Weighing In

Well hello there! Guess who's back?!

It's 9pm on Friday and I'm sitting down to write this blog post that has been a long time coming. Just call me grandma I guess because I'm happy to be in my pj's finally reconnecting with my blog. And I'm excited that I'm going to be linking up with two great link ups.

First up, Weigh In Wednesday! My last time linking up with July 30th. And I guess it's safe to say I "fell off the wagon" since then. It's frustrating to know that I've made absolutely no progress since that last weigh in. In fact, I have gained and have reached a new highest weight. But I'm not throwing in the towel yet and I have no where else to go but up (or down) from here!

Height: 5'7.5''
SW: 208.1 213.6
July 30: 207.5
November 13: 212.7
Change: +4.6

Raising the bar (in the wrong way) is a hard pill to swallow but I'm moving forward. I lost almost a pound from the time that I weighed in at my highest. And hopefully I see about four more pounds fall off before the new year.

Which brings me to my next link up!

The lovely Carolyn started a link up so that anyone pledging to get #fit4fifteen has a place to find support to reach their goals. Be sure to check out her post here and link up if you're joining us!

Like I said, I want to lose 5 pounds before the start of 2015. This can be accomplished if I stick to the plan which might need some rethinking now that winter has set in here in Wisconsin but overall is still holding true. I have a home run goal that I would be ecstatic to reach but it would take me on point every day. And I'll be honest, I'm human and I don't think that's possible for me. I'm going to enjoy some Mountain Dew here and there. I'm going to indulge in some Red Lobster (tomorrow probably actually). And I'm going to enjoy the holidays with the special treats that we only have once a year. But despite all of that, I can still see progress and end 2014 in a better place than I am right now, at least 5 pounds lighter.

Are you getting #fit4fifteen? Do you join a gym for the winter months or do you tough the weather to continue exercising outside?

  1. Yay-- you're back!! Obviously I can sympathize with the suckage of a back weigh-in. Now, at least you know what the damage is, which is better than pushing things aside (BEEN THERE HI). So glad to have you joining #fit4fifteen :) BUT, I would challenge you to not sell yourself short before you even start! You said in your post that you "don't think that's possible for you," which, to me at least, sounds like you're kind of already giving yourself permission to fail. Why not push as hard as you can for your lofty goal (which, yes, will require making hard decisions), instead of already admitting defeat? You CAN do these things (!!!), but you have to put in 100% effort to get 100% results :)

  2. Hello there! Found you through the #fit4fifteen meet up. I'm right there with you on the weight loss goal before the new year. I had a backslide as well earlier this fall and I really want to be back at my lowest 2014 weight before the year ends. Thanks for sharing your experiences, I'm looking forward to reading more of them!

  3. I'm doing #fit4fifteen too! I like that you have realistic goals that you can definitely accomplish over the holidays. I think this link up is going to be great to keep us accountable during the holidays. I mean even if we don't fully meet our goals, we'll still be better off than if we had no goals at all. :)

  4. Those cheddar biscuits from red lobster = yummy! Just try to do moderation for the seasonal goodies so you don't sabotage all your efforts! You got this! #fit4fifteen visitor!
