Leap Day Weigh In!

Hi all!

Wanted to start off by saying last night I was feeling really nasty. I felt as if some nasty bug were coming on and I was worried...a lot of nasty viruses and germs are going around. But I went to bed early and woke up before my alarm feeling good. I definitely think I've been fighting something off. Monday I didn't even feel like blogging *GASP!* I know! But thankfully I feel more in my groove now.

My therapist called this morning and asked to move up my appointment. So thankfully I had my littler hiney in gear and jetted off to Jenny Craig a few minutes early. Once again they messed up my appointment. Seriously, for over 2 months now they have consistently either not scheduled me at all or scheduled me at an incorrect time. But no matter, I went and I didn't buy much food at all... because...I bought a ton of yummy healthy things at Target yesterday!!!! I found these Lean Cusine steamers and I think I'm in love...

They are these perfectly packaged meals that steam up in minutes and are super yummy!! I had the mushroom tortoloni and it was amazing. One thing I have to say is they have very high sodium so I really cut back the rest of the day and increased my fluid...so I was able to stay within my sodium limits. But this is something in general you have to watch with any prepackaged meals. Jenny Craig is fairly good with keeping the sodium at an acceptable level but it's something to watch! I also got myself some lowfat Cedarlane burritos.

They're approx the calories of a Jenny Craig meal and are filling and delicious, I also got some fat free plain greek yogurt to put on instead of sour cream! Plus my freezer is still chock full of boca burgers and other healthy goodies. YUM!

So you're probably sick of reading my rambles and want to know how I did this week...


Starting Weight: 266.2
Weigh In: 261.2 (-5 HOLY MOLEY!)
Target Weight: 240
Pounds Until Goal: 21.2
Yes, I lost FIVE WHOLE POUNDS. WOW!!!!! I know I had some fluid retention after I flew home but I ate well, even when I went out to dinner. And I walked every day even though I didn't do any hardcore exercise. So...it paid off. YIPEE!

I can't believe I've lost a total of 48.8 pounds... I am literally 1.2 pounds away from being at a total loss of 50 pounds. Honestly, I can't believe it. When I started back in July...I never expected to make it this far. It's because of all you wonderful motivational people (and some hard work on my part) that this has been possible. So THANK YOU! <3333

Looking forward to an awesome week! YAY!


  1. That is an AWESOME loss. Way to go! Keep up the momentum :)

  2. YAY! I'm soooo proud of you! You rock my world Katelyn!

  3. I am amazed! You did good Kate. You did real good.

  4. Wow Kate I just stumbled across your blog. Way to go- fifty pounds is a huge accomplishment! I think it's so brave to put it all out there on the internet and really hold yourself accountable. You're an inspiration!

    Have you ever heard of Ben Does Life, or the Do Life movement? He did a similar thing and tracked his 120 lb journey. I actually met him and went for a run with him in Canada (best day ever) Anyways thought you might find his blog interesting.

    Keep it up, and congrats again!
