2012 Week 18 - RESULTS

Apologies that this is a day late!

STARTING WEIGHT:   222.6 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT:  222.1 lbs

WEIGHT LOSS:    0.5 lbs

At my Thursday check, I was only down 0.2 lbs for the week. I had hoped to try and get it to at least a pound by today, and by Saturday morning I was at 0.8 lbs. However (and as I've already described), my super-late shift didn't happen, and so the carbs I'd eaten in preparation for a night on my feet were unnecessary.

I wasn't sure how they would have affected my weight, so to see a slight gain over the weekend is a bit disheartening. Still, I managed four runs last week, which is definitely good for my general fitness, and also a positive sign that maybe I'm finally managing to fit it back into my routine.

I'm still finding that running doesn't really shift much, if any, weight at the moment. It could of course just be that I've been stagnant for so long, and its taking some time for my metabolism to speed up and start shedding the pounds. I'm happy to lose a half-pound in a week, if its a slow and steady progression over the seven days. I think I'm only a bit disappointed this time because there was a bigger loss on Saturday.

But still, my second loss in a row, so my new rule of losing each week is off the right start. I also said before that I wanted to take it steady down to about 218 lbs, as that's usually been the point I reach before I rebound back up again. If the rate of loss is slow but continuous between now and goal, I'd rather take that than see bigger losses and then rebounds.

Still, going to see if I can reach the pound mark by next Monday!

 2012 Weight Loss: 
2.8 lbs (75.0 total loss)


  1. At least the big carb load was an oops. Wasn't you just eating to eat. You thought you were working that crazy shift. And you still had a loss!! Keep up the amazing work!!

  2. Thanks Trisha! You'd think I'd have learned after all this time, but there is still that part of my brain that thinks my body is still capable of those massive 5lb losses I had at the beginning, lol! You're right though, I've managed to more or less avoid my huge binge sessions for a few weeks now, and happy I scored a loss!
