Concerned Excitement

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

This morning was my weekly weigh-in. I wasn't expecting anything huge, in fact, I had come to accept it would be a no loss weigh day primarily because I have been losing between 1 and 3 pounds very consistently and was less diligent this past week with both my fruits/veggies and exercise.

Low-and-behold I lost 5 pounds this week. Don't get me wrong, this is FANTASTIC. I'm super excited, especially because that marks the big 5-0. I am 50 lbs. down from my initial weigh-in 5 months ago.

Here's the thing - and please note this is not one of those "woe is me. it's so hard to be losing weight" complainy things - I'm a little concerned that this is not a healthy weight loss. I haven't done anything wrong or in bad taste, but this is extremely quick and it worries me that it is not something I will be able to maintain. A one week, five pound loss five months into my journey seems erratic. Especially when I was losing motivation and falling into an exercise rut (which, btw, I definitely am in) I'm not sure where that amount of loss came from.

So while I am super stoked that I have lost 50 lbs, I am at the same time concerned that I am not doing something correctly or in the healthiest manner. But I guess next week's weigh-in will help determine that too.

Happy Hump Day, all.

    Don't worry - the AVERAGE should be around .5-2 pounds but individual weeks can show zero or even 5 or 10. It is okay and YOU are doing great.

    don't stress about it because it will add pounds just enjoy the 5 pund weight loss every now and then you may have a 5 pound week I would be more concerned if it kept occurring this far in your journey
