New Weigh Day

Had a very productive Sunday. After dropping Dave off, I went to the laundry mat and washed my comforter. I was also able to vacuum and mop the floor and clean out the junk in my trunk before I had to go back and get him. I ended up walking around my old high school where he was refereeing so I got some exercise. I probably walked a mile or so with some incline. (no bugg on)

After we got back to my place I finished my workbook for class. There are some good exercises that I will share soon. It needs to be handed in this week since next Sunday is my last one - Yay! This will enable Dave to come out with just me instead of doing the buddy system. He will also be able to go out for 8 hours at a time. The program is about 6 miles from where I live so it is very accessible but it does get cumbersome having to drive back and forth for them to "check-in" every 4-5 hours.

I also finished reading Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl I really enjoyed it! (Thanks Jenn!) Shauna is very witty, funny, honest and a tiny bit obsessed with chocolate! She lost a total of 175 lbs! If any of you would like to read it I would be more then happy to send it to you. Just let me know in the comments. I am going to read Confessions of a Carb Queen next.

So I got on the scale this morning and it said 265 which brings me back to 50 lbs. again. Now Friday is my usual weigh day but I would like to move it to Mondays. Seems to me that more people weigh in on Mondays, it would help me avoid any binging in anticipation and a lot of the challenges ask for weight updates on Mondays... so there you have it. I have my bodybugg in the car so I will go down and get it after I have had some coffee. Until next time...

P.S. It is going to be in the upper 90s - low 100s today!


  1. congrats on the loss then!! if it makes sense for you to weigh mondays, then do it. I weigh on Fridays and it suits me. You have to do whatever fits. xx

  2. Moving WI to Monday might put more focus on the right behavior through the weekend, which is what trips up most folks.

    And yay for 50 lbs.

  3. Good job getting back to 50 lbs lost! i wish I could do that! :)

  4. Glad you liked the book! Carb Queen was good, too, but I liked Diet Girl better...
    And congrats on getting back down, I knew you could do it! Onward and forward!

  5. I have awarded you the Honest Scrap Award.

  6. I hope we see a bodybugg graph tomorrow Katie! Maybe it's just the excitement of mine arriving tomorrow, but I honestly think you'll feel so much better and on track when you've got your bugg strapped back on.

    I think switching to a Monday weigh in sounds like a good idea. It'll help ward of weekend temptations.

  7. Hi Katie,
    I posted the 'portrait poem' on my blog this morning and linked to yours. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Andrea :)


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
