My Scale

Week 3 is finished



Just a quick blog today.  Today was my personal weigh-in and I have lost 7 pounds in 3 weeks.  I must admit I weigh myself every single day.  Why?  Well truth is you have days with water weight and what if that falls on my weigh-in day?  So, today was my lowest weight since I started my life change.  It is 1 pound short of where I should be at this point, but not too worry it is a loss!  

I jogged 2 miles on my treadmill, walked 1 mile at an 8 incline, then raised it to 10 for a 1/4 of a mile.  Another 1/4 mile of cool down, followed by a mile on my elliptical.  Total calories burned 650.  I plan on slipping in to some workout clothes tonight and riding my bike for an hour.

Keep on keeping on!!!

You've been so great to visit my blog, and give me encouraging words; I thought I'd do the same. But it looks like you don't need me. You appear to be extremely motivated. What a great job you're doing!

Thank you, my motivation is my past failure. So many times I have set goals and had a good start, then let the scale fail me and simply quit. Every time that happens I add more weight. I wanted to be in the best health of my life when I turned 50 instead I can't stand even looking at those pictures because I was so heavy. Then I gained even more weight after that with breaking my toe and the holidays. I am excited to be ounces away of being back in the 180's. I love words of encouragement, its all about 1 day at a time!!

Cat Cee: I am so glad to see that you are well on your way to your goal. I am still trying to figure out how to turn "wanting" to be different into real "motivation" to be different.

I too weigh myself first thing every morning. I only count my morning weight for anything. And you are right about the water weight. By weighing ourselves everyday we have a better record of where we're at. Or worse yet, where we might not be at! Then we work harder.

I sure wish I could run anything! My max is 1/2 mile and I was DYING! I can't wait to hit a mile jog...and then more.

Keep on keeping on!!!
