Creeping in the right direction! And Question!!!

Hello friends!

I meant to get on yesterday and restart my "Monday Weigh-In" posts but totally forgot. So this week it will be my Tuesday Weigh-In. As most of you know, I get on the scale more frequently than I probably should. I usually weigh myself every morning and every night before I go to bed.

Why do I weigh myself at night you may ask. I sometimes find it interesting to see how much less I weigh in the mornings compared to the night before. Sometimes it will be one pound less in the morning and like this morning, after using the bathroom of course, the scale read 2.5 pounds less! I'll take it!

My weight this morning was 178.2 pounds.

My goal is to be 160 by my birthday in April, approximately 11 weeks from now. That means I need to lose about 1.6 pounds each week. Because I have been in the 170's for about 5 months now, this isn't going to be easy. It means hard work.

And speaking of hard work, we are going to the Melting Pot for my boyfriend's birthday this weekend so that should be interesting. I guess I will be saving up all my calories for the day on dinner! No seriously.


It was so exciting to hit the 170's but I am ready to move on. The 190's came and went pretty fast...within like 2 months. The 180's took me about 4 months to conquer. But these 170's are tough.

Did any of you have this same problem? How long did it take you to conquer the few pounds keeping you from your goal weight?

I would love to know!! Have a terrific Tuesday!


  1. You're doing amazing... and I will answer your question when I know about 3 or 4 years from now... LOL

  2. The last 10-15 lbs for me were slow losing...a pound a week if I was lucky. Hang in there...you can do it! :)
