Weigh In Wednesday #3

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

Well, it is the end of the Shrink into Summer Challenge at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I joined during the last three weeks and have faithfully lost a pound each week.

As I mentioned in my previous post I learned the hard way last week that weigh in after respite night is not pretty nor an honest picture of how I am doing. I hold salt like crazy and restaurant meals seem to be packed with them so I am always bigger the next day, even if I stay on track with my calorie allowance. I now weigh in the day before respite night so my weigh in Wednesday is really a Tuesday. (Funny--that used to be my Weight Watchers meeting day.) I then drink my weight in water the next day to flush the salt out and de-puff myself.

I also found that being brutally honest on my food journal, for better or worse, is really helping me keep on track. I can't say enough good things about The Daily Plate. I am Prairieknitwit there. If you are a member, friend me and we can snoop on each other's journals.

So, without futher ado. here are my stats so far:

Beginning Weight: 166.4 lbs
Finishing Weight: 163.4 lbs
Percentage lost: 1%

Doesn't look like much, but I am only beginning. Just wait until the next challenge!


  1. i'm a daily plater too. not sure how to friend someone but i'll figure it out (if not - i'm boonenme come looking for me!)

  2. I gotta check this daily plater out!

    Not much!! Since joining you have lost weight each week! Excellent work!! Keep it up:)

  3. You have lost weight each week and THAT is something. Congrats!

    Our next challenge begins in two weeks- get ready!!!!!

  4. Awesome job! A steady loss of a pound a week is great!! Keep up the good work!

    I weigh in on Tuesdays, too. And usually Monday nights is my weakest as far as resisting snacking goes! For me, it's totally mental; it's PURELY because the next day is weigh-in day! Nothing like a little weekly self-sabotage! ;)

  5. Congrats on your loss! That is great! I hold water too when I go to restaurants! It's insane! But I've found that if I chug water the next day, it comes right off again! Make sure to drink your water!

    You're going to rock our next challenge!!

  6. You are doing great! Keep up the good job and those numbers will continue to slip away!!

  7. Great job losing weight each week!

  8. Congratulations!!! I think you are doing FANTASTIC.
