Weigh-In ... Hot 100 Update #9

Today's Weight: 183 . 0
Loss/Gain: + 2 . 5 lbs

I have only a few things I'll say about this.
  1. Yes, I over ate at Thanksgiving, but I haven't as much since I've been back.
  2. I seriously am not sure what's going on with my body this week.
  3. I'm embarrassed and did not want to post the weight.

I could've understood a maintain better than what my scale has been doing this week. It's weird. I could nit pick and think, "oh, it's this or that", but really it's just weird. One of those weeks where I don't understand what my body is doing.

I'll admit it's also moments like this that I wonder if I'll ever reach my goal. However, the one thing that has kept me going on this journey is that I refuse to give up this time. I'm determined to make it...so I will keep going.

On a happy note...last night my husband and I shared these words:
Me: I love that you love me even though I'm still big.
Husband: Funny you should say that....because...did you used to be a lot bigger?? (and he always loved me the same back then too) *big hug and kiss*


Have a nice weekend, everyone!


  1. Sorry about the gain. But you put it out there even though you contemplated not doing it and that is a good thing!

    What a cute thing your husband said :)

  2. Sorry about your gain. I had one too. We just have to keep on going. It is hard- but we can't quit. I have no doubt you will reach your goal as long as you don't quit. Give yourself a hug and get back to it!!!
    Your husband is so sweet!!!

  3. Dear Sweet Daughter,
    This is just a delay for you in reaching your goal weight. I think you did much better than a lot of folks!
    And, yes! Husband is a wonderful guy and I'm glad he's in our family...

  4. Never feel like you can't get to goal. Always keep trying because the alternative is much, much worse. You know that I never reached my magic number, but that's okay. The lifestyle is the important thing.

  5. Your hubby is wonderful to you!! That is really frustrating, but sometimes we just can't pin a gain on something specific. I would often see a gain a few days after I had eaten more than I knew I should rather than directly after. Make sure you stay well-hydrated and try to get in a few more minutes of exercise - those two things will help!
