Weigh In Wednesday #1

calories for the weekI decided it would be best to just do a weekly update on my diet, aka lifestyle change, so that no one gets overwhelmed (including me!). I am trying to weigh myself just once a week, but I have not been able to resist a few check ins. These are done while wearing tons of clothes, so they’re not very accurate; but they let me know that at least I’m not gaining. This is good for calming down my weight freak outs and motivating me to not binge eat. Today was my “official” weigh in. I lost 4.2 pounds this week! I am so excited, because it really motivates me to keep going when I see that first week big loss.

This first week has not been the start with a bang that I usually go for (discipline wise), but I actually think that is probably a good thing. I typically start a new diet with some sort of fast, based on the premise that after that I would be grateful for any food (even healthy food). I greatly suspect that it is extremes like this that get me in trouble in the first place. I’m not saying that I won’t throw in a juice fast, master cleanse, et cetera- just that it doesn’t feel right at the moment. Maybe in February?

skinnier JillianThis week has been about controlling my portions and not snacking. I haven’t been perfect. I have only done two work outs, when my goal for a week is four. I have gone over my calories three times, but still have been under what I would normally eat each day. I also haven’t started my Happy Herbivore plan yet. That will be my big goal for next week. Her plans give you 1,200 calories a day without having to count, which is so fantastic I don’t even have words. I don’t know why I sabotaged myself by not doing it this week. I’m using another old picture for motivation, the one that I posted on the left. Or maybe I’m just wishing I had a drink in my hand?

Knowing that I have you all watching my back is a big help! Thank you so much 🙂 I have bl3ss3dfitn3ss helping me out- does anyone else want to join us? What are your goals? I am very serious about losing weight and getting back in shape to run. I want this Spring to be a great one full of gorgeous runs, and I would love to be able to go off my high cholesterol medication. You can still follow my eating and exercise on my Sparkpage, if you’re curious to see what’s really going on over here. You don’t have to sign up for anything, you just follow the link and click on “shared food & fitness trackers”. It’s about halfway down the right hand side. I’m hoping this week will be less embarrassing than last week.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
