Wednesday Weigh In–First Week Back on the Scale

by Aimee Beltran on April 23, 2014

in Weekly Weigh-In, Weight Loss Journey, Weight Watchers

It’s the first time in a LONG time that I’m getting back on the scale every week to track my weight loss progress. When I found out how much weight I’ve gained at the doctor’s office it was a huge reality bitch slap right across the face!

Like I mentioned in my original post, I immediately started thinking of all the excuses for why I must be gaining weight. It’s because my gallbladder was removed, I’m not on Phentermine, I’m 32, bla bla bla bla.

EXCUSES!!!! ALL OF THEM!

Wednesday Weigh In Results

I decided to see if something is really wrong with me or if I’ve just been lazy with the process. I went back to basics for just ONE week to see if I could lose weight on my own. I started diligently measuring my food, journaling, staying within my points range, and working out. Well, I’m proud to say that worked and I lost 3.7 lbs this week!
Weekly Weigh In 4.23.14

It reaffirms that I must give this 120% focus all the time. I can’t afford not to. I’m not letting this gain get me down. I’m not letting it stop me from being happy and living my life. It’s a bump in the road and I’ll put my truck in four wheel drive and plow over that bitch!

It’s ok if you’ve gained back what you’ve lost. Just don’t give up. Figure out what works for you and get back in the game. I realized that measuring my inches at this point in my journey wasn’t working for me and I made a change. It’s ok to make changes and tweaks along the way! What worked 6 months ago, may not work today. Don’t worry about what anyone says or thinks about you. They can’t lose the weight for you!!!

Goals for Next Week

Each Wednesday, I’m gong to weigh myself and share the results right here on my blog.  My big goal is to get the hell out out of the 200’s for good. But instead, I focus on each “weight decade” and not the big picture all at once. My next goal is to get the hell out of the 240’s so I can put that decade in its grave. TRUST that I will never see that again! I mean it. You better watch out because I’m making one hell of a come back!

Have an irresistible week!

Welcome! I hope you link up with us every week – I cannot wait to see your progress :)

I love that you are focusing on “decades” it is great to have small goals than to say I am going to lose 100 lbs. You seem so ambitious and focused :)
