Week 5 Weight Loss


Better late than never, right? This week was kind of like a plateau for me. I didn't find myself starving all week like I had in previous weeks. I also didn't feel the need to binge eat every second of every day. I went about with my normal routine, cooking what I had in the house since I didn't go food shopping last week. The only thing I really did was watch my portions and my eating between meals. 

When I snacked I grabbed a 100 calorie pack or a yogurt. I didn't go out of my way to cook extra healthy meals. I mean, we weren't eating fried chicken or fast food, but we ate normally. We had chicken cutlets, ham, pizza.... but I didn't go back for seconds on anything.

Working out has not been going well. I really think the weather has just drained me of all my energy. I will sit on the couch and will myself to turn on the wii and play. Even if for only 20 minutes. But I didn't. Not once. But I have been keeping myself active with lots of cleaning and reorganizing. So I guess that helps a little. I need spring so I can get outside!

So how did this week go for me?
Starting Weight: 177.2
Week 1: 174.8
Week 2: 175
Week 3: 173.4
Week 4: 175
Week 5: 174.4
Weekly Gain/Loss:-.6
Total Gain/Loss: -2.8
First Goal: 165 by March 31st

I'm happy. At least my numbers are heading in the right direction again. I feel like my efforts this week were minimal but present. So that leaves me plenty of room for improvements. One of my biggest problems... plain and simple... I love food.

How did you do?

A loss is a loss! Take it!

I was pretty pumped about my loss for the week - 2 pounds! That's a 14 pound loss for 3 weeks!!

I was so pumped I went to the gym and worked out for an hour. :)

Your doing great girl! Every step is a step closer to your goal! I understand feeling slugish when it's raining or snowy! haha, this snow is killing me! Like you said, you don't have to cook excessively healthy, it's the portion control and I think you had a pretty good week. I'm right there with you on spring! I can't wait. I'm so excited {in my head} i plan to go up to the track and then run stairs on the bleachers. We'll see. :D

Hope you have a great weekend!!
Oh and I'll have a linky for next week!
