Birthday week. It was a given that I’d gain a couple pounds, we ate at Olive Garden Sunday (Valentine’s/Birthday) and then last night I went to see Black Panther (awesome!!) and had a pile of chicken tenders along with cake. So like, yeah… But still, I stayed within goal 5 of 7 days (along with still working out) and yesterday morning, I was still weighing in at 278. So four pounds just because I ate food yesterday!!?

I mean… yeah, I’m in better shape than I’ve been in a long time, but not losing weight when staying (mostly) within my calorie goals and working my ass off, totally blows. I know… I lost a lot of muscle over the last year, and I’m building it back up, but still.

Still a bit frustrated. I worked my ass off this week and only lost 1 pound. Like – no full on cheat days, ate at my calorie goal most days, only had a couple days where I was over by 100-200 calories, but that should have been more than cushioned by the extra workouts. So…. 1 freaking pound really just pisses me off. This is why I quit going to the gym last time, because I quit losing weight. I mean, in theory, I’m gaining muscle, so I’m going to stick it out for the duration of the challenge and see if I start dropping again. But it’s really hard to stick to something that’s supposed to be making you healthier when it doesn’t seem to be making a positive difference.

On the plus side, I really like doing TRX, and doing the routines isn’t totally killing me anymore. So that’s something.

I know that starting an exercise routine can cause water retention, and to be fair, I had a couple bad days, but I took a friend out for her birthday and honestly, due to the exercising, I felt like I was starving all week. Made it very hard to stick to my goals. So sucks that I didn’t lose anything, but at least I didn’t gain either. On to the next week. 🙂

This week I started a “Transformation Challenge” thingy at my gym. Because we ended up having #snowmageddon2018, today ended up being the first time I could actually get to the gym (other than Monday’s quick weigh-in/measurements appointment). In the short-term, I’m probably going to be hating myself, but long-term (hopefully), this will help motivate me and help me tone up some. Today, for example, we worked on arms – if I can move them tomorrow, it will probably be a miracle. On the positive side… I got down on the floor and back up again without falling over or wanting to die. This is progress!! XD

I’ve been sick most of the week and though I didn’t have any major cheat days, I was over my goal almost every day.  Particularly the last couple since I was eating cough drops like candy, and though individually they don’t have a lot of calories, it adds up. So I’m a little disappointed, but not super surprised that I didn’t lose anything. At this point I’m pretty miserable, so I’m going to be comfy any way I can – even if it means eating a couple extra bites of stuff.


Weekly Weigh-In: Week 37

Week 37 Current Weight: 285

Pounds Lost This Week: 0 (gained 1 pound)

Total Weight Lost: 105 pounds

Considering that on December 26th I weighed about 9 pounds heavier than my last weigh-in, I have absolutely no complaints about being up 1 pound this week. I ate all the food… and it was GOOD.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wishing you a joyous new year!!

As excited as I am, I’m almost positive I’m going to gain back at least a few this coming week. Not that we are having a giant Christmas dinner or anything, but still won’t be counting much either for a day or two. But that’s ok. Anyways… Have a marvelous holiday!!!

Despite struggling mightily the last couple weeks, I have officially dropped just over 100 pounds since April!!! Honestly, I’m surprised I’m doing as well as I am, because my food choices the last few weeks (since Thanksgiving) haven’t been all that great, and I’ve been over calories quite a bit (hubby bought another box of Krispy Kreme – what was I supposed to do!!?), but I’ve also been adding short workouts at home as well. And, I do mean short – less than 10 minutes for now, but it’s extra movement, which hopefully I can build up to more. So whatever it is that I’m doing, it’s working, so just going to keep trying to make better choices and moving more when I have the extra spoons. Otherwise… celebrating!!
