Weigh In Wednesday!


Weigh In Wednesday
Linking up once again with Ash & Heather.
And now with Nina!


 It's Weigh in Wednesday again and today, I've found myself wondering why I do this. I know I need the accountability, and that in itself should be enough- but still, why?

Why have I put myself out there for all the word to see (even though no one actually reads it unless I do a linkup with a group that has already been put together) and why have I put my "big number" out there for all of you to gasp at? It's a huge number.  To me.  It's several huge numbers.  That I promised myself that I would NEVER see, 7 years ago.  And yet, here it is. And it's been around for way too long. Here she be...
I've lost 3.6 lbs since last Wednesday, and a total of 6.4 lbs since starting on January 2nd.

That's a good loss for two and a half weeks.  And my LoseIt! App is set to suggest calorie intake for a 2# a week loss (suggested healthy loss)... so I guess I'm doing better than suggested.  I still have a long way to go and still need to get back in to a regular exercise routine.

What motivates you to weigh in every week and post a weight that you're ashamed of? What motivates you to exercise? What makes you accountable for the workout? SOMEONE needs to call me every morning and tell me to get my ASS OUT OF BED!

Happy Wednesday all! Hope you enjoy this midweek hump!

  1. 6.4lb loss since the beginning of the month? That is absolutly fantastic! I never seem to manage a 2lb loss but I try to average a 1lb a weeek loss.

    Well done!

    1. I'm just starting, so I'm sure its that "water weight" that always comes off first. Gimme a week or two and it'll slow down significantly. Lol thank you!

  2. That is an amazing two week loss! Honestly I know where you are coming from, I struggled at the begging and the only motivation I had was me looking at myself in the mirror. But, as the weight started coming off and I started looking and feeling better and that helped push me along. I would be happy to help you stay on track if you need! Send me an email!

    1. Thank you! The mirrowlr has always been deceiving. Its not until I saw photos that I honestly had no idea I was so big. I thought I looked okay (by no means did I think I was healthy, of course) and I just didn't get it. Christmas photos reinforced my "need" to lose weight, but I still find myself needing more "umph". I would love the extra help!

  3. What an awesome two-week loss!! I started almost exactly where you did (228), and it took a LONG time before I was comfortable sharing my weight. But the best part about sticking with this journey, is that you're only going to get smaller from here. Good job lady!

  5. Great job on the loss! I can't tell you why we do this, why we keep putting ourselves out there, I sometimes wonder the same thing... but I do know that our minds can be a bitch sometimes and we have to be stronger to silence them. You're doing great and you're certainly not alone... we're all in this together!

    1. Thank you! I hope to silence my bitch of a brain quickly. Maybe I need to lift weights to be stronger than it? Lol thank you for stopping by!

  6. 2 things keep me accountable each week...the first is my blog, where I DO post the numbers and just to let you know....mine is larger than yours, so don't be ashamed!
    The other thing that keeps me accountable is attending my weekly TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group and getting on the scale.

    I'm going to start following...hoping you will do the same.

  8. It's so so easy to get caught up with the numbers game. But, everyone has a point where they say enough is enough and you can only improve from here. Excellent loss in 2 weeks time though so you are off to a fantastic start! Keep it going even on days that you don't want to. Just think of exercise and eating right as part of your job.!
