Weigh In Wednesday #5 of 2017

So one of my 2017 goals is to lose 40 pounds by the end of the year. This is a necessity for me, as in the last few months I have gained 15 pounds. That is not good. I want to be healthier and feel better about myself. 

In order to keep me accountable, I am hoping to come back each Wednesday to share my weigh in and my successes and failures from the previous week. So let's hop to it and see how I did this past week, shall we?

My official starting weight (on 1/1/2017) was: 242.0 pounds!
My weight last week was: 237.6 pounds.
My weight this week is: 237.2 pounds. 
So a tiny loss of 0.4 pounds!   

I felt that I had a good week eating wise. But I guess not. I do know that I didn't drink near enough water like I did the first 2 weeks of January when I had the bigger losses. This past week was another stressball as we were still dealing with van and insurance stuff. We ended up eating out a couple of times and that probably didn't help either. I have got to get back on track. Just feeling frustrated at myself right now.  

On the exercise front, I wasn't able to do a lot as I was exhausted this past week. I think the stress of everything has been hitting me hard. I know that I should but I just can't bring myself to. 
  • Wednesday: Really quick 1 mile walk (better than nothing)
  • Thursday: Walked 1.6 miles outside for 33 minutes
  • Friday: Nothing
  • Saturday: Nothing
  • Sunday: Nothing
  • Monday: Nothing  
  • Tuesday: Nothing
So there you have it. Not a great week whatsoever. I am disappointed in myself.   

If you are trying to lose weight in 2017, how is your process going?  


  1. I had a rough week also but I'm working on getting back on track this week! Shake it off and start again :)


  2. By my math you are down right at 5 pounds which is 1/8 of your 40 pound goal. If you look at it that way instead of looking at the "what ifs " it means you have 11 months to finish 7/8th's of your goal. Averaging 3 pounds a month you will get there. Great job!
