I weigh in daily when I’m working on my health like this because research shows that’s the most effective way to be successful with weight loss. It definitely keeps it in the forefront of my mind and makes it obvious how different food and drink choices affect my body. If I see it trending up for more than a day or two, it also motivates me to dial it in again as well!
Last Wednesday I was at 184.7, and over the following days it fluctuated up and down – 181.9, 182.4, 184.3, 182.1, 184.2, 182.4, 183.5. I’m totally okay with the daily fluctuations as I know that it’s reflective of hydration, salt retention, my period, swelling from a strenuous workouts, etc. It is nice to see the overall trend is down each week though!

I did much better on getting in my protein this week, and I got 5 workouts in as well, so I’m happy with my week. It’s always a balance of enjoying life (drinks and dancing on Saturday with friends was awesome!) and moderation in life overall, isn’t it?
Another week on the books, and I’m 32% of the way to my first big goal. Whoop whoop!
You are making great progress! Good for you. 🙂
Perseverance is harder than it seems like it should be when we want something as badly as we want to be at some kind of happy weight….so good job, JJ. I’m proud of you for just putting one foot in front of the other and finding a balance that works. I also like your doable, reachable goals that aren’t off the charts or crazy. Very sensible of you. 😉 Well done.
Thanks, Mom. <3
You’re an inspiration to me! You’re killing this! Way to go 🙂
