Weigh In Monday

I am pretty pleased with my weight loss this week. This morning I weighed in at...200.6! That is a total weight loss of 3.8 pounds. I am very happy with that considering I had a mistake this week and had to make up for that. Last week was difficult with physically with my workouts, this week was difficult with my diet. It wasn't just my mistake with the tortillas, it was other bad decisions, and difficulty with self-control. I don't really want to go into it because I am disappointed in myself but, more than ready to move on. I thought I could live by the saying, "anything in moderation" apparently, that is not the case with me. I am not ready to give myself that freedom because, once I start, I can't stop. It obviously wasn't that bad right, I did lose almost 4 pounds but, the point is, I don't like the way I feel about my bad decisions and I don't like how much harder I have to work just to make up for my bad choices. I don't mind working hard, that's not it at all, it's the working hard to make up for something that I chose to do and shouldn't have.

So moving on...did you catch what my new weight is?! 200.6! Yes, I am SO incredibly close to being in what they call "onederland." My weight will no longer begin with a 2 but a 1! It is so close I can taste it, I can feel it! And when it happens I will be taking a picture and posting an entire post on being a person in the 100's.

I met with my trainer on Friday for my 1 month evaluation. My trainer was SO proud of me! She took my measurements and I lost on all of them except for my right calf. My right calf stayed the same. I lost an inch and a half off of my shoulders, off of my waist, and off of my hips! Not an inch and a half total but an inch and a half off both. I am proud of myself for what I have done over a month and can't wait to see what happens in another month.

All my pants are getting too big for me. I found a couple of old pairs that fit and a couple more pairs that almost fit. It excites me because it's almost like getting brand new clothes! I don't want to buy any new clothes until I can't get a way with wearing what I have. That will be a while. Luckily summer is coming soon and shorts, capris are a little easier to be flexible with as far as too big goes.

My 6 week weight loss challenge weighed in today for week 1. I am in 2nd place right now! So close to first, I just need to work a little harder and make sure my diet is 100% perfect! I am determined to win the challenge. Mostly because it's good incentive to keep up with what I am doing. The competition is honestly fun for me. I can't even remember the last time I competed for something.

I think that about covers my week. How was yours? What do you do to help you win the battle of self-control?


  1. Dang - you're really moving this week! Keep it up. Glad that most things were down, weight and inches. YES!

  2. Go Holly! I am so proud of you! Don't be so hard on yourself you've been doing such a great job! And if you didn't slip a little bit every now and then you wouldn't be so successful at what you are doing! An inch in a half is a lot too!! Keep up the good work!!!

  3. Congrats on the loss - that's awesome! :)

    As for the "everything in moderation" mentality, that may come in time. I think it's admirable that you recognize that isn't working for you right now, and put it on hold. Go, you!

  4. Oh I hate it when I do that. Making up for bad choices is the worst. Great job being in 2nd in your challenge.

  5. A couple people weighed in late and put me at 4th place out of 15. Not so good any more.
