Only two months left in 2016? For real? For real, folks. It’ll be 2017 before you know it. Which means this is my second-to-last weigh-in for 2016, and it’s a good one. Without any further ado, my weight loss chart!

For the First Time in 9 Weeks: Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report!

August 10, 2016

I don’t do official weigh-ins while traveling, since I’m away from my weight loss chart, so I missed my July weigh-in entirely, and I’m a week late for my August weigh-in. Better late than never! I stepped on the scale, nine weeks after my June 1st weigh-in, and here’s what it said:

April 4, 2016

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 »


It’s Time to Change How I Think About Weight Loss Maintenance

July 27, 2015

I’m hard on myself. Probably harder than I should be. I set high standards and goals, and I’m good at beating myself up when I don’t reach them. When it comes to my health and weight loss journey, I push myself. And the results are impressive. I’ve lost around 160 pounds, and kept it off for over four years.

Three SidebySide

There are so many times, though, that I simply feel that this isn’t good enough. And that’s when I start beating myself up. And it’s got to stop. I need to rethink weight loss maintenance.
