Weight Loss Journey: 29 Weeks Down!


Weight: I gained 0.4 pounds for a adjusted total loss of 54.6 pounds. I was surprised to see a gain after having a good week. I decided to take some measurements and see if I lose any inches in a couple of weeks since the scale has not been good to me.

Nutrition: I was lucky to get to review a whole week of the Diet-To-Go meals (review coming soon) so it was super easy to stay on track. The meals were so satisfying that I didn't even have the urge to snack in between meals. I did go out to eat a couple times for dinner but  limited my portions so I would keep my calorie consumption under control.

Exercise: I went to the gym twice and did some Zumba YouTube Videos one day. I found my old iPod and took it with me to the gym to listen to my oldies but goodies. I walked a lot and ran around with my daughter in the park. I love that she is more into the jungle gyms than the swings now.

I found an awesome strength training video on MagRack and did it three times this week. I was pretty amazed that I could do everything on the video. I even did the bicycle core exercises which is something I couldn't do before. I bought this really thick and large anti-fatigue mat that I found in a discount store and laid it on top of my area rug. This gave me extra cushioning so I wouldn't bother my landlord downstairs.

Last Weeks Goals:
  • 7 days of Diet-To-Go meals - GOAL MET!
  • Gym 3 days or Exercise DVD - GOAL MET!
  • Strength Training 3 days - GOAL MET!
  • Continue Plank Challenge - GOAL MET!
  • Yoga, Pilates or Stretching 1 day - 
This Weeks Goals:
  • Dr. Oz Rapid Weight Loss Plan 5 days

  • Strength Training 3 days
  • Pilates 1 day

  1. Maybe the gain was just in muscle? Since muscle weighs more than fat it is possible that one loses fat but gains weight because they gained some muscle.

  2. Gabby should be right...it may be the muscles..

  3. Diet seems to be the possible reason of regaining weight and i guess muscle has less weights then fat have.

  4. I hope we have Diet-To-Go meals here. I'm really having a hard time in planning my meals for losing weight. I wish I could exercise as much too.

  5. The weight loss/gain all depends on your body that day.. it could be water weight also..

  6. I think the weight gain/loss thing is not important. Look at all of the things you accomplished. Your body may be retaining water, gaining muscle, but you are for sure healthier.

  7. I'm guessing you're nearing your peak form which is why you are gaining a few pounds already. You have to step it up to lose more but you're doing a great job.

  8. I of course am not a professional :) but in my opinion, I would think the gain is possibly water weight or muscle. I have found when I do weights or an intense workout, that I am always up. Taking measurements is a great idea. I've done this myself so that I can see if I might be losing inches even though the scale might reflect otherwise.

  12. Don't worry about losing less weight as you go, it means you're making progress and muscle is developing!

  13. Aww, girl, I really support your weight loss and the endless hard work you've put into it! I've been following your progress...please don't worry about less than a half of a pound! That will make you go crazy!! I say no more weigh-ins for a month and see what happens :)

  14. If I were you I would go with the measurements instead of the scale. The measurements are what counts anyway. Great job keep up the great work.

  15. Don't you just love when you're able to do something you previously could not before? I think that's awesome too. :) Congrats to you on your achievement!

  16. When I DO workout and try to get in shape, I TRY not to look at the weight as much as the inches that are being lost.

  17. Since you are doing strength training don't forget as you tone your muscles will get heavier. So that gain could be that.

  22. I ALWAYS weight myself after a 'good day', within minutes of going poo. That way I know i'm looking at real weight and not justifying what I'm seeing with 'oh well I've been backed up lately' or 'it must be the pop I had earlier ;)
