Weigh-In Wednesday Week 05

Can you believe the first week of the new year ends today? It’s crazy how the time flies! I can’t believe that one week ago I was gorging on food and wine and not two days later, I was already paying the price. On Friday, I stepped on the scale to gauge my progress and I was shocked to see that the scale had moved up! I vowed to myself and to you guys that I would get it together. Let’s see if I did…

I’ve lost a total of:

Once again, MyFitnessPal rounded my number up. I lost 4.6 pounds this week!ย The number by itself does not reflect the hard work I put into this week. I increased my workouts to an hour now. I’m drinking a lot more water.ย According to MFP, it took me 2 months to lose these same 20 pounds last year. I have done nothing different except for exercising at home instead of a gym.ย  I’m resisting the bit of wine that remains in the bottle. I’m making better decisions and focusing on the things I can do today, for tomorrow. Trust me, I’m feeling the muscle burn from all the things I’m doing. It feels GREAT!

Tomorrow is the start of a new week for all of us. Tomorrow is another chance to improve and do better for the next week. I look forward to whatever progress I make, big or small.

Next week is day one of our challenge. I’m really looking forward to that. I hope you are too. Anyway, have a happy Wednesday!


Until next time,

  1. wow congrats! thanks for reminding us about the challenge. I will need to get myself ready for the challenge starting next week!

  2. You’re rocking it! Anyone following your blog (and the challenge) knows that you’re leading by example.

    • Aww, thank you!! ๐Ÿ™‚ This blog, and those who read it, has kept me motivated and accountable. Before, if I had that extra helping or whatever, it’d only stay between me and the scale. That’s not the case anymore and it has surprisingly helped. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. 4.6 shows a lot of hard work!

  4. 4.6 lbs is great. You are doing awesome!

  5. Thats a fantastic loss do you log your water intake on mfp?

    • No, I know I drink enough water. I just had to increase how much I drank in order to flush my system of the alcohol and excess sodium.

      I also don’t input my exercise into the system. Last year, I became obsessed with negative net calories. I made myself sick. Instead, I just eat under my limit, exercise as usual, and go about life. It’s definitely been paying off.

      BTW, do you have MFP? If so, what’s your username?
