chronic styleweight loss

Wednesday Weigh-in: Shink into Summer #7

Only one more week of the challenge!  Ah!  I can’t believe it!  It has truly flown!  For me personally, it has definitely been my most successful challenge as I actually reached my goal!  With a little help from Celiac of course.  As much as I really wish I reached my goal because of my steadfast adherence to a healthy diet and daily exercise, I can’t.  The side effects of Celiac were definitely in my favor for this challenge.  But I’ve still gotten my butt in gear and have completed 3 weeks of C25K already and am determined to see it through and begin running some 5ks this fall!

I wish I could say that I was super excited about the results of today’s weigh-in but I’m not.  Its my first gain of the challenge.  I am up 0.6 for the week which puts my weight at 138.8.  I was actually down when I hopped on the scale this weekend but my love of ice cream got the better of me the past two days.  So I’m just going to pick myself up, dust off, and get back at it.

In work out style news, I picked up some new work out clothes at no place other than wal-mart!  As much as I would love to go crazy at Nike getting gear (I PPH their tempo running shorts), its just not feasible at this moment so I browsed the Danskin area at Walmart and came across some cute shorts and tanks!  And I was so amazed my how much I like them once I got home!  The tanks (at an amazing steal of $4) were so flattering!  I felt so skinny!  And the shorts were comfy too!  So just in case you are looking for some budget-friendly work out apparel, you may want to check it out!  Back to the business at hand . . .

Here are my stats:
Starting weight: 164.4
Challenge starting weight: 146.6
Challenge Goal Weight: 140.0

Last week’s weigh-in: 138.2
Today’s weigh-in: 138.8
Change: +0.6

Challenge Change: -7.8
Overall Change: -25.6

If you haven’t noticed, I have created some pages that you can check out at the top of the far right column!  Once the new design is complete, I’ll have a menu bar but for the time being it will have to do!  Please check them out as I even have a page dedicated to my weight loss and 5k training!

    First off, your daughter is adorable! Now, your weight gain is negligible, don’t fret about it. It is summer and we are more inclined to a few indulgences. I’m glad that you’ve dusted yourself off and will keep moving forward. I really enjoyed c25k and I can’t wait to hear how you do in your firers 5k this fall. I say sign up for one now so you have a goal in mind!

    You have such a fantastic looking blog!

    I want to start on my way to weight loss but this would be my second time around.

    The first time I was 192 and went down to 150 and now I gained it all back so i feel so unmotivated!

    I need motivation!

    Good job on the loss…it’s still a loss! As for gear, I just got my first pair of the Tempo Tracks! Exciting…I love them! But good to know about Walmart. I buy stuff from Target but Walmart seems cheaper!!

  5. I’m totally checking out Walmart now. Thanks for the tip!

    Take your loss and run with it! Seriously. 🙂

    You’re doing so well with your training. Brush off the 0.6 and keep moving forward. And I love that you found cute, budget friendly workout gear at Wal Mart of all places. That’s terrific!

    What a positive attitude! You would never know that this was a “gain week” – albeit small! I love that you have the big picture in mind and are honoring all that you have accomplished! Keep up the great work and good for you as you train for 5Ks!

    Okay, your disease might have played a part in your weight loss, but all the work you put into it? That’s totally you. And for that you deserve a huge CONGRATS!!!


I love hearing from you!
