November Weigh In

I weighed in for November at 146 pounds, down .8 pounds from last month’s weigh in.  On the one hand, I was really happy with this as it is the first time since February that I’ve weighed in actually at my goal weight of 146 pounds.  Most of the time I’ve been free lifetime, but I was over my goal weight by a little.  So it is great to be back to goal (I’ve been a bit below it at home but I always weigh a little more at the meeting since I am weighing with clothes).

On the other hand it was a little annoying.  I basically didn’t go down at home during the last 10 days.  The reason I was annoyed was that I ate really well over that period.  I went and did my two sessions of exercise this week.  I did some treadmill.  So, it was disappointing to not really have a net loss during that period.  I think part of it was that I had a really heavy strength training session on Thursday.  Sometimes, that results in a little bit of water retention.  And, while I ate well on Friday I was very inactive because I spent a lot of the day watching Blizzcon on my computer.

October Weigh In

My usual weigh in day is Saturday.  But, I will be gone this next Saturday and the Saturday after that is the day after my husband’s birthday.  I didn’t think I particularly wanted to have to weigh in that day and didn’t want to have wait until the next Saturday to weigh in since that is so far down in the month.

The new week started on Sunday as did the new month.  So, even though we had gone to a meeting on Saturday, we went back Sunday morning just to do the October weigh in. [Read more…]

Unofficial Weigh In

I didn’t weigh in at Weight Watchers since I didn’t want to have to dress for it.  When I weigh in, I wear the same thing and then change at the meeting.  I didn’t want to do that today since I didn’t have to weigh so I didn’t.  I was tempted though because I would have shown a loss.

At home (no clothes), I weighed 146.2 pounds which is down .4 pounds from what I weighed at home at my last Weight Watchers weigh in.  This is notable for 2 reasons.  First, it is the lowest that I have been since having my liposuction.  I think that most of my swelling is gone now.  I sometimes have some during the days, but I’m good in the mornings usually.

I also note that this is my lowest weight in mid-February!  This was my 9th week in a row with a calorie deficit (per Fitbit and MyFitnessPal information). This was also my 4th week back to strength training and 8th week of cardio exercise  It is nice to see those things showing up on the scale.

When I love back at February, though, I must admit a have a pang when I realize I was last below 146.2 pounds then because I was going up in weight.  In early February, I had weighed 140.7 pounds at home putting me back to my post tummy tuck baseline.  By mid-February I was, alas, at 146.1 pounds.  Yes, I was up over 5 pounds in 9 days and I just kept going on.  So glad that the last several weeks I’ve been working on going down and not up.

Overall, this was a good week.  I actually didn’t have as many cardio sessions as usual, mostly because of the day that I went and did all the testing at Dexafit.  This was my best week, though, for strength training so I was glad about that.  I’ll be doing a post soon about what my plans are post-Dexafit testing.

But, at this points, I am just happy to be at my lowest weight in over 7 months.

Saturday Weigh In 9-16-2017

Go figure.  I weighed in today at 146.6 pounds, down .6 pounds since my last weigh in two weeks ago.

In a way, it wasn’t surprising. According to my Fitbit calorie burn info and my food info from MyFitnessPal I should have lost 1.75 pounds.  I think that part of the reason I haven’t is because I started strength training again and, typically, during the early days I will retain some fluids until my body gets used to the workout.  I actually expect to soon have more of a loss show up.  In fact, this loss really only showed up the past few days.  During most of the past 2 weeks, I’ve been up in weight from my last weigh in even though I knew it wasn’t real weight.

September Weigh In

Saturday Weigh In

I weighed today for my official September weigh in.  I was at 147.2 pounds, down .8 pounds.

 

That put me well within free lifetime so I was happy with that.  I had a really great week, both from food and activity and I was happy about that.  Given the stress of the week (hurricane – no water in our house, but constant rain and my routine was disrupted), I was really happy that I stuck with it.  There were a few moments this week when I was tempted to not walk on treadmill or to eat more than I plan, but I mostly withstood those temptations.
