Weigh-In #7

Weight: 204.8
Body Fat: 40.7
Hydration: 43.3

Difference: -3 lbs from last week
                 -0.1% Body Fat from last week

TOTAL LOSS: 13.6 lbs

What?!!? That is crazy! 3 Pounds!?!? You can imagine my shock when I stepped on the scale and saw this number. I stepped on several times and it kept coming up the same. I feel like my scale was acting wonky this morning, so I'm not sure if I trust it since that seems like a huge loss for the amount of exercise I did this week. But, I am happy for now!

My goal for March is to get under 200 lbs. On the first April weigh-in (April 1), I want to weigh 199.9 or less. I haven't been under 200 lbs in several years. It is always the point where I give up or start eating crap again and stop exercising. Not this time! :)

I'm losing an average of 1 lbs per week- sometimes I lose more (see above). I want to stay around 1-2 per week to avoid a lot of lose skin and stretch marks. Is anyone having issues with these? What are you doing to avoid them?

Hope you all have a great weekend! I may be able to post something this weekend, if I have time. But, if not, I will leave you with some sweet words of wisdom.


  1. You reached my next goal for me, Ha! I am trying so hard to get under 205 right now and you did it! Yipe!! 3 lbs is a hunk of weight for one week. Proud for ya Liz.

  2. And on the skin problem, yes, as I lose I am noticing my stomach rolls are hanging down and I am disgusted with how my stomach looks. Actually I am disgusted with how everything looks. I thought it would get better and maybe with a significant loss (another 30 maybe?) it will look better. I am exercising, trying to help it as much as I can.

  3. Well Done for the loss! That's brilliant.
    I am working out to do the best I can re skin etc but apart from that I'm letting go of it. I know this size weight loss is going to have repercussions on skin and I accept that. I am not going to die of stretch marks or saggy skin so its prefereable to where I am now. If there is anything I can do - I will and if not...I will live with it

  4. Hello there Lizzy. First of all congrats on your progress! Secondly, OMG you look so much like my cousin that when I saw your profile I thought it was her and said "oh cool she started blogging too". After a closer look I know its not her. Anyways, thanks for visiting my blog, following and leaving a comment. Just started reading your post,love them!
