Weigh In Wednesday

Weigh-In Wednesday: Down 13

Ya’ll, losing weight is really hard. It’s been a difficult, extremely slow process for me and lately I’ve been so busy it’s been tough to make eating healthy and working out a priority. And just when I felt like my goal of losing 25 lbs this year was completely and totally insane… I weighed myself.

I hate getting on the scale, because to me it’s demoralizing. It never moves as much as I think it should, compared to how hard I worked. So I don’t do it very often. As in, maybe once a month, if that. I’ve been so consumed with other things lately that it’s been more than a month since I stepped on the scale and honestly, I prepared myself for the worst. I haven’t been working out more than once a week and I’ve been eating out more than I should.

So I braced myself for a gain.

To my surprise and utter delight I didn’t gain. I LOST. Guess riding a second horse is really paying off in more ways than one! Of course, I couldn’t help but then track my progress year to date. Even though in January I was the heaviest I’ve ever been, I’m happy to say that’s no longer true. Today, I am not the heaviest I’ve ever been; in fact, I’m down 13 lbs this year. It’s still a long way off from my goal, and my goal might not be totally realistic at this point, but you know what? I’ve made significant progress. So naturally, I celebrated with a new shirt I’ve been coveting from Sporthorse Lifestyle and a ride with my BFF:

  1. Awesome job! I’ve been terrible at working toward my goal weight. As in, I haven’t at all, not even a little. It’s surprising how hard it is to stick to healthy meals and working out. But ugh. SO HARD!
    I love that top! I’ve been going back and forth about getting one! But every time I decide to make the commitment they’re sold out of the medium. Boo.

  2. Congratulations – 13 lbs!! That’s awesome! I weigh in on the 15th of every month (otherwise I get obsessive and weigh myself way too often and get discouraged), and I’m happy to say that as of last night’s weigh in, I’m down 10 lbs since starting my diet in March! Of course, I was hoping I’d have lost 20 by now, but 10 feels like a milestone. (haha apropos blog pun intended!)

  3. Well done! Love the new shirt 🙂
    I lost one pound last week, it’s my huge/crazy goal to lose 4lbs this month. And that one pound was such a challenge. 13 is amazing!!!

  4. Slow and steady! Studies have proven that the longer route to weight loss and lifestyle change is usually the one that sticks so that is a positive outlook on not necessary reaching the immediate goal you had but making your way steadily there!

  5. Awesome!! I hate weighing myself, I usually go by how my clothes are fitting as a gauge.

    I’m happy to see Mr. Miles in a picture with some tack on and a smiling Tracy next to him again!!
