Week 12 weigh in with new goal shirts and retirement of old goal shirt. 2


Well in contrast to last week this one was not great. At least in comparison to the amount of weight I lost last week. This week I saw the scale drop another .5 Lbs. That puts me at a total of 36.8 Lbs lost, and sitting at 382.2 Lbs. I could feel going into the gym tonight to weigh myself that I was not going to have a good weigh in, my body felt very bloated and swollen, the complete opposite of how I felt the week before. I think I ate to many salty foods and I ate at odd times not really sticking to my schedule that last few days. I also got no walking in over my weekend and sat around a lot. Overall I am happy that I still had a loss, but it was my smallest loss yet. I won’t let it get me down and I will spring back over the next few weeks I am positive! Going to challenge myself this week to eat super clean and cut some of my sodium intake if I can.

Food this week went well outside of the sodium problem. I played around with my food a lot, and maybe eat some things I should not have. If I did something else wrong this week it would be that I had the choice to eat healthier versions of some foods but opted for the one that tasted better. An example is I bought tasty white artisan rolls when i could have gone with something whole wheat. I also can see I need to add some more vegetables, I just have a hard time with them as I have mentioned before. Maybe this week I will figure it out. I feel like overall it was a clean week, I drank a very large amount of water, and avoided a lot of trigger food. I had times I could have blown my calories and was able to say no without hesitation.

Exercise went really well this week outside of not walking over the weekend, which was a really big mistake. I did get at least a 35 minute walk in all the other days and most days I made that at least a 40 minute walk. This week I plan to go for 35 minute walks everyday and this time to set my goal to include the weekend. Swimming is going really well, just 3 more swims before I do my mile swim without stopping. At that point I will be done with the program, and then I will have to figure out what type of swimming program I want to do. I saw two that I am interested in, one for weight loss, the other to improve my times. This week I am going to try to get a few days of yoga in again, wish me luck!

I don’t feel like I have very many NSV this week but I did have a few. My first big one is I have started to wear 3xl shirts everywhere even decided next time I shop I will pick up 3x shirts and not even look at the bigger shirts. I also sort of realized how much more energy I have and I can do things so much better then when I started. I don’t feel like I am going to kill over anymore when I walk up stairs. I can bend over to tie me shoes, and when I need to get up and get something or walk to the mail box I don’t even care. I know that before I would find some excuse not to move 9 out of 10 times.

This week I am putting my old goal shirt into retirement now that 3xl is my new shirt size! What better way to celebrate my goal shirt becoming a normal shirt than buying two new goal shirts that are 2xl! Check them out and let me know what you think!

    Don’t let the slower progress get you down! You are doing awesome! Might just be water and a little bit of muscle gain You can gain up to 0.25lbs of muscle a week.

    No shame in buying frozen veggies if you are having problems getting them in, that is how I do it. Takes 6 minutes to cook them, and no cutting necessary :)
