less of me

by MrsFatass on June 11, 2010

So, here we are. Friday. Weigh In Day.

Like I said, throughout the week I’ve had some pretty crazy highs and lows on the scale. It’s been quite a ride for this Fatass who weighs her self like eleventymillion times a day. Some people have scale rituals – anyone remember Carlos and his tappity-tappity and his stepping on the scale 3 times? – but I don’t. I guess it would be hard to have a ritual eleventymillion times a day. Somebody would have to call that show. What’s it called? It’s like Hoarders, but for people with OCD?

Anyhow. Trophy Husband went first. He’s down 3. Which was great for me because usually dieting with him is like that commercial where the couple switches to diet soda and the cartoon guy gets skinny, and the cartoon girl gains a pound. So the fact that it was something normal and not something Biggest Loser-ish made me happy. Yes. I’m selfish like that.

Me? Well I weighed in at 212. Down 2.

I’m about 94% happy. I feel like I worked harder than that, what with the dealing with stress in healthy ways and not with alcohol and refried beans. And the working out even with sick kiddos. And the braving the Carolina heat and humidity to actually be outside. Like, with no air conditioner.

I’m also dealing with a little time of the month issue which I like to call timeofthemonth.

But I’ll take it. Down 2. There is officially less of me to love.

Okay. So I’m faced with another weekend. I’m going to keep my goals for surviving it simple and just about the same as last week. Three workouts of the cardio variety, and I’m going to shoot for an additional 2 of resistance. Aside from my morning coffee, I am only going to drink water. I’m going to stay out of restaurants for now, too.

One day at a time.

Have a great weekend, ya’ll.

Congrats on making healthy choices. It is by changing our thinking and making our behavior conscious that we have weight loss success permanently and get off the roller coaster!

I used to weigh myself a gazillion times a day, moving the scale around to find that "sweet" spot that showed the minimum number on the scale. I was fanatic about it!

For me, it is better to weigh no more than about once a month. That gives me an objective marker while at the same time takes the focus off the bloody number (which isn't really the important thing, is it?)

This has really helped to stop judging myself based on someone else's measure of what healthy looks like.

Keep up the great work…and keep in mind thattimeofmonth often ADDS pounds to us…so next time you weigh you may get a bonus drop!

Now you know darn well, having been at this for some time like me, and well the rest of us – that 1 lb a week loss is great, good steady weight loss and more than that, isn't sustainable long term – 1 lb a week is 54 lbs in a year – that's a first grader give or take 5 lbs. So 2 lbs is awesome! Especially at your TOM. Celebrate every loss – say goodbye to it forever!

I called the Departments of Weights and Measures and they said that they would immediately add eleventymillion to their data base of measures and promptly send you a check for eleventymillion dollars! Congrats!

Oh, and way to go on the loss too! 🙂 Who rocks? C'mon….WHO????

Dude! I was just thinking about Carlos yesterday. You should email him and see how he is doing.

Nice loss! Eleventymillion is A LOT of weighing… wow!

2 pounds is solid and healthy, yo. Keep it up! And I'm with you on the weekend goals. It's especially important for me to get my workouts in when I wake up b/c it's all about family in town AND working this weekend. Cheers and have fun, too!

Oh, be happy with 2 pounds. 100% happy. That's awesome…especially to those of us who are lucky to lose .0002 pounds in one week 🙂

Awesome loss!

You know, with all the fems I follow and all the TOM discussion, I get so confused that it is the same person in perpetual TOM. Also, it seems like I unpacked my bags in some sorority…much better bathrooms than the fraternity.

Wholy comments! 2lbs is nothing to turn your nose up at. You earned it. Way to go. Now if only I could figure out how to make my scale obey me. Perhaps you could have a little chat with her and set her straight for me? 🙂

Two down is awesome! What is more important are the changes that you are making. The good habits are what leads to long lasting success and the number on the scale follows.

I refuse to let the number on the scale define my success, it is only part of the whole picture.

Here is to less of you!(somehow that does not sounds as nice as I mean it too!)
