Weekly weigh-in: November 5

I'm not going to give the whole history each week like I have been doing -- you can see that on my last weigh-in.

This week I weighed in at 182.8 pounds, which is 0.8 down from last week and 3 pounds total since October 1. I'm very happy with my progress so far -- for the first time in forever, I'm making consistent steps in the right direction.

I'm not sure I deserved a loss this week, but I'll take it. It was a week with a lot of ups and downs, and I fell off the wagon with tracking quite a few times. This week is a chance to do better.

Successes: I did Spinning on Wednesday and Thursday and I felt a sort of pleasant buzz all day Thursday and Friday, as if everything were humming right along in the right direction. I think trying to get a Spin class in at least twice a week could make a difference.

Opportunities for improvement: I need to do the things that help me to succeed, like tracking my food and checking in with SuperBetter. I also need to remember how bad overeating makes me feel -- not just the fullness, but the hangover I get from food that's too rich or too sugary.  I went to a super-fancy restaurant Saturday and it seemed like the food was dripping in cream -- delicious but I still feel a little off from it.

I'm not feeling great this morning. I'm going to go to yoga anyway, and see if some relaxation and breathing will help. I'm also going to focus on staying hydrated today.  I have to teach tomorrow night, so I need to struggle through the best I can and get a lot of work done today.


  1. Great job, Jen. Consistency is absolutely what it takes. Keep at it!

  2. You have been doing great on here! But, "I'm not sure I deserved a loss this week"? You deserve to feel happy, vibrant, fresh, and beautiful. Nothing less.

    I've been pretty guilty about not checking in with superbetter. Truthfully, I just get so much more out of blogging. There's more space for self expression.

    1. In this case, "not deserving" was shorthand for not really following my program. I do agree that I deserve every good thing!
