December Weigh-In: My Lowest Weight in Over a Year!

Sometimes I don’t look forward to weigh-ins when they happen right after a trip, but that wasn’t the case this weekend. I got home on Saturday evening from 4 days in Colorado, but had a hunch that my weigh-in on Sunday morning would go well. And it did! Check it out!


I’ve been trying for months to get back into the 230s, and I made it! That’s a 4-pound loss for the month of November. (I always disregard the tenths on my scale – one tactic to prevent me from obsessing over numbers.) Time to update my weight loss chart!


My hunch was thanks to a very healthy Thanksgiving week. As you saw in my last post, I stuck to my Thanksgiving pledge and didn’t pig out on Turkey Day. I ate responsibly the other days, too, teaming up with my sister to make egg white scrambles and green smoothies. We ate out once, at California Pizza Kitchen, and I chose their Thai crunch salad, dressing on the side.

Plus, I got three great workouts in during my time in Colorado. I mentioned a 3.2-mile run + push-ups and sit-ups in my last post, but that wasn’t all. In addition, I went on a 9.8 mile bike ride one day, and on another day, my sister and I swam 2,800 yards at her gym. It wasn’t the longest swimming workout I’ve had, but it was one of the toughest, because we sprinted 1/4 of the yards. Exhausting.

I know I didn’t lose 4 pounds over the course of my trip, though. Even though I had a one kinda crummy week, I worked really hard throughout the rest of November. I worked out a ton (24 out of 30 days), and competed in two stair climb races (the CF Climb and Hike the Halo).

I’m elated. I haven’t weighed less than 240 since September of last year – over a year ago! Here’s my weight loss chart since then, with my finger pointing at my September 2012 weight of 238:


My weight of 239 puts my total weight loss at 163 pounds! And I’ve lost 18 pounds in the past 7 months.

My next goal is to keep going and get down to 232, which was my all-time low from two years ago. That probably won’t happen by my next weigh-in on January 1st, but it’s something to strive for. Beyond 232 is, quite literally, uncharted territory for me!

This weigh-in features one more milestone – I had to add a new page to my weight loss chart! I’m up to five pages. Can’t wait to keep filling up that fifth page!


Keep it up, David!
