WIW 1/22/14

Earlier this morning I went through the scary experience of stepping on the scale for the first time in 35 days. {Thanks Wii Fit for reminding me.} I some how managed to make it off the scale alive and not broken down in a hot mess.

In 35 days I was able to only gain 0.7 of a pound. This little gain puts me back at my highest weight but thankfully not over that "record". So I'm back at square one and what a perfect time to get started again.

Thanks to my blogging friends {who are turning real life long distance friends IMO} I'm feeling motivated and inspired to get back on the healthy wagon. If you're looking for some inspiration I would head on over to Carolyn's blog Fitnasty For Life, Tammy Jo's blog You Wouldn't Call It A Drinking Problem..., or Ashton's blog A Fluffy Girl because every time I read one of their posts I'm inspired and am wondering why the h-e-double hockey sticks I'm sitting on my ass just reading about it rather than doing it myself.

I'll leave you today with my stats and the knowledge that I have plans to try out a new gym {cheaper!} with a free day pass and to start working on tracking my food. I'll be sure to give y'all an update on the gym situation once I get my big booty there.

Starting Weight {highest weight recorded}: 207.7
Today's Weigh In, Jan. 22: 207.7
Gain: 0.7

  1. Now that you've faced the scale you are set!! That took a lot of guts, and .7 gain is not bad AT ALL for 35 days! That's actually pretty impressive. So it seems you are maintaining your weight well, now just change it up a little and it will start falling off! You can do it girl :)

  2. Girl we got this. I need help making mine fall off too!

  3. Just gotta move forward from here! You have your starting point, and you know what you have to do! .7 is about to be GONE next week! I just know it!

  4. Good luck at your new gym, I hope you enjoy it there! Onward and downward! Oh, I don't listen to traditional country on the radio, but there are a few local country/alt country/Americana bands I really like. You tube The O's, The Whiskey Folk Ramblers and The Old 97's.

  5. facing the scale is the hardest part of this journey! And it is now past you! 35 days and over the holidays with less than a pound gain? I call that a WIN!

    Jump in and go forward from here.

  6. That is good for a month in between. That means you maintained at least. It could have been much worse :)
    Thanks for linking up!

  7. Yes I know I am FOREVER behind! Thanks for the shout-out and yes a real life long distance friend :)
