Week 103 Weigh In

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Well this week was kind of an up and down week for me. Started off going well then all of a sudden my weight started going back up, despite being careful of what I was eating (sodium, sugar, etc). I was getting my minutes in but there was some sort of rebellion going on inside me!

At first I was troubled by this, because it was looking like I was going to, once again, post a gain instead of a loss. But I decided to just do what I could, and let the chips fall where they may. I know that sometimes our bodies will do things that seem to defy all logic and maybe this week was just going to have be put under the label of "bodies do weird things".

When I stepped on the scale this morning I ended up with a small loss (hooray!), nothing to brag about, but still a move in the right direction. I fully expect next week to be posting a gain, so I'll take this small loss with a smile.

Weight : 213.0
Loss : .4
Total : 104.2

213.0 is my new lowest weight! Not by much though because I was 213.2 two weeks ago, but still it's a new low.

Tonight I will be going out to a dance club, completely unlike me I know , but yesterday was the birthday of a friend of mine (42) and tomorrow (Easter) is my birthday (43). So my friend has invited a bunch of people to go dancing and since it's my birthday too, she talked me into going out also. Wish me luck!

Happy Easter, Happy Passover or Happy End of March to everyone!

So, you had a Birthday/Easter....what a combination! LOL Did your mom make you a peep birthday cake? I hope not!!

You're doing great Ken, one week at a time~ It's always a great feeling to hit that "new low" isn't it? Congrats!!

    Happy Birthday! I'll bet you're healthier than you were a year ago - you're reversing the aging process.
And some dancing to boot! Hope you had a great time with your friends, and enjoyed spending some time outside of your comfort zone. That means you're living life!

Congrats on the all time low. That's awesome! And kudos for not letting the scale get the better of you when it wasn't showing what you wanted during the week.

Keep up the great work, and hope you're having a great birthday!

    Hi Ken, the same thing happened to me last week! Doing the right things, but the scale goes up! (I shouldn't weigh every morning!)
Congrats on your weight loss and new LW (lowest weight). Happy Easter (we are supposed to have our Easter service and beach baptism in an hour and a half and it is fiercely storming). Happy Birthday-have fun dancing (that burns calories).

    Happy Birthday and Happy Easter. I'm glad too that this month is just about over. The fact that you've weighed in and blogged for more than 100 weeks is a tribute to your tenacity.

I hope you have fun at the dance club. A friend of mine once went to a dance even though he has not in the mood and wound up meeting the woman who became his wife. So you never know. Usually when I am not into the social gathering I'm going to and I expect to have a bad time, I am usually surprised that I have a really good time (and visa versa).
