Weigh In Wednesday #8 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: 235.2 pounds.
My weight this week is: 232.6 pounds. 
So a loss of 2.6 pounds!  :-)
Total loss from 1/1/17: 9.4 pounds 

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I stepped on the scale this week. Last week was kind of a bust eating wise with Valentine's Day, sickness in the house, stress of the mice and then adjusting to kitties, etc. So I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped on the scale and saw the loss! 2.6 pounds, I will take it!

On the exercise front, well.... similar to last week. Nothing. I think I am battling depression and so it is hard to get motivated to exercise. I did go out with the kids and Bill and walked on Sunday around the park and I was running around playing basketball with Jacob last night outside.
  • Wednesday: Nothing
  • Thursday: Nothing
  • Friday: Nothing
  • Saturday: Nothing
  • Sunday: Nothing
  • Monday: Nothing  
  • Tuesday: Nothing
With Lent coming up, I am contemplating giving up ALL sweets and processed sugars to maybe help with my weight loss. It will be hard though as I am a chocoholic. We shall see.....

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


  1. Another awesome week for you! I forgot it was Wednesday - I'm all screwed up because of the kids having Monday and Tuesday off! And, I won't go on the scale now after I have eaten all day - I do it first thing Wednesday mornings. I'm sorry to hear about the depression....I hope it gets better very soon! (((hugs)))
