel like I could just cry right now. Happy tears! And I did my measurements and 3-month status pics and wow.
Anyway.... this makes for a total of 79.4 pounds released since 3/1/12, and a total of 114.4 pounds GONE off my highest recorded weight. I've gotten rid of 6 inches this past month, and a total of *72 FREAKING INCHES* gone off the areas of my body that I track. This is working. Stay the course.
Not from today's pics, but from a couple weeks ago: A before-and-current of me in concert black. Woot!

My statement of accountability for this past weekend: I blew my diet big time. I expected I would, as it was my future brother-in-law's wedding and a time for celebration. But I went way over on food. Over-splurged, if you will. I enjoyed it, and I enjoyed the weekend, but I need to be accountable for stepping way outside my bounds. (Though, I did get time on the elliptical in the hotel's fitness center on Saturday at least!) I'm back in the saddle today, and hopefully can stay there rather than slip again. I'll have no idea what this week really did for my weight as July is still a no-scale week. But the past is the past, and let's keep moving forward!

I haven't made an entry in a while, even though there has been changes in weight and such. Just been so busy with medical issues I haven't focused on blogging.
Trying, though, to keep things in perspective since I seem to be at another damn plateau.
When I started this journey last March, I was wearing size 22 pants, and they were tight. I was wearing 3x, sometimes 4x shirts. Today, I am wearing anywhere from size 4 to size 8 pants (depending on fit, damn women's clothing!) and size small and medium shirts.
I've lost 75 pounds in the past year and four months, I've dropped 75 pounds. 110(ish) if you count from my highest recorded weight in 2005, where I was wearing size 24-26 jeans and 4x shirts.
So, screw the scale. I'm still doing what I know I need to do, and inches are still dropping. The scale is just a number. It doesn't define me. Damn you, society, for telling me it does!
