Monday Weigh-In: Week 10

It’s a good job I didn’t add the additional 5lb loss last week due to illness, as the scales give me a 3lb gain on that figure and I wouldn’t have been happy. As it stands I went for the original 2lb loss I knew I had thanks to serial weighing and so this week I have lost another 2lb, so happiness ensues!

A couple of people have also admitted to being serial weighers. Why do we do it? I know I’m not going to miraculously lose three stones overnight so why?

Personally, if I step on the scales one morning and find myself slightly below what I weighed the previous day, at a lower weight than I’d ever reached before (except on my way up!), then it makes me happy that I’m going in the right direction.

I’m aware that if I weigh myself in the evenings or after eating I’m going to weigh more. I’m aware that the scales fluctuate. And for this reason I only take notice on my official Monday morning weigh-ins. I don’t get upset over any fluctuations during the rest of the time but if I see a new, lower weight, it motivates me!

I need to lose another 2lbs in order to make a total loss of 2 stones so far. That’s this weeks aim. My next short term goal is to lose another stone by the end of September, approximately six weeks away.

Can I do it?

And just to step it up a gear I’ve set myself up with the Wii Sports Active 30 day personal challenge. More on that during the week, hopefully. If the first few days of squats, lunges and general body aching exercises don’t kill me or make my typing fingers fall off though I could always type with my nose, I suppose.

  1. You were above me at SITS this morning.

    Great job on the weight loss. I just went through this a year and a half ago. Lost 30 pounds and still kept it off!! (would love to loose the last ten)

    I am actually not a scale nut. I stick to my once a week, that's it. If it goes up a little during the week I get too discouraged.

  2. I remember when I was in Weight Watchers I'd weigh every morning like clockwork. I found it kept me from being surprised at the weekly weigh-in. I didn't like surprises!

    But in maintenance, I've found it hurts me. I'll see that I've lost a little and eat more that day…not a good thing!

  3. Good luck on your goal!

    Frankly, I had to put the scale away. My wish is to gain rather than lose, but either way I don't think it's too healthy when we start to obsess over each loss and gain. Now I just try to be healthy day by day instead of worrying how much I weigh.

    Visiting from SITS!
