A Very, Very Late Weigh In, and Update

So, my "first" weigh in was April 2.  This is April 19. I'm no math whiz, but I'm pretty sure I missed 2 weigh in's there.

The first WI I missed was April 9.  We took off at 6am that day on vacation, so I (honestly) forgot to weigh in before leaving.  I actually did weigh in on April 16 but didn't post it.  So here's the not-so skinny on how the past 2 weeks have gone.

Date: April 16, 2012
Current Weight: 248.2
Last Week's Weight:  243.0
Loss:   --- (Gain) + 5.2
Total Loss Since 4/2/2012:   --- None

So what happened?  I took a vacation.  I ate whatever my heart desired.  I did not count calories.  I did not limit myself.  And honestly, the wings, pizza and beer were DELICIOUS. I didn't exercise.  I didn't even walk other than through the Baseball Hall of Fame and a Children's Museum.  But I had fun.  I saw my sister.  I'm happy with that week, gain be damned.

This week has been different.  I've been a more restrictive on what I've eaten.  I've (MOSTLY) stayed out of the leftover Easter candy.  I've cut down on the beer, too.  Also, I joined a local running club and am running again.  After getting over the initial shock to moving my ass again, I'm REALLY enjoying it.  It is so......LIBERATING!

So here's to a better Weigh In on Monday!  How are you all doing?


  1. So proud of you!

  2. throw out the Easter candy! No one needs it.

  3. are you sure your scales are right? Because you don't look like you weigh that much.

    1. You are too kind, anonymous - but I'm afraid the scales aren't all big fat liars. Every scale I weigh on says about the same thing. So for better or worse, this is where I'm at right now.

  4. You are a woman after my own heart. I also took a break around/through Easter and am paying for it today. Thanks for being inspiring and sharing your journey.

  5. Easter didn't faze me, but I don't even want to remember Christmas, or rather the week on either side of it. You had a set-back, not get back on track again.
