Weigh In Wednesday #16 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: 234.4 pounds.
My weight this week is: 234.2 pounds. 
So a loss of 0.2 pounds! :-/
Total loss from 1/1/17: 7.8 pounds 

So I feel like this is just a minor victory. I went through so much Easter candy last week it is not even funny. Stupid Reese's eggs! I countered that with lots of walking and hiking, which is the only reason I didn't gain. I truly believe that. Now I am just kicking myself because I probably would have lost a lot if I hadn't eaten so much crap. Gotta get better at that....

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


  1. Hey a loss is a loss! =) And I hear you about the candy....although for me it was more actual food this time...Oh and the cream puffs! Can't forget those! So glad I gave the last of them to my oldest daughter earlier this week for her breakfast! LOL

    1. Yum, Cream puffs! LOL Definitely trying to be better this week.

  2. OK gals-we got this, Rachel and TraceeBee. You are both braver than I posting your weight, but I'll start reflecting on my success and challenges. I refuse to say failure!

    1. You've got this! I know that having this platform to reflect has allowed me to express frustration as well as successes.

  3. You are in the negative range after Easter. That is a huge success!

    1. You are right. It is a success, a tiny one, but one none the less.
