I did it! I achieved my weight loss goal with 0.1 pound to spare. My final weight out, as it is called, was 176.0 pounds. I actually was down to 175.8 the morning before, but we were not allowed to weigh in until the game was done.
We decided to move our winnings and fat butts over to the Mission Slim-Possible with Jen Widerstrom game. Same deal – lose 4% of your initial weight in four weeks. The bet is only $30 this time, but it was a large game, with more than 4,000 players, so hopefully we’ll have a chance to win a good amount of money this month.
After three days of splurging, I was sick of eating, but had put on a few pounds. 🙁 My initial weigh-in was 179.4 – and that was weighing in first thing in the morning. It’s amazing how much my weight can fluctuate over a few days. I wasn’t trying to “sandbag” by putting on weight, it’s just how much I was the morning I got the weigh-in word – legumes – in case you’re wondering. My goal for the end of the month is 172.2 So I have to lose 7.2 pounds to make my goal. I would really like to be down to 170 by the end of the month.
I’m starting a new rotation this week – OB/Gyn. It’ll have a different schedule that includes two days a week in surgery. That means two days a week of standing instead of sitting and two days a week with limited time to snack. You can’t have Doritos when you’re scrubbed in and sterile. I’m hoping that will help with weight loss. And, I intend to do at least two serious workouts a week, not just trying to get in enough steps by making extra trips when putting away laundry. We’ll see how it goes!
