Scale Steppin' Sunday--Jan 9


I weighed in this morning at 204.1 lbs.  This is after a week of eating absolutely what I wanted and not apologizing for it.  I've been teetering between 205 and 207 lbs.  I also haven't exercised all week because I caught Lootie Tootie's flu. 

Mini Goal for January:

Get under 200 lbs.  199 is my goal.  I want to never see 200 again.  That would be such a wonderful thing.  I am tired of teetering up and down.

I made this goal this morning after weighing in.  I was still formulating my plan while driving to Target to shop for food for the entire family.  At the end of the shopping, I truly wanted to go get a donut.  I went past it, and just felt deflated by the thought of failing myself . . . again.  I didn't buy it.  I didn't get that Caramel Brulee Latte to go with it.  I truly wanted it, but the thought of 10 points made me stop from purchasing it.  I moved on.  This is truly a moment for me to be proud of.  Usually, I make excuses and get what I want; even if it is bad for me. 

My goal for this week--January 9-15:
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes, 5 times this week.
  • Eat clean foods everyday in right proportions: no snickers, dessert, etc.
  • Take an hour everyday to do something for me that isn't kid related, husband related, house related, or weight loss related.
Thanks to those of you who wrote such wonderful advice and suggestions for me to follow after my last post.  I am making them part of my goals to some degree.

What is your goal this week?


  1. WTG on your loss no matter how it was achieved. Looks like the scale is going in the direction it needs to for your goal! Fingers crossed that you will see Onederland soon!

  2. Onederland is coming for you. These sound like GREAT goals. And hooray for passing up the donuts!

  3. Just hearing you talk about the donut (although they are not on top of my list, but I wouldn't kick them out of bed) and the latte made me sad because THAT IS EXACTLY how I think. Then I got this "woo hoo" that you passed on them. But, I get it, I get it!
    I was at 205.5 this a.m, down from 208 last week. This is the first time I've been in the 200s since pregnancy. Like you, I really want to get out of them.
    We can do this..we can...w/out the donuts!

  4. oh, and I am so psyched that your goal is to make time for yourself. It is hard, but when it happens it is great!

  5. That's great Rosa that you were able to pass on the Caramel Brule Latte. I had no idea they were 10 points. Guess that's what happens when you keep your head in the sand.

    You goals sound great and achievable. You'll be seeing the 199 lbs in no time.
