Wednesday Weigh-In

Today's weight: 189.5

That right folks!  I wish I could say that it was because of my own awesomeness, but, in reality, I caught some sort of virus.  I've been super sick for the past few days.  Not much of an appetite, and when I do eat, it usually comes back up.

I took the kiddos to the park a week ago, and decided to try Vala out in the swing for the first time.  I'll let you be the judge if she liked it or not.
It's a little hard to tell.

Here is Abby telling Vala how awesome swinging is.

I'm amazed how big Abby looks compared to Vala here.  When did my baby become such a big girl? 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Wednesday Weigh-In (on Thursday!)

So I weighed myself yesterday and then completely forgot to post it!

Here it is:  195

Down a pound since last week.  Even though it's only one pound, I will take it. 

What I did this week: 
  • Tried to focus on eating smaller portions.
  • Only ate fast food once!  (Baby steps.)
  • Played soccer and walked 2 miles.
I still need to work on working out more.  There is a 5:30am spinning class at my gym on Wednesday and Friday mornings.  I'm thinking I might give it a try. 

I will be back tomorrow with something that is not weight related!

Wednesday Weigh-In

So sorry that I missed this last week!  I had my days all mixed up, because I had our annual Girls Weekend with my 3 besties from college and didn't get back home until late on Monday.  I didn't realize I missed the weigh-in until Thursday and then decided to just wait until today to do it.

Here is the ugly truth: 196.0. 

Ugh.  Back at the beginning...  I had a feeling this was going to happen after Girls Weekend.  We ate a ton.  Especially lots of candy.  We did go on a 3 mile walk, but that wasn't enough.  Also, since I didn't get to go to the grocery store like I normally do, I ended up eating fast food for lunch 3 days.  And didn't work out at all. 

I feel so frustrated.

Wednesday Weigh-In

Today's weight: 193.5

Down 3 pounds since last week!  I was pleasantly surprised when I stood on the scale.  It is so nerve-racking when you are waiting for the scale to stop thinking about how much you weigh.

This week I:
  • Didn't eat any fastfood.
  • Cooked dinner at home and packed my lunch every day.
  • Only drank 1 soda.
  • Only ate ONE piece of cake at the surprise birthday party we threw for my mom.  That is monumental!
Physical activity this week:
  • Played soccer on Friday in my indoor league.  Still staying clear of the gym.
I know I need to do more in the physical activity department.  I downloaded Couch to 5K on my ipod, so I am going to start doing that.

This was an encouraging week!

Wednesday Weigh-In

I have reached a point where I don't recognize the girl in the mirror anymore.  When someone tags me in a picture on facebook, I untag it as fast as I can.  If I see someone from high school while at the store, I hide.  I don't want anyone to see me like this.  I don't like looking at myself like this.

I constantly tell myself I'm going to get serious about eating right/exercising tomorrow.  Or Monday.  Or the 1st of the month...Right after I finish off this bag of cookies or tub of ice cream.  Then I will start. 

I have a gym membership, but I hate to go because I feel too fat to be there.  How dumb is that?  Isn't that what the gym is FOR?

I have never understood why I never make any progress and I think it's because I don't have any accountibility.  There is only so much I can do alone.  I need someone else to know about these goals.

So I am going to commit to getting rid of this weight.  Every Wednesday I'm going to post how much I weigh.  This scares the crap out of me, and I'm extremely embarrassed to put the number on paper (interweb?).  But maybe that's a good thing.

So here it is:                    196.5

My goal weight is 145.  I don't have a specific time frame I would like to lose the 50 pounds in.  That has been a huge problem of mine.  I set unrealistic goals (20 pounds in 2 weeks?  Yeah, I tried to do that once.  Obviously didn't work.) and then feel devastated when I don't reach them.

Wish me luck!

Life has been crazy lately, thus the lack of posting.  Tomorrow I will be back with a new thing I want to do every Wednesday.  Until then, I'll leave you with my new favorite picture of the sisters.
