Weigh-In January 21: Woohoo! I'm overweight!

I weighed in this morning at 183.  I finally made my December goal of being merely overweight, and not obese.

Today's weight is down 2.8 from my weight last Monday, and up 0.2 from my low weight last Friday. Still, this is my lowest Monday weight in a long time, and I feel like it's proof that what I'm doing is working. My weight is dropping slowly but steadily, and my body fat is also on a slow but downward trend.

My next weight goal is to get into the 170s.

The best part is that just like those Weight Watchers commercials, I'm finding that I don't have to be perfect to lose weight. I miscalculated the calories and overdid it on sushi on Friday, had a night out at the bar with pizza and a hard cider on Saturday, and had a family dinner where I toned it down a bit but still felt like I overdid it yesterday. And my weight is still down, even if it is up a tick.

I think the daily exercise is a big part of it, but also logging my food even when I'm over, and keeping my checklist in mind when making food choices. I'm not sure if the supplements (multivitamin, fish oil, flaxseed oil, plus one of those joint supplements) make a difference, but I will keep taking them -- why mess with success?


  1. Congrats! Moving out of that obese area of the bMI feels awesome!

  2. congrats! Amazing how those BMI categories make us feel bad/good about ourselves. "Normal" for my height starts at 149.

    1. I know ir's arbitrary (why the nice round numbers), but I really wanted out from under that label.

      At my height, 155 is the top of "normal," and that's my goal.

  3. I must have missed this earlier in the week! Bloody awesome :)
