Weigh In Wednesday #12


Another loss

but a small one.

1 pound down from last week, meaning I am now at 224 pounds.

I'm excited that I lost weight, but I guess I've just been hoping for more. 

The one part that is exciting about this loss is that I've now lost a total of

40 pounds!!!!!!

Wow, that's just such an amazing number. 


I really need to get back to losing more than one pound a week. I'm going to challenge myself this week and TRY to only eat 1200 calories per day. I'm not positive I'll be able to do so, but I'm going to try.

We shall see how that turns out!!


  1. Good job! I am looking forward to watching your journey. I am 245 lbs myself so I will need the motivation. Keep up the good work!

  2. I'm in the same boat as you. My high school weight was 140 (I'm 5'8) and my highest weight as an adult has been 250. I have PCOS so it both causes me to gain and makes it near impossible to lose it. Last year, I was around 215 & I worked so hard and got down to 190. People were calling me skinny! I hadn't been that small in years, and it was 20 pounds less than my pre-pregnancy weight. I started getting off track and ignoring what I ate, as well as the scale. I knew I had gained back some weight but I didn't think it was all that bad until I stepped back on the scale a few weeks ago.... I was back up to 216 pounds :( it's so incredibly easy to do.I understand your struggle. It's not easy. I'm going to start following your blog and cheering you on! I'm going to make a weight loss goal book similar to yours :) cheers and good job!

    1. Kara, Thank you so much for your comment. I know exactly what you mean when you say it is so easy to gain weight. Before I started my weight loss journey I would only step on the scale every few months (if that). It really just sneaks up on you!! especially when you pay no attention to it. lol. Today at work someone called me "skinny" I know of course I am very far from actually being skinny but it was so incredible to hear! I don't think I've ever heard those words being said to me!! This journey has not been easy, but I knew it wouldn't be. I think this time around I'm doing better because I'm really trying to not be too hard on myself. I wish you the best as you start your journey! If you get on myfitnesspal please add me!

    2. I used to be hardcore on MFP but lately I've been lazy, lol. My username on there is scarlettsmom87 if you want to add me :)

      If someone called me skinny today, I'd probably kiss them, lmao. Good luck to you and I look forward to your next weigh-in!

  3. BTW, I'm new to Blogger so I'm looking for weight-loss and trying-to-conceive friends. I added your blog to "Blogs I Read" :) <3
