Weigh-In ... Not Proud, but Some Good News Too

Today's Weight: 190.5
Loss/Gain: + 2 . 0
Total Loss So Far: -40.5 lbs.

This is a day I'd rather not post my weight. Somehow I went from a two-week vacation, eating out and only gaining about 7 pounds to now showing an almost 10-lb gain from my lowest weight. I also realized as I updated that my total loss so far is just over 40 pounds, that I am now ten pounds away from my happiest moment of losing 50 lbs.


But my journey is an honest one, so I've posted my weight. I'm facing the scale and seeing that it's time to get it together.

That being said, I do have a few news snippets to share:
  • Last night was a big NSV for me...I chose to eat an apple and half a cheese stick as an evening snack instead of the homemade chocolate chip cookie and milk I wanted.
  • I have been drinking a little more water daily.
  • I am beginning to take more seriously my food and am working on a plan for healthier eating/meal ideas with a close friend of mine who has been successful at weight loss and maintenance.
  • I started the Couch to 5 K running plan again. I've only ever ran regularly on a treadmill and it's been over two months since then. I am now running in my neighborhood and doing my jogging intervals at the pace I used to run on the treadmill, thus...the reason for starting from the very beginning. I not only want to run again, but at a strong pace while outside.
So, I'm very unproud of my weight creeping up, but I am taking measures to correct the situation.


  1. Leah, you know you can do it! And I know it's harder than just saying "Do IT!" But it's time to get back on the plan. Great job with the NSV!!!

  2. I know it ain't pretty, but you are taking steps to have the scale head back in the right direction. I am hopefully right there with you this week! Horray for NSVs!
