Weigh-In & #amerryworkoutpledge

Starting weight: 313.8
Last week's weight: 291.6
This week's weight: 283.0
Loss: -8.6

Total loss: -30.8

Wow... honestly, I don't know where this came from. I was anticipating a loss, being sick and all... I haven't been eating much. I am feeling better, but still not 100% and for those of you counting this is day 6... I should be all better by now :-(

So I'm now 0.2 pounds away from my 10% goal. I would like to maintain it for a week before collecting my 10% keychain.

Really? I'm happy (super excited) about losing this weight. But I am having doubts, I mean that is an absurd amount of weight to loose in one week. Like Biggest Loser type numbers we are talking about. Do I think I can sustain and possibly loose more next week? I am going to try, but I am doubtful. That is the most amount of weight I have lost in a single week. Something is off, whether it was being sick or not eating enough, I just feel a rebound coming next week.

Don't get me wrong, I am excited about my loss, to finally see the scale going in the right direction, but I am looking for long lasting weight loss, not the dramatic short term stuff...

I did manage to go to Zumba last night. I am finding that the ab work is coming a bit easier to me and I can do the exercise longer, I am happy about that. I did bring a box of tissues with me to Zumba, my friends thought I was crazy, but I really wanted to go and at least move a little, since I haven't done anything exercise/fitness related in almost a week! The bondi band held well and I am working on a review post. (Side note, I will never be a fitness model, the pictures of me are horrible!)

Logging onto twitter this morning I see that Steve, Kat Kerri and Mary are at it again! With there #amerryworkoutpledge (twitter hashtag). Go over to Steve's post and comment. For every comment between now and 4pm (Eastern Standard Time) will be 30 sec added to a cardio workout. Since I can't work out today, I am electing to do my pledge Friday day. How long will you make me work out Friday day ;-)

Be POSITIVE about your weight loss this week, because it's awesome! You WILL keep that weight off, and lose enough to get your 10% keychain. You WILL continue to better yourself in the next few weeks! As soon as you let the doubt in, your likelihood of success drops, so BE POSITIVE.

Wow! That's an impressive loss, I wish it wasn't due to sickies though :( Regardless, CONGRATS!

Glad you're joining in on the fun! This. Will. Be. Awesome!

Thanks for the comment luv peeps!

I am trying to be realistic in my weight loss, not doubtful. I am positive that I am on this journey for the long run, speed bumps be damned ;-)

I would be thrilled if I can keep up the loss! I am so excited to be on this journey!

I'm just getting over being sick and a major weight loss as well. I am waiting until next weigh day to make sure it sticks. I never know if I should count weigh ins when I'm sick. Good going though on the loss. I'm doing the #AMerryWorkoutPledge too! They are crazy over there with the comments. I could see this hitting 2 hours easy!
