Weight Loss Journal, Day 12: Weigh-In Wednesday

Last week's weight: 258 lbs

Today's weight: 257 lbs

Well, it's not the huge weight loss I'm used to seeing at the beginning of a new diet (when I was on Weight Watchers I lost 7 or 8 lbs the first week). But it's a loss! And a sustainable one. Let's look at the factors here:

1) I didn't deprive myself - I still ate what I wanted, the entire time. Like the pasta I had at the Melrose Diner last week...and the pasta I had on Saturday night as well...and the pasta I had on Monday (okay, so this was a pasta-heavy week). Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Sushi. You get the idea. Could I have lost more if I'd pared down? Of course! But I still lost because I didn't completely overdo it all day long, all week long. In the daytimes I stuck to small meals and made sure I had healthy carbs + protein, which equals more fullness with less food. Plain oatmeal and a glass of milk. A hard boiled egg and carrots. Greek yogurt and fruit. You get the idea.

2) I ate only when I was hungry during the week and on Saturday as well. Saturday was easier because we were busy all day. Not so much on Sunday, though. Sunday was an "off" day, though I hadn't planned it to be so. I need to work on keeping busy because that seems to help a lot. Still, one off day out of 7 is not too shabby.

3) I definitely could and should have moved more. I had planned on getting more presentable workout clothing over the weekend but that didn't happen. Maybe this weekend? (Are you reading this, hon?) I know that once I start incorporating regular exercise into my routine the weight will start coming off even more easily.

I'm really happy that the scale moved in the right direction without me starving myself or feeling resentful in any way. Now I know that it can be done. Which is a good thing to know.

You're doing great. Losing weight is such an emotional roller coaster for some people. Well, it is for me. It's just HARD work!

Anyway, a couple friends and I started a blog together at to share our journey.

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
