Weigh-In ... Getttin With It Update #6

Friday's weight: 203.0
Loss/Gain: +1.0 lb
Total Loss So Far: -28 lbs.

I'm busier than all get out, thus forgetting to post my weigh-in yesterday. It was a very 'off-plan' week.

I'm learning lessons about how our eating habits can be so easily affected by our daily schedules. I'll write more later, because I'm very upset with this 2.5 lb gain over the last two weeks. I know that PMS has had something to do with it, but I'm also noticing some other things going on while I switched to working full time.

Be assured though that while I'm frustrated that my challenge is getting thrown for a loop I am not giving up. I decided this morning that I WILL stick with my challenge for these last two weeks and see that scale get past 200 by May 21st.

In the meantime, here's my update for my Gettin With It challenge.

  • First off ... I want to see at least 10 pounds lost - Beginning weight is 205.0. Another gain and currently only down 2 out of 10 pounds. You can imagine my frustration with this.
  • Take my mutli-vitamin and calcium daily. No. I think I only took it once if at all.
  • Drink 64 oz. of water daily. No.
  • One sweet treat a day. No, but usually no more than two.
  • Eat one fruit or veggie with each meal. No, but I know I got at least one in a day, if not two.
  • No snacking if I'm not truly hungry. This was better than last week, but there was still snacking going on when not hungry. Larger meals kept me filled up for most of the days.
  • Exercise at least 4 days a week. YES! I got up and worked out four mornings this week before work. This is the silver lining on my cloud this week.
Thanks for checking in!


  1. Thanks for giving me an honest look at your week. I'm just, today, starting my weight loss journey. I'm freaked out and in need of honest direction. I love your weekly goals section!! Awesome!!

  2. Great job getting up and exercising 4 days last week!

    I think anytime our schedules change it throws us for a loop. You'll figure out soon enough how to stay on your plan, while working full time.

    Drink your water, girl!

  3. It is understandable to have things take a back seat when life gets busy. Just make sure to take time for yourself as you will be more available to everyone if you have some Leah time!!

    You are doing fine - you will get all those goals met!
