E2E Weekend update (Week 3)

Happy Weekend, everyone!!

This week was looking pretty good!
Numbers on the scale!!

12/31/11 - 122kg         268,9 lbs
01/07/12 - 121,1 kg     266,9 lbs (-2 lbs)
01/14/12 - 120,5 kg     265,6 lbs (-1,3 lbs)
01/21/12 - 119 kg        262,3 lbs (-3,3 lbs)

I'm so happy with these numbers. I'm aiming for 2 lbs a week so this is looking really good.

Waist measurements have stayed the same. 46.8 inches

My workouts were sadly lacking again this week. I went to aerobic class twice this week and went out for a walk/run only once.

Like I've said before I track with My Fitness Pal and it wasn't working for me a few days this past week. So I looked into a site called Calorie Count and I really like the way they break down my nutrients - they tell me what I haven't had enough of (like fiber) and what I've had too much of (like sodium or carbs). But since I've already logged so much in MFP, that's where I'm back at today.

My average daily calories have been between 1400 and 1800 calories a day.

I'm still reading Made to Crave, and the chapter I just read is about how important accountability is. I think all of us participating in this challenge can agree with that.

Betty also sent me her copy of The One Day Way, by Chantel Hobbs. After reading her first book Never Say Diet, I finally had the hope and encouragement I needed to start losing weight again (that was in October 2010), and I'm really liking this book, too. Thanks Betty!

On the support... I've been reading your blogs every day. Thursday, I had set time aside to read and comment on my fellow challengers, and the internet was down. So, I didn't get in all the commenting I wanted to, Sorry!

My buddy Julie, has been struggling. I wish I were closer so I could help her out if I could. Please send her some encouragement. I know many of you already do!

Julie, I wish I could give you that big hug you need! I know Someone is there for you right now. Just take it one day at a time. Enjoy Mike every chance you have, because you know how much you'll cherish those memories when he's away.

Today has been a little difficult for me. I had an appointment with my ob/gyn and will have to see another specialist as soon as he's available. I've been bleeding for about 10 days now and since it didn't look like it would stop anytime soon, I decided to have it checked out. I've been really tired these last few days, and I'm assuming it's the blood loss. Hoping for an opening next week so I can get on with my life. But like I said... one day at a time.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. You got it. One day at a time. It´s helped me so much, to think that way.
    I hope you get an appointment soon and they find out what´s the matter.
    Congrats on your great loss this week!!

  2. Awesome weight loss! I would be shouting from the roof-top if I lost 3lbs in a week! Sorry to hear about you doctors visit. Never ending periods suck. Try and eat some fruits and veggies high in iron to help get your strength back.

    Let us know how the DR. visit goes...

  3. A great loss. And you got your exercise in. And thank you Casey for your support. I do appreciate it tons.
    I hope your doctor gets you period figured out. They stink in the first place but to have one forever...that's worse.
    Take care and God Bless!!!

  4. wow, you had a great weight loss. You are doing great! Hope, you will feel better soon and the doc will find out what the problem is with your health. Hopefully it's nothing serious. Wuensche dir viel Kraft fuer die naechste Woche.

  5. A wonderful week's loss, congratulations. And work on the exercise. We lose a lot of lean tissue dieting (a lot, the studies are NOT pleasant), so keep your exercise and protein up to preserve lean mass as you become Slim Casey, K? :D

    be well and continue to kick butt!

  6. If I could have a 3 lb loss week...sigh. But you're doing great. In spite of your health problem and tiredness, I'm so glad you got some exercise in. I'm trying to re-focus on that. Keep up the good work!

  7. You can adjust which nutrients you follow on MFP. When you log calories you can change it to see fiber, carbs, sugar, fats, sodium... anything really. Open up the food tab and then select settings on the top right. Then you can change what you'd like to see. :)

    Your weight loss is awesome this week! I hope you're feeling good!

  8. Keep us posted on the docs appt!!
    Set some workout goals, and push yourself!!
    Great weight loss!!
    LOVE the booK!!!

  9. Great loss!! Hope the MD appointment goes weel and move that body:)

  10. Great loss, hope you are feeling better soon. It's hard to focus on diet & exercise when you have medical issues going on but hang in there:-)
