{Weekly Weigh In}

Whew! It's been awhile since I've posted and I was seriously dreading this day.

The week I left for vacation I was at 149.2.

We spent endless hours on the road and camping. Saturday-Monday I did pretty good. Then the camping food and snacks presented themselves and I had a hard time resisting cookies, smores, chips and jerky. Blast that food.

We got home Saturday night just before midnight and first thing I did was hop on the scale, with clothes on and saw:

Holy. Crap.

The next morning I weighed myself, without clothes (which is normally how I weigh myself) and saw:



I can't say I was totally surprised, but I was secretly hoping I had gotten away with eating what I did the last week. Sunday wasn't much better, but Monday morning I jumped back on the bandwagon, starting eating right, drank a ton of water and I've worked out pretty good the last couple days.

This morning I weighed in at:


This puts me at just .2 lbs shy of 35 lbs lost total. I know a lot of the weight I had gained the last week was water weight which explains why it came off so fast, but I'm thrilled to have lost everything I gained last week, plus some.

Could I have done better last week? Definitely. Do I have regrets? Not a lot.
I was on vacation with my husband's family that we don't see very often. Although the scale would seem that I did, I know I didn't overly indulge, there was plenty I said no to, so I know it could have been worse... and I dropped the weight back off pretty fast.

It's crazy we are already into August! My goal for this month is to get under 140.


  1. woot!!!!! And yep my motto is enjoy myself while on vacation or whatever and then back to the grindstone when I get home.

  2. Woo Hoo, that's awesome! Keep up the momentum!

  3. I am so proud of you. you have encouraged me to lose weight again. seeing your progress reminds me that i can do it too!
