Early Weigh-In This Week

I decided to go ahead and weigh in today instead of tomorrow. As I mentioned earlier in the week, I'm scheduled to go out to dinner with my friend Chris tonight....the only night that worked for both of us while he's in town for a few days. I'm not even going to deal with a "fake" gain tomorrow due to the sodium in my restaurant meal tonight. I've been known to gain 5-6 "fake" lbs overnight just from sodium in one meal. No thank you, lol.

So....this morning the scale reads 228.0, for a loss of 1.8 lbs. this week! Knowing I've had a little cold all week and have done NO exercise, I'm happy that I still had a decent loss. I'm looking forward to hitting the gym again tomrrow and seeing what a week of exercise gets me!!

This completes my 5th month on my weight loss travels and I have a total loss of 5 lbs. this month. I'm only 1 lb. away from my next 15 lb. mini goal. If I lose at least 1 lb. next week, then it will be time for my next reward! I'll be posting pics tonight of my dinner out with Chris. Have a fabulous day! :)

***A message for blog reader Steelers6....I know you've asked me to respond to a couple of your comments but when I click on your name, I can't find a profile or blog for you, so I don't know how to reach you!! Please email me at the gmail addy listed on my sidebar, and I will be more than happy to answer all of your questions...thanks! :)


  1. Congrats on your loss this week, Tammy! You're really rolling right along with the weight loss - very cool!

  2. A pound and a half is fantastic! You're doing great!

  3. Way to go on the 1.8 lbs this week, that's terrific. I also wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog the other day. It really hit home with me that I have to start realizing what I'm doing right and not focus on the negatives. I hope you have a wonderful time with Chris tonight, enjoy your night out.

  4. Fantastic Tammy...thats so good...
    I also weighted in today and am down from Monday, but by next Monday I will be more than I am today...
    I dont seem to be able to lose at the moment, only maintain within about 2kgs...so frustrating.

    Enjoy your dinner out tonight...watch the salt...and dont over eat or make bad choices, so not worth it.
    While I was losing I kept telling myself that food was always going to be there, so if I didnt eat it now I could when I was in a better position to...so try remember that as well...
    You are on the way towards your goal...

  5. You are doing so good. Keep it up. Enjoy your time with your friend.

  6. Congratulations on hitting the next decade!

  7. Yay Tammy,
    You are doing fabulously! Congrats!
    Enjoy your time out tonight.
    Thanks for the thoughtful comments you leave on my blog, it means a lot. I am posting a little story about the name "CrowNology" later...

  9. That's a totally decent loss. Enjoy your dinner with your friend.

  10. Well done on your loss! Have a lovely time tonight!

  11. 1.8 pound loss a day early is fabulous!! Congratulations and have a great dinner with your friend!

  12. Congrats on your loss!! Have fun at dinner tonight:)

  13. Congrats on the loss! And have a wonderful dinner. Enjoy, but don't go overboard.lol Advice easier to dish out than it is to follow I know! I too have suffered from the impossibly huge weight gain over night syndrome. If it makes you feel any better, it could also be attributed to the fact that you still have food in your system. Undigested I mean. Still doesn't make the scale look any better just knowing that I know!
    Anyway, you are doing awesome, and can't wait to read about dinner. Bring us some food porn will you? I haven't eaten out in such a very looooong time!

  14. Good job, Tammy! That's three weeks in a row that you've shown losses. Have fun at your dinner tonight, and make good choices. ;)

  15. Awesome Tammy! Enjoy your visit with Chris :-)
