The Weigh-In Week 82

229.6. That's what it said on the scale this morning. A loss of .4 pounds.

Thank you for all the encouragement. The good news is my spirits are still high...sadly so is my weight.

So here's the deal. This has to stop now! Time for a new challenge. It's a five week challenge this time.

Here are the rules.

1. I desperately need new jeans. I can not buy new jeans until I hit 220. (That's not really a rule, more of a statement.)

2. If I have a gain in any one of these 5 weeks, no TV for the entire week. Sadly this seems to be the best motivator I have found so far.

3. If I lose less then a pound in a week Laura gets to make me eat a food that I claim to hate. This is a big one since I am deathly afraid of most vegetables, fruits, seafood and non meat and potatoes dishes in general.

As of today I am back to logging food. I hate logging food, but I need something, anything to keep me on track.

This weeks winner was my Dad with a guess of .4.

Have a great weekend everybody.

1/30 229.6 lbs
Lots to go

Guess How Much I Weigh Contest - Week 82

I'm going to be honest with you. I am a little scared right now. Things feel like they are falling a part. I am not going to let that happen.

As you can tell I have managed to lose control of my weight. This week was supposed to be about getting back on track, but things aren't shaping up that way. Instead I am going to be lucky if I can get back under 230 for tomorrow. 230!!!! That is unbelievable to me. It was not that long ago that I was convinced I would never see 220 again and now suddenly I am back at 230.

And it's effecting my running as well. I am still getting in my miles, but my endurance has seriously suffered. Last summer I was doing 8 mile runs, now I can barely get to 3 miles without needing a walk break.

I know I have said this a lot over the last year but it is time for a re-commitment. I can not and will not let myself waste everything I have accomplished.

The one shining light in all this is I know I have changed. Even in the face of failure I have continued to work out and I have avoided binging. The old me is long gone for sure. Problem is the new me has not taken strong enough root yet, leaving me in a bit a of a limbo world. Time to plant myself firm and get to some positive growth again...or positive loss as the case may be.

More on a plan of action tomorrow.

Step right up, step right up.
Guess how much I weigh and win a fabulous prize.

To Recap:
Every Thursday I give you my stats for the week and you guess what you think the scale will say on Friday morning. The winner is the first person who guesses my weight / weight loss for the week without going over or the person who is closest without going over. Go ahead and click on comments at the bottom of this post and leave your guess.

I will post the winner when I post my weight on Fri. morning. If we get ten or more guesses I will have a prize for the winner.

Let the guessing begin. Good Luck!

Lots to go
