Results week #11

Friday, March 29, 2013

well this week wasn't as good. I ate poorly way too much sodium and too much crap. So I am paying for it. My fault.

I am happy to see that I can face my behavior and not try to find excuses for what happens. I need to do better this week and I will.
Despite all that, according to my Bodymedia personal report here is my daily average for the week:

Calories burned : 2921 (better than last week)
Calories consumed : 2525 (That is NOT a good thing....)
Calorie balance : -369
Physical activity : 1h07 min (better than previous)
Number of steps : 10114 (better)
Sleep duration : 6h43min

I am proud I got moving more, mostly out of guilt over my food intake but at least I did move more. I can't say I am proud of myself for that week but. I know I can kick my butt and do better this week.

What I am happy about is the fact that I didn't just decided to quit because "I can't do this!" That was my previous way of doing this. Instead, I am moving on and I will do better.

here are the results:

Starting weight 1/1/2011 : 258
weight when joining Spark weight 4/16/2011 : 231.3 lbs
lowest weight since starting all this : 225.8 lbs
Ultimate goal weight : 180

1/1/2013 weight : 263 lbs
week 1 weight : 259.6 lbs
week 5 weight : 256.4 lbs
week 6 weight : 253 lbs
week 7 weight : 250.6
week 8 weight : 248.6 (now under 250!)
week 9 weight : 249
week 10 weight : 247
week 11 weight : 249

Difference since last week : +2 lbs
Weight difference since started : -9 lbs
Weight difference since joined spark : +17.7 lbs
Weight difference since lowest measured : +23.2 lbs
Weight difference since 2013/01/01 : -14 lbs

lbs to goal 69 lbs

so that week set me back to the previous week weight. Nothing to be proud of but nothing to beat myself over. I will do better and stay away from sodium this week.
Have a great week!

    I am not trying to be like I was as a teen! I keep them there because I was actually there not so long ago and it keeps me motivated. I know I can go there again.

    Yeah, I'm all too familiar with the weigh in that puts you back to a previous weight! It sucks but it is just temporary, something you already know :) Now you can put the week behind you and start fresh and give it another shot!

    Happy Easter to you and your family sis :)

    Acknowledging your mistakes and moving on is definitely the biggest part of weight loss!! Good for you for not giving up.

    I don't know that I would always count how many pounds I'm over the lowest I've ever been though, that's gotta be rough on the self esteem at some point! Forget how much you weighed once upon a time... That's gone and over with. Only important thing is how much you weigh now and where you're heading (goal weight)... But you know best for you!!! Guess I just wanted to throw in there that if those numbers are always bugging you, get rid of it...

    Good luck!!!! :) I'll be watching!!
