Weekly Weight: Down Again!

Here's the weekly number:

Lbs. Fat82.772.570.370.868.168.469.567.166.9
Lbs. Muscle 67.366.865.267.363.367.36863.963.9

Excellent, down by another half pound! My expectations were low since I was sick for half the week and didn't move at all, let alone exercise, so I'm especially happy.

A few random bullet points: 

  • Today, I wore another pair of pants that a year ago I couldn't even zip up. I think they were maybe borderline too tight in some places, but the waistline fit great and I was too excited not to wear them. "Why, these old thing that look like generic black slacks? Yes, they are part of this magical day!"
  • I've been putting the scale away during the week and just checking in on Wednesdays. I think it's much better for now. It forces me to not focus on the number because you can't focus on what you don't know. I do still like to check in weekly, but those daily reminders were helping more than hurting. 
    • I have six weeks left until my time goal to hit the 160s. Maybe I can actually do this!
  • I was crazy sore yesterday. Is that what happens when you don't walk farther than the distance between your bedroom and the kitchen for four days, and then do some strength training and cardio? 
  • We've starting watching Star Trek (though Jay has already seen most of them) and it's awesome. 
  • I'm glad everyone is obsessed with Serial because there's many fascinating analyses to read. 
  • I just realized I have 69 posts from 2014. Totally an accident - even my unconscious mind is in the gutter.
  • Winter is here. Everything is cold. I hate it. 
    • My father-in-law lives in LA, and he likes to mock us by sending photos of his wife and himself on warm sunny bike rides on the beach.


  1. Congrats on your progress these past weeks! Nothing beats the feeling of victory when putting on with ease a formerly tight pair of pants :)
    Love that Lucy gif... just add a big coat and scarf and it's like I'm looking in a mirror, ha!

    1. Thank you, I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere.
      And yeah, I just realized Lucy must be freezing in that gif!

  2. GREAT PROGRESS!! I lost about 40 lbs. before getting pregnant last Spring, and now that I'm about 39 weeks pregnant, I am really looking forward to feeling lighter again. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks, I'm so happy the scale is moving. I just need to stay diligent now. Congratulations on your baby, I hope everything goes well!
