Wk 122 Weigh In

Saturday, August 10, 2013

So this week was a little better for me mentally. I was able to get my head on a little straighter and that makes a difference. My back is still bothering me, but there are good days and not so good days where that is concerned. Psychologically, it always helps to have a loss for the week.

Weight : 209.2
Loss : 1.6
Total : 110.8 (NOTE TO SELF: was 108.0 but since I adjusted my ticker a little, I needed
to make the same adjustment here on my blog post) Why did you read
this, it was a note to myself!

It feels good to be back on the losing side of things, at least as far as weight goes.

I have changed my ticker, not drastically, but a change none the less. I moved my starting weight up from 317 to 320. The reason being two fold; one, 317 was my initial weigh in for the biggest loser challenge that I did back in May 2011, but a couple days before that I did see 320 on my scale at home. Since I had already decided to start losing weight when I saw the 320, it makes sense for that to be my actual starting weight. Second is the fact that 320 is a more pleasing number than 317 both in how it looks and how it sounds.

Now, with moving my starting weight to 320 and having set a goal to lose 110 lbs it would seem that I'm cheating and could move my goal from 207 to 210 and I could celebrate for hitting my goal, woohoo!! BUT, In fairness to the game, I moved my goal weight down from 207 to 205. So now instead of losing 110 lbs, I need to lose 115 lbs to meet my goal. I have lengthened the playing field, moved the goal line a bit.

So I have not really made it any easier on myself to reach my goal, but I have made the whole thing more aesthetically pleasing to myself, which I like.

Ok, I'm a little busy so I'm going to end this blog right here.

    LOL - Sorry, I read the note to YOU, too. Nosy blonde, I am! Anyway, DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU! I had adjusted my goal as well, because when I had bypass surgery, I was at 388. So even though I had re-gained a lot of that weight and was starting over, I figured I deserved credit for all I had previously gone through to get where I am today. You are doing AWESOME!!

    Wow great work!!! All that maths gives me a headache but I did read Note to self. I was 110 kgs when I wanted to really work at losing weight but 98 when I joined SP. Hope next week reflects your hard work too. You are on a roll now!!!

    You've been at this long enough ... and with all of your hard work ... no explanation necessary. We know you're not pulling a 'fast one'. lol! I get the whole #s and thinking about the math and what not. It bugs me because from time to time my .2 gets erased from the starting weight on my ticker, and I have no idea why, but it means the difference of showing I've lost 76.8 or 77 lbs! Come on! We like those nice round milestone numbers!

Keep moving forward, my sparkfriend. You'll be there before you know it!
