STSC Results - Week 9

man I was tossing and turning last night. I wish I'd gotten a better nights sleep and wasn't so tired now, I think it would have made a difference to my numbers.

Weight lost this week: -1.7kg/3.7#
Total Challenge weight loss: -8.2kg/18#

The crazy thing about this (emphasis on the word 'crazy') is that I'm actually disappointed with what would usually be an awesome loss, mostly because (as you an see from my newly truthful sidebar) it doesn't completely undo the damage from last week, so I'm not at my low point. I feel like seeing as I worked my ass off for this I should have made it back to my previous weight. Nothing I can do about it now I suppose.

Speaking of working my ass off, I did with exercise this week. I went on the treadmill every single day, and have seen a definitely improvement.

  1. Good for you on the loss, and I wouldn't spend too much time beating yourself up for something you cannot change.

    You'll get there, and a loss is a loss is a loss. You slipped and got right back on there.

    Getting on the exercise thing each day is a struggle for me, especially with summer holidays and wanting so badly to sleep late.

  2. The week before last I only had a 1 lb loss. But, a loss is a loss! Be happy regardless of how much it is!

    I've increased my exercise and have noticed a difference also! It makes me feel better to. Does it do that for you?

  3. Don't beat yourself up over it. We are 'undoing the damage' of years and years of bad decisions and lack of concern for our own health, this will not change over night. You have done well, focus on that. Here's to a great week!

  4. We can beat ourselves up for not getting rid of the pounds we put on but how does that help? It will only make us disappointed and that makes us lose focus. The important thing is that you got back on track, did your exercises and managed to lose most of the weight gained last week. Next week, you'll be able to get rid of the rest of that put-on weight and then some. :)

  5. I think you're doing great. Maybe it's not what you had hoped for, but progress is progress. If I would get on that treadmill every day for a week, I'm sure I would see a difference, too. So today I'm going to do it, then try it again tomorrow. Thanks for your nice comments over at my place. It's just a bump in the road.

  8. I usually sleep like a rock but I was still up tossing and turning at 4 am. Hopefully we'll both be in dreamland tonight. Congrats on your progress. You'll be back to your lowest and hitting new lows soon ( that doesn't sound right but I know you know what I mean).

  9. Weight loss will eventually slow to a crawl as you get closer to goal. So, a handle on getting happy with even a minimal loss is a skill we all need to develop. The days will come when you'll only lose 1 l lb or less a week, and it will STILL be something to be happy about. So, tell your brain: This is great. I've lost a BIG number. Because, the truth is, you did lose a large number. Some of us never or rarely see that kind of weekly loss. Nearly 4 pounds. If you can't celebrate over THAT, then there is attitude dysfunction!!! Come on! Jump up and down and go, "Hey, hey, I rock the big one!" :)

    Later, Z..sleep well...

  10. We have to deal with the consequences of our indiscretions even though it is tough. "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time" - you are back on the right track. Things work out when we stay with our plan. There will be another good loss this week and that will help your emotions I am sure.

  11. way to go on the loss. I hear you about the not being at your low, but you will get back there and you will move past it with strength, determination and grace.
