Weigh-in Day #11

Shoot, I really meant to get this out on Friday this time around, but things got in the way, and I let them derail me.  I suppose it really speaks to my commitment level right now.  I need to step it up.  I keep finding excuses to cheat or put off actual commitment till tomorrow or next week or whatever.

A funny thing happened this weekend though.  My wife told me that she has decided that it's time for her to get committed to losing weight or getting healthy might be a better term.  She's resisted any efforts of mine to rope her into my quest over the last few months that I've been doing this.  I've been hoping that with me supporting her and her supporting me back, we might be more successful.  But, until now, it seemed like it wasn't going to happen.  Maybe now that she's decided to go for it, I'll be able to stick to my plan better.

This past week, I've been a lot better with my exercising, but pretty dang crappy with my eating.  What did that get me?  Here's my weight from Friday morning:

That makes me up about a pound from last week.  So, I'm more or less holding steady.  Kind of weird considering my terrible eating habits over the last two weeks.  I think I've gained two pounds in that time, when I probably should have gained ten.  I guess exercising better makes a difference.

I'm really trying to kick up my preparation for my marathon in October.  So, my exercise levels will be good.  Now it's time to get back to eating right, so I can get that whole package together and really pump up the weight loss.  I'm going for it this week.  Come Friday, I'll be down.  We'll see how much.

How about everyone else?  Doing better than me, I suspect.


  1. Well, this was a frustrating week. I kicked ass in so many ways, I ate right, I exercised lots. I met my calorie goals every day (actually was 100-200 calories below my max every day) I only got in 7.5 miles, but I did do 2 workouts (Bikini Body Mommy Day 3, and Guts and Butts Thursday). Then, this morning, the scale showed me 141.8. I know that 1 pound fluctuations mean nothing, but not a single ounce lost, and in fact a slight gain this week? Again?! Very frustrating. I am blaming hormones but it's really, really frustrating. I was so close to getting past 140 and for the second week in a row when it should have been in reach, it didn't happen. I'm going to do more exercising, and keep on top of my calorie goals, but man. It's hard to stay motivated right now.

  2. No, Big, I am not doing better than you. I am back up to whre I started in February. I'd say I was a loser, but I am not losing anything. I am a gainer and a complainer, and if I don't change course, I am just going to be dead. Maybe I need to post a picture of the Grim Reaper everywhere so that I can equate food with death. I know I sound dire, but the reality is being this overweight mean my heath will decline drastically as I get older and some things are irreparable. Sorry to be a downer, I'm just discouraged. I am thinking about going back to a Body For Life type program.
