I probably would have been down a couple more pounds (not complaining in the slightest though), but hubby made homemade shells and cheese (pretty sure he used a whole block of white cheddar and another half of provolone, along with heavy cream) the other day and I ate a ginormous pan of the leftovers last night. No regrets. It was really freaking yummy!!
First week of the Fall Fitness Challenge (starting weight also 240), so it will be good to see where I am in 8 weeks when it’s over. I only went to the gym once this week, even though my goal was to up to at least twice. For whatever reason (too many squats), I was really sore most of the week, and I’ve got a lot of stuff going on this weekend so probably won’t make it then either. Next week I will do better!!

Total Weight Lost: 146 pounds
After all the stress of the hurricane, I took a break and ate all the food this week. Whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I know a good bit of this is just water weight so it will drop back down soon enough. To be fair, the 231 I was at last week was due to not eating much of anything for several days, so I shouldn’t have even been that low to begin with. So not much worried about the gains.
I’ll be starting the Fall Fitness challenge at my gym on Monday, so I’ll have the motivation to get back on track. And I’ll probably start another HealthyWage challenge as well. So it will all be good.

So… this week’s weight loss is brought to you by hurricane Florence. Honestly, I was probably down close to 10 pounds at one point. When I weighed myself last Wednesday (the day we evacuated up to VA) I was at 229 due to not eating much of anything for days on end due to storm-related anxiety. It was another day or so before I could make myself start eating again (at which point, allowed myself to eat whatever the hell I wanted). Oddly, even then I didn’t really want much (even my Salted Caramel Oreos were kind of meh). Anyway, after a few days of random junk eating (but at least I was eating – so that counts for something) I was back up to 231, but again, not complaining. As much as I want to lose weight as quickly as possible, starving myself is not part of the plan. At least now that I’m back home (and the storm has passed), I can get back on a more regular eating schedule.
Week 73 Current Weight: 235
Pounds Lost This Week: 3
Total Weight Lost: 155 pounds
I was actually down to 233 pounds at one point this week, which freaked me out a little (being 5 pounds down and 3 days to go to weigh-in), so I increased my calories a bit towards the end of the week just to make sure I wasn’t way under-eating. Then hubby brought home Krispy Kreme yesterday, and that totally didn’t help. XD But definitely not complaining at all.
