Friday weigh in - major milestone edition!


I'm not sure I could be any happier about anything at the moment. I knew today was going to be the day. I went out at 7am, ran a 5k, came back threw all my clothes on the floor and jumped on the scale. It said 199.2 then I realized I was still holding my phone so once I put that down, a solid 199. I have not been this weight in at least 8 years.

Here are the stats:
Jan 14 - Start of liquid diet - 250
Jan 29 - Surgery weight - 237 -13
Feb 8 - 231 -6
Feb 15 - 222 -9
Feb 22 - 220  -2
Mar 1 - 218  -2
Mar 8 - 216  -2
Mar 15 - 213 -3
Mar 22 - 209 -4
Mar 28 - 208 -1
Apr 5 - 206 -2
Apr 12 - 199 -7

51 pounds total!  That's an overweight suitcase on Delta.

As you can see, amazing loss this week! My trainer is out of town so I did lots of yoga, lots of running and a spin class. I'm a little worried I burned some muscle which would account for the crazy weight loss this week. It also confuses me because I'm trying to find a perfect balance between weightlifting, cardio and yoga. Am I lifting too much? It seems to slow my weight loss but isn't it better for me in the long run? It's so hard to know!

What I do know is that I'm going to celebrate my success today - mani pedi, lunch with Crys, dinner with my best friends in the world. Lots of love :)

I can't believe how far I've come in 10 weeks. My life has completely changed already and there's still 74 pounds to go. I'm just going to continue to enjoy the journey!


  1. That is so amazingly awesome!!! I'm so happy for you!!!! Congratulations!!! Yes, it's worth all those exclamation points, ha ha!

  2. PS: I love your sense of overweight suitcase on Delta!! LOL

  3. Woohoo! Congratulations, I am happy for your success. Great job on running a 5k this morning.

    I would think that the strength training is a good thing. Even if it does slow your weight-loss (which I don't think it will), like you said it will help you in the long run.

  4. OMG, I am SO SO SO happy for you!!! How nice to have your weight start with a "1"!!! Like I said in my reply to your comment on my blog, you are the poster child for WLS! Congratulations!!!

    Oh, and regarding the strength training, I think it will firm you up so much and help to change the shape of your body overall, to the point that you'll be happier with how you look as the pounds come off (less saggy is what I'm trying to say). I'd keep doing what you are - it's working and it sounds like you are enjoying it, too!

    Enjoy your celebration day - you've earned it!

  5. That is awesome!! I can't wait to be able to say I've hit the 100's too (I've got a lot further to go though). =)

  6. Congratulations!

  7. Congratulations on getting into onderland! I remember when I got there. It is an amazing accomplishment!

  8. Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy for you!!! You should buy an outfit for such a great accomplishment!
