Weigh-In ... It's Not Over Yet

Today's Weight: 209.5
Total Loss/Gain: 0
Total Loss So Far: -21.5 lbs.

After the emotional week I've had I'm okay with this maintain. In fact, last night I told myself, "You know, I'm exercising regularly, I feel better and I'm not quitting. If I see a gain or a maintain tomorrow I'll just keep going." I wasn't upset, nervous, stressed or anything. Just accepting what will be will be and I will keep going no matter what the scale shows.

Earlier in the week I was stressing out because I wasn't going to meet my November goal of reaching 199 lbs for the Hot 100 Challenge. I didn't want to have to reevaluate my goals, because to me that meant being a failure again. However, I've decided that if I see any loss this month I will be happy with that and I can still work on meeting the ultimate goal of losing over the holidays.

It's not over yet, folks! I will get this weight off and learning all the stuff about how I've felt inside is really something I'm glad to be experiencing, even if it may hurt sometimes.

I bought lots of fresh veggies and got out my notebook this week and started journaling my food again. I will lose this weight.

Have a great Friday everyone! I'm off to substitute in PE today. Whee!!!


  1. Leah, you are anything but a failure. I know you aren't saying that you are a failure in this post, but I felt a need to tell you this. I think you are doing pretty darn awesome. Don't let a 'maintain' get you down. Today is the start of a new day and a new week. Just make it the best day/week ever.

  2. I look forward to hearing about the new week? Are you going to journal? Maybe I should offer to do it with you!

    I borrowed your playlist idea. It's so cool.

  3. You didn't gain and like GeorgiaMist said, you are only 10 pounds from "onederland" You can to this and I hope that you can stay strong and focused. There are a lot of people who are rooting for you - including me!
