Monday Weigh-In: Week 76

Once you fall off the wagon, it’s really really hard to get back on. There were the constant junk food cravings, the constant excuses…always saying “tomorrow”. I fell back hard and got pretty darn scared. I couldn’t gain back everything I worked so hard to lose…I just couldn’t.

I think this past week was the first week in a LONG time where I stayed under my calories every single day. I also worked out for 4 days out of the week. Tiny steps, but it’s wonderful to be back.

Week 75: 234.4
Week 76: 229.6

Weight Lost: 4.8 lbs.
Total Weight Lost: 68.9 lbs.

I’m 4.6 lbs. away from my lowest weight (which was 10 weeks ago), and I’m just super glad that the loss this week was huge. It’s definitely a good kick in the tail to keep things going. While I know these results won’t happen next week, I’m just happy to see results like this again. :-)

Some fun numbers I’ve been thinking about lately:

29.7 lbs. away from Onederland (199.9 lbs.).
18 weeks away from Halloween (my new personal goal to reach 199 lbs.)
49.6 lbs. away from my goal (which could change….but for now, it’s 180 lbs.)
4 sizes away from my ultimate clothing size goal (a size 10)
7 months away from my first half marathon

How was your week? Any victories or vents to share?


  1. Whoa! That really is a huge loss! Way to go!

    My week is going well. After BlogHer Food, then Vegas the next weekend, I ended up gaining 5 pounds. I’m starting to shed those again (slowly, but surely) with daily running, less eating out, and moderate portions, but it sure takes a lot of work to lower that number on the scale, even just a little bit.

    I am so impressed that you’re going to run a half marathon. I’m running a little over 2 miles everyday and I can’t fathom jumping up to 13.1!

    • I hope I can do it! I’m still at about 2 miles myself, but I figured I may as well take a leap! Do something I never thought I could do!

  2. Oh my goodness, great work on getting back on the wagon!
