Weigh in Saturday

Weigh in Saturday is not as fun as weigh in Wednesday... there were a ton of people running around at Jenny Craig and it was super busy. I felt rushed and kinda hurried. Plus I had my mom with me because we were going to go shopping afterward. So there was that added pressure...

But I weighed in and lost 1.6, WOO! I honestly was expecting to lose more...I feel like my clothes are so much looser. But Aunt Flow is definitely coming around the mountain and I may be retaining a little bit of fluid. Plus I slacked off a pit in the exercise department so...that isn't good. But I got in a LOT of walking today and that's a good start!

Starting Weight: 271.2
Weigh In: 269.6 - FINALLY BELOW 270! See the Picture Update in the side bar <3
Target Weight: 240
Pounds Until Goal: 29.6

My mom came over last night and helped me talk through some stress but I also made the decision to talk to a counsler. My insurance will cover all the visits...but first I have to meet my 1500 dollar deductible. Which is insane. So I need to see what I can afford for sure. I think it'll be a good idea to have someone to work through my stress with and to relax. I'm working on my physical health but I also want to work on my spiritual and emotional health as well. My birthday is coming up January 25th and it's really time for me to focus on myself. I've been focused on school and my patients and my job...but that's not the most important thing.

I went shopping at the Goodwill today for some new clothes in transitional sizes but I didn't have too much luck. I got a cute jacket and a pair of scrub pants. AND I got  a curves workout DVD for 3 bucks!!!! Then my  mom and I went to homegoods and I got Anne Burrell's cookbook. It looks really good and I feel I can make a lot of the recipes in a healthy way!

Lastly we went to Target and I got lots of goodies! I got things for Italy, I got workout gear. Check out some of my spoils! I got some healthy groceries, an air popper, and...

Balance ball with workout DVD and handweights for my 30DS and for working out! I also got some 5 pound weights too. Yay! Fun workout things to get me motivated to get my ass moving!


  1. Congrats on the loss! It is always good talking to someone about things - that's one of the things I want to do this year. We can't completely reach our physical goals while our emotional health isn't at its prime!

  2. Congrats on the weight loss!! And I LOVE the new picture. Those are the exact kind of jeans I like :)

  3. Great loss! I feel doomed to remain in the 240s forever! lol

  4. Woohoo.....into a new decade!
    I have a balance ball too, not as easy as it looks but fun.

  5. Good loss! And yay for fun new workout gear!

  6. Great job on losing! A ball and weights - that is fantastic! Now you can do some really great exercises at home :)
