Weight Loss

Weigh In Wednesday: Assess The Damage

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I plan on doing a fun recap but wanted to make sure I got the Weigh In Wednesday Post up so we could all link up, since I know how eager we all are…

Weigh In Wednesday

This week I wasn’t expecting a loss. I was just hoping I didn’t gain like 5lbs. I worked out like a champ, but my eating was WAY off base. Cookies, Cinnamon Rolls, and Dirt Cake… OH MY! I used “lightened up” recipes for the scalloped potatoes and green beans (although I wasn’t a fan of how the green beans turned out…) but I don’t think there was any undoing the damage done by all the desserts. I stepped on this scale begrudgingly this morning. Here is the damage: 1226weighin

Last week: 189.6
This week: 191.6
Loss/Gain: + 2lbs

DietBet Goal: 188.2 

So, this week I have to lose like 3 lbs. Which is totally doable. I just have to crack the whip on my eating. I am totally golden on workouts – With my new Polar Heart Rate Monitor I have been watching my burn and it has been usually around 600 calories per workout. I need some serious help in the eating department. More protein and veggies, less “other”

We have ONE week left to go.
What are you going to do to make it count?!

  1. Don’t get down on yourself. I hate living in guilt. It was Christmas and you enjoyed the time with your friends and family. I’m sure we all gained but I would rather gain a bit and enjoy my time than to sit here all week and be miserable.

    You can get it off with as much as you workout!


  2. setting the right expectations is totally key. if you don’t expect to lose, that number on the scale won’t be so crushing. i haven’t weighed in yet… but will get to it eventually 🙂 haha


  3. I was just looking at a Polar heart rate monitor for my Christmas money…do you like yours? What kind is it? 3 pounds will be easy peasy this week for you if your on track with workouts and healthy eating…good luck!


  4. I have gained too….not sure how much but I KNOW I have gained because I can feel it all over. My husband bought me a Polar FT4 for an early Christmas present so I have been using that when working out with my mom. Today was a horrible workout that took me like 45 minutes, but I finished and that is all that matters!!! I burned about 622 calories!! I too, am having issues with the eating. I wish I didn’t crave crap…:/ I think I have like 6 lbs to lose in a week….don’t think it’s doable but who knows. I might surprise myself….just have to tighten up!
