Weigh In

It’s time for another weekly weigh in. As far as eating goes, I had an excellent week once again! I didn’t eat any fast food and, since we don’t buy any unhealthy groceries, I ate nothing but healthy meals and snacks all week. <—I am really hoping that I can repeat this phrase each week.

Well, there was the pizza that we had on Friday night while hanging out with family. I didn’t go crazy as I would have in the past, so that was pretty encouraging.

I was able to stick with intermittent fasting all week, and it was actually pretty easy. Of course, there will be the late night temptations, but they didn’t overtake me as they have in the past.

I was able to get in more workouts during the week, and I am getting closer to getting back on track after that shoulder injury threw me off so much! I did a few more Tae Bo workouts, and I also was able to return to my “marine workout” (minus the push ups). In fact, here is a video that I did one day last week after my first interval training session in a few months:

As you can see, I have been consistently making videos of my meals, workouts, weigh ins, and other things that come up regarding health and nutrition (or New Jersey accents) – so make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel. ;-)

I didn’t have time to record a weigh in video this morning, so I just took a picture of myself on the scale and then recorded my thoughts on the drive to work.

Here is the video from my weigh in, and then to the historic numbers…

And here is a direct link to the video on YouTube, in case you are reading this via email.

I have become a lot more active on YouTube (I’m posting daily videos now), Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, so be sure to connect with me there. I plan to post a lot of small updates, health tips that I learn, good articles, and other things that don’t warrant a full blog post, onto those sites. Be sure to leave comments so I know you’re there. Yes, I will bug you about it until you comply! ;-)

Just to recap, last week I was 237.4. This week I hope to put a lot of distance between myself and the 240s! It’s time to see some new numbers now. Here are the numbers (if you want to see the details for all weeks, just click here)…

Now On To The Weigh In

Week 0 (First Weigh In) – 287

Week 4– 276.4

Week 8 – 266.6

Week 12 – 258.6

Week 16 – 256.0

Week 20 – 258.0

Week 24 – 253.8

Week 28 – 248.0

Week 33 – 250.2

Week 37 – 246.0

Week 41 – 234.0

Week 44 (unofficial) – 247.8

Week 47 – 237.4

Week 48 – 234.8

I can’t really complain about a 2.6 lb loss. I did see 234 back in week 41, but so many things happened after that, that I don’t even remember getting that low. As I said above, I started back with my interval training, so as I get into a good routine with those, running, and the DVDs, I expect to see even better results.

I feel like I am starting to get back into a grove, and if ‘Big Mo’ decides to get on my side, I may be able to see great results!

My 48-week weight loss total is now at 52.2 lbs, and 57.2 lbs from my all-time high.

Over 50 pounds lost in just under a year, I’ll toast to that! Literally, I have a glass of wine in my hand as I type with the other ;)

Thanks Jessica! I’m hoping to get that number to at least 60.

Nice on the weight loss keep up the work! I used intermittent fasting and it worked like a dream. I choose to do it three to four times a week depending on if there was going to be something like a bar-b-que or a lot of drinking on the weekend. It requires discipline like anything else but it really works. You look at your calories as an allotted amount for the week instead of per day.

Congrats!!! I’ve started walking more now that we’re moved in. My general plan is to try not to gain much or anything throughout the holidays and start hard in January to lose weight for FinCon13. :-)

Thanks Crystal! At least with that plan you’ll have 8 or 9 months to reach your goal. :-)
