Hey everyone! I hope you don’t mind if I keep this weigh in short and sweet today. I had a really long day at work and my eyeballs feel like they are ready to pop out of my head. Thanks a bunch.
First let me get my stats out of the way.
LWW (last weeks weight): 148.5
PL: – 1
This week marks my 7th weigh in. By now I was hoping to be under 140 pounds but looks like I am still exactly where I started. You can see all my weigh ins here. Basically, my weight has gone up and down… then up again… then down…then up. You get the picture. This week I am down 1 pound. No cause for a major celebration but I did feel a touch of excitement that I did not gain.
As I said last week, I feel like I hit a plateau and all that I have been currently doing has led to maintaining my weight instead of losing it. However, I did step it up with exercise this week which I am really happy about. I said that I needed to sweat and that is exactly what I did. I made the time to run on my treadmill and do some strength training 3 times. I felt awesome afterwards! I know my goal was 4 days but I was still happy with 3. This will continue to be my focus until it becomes habit. Exercise is so important to breaking through this plateau. I found this article useful about exercising over at Cooking Light.
One of my main motivations this week was my husband decided to join me in making exercise a priority. With both of us working full time exercise just fell off the priority list over the years. It happens to the best of us. Anyway, just seeing him get his clothes ready the night before, so he can work out in morning, really motivated me to do the same thing. We also talked about a plan to keep exercise a part of our weekly routines. So I feel pretty good that we are going to make this work. I am trying to convince him to do the weekly weigh in with us but he may need a little more convincing. Wouldn’t that be fun!
So how about you? What are your stats this week? Also let us know if you have any tips, triumphs, or challenges you would like to share.
