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
Loss Since March 10: 1.6 lbs
Total Loss: 16.8 lbs
I could look at that and be disappointed, but I’ve instead chosen to focus on the last two weeks where I got back on track.
I was so good through March 10 but then some things popped up and I wasn’t. I still tracked every mouthful but I wasn’t drinking enough and made some less than ideal food choices when rushed/stressed/out of my comfort zone. Within the last two weeks I’m back in my own environment where I can more easily control my choices, on a more normal schedule (goodbye . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: April 7 and Accountability Redux

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
and not BNL’s One Week which is in my head for some inexplicable reason.
I have officially tracked everything for one week. I can’t remember the last time I did that. I’ve tracked about one week with a day or two missing because I didn’t want to face it or some other excuse, but not this time. I really think my head is finally back in the right place to finish this.
and maybe it’s no coincidence that I’m down 6.2 this week. Hello water weight but I’ll take it.
Huge thanks to Britt, Jess and Robby for kicking my . . . → Keep Going: One Week
May was a so so Month #GoTheDist, wise. With all of my workouts input, I ended up with 36.7 miles on the bike and 39.03 miles walking. The latter is definitely helped by the miles walked last weekend and in DC two weeks ago (~14 in both cases). At the same time, the bike mileage was hurt because I wasn’t in the gym as much.
2/3 of the way through #GoTheDist Q2 my stats are as follows:
Q2 mileage: April: 31.42 bike / 35.8 walking May: 36.7 miles bike / 39.03 walking Q2 total to date: 68.12 bike / 74.83 . . . → Keep Going: Off the Course: #GoTheDist
I like “wench” better than “wh0re” but when it comes to the scale, both are true for me.
I can weigh myself daily and it doesn’t make me (too) crazy. I’ll even weigh myself multiple times. I just need to know where I am. Non-scale cues don’t work for me especially since I have yet to learn to properly use a measuring tape. Yes, I’m special at times.
Weighed myself this morning knowing it would be up because a) couldn’t bend my fingers and b) overnight cankles. Hi. Crazy salt in Knorr Rice Sides buffalo chicken, anyone? Saw . . . → Keep Going: Confession: Scale Wench
no, not involving blogging more. I randomly have the best of intentions which then fade fast.
Challenges of the activity variety. Back in February I mentioned a challenge that seemed interesting. Of course, I did nothing with it. Lately, I’ve been watching Fat Girl vs. World’s #GoTheDist challenge and I decided if I didn’t join I wouldn’t do it. So I signed up. I tracked nearly 520 miles this yr. of exercise from April to December. I think I can do 750 next year. Maybe my knee will even strengthen to the point where I can get past the . . . → Keep Going: Challenges
