Weigh In Wednesday: July 2

Before we get down to Weigh In Wednesday business, remember how I mentioned Friday that I stepped outside my comfort zone at work? Well today I take that a step further and could really use some positive vibes and your fingers crossed. And hopefully not too soon after today I'll be able to fill you in on what's been going on one way or the other.

Now onto the real business here, Weigh In Wednesday. I'm maintaining my highest weight which isn't the greatest thing to say but it's also not the worst. I'll be honest and just come right out and say it, I haven't really been putting any effort into this whole weight loss/healthy living thing. It sucks but it's the truth.

In addition to my own scale telling me that I'm tipping the BMI charts into being obese {isn't that a slap in the face?!} I had my yearly check up with the doctor Monday and she too reminded me of that lovely little fact. Thankfully my doctor didn't go ape shit on me that I've made no progress since the last time I saw her. I don't think I would respond well to that. She did talk to me about what my plate should look like, how much of each food group I should be eating and all that fun stuff. And without nagging me about she made it clear that I need to work on shedding the pounds.

With all of that said, I'm not giving up. I won't ever give up on myself.

Height: 5' 7.5''
SW: 207.7
Last Week: 207.7
This Week: 207.7
Change: none
Total Loss: none

My goal for next week is to see some movement in the scale {obviously a loss}. I hate seeing that I'm back at the beginning and my progress shows nothing. I think I'm going to join Heather in taking measurements on the first WIW of the month, starting next month. {Or sooner than that if I get my hands on a tape measure before then.} Hopefully then I'll see progress in another way besides the number on the scale.

Do you take monthly measurements to see results in other ways besides the number on the scale?

  1. Losing weight is hard!! But we are all here for you!! Can't wait to find out what is happening at work!

  2. Fingers crossed for you today (and eyes too LOL)! and a no loss on the scale is better than a gain any day! Keep up the good work! Measurements are GREAT! I usually take them the first Wednesday of the month as well but I did forget today. Hmm need to do that!

  3. Agree with Desiree, no loss is better than a gain. You've got this!

  4. Using one of those long flexible tape measure things to check your inches is helpful. Especially because at some point your weight may not change, or even increase due to muscle, but your inches will be changing.

  5. No loss is good! It's hard to get your head in the game in start to get on a roll, but you can do it!

  6. Losing weight is hard. Just hang in there and don't give up :)

  7. Have you tried drinking insane amounts of water? Sometimes that helps. I started my weight loss with the 17 day diet, its worth looking into.
