Official update

Yesterday I did well all day eating-wise. I didn’t end up exercising, I’ve kind of been slacking, but I have water aerobics tonight which I missed on Monday due to my foot, so I’ll definitely be going tonight. AND, I remembered my swimsuit!

I also had my weight watchers meeting last night. I am down 1.8 pounds with an official BMI of 45! Down 5.8 points total. And my official weight is 278.8!!! Finally in the 270’s, and it somehow took less than a month. I was adding up my losses since May 18th, and have lost 10.6 pounds in that time. It’s so strange for me to lose that much, especially since it’s only been about 20 or so days total. But I’m not being unhealthy, and I know I’m not pushing it very hard, so I’m not going to try to justify my loss, or tell myself to slow down. I’m at a good pace right now that I’m very comfortable with, and that’s the key to me.

I also discovered that the walk-it challenge Was on Sunday from 10-2PM. What happened was the woman who comes in on Sundays at 7:30 didn’t know she was supposed to stay later to accommodate the walkers, and stayed until 11:30, then she left. I got there at 11:45. I’m still kind of kicking myself, since I did wake up at 10. I just went back to sleep. LOL. Either way, I did go home and walk the miles for a 5k, and my leader is going to give me a certificate next week, which is kind of cool.

I was excited for a friend last night, who came into the meeting, and as she was leaving before it, she said “I have to quit right now. I’ll see you all in 9 months.” LOL, it took the whole group about 5 seconds before it clicked. It was really cute. Everyone was so happy for her. It’s mostly a group of women, so a lot of moms and grandma’s and they were all really proud.

As I was saying before, I’ve been kind of slacking on my exercising. For the month of May, I exercised 21 days out of 31. So far this month, I’m about 3 out of 9, which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the month, but I’m working on getting back on it. I’m feeling a little frustrated because last week, I was at the point of exercising nearly daily, and noticing that if I didn’t exercise, I kind of missed it. I was also a bit more in shape, but that wasn’t noticeable until Sunday when I did my 5k at home, and really struggled with it, although I’ve done the same amount numerous times without a problem. On Sunday, I was really dragging, and I got out of breath faster, which was unusual. Just goes to show that I was more in shape than I originally thought!


  1. Wooohooo on the weight loss! I've heard water aerobics is fun, just never really gave it a try. Maybe I should check it out. Bummer on missing the 5k but at least you get to make it up! You'll get your exercise groove back just keep at it!

  2. So glad you got to the bottom of the walk mix up and you still get the certificate. I guess living in UT they changed it to Saturday for the church goers. How exciting for the girl who is having a baby. Glad its her and NOT me...LOL I hope you get your exercise routine back before its too late. I am hating that I can't exercise:(

  3. Woot! Congrats on the loss! I find if I don't consistently work out, even in a few days its a struggle to get back to my routine!

    I only did 20 minutes of exercise yesterday, so I have to get back to it today!

    Keep up the good work!
