Wednesday Weigh In {Week 14}

Hey y'all!

I gotta be honest, I had no intention of "weighing in" this morning. I was feeling pretty down on myself after the way I handled Easter. We had three different celebrations in one day and and I ate at every single one of them, and I ate a lot.

When I woke up this morning I made myself get on the scale. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment but I had to know what the damage was.

I've lost .8 lbs. since last week. "Shut the F*ck Up!" That's exactly what I said when I read the scale. I know, not very ladylike, but whatever! Then I got off, and got on again. I even took two pictures.

I really don't know how I pulled that one off.

I've been really down on myself regarding the pace that I'm losing weight. I'm just barely sliding by week after week, meaning I"m barely losing anything at all. Sometimes I"m all "oh well, at least it's a loss!" Which yea, that's true, but 14 weeks in and I could be a lot closer to my goal weight than what I am. Like, I could be over half way there by now and it sucks that I'm not.

So I guess now, I have to decide -

Am I going to slide by week after week after week after week?  Am I going to drag this on for more than a year? Because at the rate I'm going it will take me approximately 62.5 weeks to reach my goal weight. That's not cool y'all. 

Or am I going to step up my game? Am I going to make even better choices about what I put into my body? Am I going to really make an effort to exercise? Am I going to do what I know needs to be done in order to meet my goals in a reasonable amount of time?

I wish I had a distinct answer right this minute. I can sit here and say I'm going to work my ass off to make this happen and at a quicker pace but then I'll be right here next week with a .6 lb. loss.

I'm going to try to do better. I want to do better.

I'd love it if you'd link up your fitness/weight loss related posts below!

  1. keep it up!! one bad day doesn't ruin everything you've already done!!

  2. That's almost a pound gone! I am new to your blog. Thanks for the comment and encouragement on my blog. WE CAN DO THIS!

  3. i am always amazed when I don't think i've done well then I lose. looks like something was working for you great job keep it up.

  4. i know you're disappointed but you keep losing every week and that's awesome!

  5. Don't be too hard on yourself, that's self-defeating. Thing about the positive choices that you've made and focus on those. I recently started a weight-loss plan myself, and one thing I've learned in the last month is that inches are more important than the number on the scale. While I haven't lost a ton of weight, the inches are coming off at a much quicker pace - which is great for my health AND for my mental outlook. Not sure if you've taken your measurements, but give it a shot! You may discover some newfound inspiration there!

    Whatever you do, keep plugging away!
