Week 17 Weigh In

Beginning Weight (12/20/2012)- 330.6

Last Week’s Weight – 295.4

Today’s Weight – 294.0

Total Weight Loss – 36.6

I need to come up with a new title for these or this is going to get repetitive REAL

Well I am down 1.4 pounds!

That is exciting!

Especially since I was pretty sure when I went to bed last night that I had gained this week or at best stayed the same.

Ever have one of those weeks where your calories are on point and you were fairly active (Not a normal "I am trying to lose weight" kind of active) but you just didn't feel like you had lost anything?

Well that is the week I had.

It didn't help that I got whatever crud my son had had on Tuesday...I was in bed for the entire day. It was nice to sleep all day but I felt...icky!

On too other news...

I finally bought new pants. I was getting tired of constantly pulling them back up!

I just bought some simple Faded Glory jeans and some JMS Bermuda capris.

When I started this journey I was wearing a 26W.

Two months ago I bought a pair of jeans that were size 24W. They were a bit tight but they fit. It hurt my hands to zip them up...but still they fit!

Today I bought a size 22W. I have the same zipper issue but I am pretty sure that it will only take a few weeks and that will be gone too.

The JMS Bermuda Capris are a 2X. That is an 18W/20W! They are a bit tight but I wanted to pick them up so that I would have pants that fit when I get smaller and in the summer!!!

I don't want to spend a whole bunch on clothes since they won't fit for long...but it is still nice! 


  1. isn't it such an awesome feeling to go down a size? Keep up the great work! I've done most of my clothes shopping at Goodwill. That way I don't feel bad when I was going through sizes quickly. Now that I've leveled off I'm buying some actual new clothes.

  2. So cool to go down in size and weight!!! Way to go!

  3. Nice loss! Good job! Congrats on smaller sizes :)

  4. Fantastic job. You're doing so well. :o)

  5. Yay, yay, yay!! Congrats on the new sizes. I tend to purchase 'cheaper' items, sale items, or go to an upscale consignment shop in the area (I don't care for Goodwill or Salvation Army.) Like you, I feel guilty about paying full price for my 'temporary' size.
