Happy New Year! Weigh in Wednesday

Happy New Year!

I hope your holiday season was amazing! Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, it was a busy last two months.

My New Years Eve was spent having a phenomenal spread of New Years Eve treats, and champagne, and a rocking sequinned dress! Toasting to 2018, watching the ball drop, smootching away when 2018 hit. It was amazing.

Who am I kidding!?

I was in my pajamas, fast asleep. Because I’m that kind of person.

But it’s the New Year. A brand new year to think things through! Um, yay?

Anywhoits, I’m going to jump right into the New Year with a weigh-in! How appropriate?!

My last weigh in I’d gained a whopping 8 pounds. 8 whole pounds of weight gain. What the ever loving crap. But, it knocked some sense into me. I can’t talk about wanting to make a plan, about being serious about losing weight, and then gain 8 pounds. Phew.

Pulled up my big girl pants, and had to focus on some stuff.

Last weigh-in: 213.6
This weigh-in: 211.2
Lost: 2.3
Total lost from highest: 59.9

But I’ll take that 2 pound loss! Absolutely!

What’s kind of less happy to think about is my first weigh in in 2017. Back in July. I’d proclaimed to the world that I’d lost 25 pounds! I was super proud of myself!

I’d started back to blogging with a weigh in I was happy to post about. I was weighing in at 212.3, down from 237.5!

In the last 5 months, I’ve lost actually lost 1.1 pounds.

Can we say EW?

But we’re moving on. It’s a NEW YEAR, and focusing on that isn’t going to do me any favors. Looking to the future and getting going! I don’t want to look back on this year and see the same kinds of things. Ultimate goal is to get to my goal weight before I’m 30. I’m just under two years away. If I can get there sooner, awesome. But I’m taking it one month at a time. Being positive, and working towards it.

WHAT’S HAPPENING the Saga – Weigh-in Wednesday

You know those moments you have when you seriously question science, your body, and pretty much the logic of the world around you?

Yeah, that moment is now.

Let me break down a touch of what has been happening the last seven weeks in regards to my health, well-being, and weight.

No exercise.
Horrible eating (did I not mention all the pumpkin EVERYTHING I have been plowing through)
Lots of sitting in the form of meetings, Netflix, and car rides.
Coffee.
Some more horrible eating.

That’s pretty the gist of it.

So, let me introduce you to the anomaly that is my weigh in.

Last weigh in: 208.2
This weigh in: 205.7
Lost: 2.5 pounds
Total lost from highest: 65.5 pounds

I have no clue.

Yeah, seven weeks is a long time. But to have lost 2.5 in that time, knowing I was being crappy about all things weight loss?

I don’t even know.

Logic has failed me ya’ll.

I’m not even going to lie. I know at one point I’d gained 6 pounds. Because, let’s face it. I still HAVE to weigh myself. I wasn’t weighing myself every week by any means. Somewhere in those 7 weeks I gained 6 pounds and then lost 8.5

So, I’m just going to say I was outrageously bloated during that time period, and then somewhere along the line I wasn’t?

I’m just gonna shake my head a bit and carry on. Because I have absolutely no clue.

You’re welcome.

Although, in less confusing news. My birthday is in two days!

You know what I asked for?

A milkshake.

I’m just going to take my chubby ass and sit in the corner with all that shame. (and yes, I’ll have my shake with me.)
