September Weigh-In and August Workout Progress Report and, What the Hell, How About A Mental Health Update, Too!

September 9, 2015

We’re already over a week into September, and I’m just now posting my first-of-the-month weigh-in results. There’s some shame involved, and some depression, too, so let’s just spit it out:


Up Seven Pounds. Ugh. I try to remind myself of the big picture – because it is an awesome big picture – but it’s hard. I try to emphasize my new way of thinking about weight loss maintenance, but that is also hard. And it’s because Read the rest of this entry »

August Weigh-In and Monthly Progress Report

August 4, 2015

I do a monthly weigh-in, and I took a deep breath before stepping on the scale the other day. I reminded myself of what I wrote last week (about rethinking maintenance), including that while the number on the scale is an indicator of how things are going, it’s just one of many.

March Weigh-In Results and Workout Progess Report

March 10, 2015

Stay tuned for a Birthday Burpees update at the end!

Sorry for the delay, folks! Normally I do my monthly weigh-in at the first of the month, but I was in Michigan when March began, and I didn’t weigh myself until I returned home, a few days later. This post was further delayed due to my birthday and the enormous Birthday Burpees challenge that came along with it.

No more delays! I stepped on the scale last week, and it said… Read the rest of this entry »
