Wednesday Weigh In: Week 12

I’ve fallen straight off the wagon and into a vat of sugar, salt, carbs, and laziness (as evidenced by me posting this late for the second week in a row). I’m hitting the reset button on myself and getting back on track in the morning.

If anyone is on myfitnesspal, find me and befriend me! My name is amberiam on there, and I could use all of the help I can get!

Wednesday Weigh In: Week 9

This week I’m down…

1 pound!

Not quite as big a loss as last week, but I’ll take it!

That officially brings me to 10 pounds since I started this little weight loss experiment. I’m behind on my original timetable, so I’m going to tweak it, as listed below.

My revised goals/timetable:

  • 5 pounds lost by 08/29/12. Reward: new nail polish (1-2 bottles) (Accomplished on 08/29!)
  • 10 pounds lost by 10/10/12. Reward: new earrings (Accomplished on 10/10!)–Time to go shopping! ūüėČ
  • 15 pounds lost by 10/31/12. Reward: new workout socks
  • 20 pounds lost by 11/21/12. Reward:¬†new Threadless t-shirt (have some designs in mind…just depends on what’s available at the time)
  • 25 pounds lost by 12/05/12. Reward: another new Threadless t-shirt because there are several I like! =)
  • 30 pounds lost by 12/19/12. Reward: new Pandora charm
  • 35 pounds lost by 01/16/13. Reward: new expensive-ish sports bra (I know, between this and the socks, I’m super exciting, right?)
  • 42 pounds lost by 02/14/13. Reward: new Toms shoes!

Starting weight: 167 pounds
Current weight: 157 pounds
Goal weight: 125 pounds

Slowly but surely I’m getting there! Also, according to the stats myfitnesspal.com is keeping, I’ve lost 18 pounds overall since March. I’ll let you do the math on how big that made me when I was at my highest weight ever. :-/

Wednesday Weigh In: Week 8

This week I’m down…

3.6 pounds!

I don’t know what I did differently over the last week, but I’d like to do it again. Repeatedly.

This takes me to a 9 pound weight loss, so I still haven’t achieved my second goal from my original posting about my weight. I’m listing my goals below to re-motivate myself. Also, I’m starting a challenge at my gym tonight (well, it started Saturday, but this is the first time I’ve been back since last week) where the person who loses the most body fat in 3 months wins money. I like money, so this should really motivate me!

My original goals/timetable:

  • 5 pounds lost by 08/29/12. Reward: new nail polish (1-2 bottles) (Accomplished on 08/29!)
  • 10 pounds lost by 09/19/12. Reward: new earrings¬†
  • 15 pounds lost by 10/10/12. Reward: new workout socks
  • 20 pounds lost by 10/31/12. Reward:¬†new Threadless t-shirt (have some designs in mind…just depends on what’s available at the time)
  • 25 pounds lost by 11/21/12. Reward: another new Threadless t-shirt because there are several I like! =)
