Weigh-In Results

Okay, It's been a while since I weighed myself and I'm a little nervous.  Part of me is terrified, but I know that no matter how high the number on the scale is, I will not be discouraged.  I took a break from being good to my body.  I ate a lot of food and ate emotionally.  I didn't exercise as much as I should have.  I'm ready to pay the price for that.

Last time I weighed myself I weighed 245.5 pounds.  That was November 2nd and I was not happy with the number.  Let's see how I did this time.

I was expecting worse.  I gained a total of 12 pounds over the course of two months.  I could feel it creeping up on me and it made me feel terrible.  I have not, however, undone my all the work I put into my journey.

Those 12 pounds are accumulated stress and laziness that I am going to remove from my body in short order.


  1. Don't let the number on the scale be the sole determiner of your success. It sounds like your renewed confidence will be the key to your success. Good luck.

  2. I also gained a lot, especially in the last 2 months of last year. I'm up about 44 pounds from my low last year … certainly not all of my losses but big enough. BUT, I'm back on the case and remedying that problem.

    Lets get back to it man, we can do this!!!

  3. My only recommendation would be to think in terms of athleticism instead of pounds. By the time you can run a 6 minute mile, you surely won't be overweight.

  4. It takes a lot of courage to face the truth and even more to change it. Glad you are writing again. Your blog really encourages me!
