Wednesday Weigh In

in Weigh Ins


Last Weigh-In: 366 LBS

Today’s Weigh-In: 356 LBS

Loss for the week: -10 LBS (this is a “don’t get excited” number… I’ve gained a lot in the past two weeks, this number reflects losing retained fluid, not lost fat.)

Starting Weight 02/01/09: 632 LBS

Total Weight Lost Since 02/01/09 : 276 LBS


Some good things happened this week:

  • I have tracked my food and exercise for two consecutive weeks.
  • I only binged twice. A significant improvement over the prior week’s 11 binges.
  • I went to the Alabama game and didn’t overindulge.
  • I started my run training. I ran 7.25 miles last week! :-)
I’m going to keep up the good work!

10 pounds is 10 pounds. I’ve had weeks where I messed up, gained, and then lost double the next week. I still had a mental celebration about it and it felt GOOD!

Journaling everything is so helpful to me. Doing Weight Watchers, its a necessity, and some days its kind of a drag (like if I binge- I’m embarrassed to write it all down) but it helps me find my weak spots, my trigger foods, and in posting my menu at the end of every day to my blog, I am accountable to everyone who reads it.

Anyway, enough rambling! Great loss this week!

I agree with Shawn…..don’t knock yourself for losing 10 pounds. I know that when I’ve been following you, when you have a good loss you say it’s “water”…give yourself a break. Enjoy the losses and work on the gains…..

Thank you, Stacey

Looking forward to the day you blog about your first ran half-marathon. Eventually, it’ll happen …

Stephen Vinson November 24, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Yes it will. Thank you, Janis

Ok. Dumb question…. How do you know if you’ve lost retained fluid versus fat?

Stephen Vinson November 24, 2011 at 4:06 pm

We base it off calories consumed and burned vs. weight lost. To lose 10 lbs of fat, I would need a 35000 calorie deficit for the week, and we know I didn’t do that.
