Wednesday Weigh In

Down about 2 pounds this week.
That means that that 7 I gained is gone along with another half or so.
Like I said, my scale is now in storage so I am using the one in my mother's bathroom. Her's is about two pounds off from mine so I may need to make adjustments when I have mine back.

That will bring my grand total to 55.5 pounds.

I'm feeling more in control with my eating over the last week.
Today? Not so much.
I made the mistake of not eating enough at lunch time after doing a tough workout. When it's hot and humid, I have a really hard time eating so when the hunger started, it was the hungry horror show. I ended up eating some of my workout calories. I don't normally do that or at least I don't like doing it but it's going to happen from time to time.

My total calories today were: 1960
My calorie goal: 1720 (per my fitness pal)
Over: 240

My workout calories: 650

All in all, it's a win for today.

And speaking of workouts, today's was no-joke.  Damon, one of my regular trainers, is on vacation this week so I got to workout with a new trainer. She is not only new to me but new to this gym.  Anyway, she was no joke.  I told her as much too.  She told me that Damon mentioned to her that I like to work hard and that is exactly what we did today.  I love having a good workout.  Hate it while I'm doing it but always feel great after the fact.

Tomorrow is a new day and I'm looking forward to saying goodbye to another pound (hopefully more) next week.


  1. Nice job on the workout! And the loss! :)

  2. 55 pounds is a LOT! See--I keep feeling like a know-it-all every time I read your blog, because I told you a long time ago that this was going to happen. Remember? I knew that because I remember your change of heart, which was not a passing phase. You really changed and this is the result.

    You are really doing wonderfully. Sometimes, it is 3 steps forward and 2 steps back, but that is like that for most of us. Overall, AWESOME!!!

    :-) Marion

  3. You are doing great, Jenn!! I am very proud of you! :)

    1. Thanks Linda!
      I'm getting there. Baby steps.

  4. I'm so proud of you Jenn. I know what a big deal buying that swimsuit was for you- it made me cry for all it represents. big milestone for you, congratulations. You are coming off the sidelines of your life and jumping in on the play. You go girl.
    I don't miss those New England summers. As you know when i visit in the summers it just saps the life right out of me. I can't enjoy being home unless it's fall or winter. fall is the sweet spot. No joke it really is a dry heat in Vegas, and it makes a difference. I don't completely break down here. LOL.

  5. Thanks Kris!! You have been a huge help through all of this. Your friendship means the world to me.

    NE summers suck the life out of me too! I should move. That will never happen, but a girl can dream.
