Wednesday Weigh-in: Shrinkvivor Week #6

The past week has been busy!  Still not feeling on top of my game but we had a great weekend celebrating my birthday (yes, I like to draw out celebrations as long as possible!).  Still waiting on news from my rheumatologist on what medication we are going to try next so I am anxiously waiting for the phone to ring.

In other news, I officially registered for my first 5k as a member of Team Gluten-Free!  I will be running the Jingle Jog 5k which is a part of the Thunder Road Marathon event on December 11th!  I decided that I still wanted to take part even if I can’t run the whole thing.  Its really important to me to help raise awareness for Celiac as well as donations help to provide scholarships for children to go to Celiac summer camp where they can learn not only how to control their Celiac but know that they are not alone!

As usual, we had two challenges again this week – one physical and the other non-physical. The physical challenges are what count towards team immunity. This week’s physical challenge was to count your minutes – another challenge re-do.  While I was more active this week, I didn’t count minutes (awful I know).  I tried to walk as much as possible but didn’t know what to count as “active exercise.” For example, we did a lot of walking on Saturday at the zoo but I didn’t think that I could count it.  I also took several short walks with Abby but wasn’t sure about those either.

The non-physical challenge was to expose yourself.  You can check out my Exposed post here!  It was seriously a very liberating experience!  But I will be honest, I think I would have had a harder time doing it 37 lbs ago.  However I think I’ve made progress with accepting myself in the last 10 months that goes beyond the number on the scale.

So now onto the business at hand . . . This morning the scale said: 126.4! So I had a loss of 1 lb! So I am only 1.4 pounds away from my goal weight and puts my Shrinkvivor loss at 7lbs!!!! So hopefully I am able to stick around for another week!  I can’t believe I made it to week 6 without being exiled! One step closer to that awesome bike being mine!

So here are my stats:

Starting weight: 164.4

Challenge Starting Weight: 133.4

Challenge Goal Weight (11/2): 128

Last week’s weigh-in: 127.4
Today’s weigh-in: 126.4
Change: -1


Overall Change: -38

Challenge Change: -7

    You are doing so great at this challenge. I’m so proud to have you on my team.

    I’m so excited that you signed up for your first 5K. That is awesome. It doesn’t matter how fast you do it. The thing that matters is the money you are raising for a great cause and that you are doing it.
