Weekly Weigh-In: Getting Back To It

by agirlandhermutt on January 20, 2014

Gooood Monday! This whole 3-day weekend totally works for me. I’m sitting on my couch watching DVRed episodes of The People’s Court and loving it. By 2p I had worked out, grocery shopped and cleaned up my house. Holy heck where did that energy come from?!

I was supposed to check in on Friday with my first official weigh-in and well…it just didn’t happen. Oops! I’m still figuring out this whole schedule, but I will get there.

So let’s get to it!

First, lets talk about where I was starting. My last weigh-in on the blog was all the way back in 11/26. I think you can see where I am going with this. I’ve been weighing in each week, but its been up and down. And then Christmas came. So did plenty of delicious frozen drinks, mashed potatoes, bread and every carby that I love so much.

My 56.6 weight loss crept up to be only a 49.4  It was actually a higher that that at first, but I realized that quite a bit of it was water weight and I just peed that off. Sigh…that is a gain of 7.2 lbs since Thanksgiving!

That was not ok. Slightly embarrassing too!

So on January 6th I weighed in and got back to work. It kind of felt like I was back at square one. But then it dawned on me. No I wasn’t. I never stopped working out! I was able to get through my spinning class without dying. I was lifting like never before. I just had to get back on my plan and eat right. I did just that! And then some.

The result?

I weighed in on Friday with a 3.6 weight loss!

I’m back to 52 lbs down…again!

You know, I declared my phrase of the year to be Consistent & Persistent. Boy, that is certainly going to need to be the case.

This girl ain’t no dummy. I know I will hit walls . I have to baby my knee sometimes. I will come up on obstacles. You know things like booze and cheese.  I will fall. BUT! I have to get back up. I have to keep pushing forward. I have to stay the course. I MUST BE CONSISTENT & PERSISTENT.

My goal isn’t to just lose weight. It is to be healthy! I want to wear anything and everything I love. I want to be athletic. But most of all, I just want to be the best version of myself.

I welcome any and all challenges coming my way.

Oh, and just because I know we all enjoy a nice comparison shot. Here is the BF and I at his holiday party exactly 1 year apart. I was about 18 days into my weight loss adventure in 2012 and then 1 year and 18 days into it!

Yep, I can do this. Absolutely. Who is with me?!
