Weigh-In Week #6 - Biggest Loser Summer Challenge Week #3

Friday, July 30, 2010

Work has been mad crazy this week and while I typically like to post my weigh-in results on my weigh-days (Wednesdays), I just didn’t get around to it this week. It’s Friday now and I have a little more time to devote to my SP blog.

Although I usually LOVE Wednesday weigh-ins, this past Wednesday, I was feeling just a bit apprehensive and worried when I got up. There was just a moment of hesitation before closing my eyes and getting on the scale. For that brief moment, I ran through my head everything I ate and drank the night before when hubby and I went out partying with friends.

I know, I know, I can hear you all now, “YOU WENT OUT PARTYING THE NIGHT BEFORE A WEIGH-IN DAY?” OY VEY!!!

Our friends had some friends in from out of town and they wanted to party. What could I say? Certainly not, “Oh I can’t, I have a weigh-in tomorrow”. SERIOUSLY??? If you thought that, then you don’t know me very well. You see, as much as I really want to lose weight and as much as I am committed to my program, I refuse to miss out on life and good times because I’M ON A DIET! NOT A CHANCE!

So, for a brief moment, I prepared myself for what I may see on the scale when I opened my eyes.

Needless to say, I was rather shocked! Although I didn’t lose any weight from last week, I didn’t gain any either. Having said that though, it’s rather odd that it is the exact same weight as last week – not an ounce higher or lower. Hmmm…..

Having to post a zero loss on the Sisters in Sweat Biggest Loser post was really embarrassing. I feel like such a loser (and not in a good way) when I’m the lowest loser of the week. It’s hard not to get discouraged when there are others losing 10lbs and more. Thank God those moments don’t last long.

So, I continue to work on my program by eating healthy and staying within my nutritional goals and getting out everyday and exercising. On that note, I didn’t get to exercise as much this morning as I typically do.

A couple of weeks ago, I started incorporating some jogging in my morning walk. This morning, I was so sore (and still am) it took every ounce of energy and strength I had just to walk my three fur babies, definitely no energy for jogging. I had to take some advil when I got back because I am so sore. I’ve been dragging my @$$ ever since getting back from yesterday’s walk/jog.

One part of me is thinking that I would like to take it easy this weekend but the other part of me is thinking I’m just being a woosie and I just need to work through the pain. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.

Well, I have to get back to work now. Have a great weekend fellow sparkers and remember to take care of yourselves.

    You are a success!!!

    Partied the night before and no weight gain? Way to Go! You're my hero!

    Hey, that's what this program's all about...learning to stay on program 80% of the time and allowing yourself fun and indulgence 20% of the time to keep life interesting. The only drawback to indulging is it takes longer to reach your goal. Drats!
