HYC Check In

Happy Tuesday, ya'll! Today I weigh in at 229.6 which is nearly a 1 pound gain. Um, hello, we're going the wrong way! I was hoping the miracle I have a cold so I'll only have tea, water, fruit and toast diet would miraculously shave off 6 pounds, but alas, no such luck. Most likely because although that was the bulk of my diet, I supplemented it with peanut butter, dark chocolate, and oh yes, that rogue burger and fries.

This week I missed 2 scheduled work outs due to illness. I had also wanted to improve on journaling, that also went down the tubes when I fell ill. So, we're back at it this week. We hired a partner for me at work so no more crazy hours, which means I should have no problem getting to the gym. And, I bought myself a 2 new pairs of gym pants, since my others are falling off me. And the 2x was too big! Oh, I am a 1x in pants - at least through this mail order catalog, I was. That's a great feeling!

Welcome to March - it is my birthday at the end of this month, and my goal was to reach 220 by then, so that I can celebrate my birthday by saying "Hi, it's my birthday, and I've lost 70 pounds. Please pass the cake." If I don't make it, I won't be crushed, but it is doable if I stick to my plan, methinks. that gives me 3 weigh ins to get there. That would be a loss of 3 pounds per week, so maybe that isn't doable - my body doesn't shed that quickly. So, I'm aiming for the moon, and hope to reach the roof, or however that saying goes.

yaay for smaller pants!!

I don't know if you'll get to your goal or not (having recently used up my clairvoyance powers*g*), but you're SURE to be in the neighborhood of it. What a fantastic birthday gift for yourself!

sorry to hear about your gain, but that really isnt very much. and at least you know that it is due to not making it to the gym as much and not eating your normal meals.

I really hope you reach your goal by your birthday! but if not, I still think you are doing a fabulous job and you should be proud no matter what.

Tori said...

Hooray for the smaller pants, wow that's a big one!!

Also it's great that you have a goal for your birthday.
If you never aim for anything you'll never hit it!!

Oh yea I found you through Heather's blog!

I wouldn't sweat the 1 lbd gain. That could just be water retention from the illness (Im glad you're feeling better btw). Besides, I heard that your metabolism slows way down when you are sick. Im sure once you are back in the swing of things it will come off.

Happy early birthday to a fellow March baby! I hope you make it to your goal.

Weird things happen to weight loss when you are sick. I think your body holds on to everything just in case it needs it to fight off whatever you have. Hopefully you'll feel better and what ever you had will leave and take a few pounds with it!

YAY for smaller pants!!
