Weigh-In Results

It's Monday and to be completely honest, I wasn't looking forward to stepping on that scale.  I haven't had much luck on the scale the past couple weeks.  I was nervous.  But I sucked it up and stepped up.

I'm glad I did.

I don't know how, but I lost 7 pounds this week.  If there were any mountaintops in Minnesota, I would shout from the top of one! 

I'm now 4.6 pounds from the weight at which I started college.  I've reversed 7 years of weight-gain.  I'm stoked and I'm not stopping.  I'd like to see the 220s before the end of October.  I'm going to push hard this month.  I'll be paying close attention to my diet.  I'll try to exercise more consistently too.

I know this is just one weigh-in, but it's the boost I needed.

If you're following me on facebook, you may have noticed that I promised this week's winner the opportunity to skype with my cat in exchange for the closest guess to my actual weight this week.  This week's winner is my mother-in-law, Kate Stover with a guess of 244.6 pounds.   Congrats, Kate.  The cats are waiting for you.

  5. Good work. Are you doing any morning/night exercises or just biking? You should update us on your exercise routine.

    Also, your current weight on the side bar is inaccurate. It's reads 242.6.
