The Moment of Truth is Upon Me (gulp)

Okay… it’s Saturday morning. I’m awake. I’m dressed. I’m ready to go weigh in.

Let’s just hope that if I’ve gained weight over the last five weeks I haven’t gained much. I don’t mind having to re-cover a little bit of ground. I just don’t want to have to re-cover a lot. Know what I mean?

Fingers crossed. Seeing as I’m such a content whore, I’ll probably be posting again within the next hour. Hoping for, if not good, not too terribly bad news.

I am Going to Weigh In Tomorrow

It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to a weight watchers meeting and weighed in.  It’s been over a month now.  The last weigh in was on December 13th.

Tomorrow will mark week number 20. I’ll admit it, I’m nervous. I’m afraid that in the two weeks that I was off the wagon I did so much damage that all of the progress I made leading up to that wonderful 37.6 number will have been erased, and two weeks of being better but not great will not have shown any results.

It’s not about numbers. I keep saying that, and I honestly believe it. It’s just that the meaningless number I saw on December 13th was a really good meaningless number. I don’t want that meaningless number to be lower tomorrow.

It’ll be okay. Even if the number is down to zero, it will be okay. I will lose weight. I will be healthier. I will reduce my risk of having a heart attack. The number isn’t important. How I feel is important.

Weight Watchers Weigh In Results

Holy crap guys, trimming my finger nails worked!

I was down a whopping 4.6 pounds for a total of 37.6. I did not see that coming at all! I mean we had sub shop take out dinners twice this week. Twice! I will say though that for most of the week I was just too damn busy to eat. Even on my Thursday telecommute day, the calls and emails just kept coming all day and I didn’t have time to over do it at lunch. Then yesterday I probably lost 2 pounds due to all of the exercise walking back and forth from my desk to my boss’ office.

My goal for December is still very much to not lose any ground due to holiday feasting. I just want to stay level if I can. This weigh in though. I’m really surprised. I’ll probably be up next week, but for now? WOOHOO!!

Weight Watchers Weigh In

We just came home from our weigh in. After being sick for most of the week and being in a state of constant hungry horror, I was down 0.4 pounds for an eight week total of 28 pounds. I was afraid I’d be up this week, so I am happy.

Hopefully the cold will be gone next week and I’ll be able to get myself exercising again, and that should help me drop a little more. For now I am 0.4 pounds closer to being skinny. (hehe)

Jen didn’t check in last week because she was too sick to go. Today, she was down 1.2 pounds! Awesome work, Jen!

Weight Watchers Weigh In

It’s weird. Weight Watchers starts their week on Sunday. We originally went to Saturday meetings, but last week we went on Sunday for whatever reason. Turns out we cannot be entered into the computer today because the system would see that as two weigh ins in one week. So we did it pen and paper style.

Holy Crappola! I can’t believe it!

I was very good this week. There were times where I felt I was over doing the portions, but I stuck to the plan faithfully. After being up a pound last week I wanted to make sure I got that pound back. I guess I was successful.

This week I am down 5.8 pounds. Holy Crap! Five and Eight Tenths Pounds! Sheesh!

It’s weird though, I don’t feel it this time. The other weeks when I’ve had big losses I felt it. I had more energy, I didn’t feel quite so… sluggish I guess is the word. This week, I don’t feel any different than last week. Good or bad. I guess this is to be expected, but I was really thinking I’d have little to no change.

Jennifer, my beautiful bride lost again too! She is losing 0.2 pounds a week, like clockwork. It doesn’t sound like much to some of you, I know, but the reality is gigantic. I am so incredibly proud of her. She is doing an amazing job!

For me, I am down 5.8 pounds for a six week total of a humongous 26.8 pounds. Wow!

Weight Watchers Weigh In

We pushed off our weigh in for one day so we could go leaf peeping yesterday. So our Saturday weigh in happened on Sunday. I was feeling good about myself over the week, but I didn’t expect the results to be this good.

I was down six pounds for the week, for a grand total of 22 pounds. I hit the 5% mark. I am pretty surprised I hit it this fast. I expected that I would be starting to level off by now, especially after only losing two last week. Six pounds, however, is more than I’ve lost in any one week since the first week.

Even better, Jen lost again too and she hit the 10 pound mark! WOOHOO! I am so proud of her. She’s sticking with it and getting results. She’s amazing.
