Due to the Week in My Life series last week, I missed my weekly Shrinkvivor post but that didn’t mean that I didn’t check-in! Last week was a little depressing as I registered a gain of 1.4lbs (141.2) so I fully expected to be floating to Exile Island but by grace I got to stay a part of Tribe Gold.
I was really worried this morning when it came time to weigh-in. Pain this week has been very intense, specifically on my left side (where they found most of the damage). The pain is starting to shoot down my left leg (with some tingling & numbness) as well as having some bladder & GI issues so I’m having to go back to my dr/surgeon. They cannot see me until Halloween unless they have a cancellation so I am trying to be patient while I wait.
So here are the results from today’s weigh-in – 138.8! Down 2.4 from last week which puts me down 4lbs overall for the challenge! It was a great belated birthday gift! I was not able to log any exercise minutes bc of pain (boo!) but at least I feel like I was a little more successful as a part of my tribe this week! It definitely has me re-energized to really see those numbers continue to drop for the challenge! Go Tribe Gold!
Here are my stats:
Starting Weight: 142.8
Goal Weight: 135
Current Weight: 138.8

I was so excited when the Sisterhood announced that they were bringing back Shrinkvivor! I have loved all of the challenges they put together but by far Shrinkvivor was my favorite so I’m super excited to be on board again!
For this challenge, members are divided into tribes, just like on Survivor. Each Wednesday there is a weigh-in and a vote to cast one tribe member to Exile Island. However, each week there will be a challenge which winning can earn a team immunity! This weeks challenge is to count all exercise minutes!
For this challenge, I am super excited to be a part of Tribe Gold which is an awesome group of ladies! I’ve been cleared to resume physical activity (slowly of course) so this week’s challenge definitely gives me some motivation to start walking again, even if I start out with just 15 minutes at a time. My new treatment is still giving me a pretty rough time but this challenge will give me something positive to focus on so I’m really looking forward to it! I will be tracking my calories at MyFitnessPal and will be tracking my activity using DailyMile so feel free to friend me to keep me accountable!
As a part of the initial check-in, we are required to photograph our starting weights, so here we go:
So I’m not too happy to post this check-in. Honestly, I feel in some ways I’ve dropped into an emotional pit the last 4 or 5 days. I’m still waiting on test results so the waiting has my anxious. Illness has also made for some not too great communication on the home front so that has added to it. And the scale this morning proved the effects of emotional eating. Sigh.
I had a gain of 1.6lbs. So I’m back up to 135.8. I am not a happy camper. But the good thing I can take from this morning is a swift kick in the rear and motivated to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ve got my water bottle full and apples in the fridge to snack on (instead of chocolate and peanut butter deliciousness that seems to call my name when I’m stressed). Seriously, I need you all to find me on twitter in the afternoons and ask me what I’m drinking! If I know someone is going to be asking, I know I will stick with it!
This week’s mini-challenge is to eat your fruits and veggies. Fruits I typically don’t have a problem with but veggies are an issue so I will have to work really hard this week to make this a habit!
