Monday Weigh-In (Free Skinny Me!) – Week 1

Monday Weigh-In
Week 1, as last year, has got off to an excellent start.  However, as last year, I’m under no illusions about it.  I know that much of it is water rather than fat hence the relatively large weight loss that the scales report.  But you know what?  I’ll take it.  It’s encouraging and goodness knows, I like to be encouraged.  Don’t we all? 
Due to Joseph only being three weeks old and delivering him by caesarean, I’m as yet unable to exercise at all.  That’s a good excuse as any eh?  It’s true though.  Exercising is the last thing on my mind at the moment.  I’m just thankful to be back to walking normally.  Well, as normally as I have been in the last three weeks.  Maybe I’ll dust the Wii Fit off in another few weeks.  Or perhaps I’ll have thought of another excuse not to by then.  Who knows?
My report for this week is as follows:
Starting weight:    13st 1  (or 183lbs)
Week 1 results:    Lost 8lbs (*cheer*!)
Current weight:    12st 7 (175lbs)
Amount to lose before freeing Skinny Me: 52lbs
Is anyone out there joining in? 
(Shouldn’t the question be simply, “Is anyone out there?!”)

  1. Please be careful with that exercising. I've had the sections and know not to do anything until doctor says it is okay…at least eight weeks.

    I injured myself on the last section doing "too much" and had to have my incision cauterized. I received a small scolding from the doctor.

    Now…my lecture is over…I'm so happy that you have had this big accomplishment in the past week. Way to go!

  2. Oh Patty you have just armed me with my excuse for not exercising. If anyone in future asks why I'm not doing it I'll tell them, "Because Patty says so!".

  3. I am a reader…and trying to lose weight too! Three years ago I was about where you are in weight. I am down 30 pounds. I simply stopped eating desert except for once a week and began light exercise. I do some yoga (The Biggest Loser DVD is great!) and recently began walking in the mornings. In one hour I get about 3.5 miles. Kombucha is a great help, as it nourishes the body, gives me energy and curbs my appetite greatly.

    I am ready to kick it up a notch, so I bought P90 (an easier version of P90X). Now to make it a habit!
