The Friday Report

So typically, now would be the time that I reported in on my weekly weigh in, but lately I've found that I've been spending way too much time with my scale obsessing about every minor fluctuation. 

Today I decided to get back to how I started.  Once a week I'll pay a visit to the scale and see how things are going instead of it being a daily obsession.  

Last Monday, I started a 12 week challenge on My Fitness Pal.  I think for the duration of the challenge, I'll stick with it's Monday weigh ins.  So no weigh in today. 

As for the challenge, I had a very successful first week.  I was able to burn over 3600 calories, I averaged over 12 glasses of water a day and I lost 6.6 lbs ending up the biggest loser (lbs) for the week.  I signed up to lose 36.8 lbs by July 2nd.  My own personal goal is to achieve that loss by June 21st.  Why June 21st?  That will be the one year anniversary of my epiphany.  That was the day that I went to the doctor, saw 390 when I got on the scale and realized that I had to make some major changes in my life.

When I'm successful, I'll have lost 150 lbs.  Here's hoping the rest of the challenge is as successful as the first week. 


  1. Tamara,

    Heres to a great week!
