Loss Since April 7: 1.0
Total Loss: 17.8 lbs
Weigh in for DietBet 1 (Jan 28) and weigh out for DietBet 3 (April 23)
Excuse the bedhead.
I was worried about this DietBet. I hit my number at the two week mark, but then I wasn’t losing any more. I also knew I was going to be away this weekend. Friday when I left, I was half a pound over. I decided to just do my best, make smart choices, and track. I weighed myself last night when I got home and thought I was in a good place . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: April 23, ISO: DietBet
an interesting post, via @LoseIt.
While it’s an interesting explanation of what the pro version of LoseIt offers (which the site itself doesn’t explain as clearly) it’s also a very solid look at the reasons I started to struggle with Weight Watchers despite my initial success with the program.
I had fallen out of love with Weight Watchers, and it was time for me to move on. I still recommend it to people who are new to weight loss, especially people with a lot to lose, but I find that most people end up wanting to move on to something . . . → Keep Going: Weight Watchers vs. Calories

And the downward trend continues. Yay.
I’m fibbing slightly. This is yesterday’s number because I fell in a vat of sodium. But I’m glad I WI daily and track obsessively because I know that this morning’s number isn’t real weight. My numbers are slightly out of sync with LoseIt because I started that after I started the first DietBet, but I LOVE DietBet’s weekly reports. I just spent an unholy amount dumping them into excel and analyzing my habits
Stay away from the sodium. OK, that’s not a lesson learned. . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: March 3

WIs for Diet Bet 2 and 3
also known as “I don’t see it in the mirror daily but I definitely see it in the photo.”
This also has to be the first time where the first place the weight (or lack thereof) has shown in my face before anywhere else.
I haven’t officially won Round 2 since weigh out isn’t tomorrow but barring diving into a massive salt vat, I will. WOW. I’m not sure what it was about DietBet that gave me the kick in the ass I needed, but I’m definitely doing Round 3., which starts . . . → Keep Going: DietBet: WI 2

Ahh the early stage “honeymoon”. I know I won’t lose 10lbs in 3 weeks going forward so I’m definitely going to enjoy it. I’d love if I could consistently lose almost 2 lbs/week. This week was a bit odd. I’m sick again and haven’t felt hungry. I actually thought that, per my LoseIt numbers, I’d be lower. But… a loss is a loss.
Had a scale freak out at the gym yesterday. I don’t normally weigh myself there because it’s later in the day, I’m clothed, etc. But when I lose I . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: February 17
11 days back OP
11 days tracking
10 days ( 8 work days) without m & ms although I badly wanted some when I was still at work at 9p yesterday and I had no Cheerios or snacks.
Yep, this is all day by day.
It’s Week 2 so I don’t have the w1 losses, but I’m not using that as an excuse to say “oh fuck it” as in “I’m not losing so I might as well not try”. Even the day that I fell into the bag of candy, I didn’t let it turn into days… and I . . . → Keep Going: Days
As I mentioned, eating out is a stressor for me. Has been since 2010 and honestly, probably always will be. I didn’t bail on lunch Friday because I needed to get out. I used a strategy that a couple of friends mentioned and I’ve used in the past – pre plan. Well, sort of. I was all set that I wanted salmon which a) I love b) I can’t cook. But when we got the menu the only salmon they had on it was char-grill Salmon, organic beets, potatoes, saffron yogurt. The salmon is fine – the other three, not . . . → Keep Going: eating out, weekends and sick, oh my
Had “coffee” scheduled with a colleague in the industry tonight and I was anxious. Not about seeing her as she’s good fun, but smart choices at dinner. I know there are healthier options at Starbucks but I can’t stand the taste of “skinny” drinks as I much prefer soy milk. Well coffee turned into “drinks” and I relaxed when I had an idea of their menu. Or so I thought. At least I could get an idea of the choices from Yelp.
Turns out we were both “watching what we’re eating” (aka every other woman in NYC) and we split . . . → Keep Going: LoseIt while eating out
