Winter Wonderland Weigh-In: Week 6

Posted Feb 03 2013 12:00am


It’s Winter! Which means that the weather turns chilly and a new year is just beginning. This year the period from January through March is going to be a Winter Wonderland for me – a time to focus on my weight loss and to finally, once-and-for-all achieve my pre-surgery weight loss requirement. Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend, and will give me a positive goal to begin each new week.  This is the time of year resolutions are made and then quickly forgotten, but not with me.  I’m going to use this season to refresh my outlook, because I’m embarking on more than just a diet plan, I’m going to establish a lifestyle. My Sunday progress updates will be called Winter Wonderland Weigh-Ins.

Week 6 was a good one. I got workouts in, got back on track, and made an exciting decision.

Sounds good.  So, what did the scale show?!

This morning I weighed in at 295.6, which is down 2.4 lbs from last week. Which means I have 14 pounds to go to reach the pre-surgery requirement.  It’s a bit less than I was hoping for, but a loss is a loss, especially because this makes up for last week’s gain, and then some.

This week, I made an important decision:

I can’t wait to see what I can do in a week’s time!  I’m going to continue working out, as well.

Sunday: vinyasa yoga (done)
Monday:  rest day
Tuesday: gym: elliptical/bike
Wednesday: aqua aerobics
Thursday: gym: elliptical/bike
Friday: aqua aerobics
Saturday: Zumba

The first three days are going to be challenging, because I’m going to feel hungry, but after that, it should be smooth sailing.  Plus, once I see the great results on the scale, I know it will spur me on to continue.  I’m also really lucky that I have so many supportive people in my life; people that I know I can text throughout the day to get me out of my own head and staying strong.

I’m proud of myself for being willing to make the changes I need to in order to accomplish my goals.


Until next Sunday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
