Wk 104 Weigh In

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Happy Saturday everyone!

First let me start off by saying that even though this is week 104, it isn't my 2 year anniversary. When I started here my weigh in days were on Monday for the first ten weeks due to being in a local biggest loser contest. After ten weeks I switched to Saturday weigh ins because it made more sense for me. So my actual 2 year anniversary isn't until the 12th of April, the day before my week 105 weigh in.

This week, much like many of my weeks in recent memory, was an up and down week, mostly up! It started off with last Sunday (Easter) being my birthday, which meant I had Saturday and Sunday both as off days, pizza being consumed each day. For dessert on my birthday I had cherry pudding pie, a delicious concoction that has cherries and enough sugar to make an oompa loompa comatose! Of course there was enough leftover cherry pudding pie that I had a serving each night for several days! But hey, it was my birthday :)

I got plenty of fitness minutes in, but at the end of the week it wasn't enough to win the battle of the scale for the week. On to the numbers;

Weight : 214.0
Gain : 1.0
Total : 103.2

So I gained 1 lb for the week. I'm ok with it, I ate some of my favorite food and took in a lot of sugar. It's not the end of the world! Besides, I'm getting used to being up one week then down the next.

On the plus side I did get another class finished up this week, Basic Business Accounting and Information Technology (or something like that!), another 6 units done! I have 2 months left in the term, but I don't think I'll take on another class right now, I'll just wait until the next term starts. I have four 2 unit classes left which all have a lot of writing involved, a 6 unit class that only has a big exam to pass then it's on to the two 9 unit classes that will finish my degree! There's an outside chance that I will be done by December, but it will, in all reality, probably be closer to this time next year before I finish up.

So that's all I have for now. May you all have a wonderful weekend!

    You are doing so well on both the weight/fitness front and the schooling front and are an inspiration to me. I know it's certainly no picnic but you're getting results, which takes guts and perseverance, and you consistently come through on both counts!

    oh this is gonna be late but HAPPY BIRTHDAY! lol glad you enjoyed it. 1lb in a week is not bad at all since you did eat pie and pizza. I still throw in some foods that i know a lot of dieters would cringe on but we are used to eating horribly aslong as we remember where are priorities are. You've done really good with your weightloss and have achieved a lot. So great job on your loss and good luck on your classes! Your doing a awesome job!!

    Only a pound gained...that is super! That probably shows that you have increased muscle mass and can handle a few more calories. I am seeing a loss for you this coming week. Glad you had a good birthday celebration..... working your body and your mind.....couldn't be better. emoticon emoticon

    Hi Ken, you sound so much better in your blogs these days and it's good to hear your wonderful spirit coming through. We don't need to be so focused on losing weight that we miss celebrating life too.

    I hope you have a great week this week and congrats a little early on the 2 year anniversary...take time to reflect on what you've accomplished and are in mist of accomplishing right now. You are doing awesome, you go get em!!

    emoticon Congratulations on April 12th!

    Keep on, keepin' on! I, too, am up (Easter goodness and leftovers!) ...haven't had a chance to blog - but I know it won't stick around.

    Glad you enjoyed your birthday treats and Easter. Perspective and lifestyle. We don't stop living and enjoying, we just learn how to balance those treats out over the long haul. You've got it down and continue to inspire us.

    Way to go with your class. I know how hard it is to go back as an adult. Hats off to you!

    AAHHH, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel in regards to school - CONGRATS!! Also, I'm super happy that you had a nice birthday & enjoyed yourself! Did you get any dancin' in?! Now that you got your groove on, you don't want another 20 years of dust to collect again, ya know! :)

    Cheers to another good week for you - keep it up!!

    PS. Why do I think I wouldn't get much more sleep there?! emoticon

    Happy birthday! My boss said that his mom's doctor told her that the only cake he wanted her eating was birthday cake-hers! So, I guess cherry pudding pie would qualify as birthday pie.

    Well considering you only gained one pound for all the sugar you took in, I would probably be as ok with it as you are!!! lol Birthdays only come once a year, and one pound can be lost with a touch of extra work. No biggie! Good job, you still had a fine week in my book, so just keep at it!

    What a great attitude to have!! I've actually started weighing in every other week because I do the same thing - up then down. I just keep hoping the down is a bigger number than the up!

    Oh, and I'm with Babe - I want to know more about cherry pudding pie :)

    Have a great week!!
