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.
The big picture is that I’ve done – and continue to do – incredible things, so I’m gonna try to not equate a smaller number with success, or a larger number with failure. Nor will I make any judgments regarding self-worth, positive or negative, after reading the scale.

I’ve settled into a routine where I only do weigh-ins once a month. If I do them more frequently, I start to obsess over the numbers and I don’t need that particular obsession in my life. If I do them less frequently, I find myself derailing off my program, due to a lack of accountability.
My weigh-ins are on the first of the month. This one is a few days delayed, because I was up north when April turned to May, but I weighed myself when I got back. Wanna see how I updated my weight loss chart? Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

I stayed the same. 247 pounds. It’s always nice to lose, but Read the rest of this entry »
