Weigh-In Results

Hey, look, it's Sunday and I'm posting last week's weigh-in results again.  I promise there will be a new weigh-in tomorrow.

Here's an update: Claire is out of the hospital and is on the road to recovery.  They still don't know what she had, but she's getting better and there will be some lab work coming back soon.  Overall, it's good to be back home.

Here's how I fared Thursday on the scale.

241.7.  A gain of .9 pounds.  I'm not happy about it, but I was stress-eating hospital food.  It's amazing I didn't go back to 300 pounds.  I'm okay with this, but I need to get back in the right direction.

Here's how I'm going to accomplish this:  I'm going to bike a marathon every single day this week.  That's right.  I'm going to put at least 26.2 miles on my bicycle every day for a week and see what it does to my waistline.  I biked 25 miles a couple days ago and the daily plate told me I burned 2500 calories.  Over 7 days, that's 17,500 calories, or 5 pounds of fat.  Let's see how it goes.


  1. I'm so glad that Claire is getting better. You know, you're not alone--every time I eat poorly, I FULLY expect to step on the scale and see that I've gained back all the weight I've lost in the past few months. What kind of weirdness is that?! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that.

  2. Been reading your blog, you are an inspiration. I have been doing some serious effort to drop pounds myself but it is very slow going. I also have a blog of my own that I have been keeping. I recently got diagnosed with Diabetes, so I am trying to lower my blood sugar without medication (which I have another month to do before go seeing the doctor again)... plus lower so poundage. So, thanks for blogging and being an inspiration.
