Goals, Weigh In

Weigh In – And A Week Eating Low Carb

I weighed myself this morning – and I’m right at 243 pounds. This works well for my 33 by 33 project – my goal is to lose 33 pounds before my 33rd birthday in January. I have decided to go “low-carb” for a week or two. I’ve done this before and I find that it’s a pretty good way to curb my appetite, shed a little water weight, and jump start the weight loss.

I’ve picked out this week’s state park – and I’ll let you know all about it in my next post. I can’t wait to hit a new trail! I cannot explain to you how much I enjoyed last week’s “adventure”. I’ve purchased a can a bug spray, a little notebook for writing down my thoughts, and a new pair of boots.

If you haven’t visited No Credit Needed, check it out – I purchased a newer minivan for our family. I have been really, really stressed thinking about this purchase, and I’m glad to have it behind me. (Isn’t it strange how we eat when we are stressed – and then we just get more stressed because we’ve eaten so much!?!)

  1. Ah, your last sentence sums up one of the most frustrating vicious cycles in weight loss: eating…a lot and stress!
    You’re not alone in that department!
    Have fun on your hike!

  2. That’s so true. I wrote about something like that yesterday.

    I’m pulling for you! I hope that when you’re hiking this week you will consider thinking about exercise and nutrition as a way of life.

    Have you thought about how you are going to live once you’ve lost the 33 pounds?

  3. Have you considered weight watchers? I’ve been doing it and it’s been horribly slow going like 1 lb or less a week. But it’s coming off slowly. I am a yo-yo dieter too. It’s a constant battle. I don’t think there is any other way for me other than being accountable to WW, going to a meeting, weighing in, etc.

    I even made a friend in the meeting, who we made a deal to show up every week even if it’s a horribly bad week and we’ve gained weight. We still go. A friend lost 50+ lbs doing WW and has kept it off for almost 6 months, it took a little over 1 year. She still goes to the meetings.
