Welcome to the third week (I think!) of Fat Free Friday hosted by myself here at Many Sleepless Nights, Sara at Here Comes the Sun & Allie at I was a Fat Bride! We have teamed up to bring you a weight-loss inspired blog hop! We have all had very different journeys with weight loss & we hope to inspire & motivate you each week. We also know that you have your own stories of inspiration. We want to hear your stories as well! Your loss, your gain, your goals, your rewards, everything! We want this to be a place where any other blogger that is sharing our weight-loss journey can link up their blog and share their story.
We don’t want you to feel restricted by tons of rigid rules, but we would like for you to follow as many other bloggers in the hop as you would like and if you feel motivated or inspired or meet a kindred spirit in your mutual love of chocolate cake, leave a meaningful comment on their weight-loss post! Having a good support system is such an important part of the weight-loss journey and we hope that this blog hop is a place that you will find that!
Alright, since I took last week off for Christmas Eve, I figured it was time to weigh-in.
Actually, I knew I had actually lost weight because I had been sick & when I went to the doctor earlier this week, even their scale said that my weight was down!
As of this morning, I weighed . . .
. . . are you ready for it??? . . .
Last weigh-in, i was 172.8 so I lost another 3.4 pounds!
I’m pretty proud of that number since it was over Christmas.
However, I’m cautiously optimistic for next week since I know that a majority of my weight loss this week was because of the awesome case of strep throat that I caught immediately after Christmas. When I was at my lowest weight this week, I was 166.3 so I knew that I was going to gain some of the weight back once I started eating again. But considering that I gained about 8 pounds over Christmas, I guess if I was going to get sick, it came at a perfect time.
There’s always a silver lining, right?!
As for my grand total of weight loss, when I started actively trying to lose weight, I weighed 192.5. This means that my new grand total is: -23.1!
Hopefully I can keep this m0mentum going with the new year!
Happy 2011, everybody!
