Weekly Weigh In: Week 3

I was determined that this was going to be the week! The week that I had the nerve to post my weight and a picture and all that instead of just posting what I'd lost/gained during the week. When I got on the scale (aka. My Wii Fit) today though and saw I'd only lost a pound, I decided that maybe today wasn't the day. Maybe next week will be the day. Or the week after...

It's discouraging, after all the work I put in this week, to see that I only lost a pound. I know, a pound is a pound and I should take it happily. And maybe I would if I only had 20 or 30 lbs to loose to be at my ideal weight. Even my goal on here though, which is to lose 85lbs off my starting weight by December, won't have me at a healthy weight...just a healthier weight.

I don't even have the luxury of pregnancy as an excuse. In fact, I didn't gain any weight while pregnant, and was 23lbs lighter after giving birth than I had been when I got pregnant. Why? Because the pregnancy actually regulated my glands and hormones more than they had been in over 7 years. Pregnancy had regulated my glandular issues more than any medication had been able to. It was great! Once no longer pregnant, I managed to keep my weight down...until I stopped breastfeeding. Then my tumor caused my prolactin levels to shoot up way too high again, and in less than 3 weeks I gained about 20lbs. Seriously? Arg!

I'm not back on my medication for my tumor, and my thyroid medication has been increased again, so hopefully the weight will keep coming off. Hopefully I'll be able to work up the nerve to post my weight and pictures on here at some point soon. Hopefully I'll reach my goal before December, because I desperately want to get down to that mystery (for now) number before I get pregnant again.

Here's what I can post, for now. I am taking pictures and weighing myself every week, I just can't bring myself to post it yet. Soon...hopefully soon...

~My Goal~
Starting Weight - ***
Current Weight -***
Last Week's Weight - +1 lbs
Weight Loss Goal by December -***
Pounds left to make that Goal - 82.5

...but you lost a pound! That is still great! You should be proud of yourself. One of the other bloggers in this challenge says it like this: 1 lb is equal to 4 sticks of butter. So if you lost 1 lb - imagine adding that lb to your body w/4 sticks of butter. YUK. I say: GREAT JOB!

I lost 1 lb too...and I practically starved myself for it too. I woulda thought I had lost more!

Oh well. Pound by pound - we can do it. Good luck for next week :)

Think of it this way - 1 lb is 4 sticks of butter you melted off your body!!

And if it makes you feel any better, I gained 2.5lbs in the last 2 weeks. :\

Hi, there! Found you via the weekly weigh-in. I understand the frustration. I haven't been able to lose the baby weight until recently due to serious back issues (caused by my pregnancy). I've only recently felt somewhat normal and able to get physical again. You should be proud! Remember, it's not result that counts, the manner in which you got there. Be proud of the process!

I am following you, now. Hope you'll do the same! Good luck!
