Wk 99 Weigh In 3/2/13

Saturday, March 02, 2013

This week is now over for me and I'm glad of it. I didn't feel 100% at all this week, I didn't feel sick, but I just felt kind of off kilter. I got 300 minutes of gym time this week but my diet was all over the place! One of these days, I may get this right.

This is going to be a short blog because I'm tired and I don't feel like spending a lot of time typing today. Also I can't think of anything witty, intelligent or insightful to say, so I should just keep quiet! So with that being said, let's look at this weeks numbers:

Weight : 215.2
Lost : .4
Total : 102

So, 4/10 ths of a pound lost this week. If I had weighed in Friday morning I could have recorded a 1.2 lb loss! But as it turned out, this morning didn't deliver the number that I was hoping for and now I'm really angry and want to do bad things. Just kidding :) It's still a loss and that's cool, just not as cool as a bigger loss would be!

Have a great weekend everybody :)

    I love the fact you just keep plugging away at it. That is the key, to keep going, keep getting back at it and it will all come around. I'm just waiting for the time to come that the losing will slow to a snail's pace for me. It's coming, I know it is...I just hope I will stay as faithful and diligent as you have been.

    I hope this week is going well for you Ken. We are here for you to support you when you need it and to cheer you on as well.

    I hate how our bodies work! Its supposed to be an easy equation, right....calories taken in is less than calories expended and u lose weight. WRONG....we often forget to factor in other variables like stress and sleep. Of course theres no way to know how THOSE will effect our weight loss, but we keep going on!!! Love the positive attitude, hun! Keep it up and ur gonna hit that goal weight in no time! emoticon Britt

    That's the spirit! a loss is a loss is a loss.... keep going bro you'll get it someday! although I do not quite understand what you are not getting since you have already lost 102 pounds! you must have "gotten" something to get there!

    Take care of yourself! big hug and hope you feel better soon!

    I think week 100 is going to be monumental....all that tracking and hard work deserves something....that being said your numbers this week are good...300 mins at the gym...down almost a half a pound. emoticon

    Your doing GREAT Ken. I really admire how you keep trudging along even if the numbers don't give the answers your looking for. I had a bad week myself, cold that has lingered on hampered by muy not taking some exercise time off. Anyway, you made it through and THAT'S what counts:) emoticon emoticon

    Man, it must something in the stars this many folks (including myself) have found this week to be 'off' -

    And I totally get that 'angry' feeling. I find myself fantasizing about throwing the scale out the second story window and watching smash on the ground, springs popping out of it with a 'smash, clunk, boing!' as if in some crazy cartoon. Though not the loss you wanted, take it and use that angry feeling to wage war against that stupid scale and show it who's boss next week!

    emoticon You've got this!!! Next week will be better!

    Hello again my Spark Friend,

    I am impressed about the 300 minutes of exercise time. At this point in my journey looking at all those minutes sounds like a dream. I feel proud for you regarding your weight loss; every ounce

    I keep reading that a BMI indicator might be the way to go regarding how we are doing on this journey. Although I know that two pounds is a lot more satisfying for the soul than 43.0035 BMI as a measurement. emoticon emoticon

    Keep doing the good work.

    Any celebration planned for 100 weeks? It's certainly worth marking in some fashion. Especially the way you've done it, faithfully recording the good, bad or otherwise.

    It's a loss...

    A number. You're doing great and yes we will be upset by the numbers. I have a weigh in coming up on Tuesday, and I KNOW I am not going to be happy with the outcome no matter how much I talk to myself.

    Sometimes unexplained things remain unexplained, or maybe explained as you identified you're off kilter and hopefully you'll do better next week.
