Week 19 & 20: 142 up to 142.5/143, But I'm Okay With That
No regrets for the weight gain. Last week was super busy, since I was the camp director for my church branch's girls' camp and I went camping for the first time.
Can't say I really enjoyed camping, with the horrid heat and humidity the fir... Read more
Week 18: 144.5 to 142! Over Halfway to Weight Goal!
WOOHOO! 144 is the halfway point to my weight goal of 120, but I'm two pounds past that this weigh-in. YAY!
I have been wondering if I should up my weight goal to 125-130, though, because the last time I weighed 120, I was a teenager who at... Read more
Week 17: 144.5, Unchanged, But Awesome Monthly Measurements!
I'm actually pretty happy that I just maintained this past week, because I kinda super splurged on spaghetti that is my husband's own recipe. It's my hugest food weakness, but since it takes a while to make, we (fortunately for my weight, unfort... Read more
Week 16: 146.5 to 144.5. Now in "Healthy" BMI Range
I know BMI is not the most accurate predictor of health, but it's still pretty nice to see that I'm back 0.1 into the "Healthy" range, lol. And I'm 0.5 pound away from being halfway to my weight goal. :)
I meant to blog yesterday, but I was... Read more
Week 15: 147.5 to 146.5. New Exercise Plan with My Toddler
I stayed in my calorie range last week, but I definitely sucked at eating healthy and I really need to get back to eating more fruits and veggies and low-fat foods. I mean, I like a lot of fruits and some veggies and I'd eat them if I prepared t... Read more
Week 14: 148.5 to 147.5
Officially lost 20 pounds now! Woohoo!
I do think I would be losing more weight if I can just actually exercise, but when I started last Monday, I felt pain and soreness in my left knee, so I immediately stopped. Darn you knee!
I did d... Read more
Week 13: 149 to 148.5 and Monthly Measurements
Since I was sick all last week, I didn't get to exercise, but I stayed within my calorie range and ate relatively healthy. I'm also dealing with the end of TOM and I tend to get a little bloated, so a 0.5 pound loss is quite a win.
For my ... Read more
Week 12: 152 to 149. Yay 140s!
So I missed my goal of hitting the 140s by last week, but I hit it this week, so that's still awesome! Especially with having been pretty sick the past week, so the only exercise I did a couple of times was marching in place or while sitting at ... Read more
Week 11: 151.5 to 152. Oops, lol.
Okay, I have some legitimate excuses for this 0.5 pound weight gain... And some non-legitimate excuses, too, lol. :P
My husband has been wanting to build a fire pit in our backyard, so Monday, we went to buy a bunch of stone blocks that wer... Read more
Week 10: 154 to 151.5
Woohoo! Down 2.5 pounds! Just a little bit more, and I'll be in the 140s, where I haven't been since 2008. And once I hit my goal weight of 120, I wouldn't have been that weight since the end of my senior year of high school in early 2006. Gosh,... Read more
Non-Scale Victory I've Been Aiming For
When I started SparkPeople, I still had my baby bump from my pregnancy that was almost four years ago. Honestly, I've been embarrassed by it for those past four years, and pretty much all my shirts that I like emphasized it greatly. I either wor... Read more
Week 9: 154, Unchanged, & Monthly Measurements
Again, I'm happy to maintain than gain this past week. I only exercised on Monday, then on Tuesday, I decided that my hamstring was still hurting too much to continue exercising, so I wanted another week to let it heal. Plus, there was so much g... Read more
Week 8: 157.5 to 154. Awesome :D
WALKINGRED called it, that it'd be a great weigh-in after the last one being maintenance. I lost 3.5 pounds. Boo-ya!
It's also kinda awesome, because I hadn't exercised at all this last week, including no strength training. I decided I real... Read more
Week 7: 157.5, Unchanged *Shrugs*
Happier to maintain than gain.
I ate within range all last week and did a lot of low-impact exercises ... Read more
Afternoon Workouts Not Working Out
*giggles at my title*
It's nice to blog. Even if no one else reads what I write, writing out my thoughts and concerns helps me think more clearly and thoroughly.
Well, when I began my journey to a healthier me, I contemplated whether I... Read more
