Super Quick Wednesday Weigh In

166 Comments 8388 views

Is it possible for the week to go by fast and slow at the same time? Part of my is like… wow it’s Wednsday already and the other part of me feels like we haven’t weighed-in in forever.

Anyway, I have to make this one super quick. I’m on my way out the door to squish in a run before Ryan wakes up for school. Now that I have more of a deadline in the morning I’m all thrown off. Plus, my gym is closed this week so I’m missing my regular 5:30AM workouts on Tuesday and Thursdays and my yoga today, and that’s not helping my motivation at the moment.

I don’t have time to respond to lots of comments like I did last week BUT I did want to address 2 things.

  1. Someone asked if it’s too late to join in the weigh in and my answer is OF COURSE NOT! Hop on in. This is just a simple way to keep yourself accountable on the scale IF you find that it’s something which motivates you.
  2. We had about 80 less people weigh in last week from the week before. Now… if you decided that weighing in is not for you, cool, I totally get it BUT if you are avoiding the scale or not holding yourself accountable then it’s unacceptable. Those be some hard words, but it’s true. I firmly believe the only way you fail is by giving up. As someone who was stuck in the yo-yo diet cycle of hell for 15 years I know all the tricks. You get all motivated for a day or 2, participate in a new plan or, in this case, a community weigh in and then it gets hard. You slip. You eat a cookie. You have a hard day and binge on pizza. You grab a pint of Ben and Jerry’s after a fight with your partner. You weren’t perfect so you walk away. I’m here to tell you DON’T DO IT. Stay at it regardless and things will start clicking. Things will start moving in the right direction. I’ll say it again, the only way you fail is by walking away. Don’t walk away, face it and forge on.

That was my little ra-ra speech this week. We got this. I’m forging ahead…

Anyway, here’s my scale reading today.

Down .2 and honestly, I was surprised. I’ve been struggling with the night time snacking. It is my current hurdle and I will overcome.

    I hit 20 pounds this week – yay for me! This is the lowest I’ve been since I gained all my weight back in 2008. It’s been very hard this time and admittedly, I’m beginning to get tired of the effort. But then I think, what’s the alternative? I’m pushing on!

    Up .8. I have not been good about logging my food, and I have had a problem with snacking in the evenings. Just proof to myself that tracking helps. Not a big deal. Today is a new day.

    Down 2.6 pounds. I am still ecstatic as I have just continued to eat right, write it all down (what a difference that has made) and can now slowly add some exercise. We had a long family walk on sunday and I went by myself on monday and tuesday and it feels GOOD to feel my muscles again!! :) Roni, you are so right with everything you write. And it really is all that simple. Having found the right approach, I can finally say I “get it” :)

    It’s my first time commenting on the Wednesday weigh-in. I’m down .3 from last week. My goals this week were getting off of frozen food and getting in more workouts.I’m surprised I was down because I usually gain when I start cooking again.
    See you next week.

    Up a pound from 2 weeks ago. I lost 25 pounds before and it has all crept back on, but I always had trouble going over the hump (180 to 179 or 170 to 169) most likely a mental block but no idea how to conquer that…..

    I’m starting my 5th week of WW maintenance and am down a bit from my goal weight, but it’s been fluctuating a bit while I’m trying to figure out how to hold it steady without gaining or losing… Thanks for your example Roni. I find your help very motivating.

    I am up 1.4 this week. But I am glad I am doing this on a weekly basis. It’s the kick in the butt I need. I’ve been playing with the same seven pounds for nine months, and it’s always like this. Hoping this accountability will help me make better choices this week.

    Lost a pound. To me that was a great accomplishment! I have had a pretty terrible week and really just wanted to eat and maybe have a couple too many adult beverages but I didn’t. I even made chocolate chip cookies (my weakness) but I only had a few not all of them! I am making progress and I intend on keeping this trend going. This is about the only thing right now I have control of. I am going back to WW meetings tomorrow simply because I miss the people at my group and right now I just need some support.

    Down a pound this week! I’ve got my family all eating better and exercising and it’s working well for them too. It takes a lot of time though to prepare food 5 times/day (3 meals and 2 snacks) for us all but then when I weigh in I’m reminded that it’s worth it. :-)

I think I better be hitting the workouts hard. Good luck to everyone else as we continue to ride this roller coaster called weight-loss!!

    “It always seems impossible until it’s done”
    “Try again, fail again. Fail better”
    “Fall down seven times, stand up eight”
    “You are stronger than you thing!”

    I am not sure what I was 2 weeks ago when I weighed in, though I’d guess it was the same. This is a bit frustrating, as I stared doing one of Jillian’s DVDs every morning during the week at 6am. I’ve been doing this for 2 weeks and I do think there is a little muscle/fat trade off happening in the scale numbers. That said, I did overindulge too much on both Friday and Saturday last weekend. NEED to get my weekend eating on the same track as my weekday eating. Thanks, Roni!

    Down a pound from last week, but I’ve been eating out way too much lately, so I’m not displeased with it. I’m just getting back into the swing of keeping an eye on the scale, and I’m trying to shake that “I should be down just because I’m paying attention to the number” mentality. I know I need to do the work AND pay attention to the number!

    I lost 0.2lbs this week which is a weight loss miracle. I spent the majority of the week at my in-laws cottage. I was not doing any cooking so I had to roughly estimate WW points and I really went over points on the wine. Now life is back to normal so I can be more accurate in my point tracking. I am really thankful that I started WW when I did. I only lost 5.5lbs this month but with all the time I spent eating away from home and eating what other people cooked (or at restaurants) I don’t even want to think about home much weight I could have gained.

    Good news is doctor gave me the OK to start low impact workouts like walking and light yoga. Excited and I return to work & a normal schedule next Wed.

    +.9 this week. Still haven’t added in intentional exercise (walk the dog 3x per day right now).

    Spending 5 days out of town for the holiday weekend, but I am not worried. For years, I wondered why everyone else seemed to gain weight on vacation while I maintained or lost without fail. I had a “duh” moment–I will finally admit out loud that I am a secret eater. I buy junk at the drugstore/grocery store, hide it from my husband and eat it when I am home alone, or alone in my office at work. There, I said it. Vacation = little or no alone time, and nowhere to hide my “snacks” so I don’t gain weight like I do at home with the furtive snacking. At least I have a decent grasp on meal portions, so I can focus on this snacking problem. You are right Roni, accountability is key to success.

Still working on balancing food choices. In addition to trying to stay within a calorie goal, I have had great success staying close to the recommended daily sugar intake and trying to keep sodium in check. LOTS OF WATER!

    I was at my goal weight about a year ago. Since then, I moved to the country and lost my job. Not being as active as I once was, having to drive everywhere now instead of walking, I new that I had gained, but when I finally bought a scale and saw that I gained 15, I was shocked. So, this week I have started to count calories again and will start walking a few mornings a week.

    This is my first week to weigh in. I am going through a very stressful time in my life and I seem to think food will make everything better. Two seconds after I eat it I’m kicking myself but it seems to be an endless cycle. I’m doing this to try and be accountable because I know this is so unhealthy. I plan to exercise more this week and have healthier snacks. Also when I’m having a bad day food will not make it better.

    Well, I’m up .8 from last week. I’ve actually been very good this week on food and exercise and I suspect I would have had a loss BUT I ate a crap ton of salt yesterday and I think I’ve got some extra water weight at the moment. So, I won’t let that get me down because it means I can just see progress next week as long as I keep up the hard work. Happy Wednesday!

    I’ve done many different plans the past few years without actually joining. They worked but only temporarily because I didn’t have anyone holding me accountable on the scale. So I finally made the leap and officially joined weight watchers and attended my first meeting today. I decided to go on Wednesdays all because of your Wednesday Weigh In posts. I was down 1.8 this week and I’m so happy I have someone finally holding me accountable every week. I also plan to check in here too, through the good and the bad. I’m forging on!

    Down 0.7! Thank you Roni for this statement ” if you are avoiding the scale or not holding yourself accountable then it’s unacceptable.” I didn’t weigh myself Wednesday morning because I ate greasy eggplant parm for dinner on Tuesday and felt guilty. But after I read your words of encouragement, I weighed myself Thursday morning.

    I lost 1.8 pounds this past week. I’m pleased with that. I have out of town company and have been eating out a lot. Before I weigh in next time, I will have been away for the weekend and have eaten out every supper but one. I’m planning strategies of how to manage this and have come up with drinking more water, upping my exercise, exerting as much control over the food I do prepare for the week and to be careful of portion sizes when out and to chose my meals wisely. Wish me luck…

    I got on the scale last night since I had that amazing 3.8 loss and thought it was because I weighed first thing in the morning. So I got on last night and it stayed exactly the same…136.0. I was so excited that I had to get on this morning and was shocked to see 135.8! What is going on here?! I love it, keep it coming off!

    100 calories each day this week and see what happens.

    I am down 1.8 but that was for 2 weeks. I didn’t weigh last week. I had a fall at the gym and tripped over the back of the rowing machine and hit my face on the floor. I ended up with a swollen nose, cheek, and a big black eye but no broken bones!!!
    I was determined not to let this fall get the best of me. I don’t know which was worse, my pain or my pride.
    I did get back to the gym 2 days later and even did exercises on the rowing machine again! That was machine was not going to take me down!

    Staying pretty stable BUT I don’t like where I am. I feel out of control and disgusted with myself for gaining back 14 pounds I lost. I’m starting to get uncomfortable again, my clothes are snug, and the biggest… I just don’t feel sexy. My husband said that he can tell he’s gained some weight in recent months and isn’t happy with that so we’re amping it up. Just started a doctoral program and back to teaching so time is of the essence. I need to just get up in the morning and exercise but 4:45 is so early. I have to be to work at 7:00 and am here most days until 5:00. I’m exhausted…

    I didn’t change again this week. This is 3 weeks in a row and it is getting a little frustrating. I did have a girls weekend away, plus was on my period this last week so I am happy I didn’t gain like I normally would. I also cut out sugar this week. I have been working on this by cutting back and now I have cut it out completely. Being a bit of a sugar addict I think this will help my weight. We will see if my weight goes down with this. I already feel better and don’t have cravings or slumps in the afternoon energy. We will see. I am still working out just not the running I was doing well training for my half marathon. Hope to be out of the 170’s by next week :)

    I just broke a fast from a 7 day juice the day this started so i was down 17 lbs that day. next week i was up 9 lbs and following week down 1 lb and this week down another 2. Others talked about sharing waist measurements so Starting Waist Measurement (SWM) and Current Waist Measurement (CWM) is what those inches refer to above.

The thing is, I am not overweight (I was though lost 20lbs 2 years ago) but its difficult to get into the swing of things again I want to tone up lose about the last 15 pounds and live a healthier lifestyle. All easy written on paper, I think we all know a lot harder in practice. I’m taking baby steps and this is my first step declaring my weight and goals for all to see!
