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.
*sigh*
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.

    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!!!

    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!
