Weigh-In Wednesday Week 10

And yet another week has come and passed. I never thought the time was going to pass so quickly during this journey, and more specifically, during the our sprint to May. I’ve been going on this journey for 10 weeks now! That’s crazy to me. Am I the only one that feels the time going by so fast?

After a small food binge, I pulled a small number for my last weigh-in. I was ecstatic because I sincerely didn’t expect anything. I had no mishaps this week and I controlled myself a lot better. In fact, I wasn’t really tempted by much this week. I thought that I would have a withdrawal of some sort, but I got back to business rather smoothly. Let’s see how I did…

My weight loss to date is:

My loss for this week is 8.4 lbs. That’s an astounding number, but I think half of it is water. I think I was still bloated from excessive amounts of sodium and whatever else during my last weigh-in and I’ve finally lost that and then some. I’m not certain, but that’s what I suspect. Between the two weeks, my average is 4.5 lbs and that is not bad at all! πŸ˜€ Woot!

This means I can realistically and safely lose the 9 or so pounds by the time of my birthday. That’s very good because I want to feel my best on that day. I’m celebrating that entire weekend, but I’ve already started planning how I’m going to eat. I know that last year, during my birthday getaway, I threw all my healthy habits out the window. Rebounding from that was nearly impossible for me and I think it led to other things. I have to be careful. I have a month to figure it all out, but I’m open to any suggestions and/or tips. πŸ™‚

Well, my sweethearts, that’s all for today. I hope you’re having an extraordinary Wednesday. For those participating in our Challenge, remember that tomorrow is a submission day. Don’t forget to send in your progress pictures, achievements, measurements, and whatever else. Have a great day!

 

Until next time,

Carolina

        • I’m sorry to hear that. 😦 You use MFP, right? I personally have myself set to a “sedentary lifestyle”. I never input exercise or anything. So what this does is, I’m eating as if I just live a life lounging around on the couch. This allows me have a greater deficit yet it’s forgiving because I don’t have to live up to any active lifestyle settings. On top of that, once a week, I eat as close to my limit as possible without going over. Somehow, that one day does wonders for my metabolism. Also, I make sure to eat something green in every meal (yes, including breakfast). I don’t always, but I do a great deal more than if I didn’t implement that rule for myself. This is what I do and it’s your choice to do with that information whatever you like.

          • I think IΒ΄m eating too little in the mornings which is causing me to be hungry at nights. plus itΒ΄s midterms time now so IΒ΄m under some extra stress.
            I don’t always fill in mfp, havenΒ΄t done so in over a week (while my phone was in the repair shop) but i feel iΒ΄ve been eating bigger sizes after swimming over the last 2 weeks.

  2. You’re unbelievable Carolina. Your total loss and your average are to be admired. To think that you’re focused on more, with a target date of May (and beyond) is great. It seems to me that each week that you progress, you get more energetic. I’m amazed….

    • Wow! I’m speechless. I don’t feel like I’m doing anything special. The way I see it, these are the things I have to do. For you to say that you’re amazed takes me aback. πŸ™‚ I appreciate the kind words and they mean a lot to me because I know these aren’t the kinds of things you say loosely. So thank you. πŸ˜€
