Today’s weight :)

The scale is going back down finally! Really excited about this.

I think the goal for October is going to be to reach a weight I haven’t been yet. So that means 182 or lower. I think that should be pretty attainable in the weeks left of September and all of October.

I also realized today that November was when I hit my 50 pounds down. I’ve been plateaued for almost a year now. It’s okay though, because I’m going to bust into the 170s before the holidays. I’m thinking that will be goal number two: get into the 170s before Thanksgiving?

Starting weight: 235.4

Previous weight (according to summer scale): 193.5

Current weight: 192.7

Alright, I’ll take it. Not bad considering this weekend was a disaster eating and exercise-wise. I may just weigh myself again on Friday to see if my hard work this week is paying off. I have to remember that I’m no longer going to be losing 5-6 (or even 2-3) pounds a week. The scale is going down! That’s the good thing.

So I’m a little mad at the scale right now. It’s getting extremely frustrating that I’m working out every day and keeping within my calorie intake and I’m still not seeing results. I’m just going to continue doing what I’m doing for another week or two and see if the scale goes down. If not, then I’ll try lowering my caloric intake or upping my workouts or something and see if that works. 

So consider this weight a new starting off point. Now, it’s a different scale than the scale I was weighing myself on in SF, so I think it’s off by a couple pounds, but it’s the scale I will be using over summer.

Weight as of 6/20: 193.5

I really hate that I’m back in the 190s, but I think it’s because of this scale being different. I think I may have lost a couple pounds this week, because it did say 195 or 196 at one point last week, but it also said 193 and 194. I have no idea what the heck is going on because it seems like my body is losing 5 pounds then gaining 5 pounds every day. It’s really aggravating.

Goal: Be in the 180s again (according to this summer scale) by July.

Starting Weight: 235.4
Previous Weight (post Spring Break): 189.5
Current Weight: 186.7

Oh yeahhh scale’s going back down what what what HOLLA!

Current Weight: 189.5

Not good. But I wanted to post it on here to hold myself accountable. I weighed myself two Saturdays ago, right as my break started, and I was at like 186. Expected, considering I’ve basically just been teetering around 185 since November. I didn’t exercise every day over break because I was staying out late, trying to see as many people as I could while I was home. I went running once with my mom, but the rest of break was spent running around. It was a really quick and busy break, I really didn’t relax at all. The only time I got some downtime was nights, which I spent transferring all my files from my old macbook to my new macbook pro I got (and needed badly, considering the keyboard was broken on my old macbook and I was using a wireless keyboard and mouse and it would still overheat and turn off).

But that’s in the past. I can’t fix the lack of exercise or overeating over break, all I can do is move forward and kick my butt into gear. You know why? BECAUSE SUMMER IS ONLY 2 MONTHS AWAY. And so is the 12k I’m doing with my mom. Actually, it’s exactly 2 months and 1 day away. THAT’S JUST UNDER 7 AND A HALF MILES THAT I WILL BE RUNNING IN 2 MONTHS. And the most I’ve done is 5 miles, and I didn’t run the entire time. So I need to get back into training, especially since I want to do a half marathon in October. 

I went to the gym this morning before class! I’ve decided for the next few weeks to eat 1500 calories, track it on myfitnesspal, but don’t count the exercise I do and see how that goes for my weight loss. That’s pretty much what I was doing when I lost the first 50, but I was tracking weight watchers points. So I’m going to do 1500 calories every day and the gym M-F and a run Sat or Sun. If I go on a long run I may bump up to 1600 or 1700, just so I feel my net calories is closer to 1200. So we’ll see how that goes! Here’s to progress! I promise, even though it looks like I’m giving up and gaining back my weight, I’m not. It’s extremely hard to lose weight rapidly while in college and dealing with stress, lots of exams and papers, minimal sleep, and going out to bars. I definitely need to cut back my drinking, because that’s a lot of empty calories. But I know I’ll get back to losing again. I will see the 170s soon enough! And I WILL be 155 before my last year of undergrad starts. That’s 30 pounds in 5 months. Bring it on.

Starting weight: 235.4
Previous weight (from December): 183.4
Current weight: 185.5

I was hoping to see a number closer to 183, or maybe even a number I’ve never seen before, because 183.4 is the lowest I’ve been to date. I didn’t exercise enough this week. I’ve been extremely busy with school since next week is my last week before Spring Break, so all the teachers are piling everything on now at the same time. So late nights doing homework leave little time for sleep, and I don’t want to injure myself going to the gym off 4 or 5 hours of sleep. I just need to try and schedule my time better this week because going to the gym really helps me feel less stressed. 

What I’m thinking (and hoping) will happen is that I will reach the 170s while I’m home for Spring Break. Without school I’ll have more time to exercise and not have to worry about projects and papers and whatnot. But I made it a goal to weigh in every Friday, so I’m doing it, even if the scale still won’t budge!

Haven’t weighed in for awhile, sorry about that! Between Thanksgiving and finals and everything going on, I knew my weight was going to fluctuate. So I’m posting this weight to track my progress over this month of winter break :)

Starting weight: 235.4
Previous weight: 184.7
Current weight: 183.4

I’m hoping to enter the new year in the 170s! Let’s try and get to the 60 pounds down (175.4) by the time I go back to school in mid-January. Ready AND GO.

Starting Weight: 235.4
Previous Weight: 190.7
Current Weight: 189.5

Awwwww yeahhhh busted through that plateau yeahhhhh. And this weekend was Halloween (only went out Saturday though!) which consisted of drinking many vodka tonics, and a few sweets. Those might catch up to me later in the week, but it’s okay, BECAUSE I’M OFFICIALLY IN THE 180s! That means I’m only 4.1 pounds away from being 50 pounds down (goal number 2)! HOLLAAAA! November shall be a very good month :)

Starting Weight: 235.4
Previous Weight: 192.0
Current Weight: 190.7

So I think it’s safe to say that myfitnesspal is a good way to keep track of calories and works because I think this week I lost just the right amount of weight. So I’m hoping to stick with myfitnesspal and maybe I’ll be 50 pounds down in the next few weeks! Just 5.7 pounds away…. so close.
