weekly weigh in

Filed under: keeping it real, nutrition, weigh in — karena @ 12:08 pm

Hey, look over there. <—– See that button? It's about freakin' time!

Last week: 164.0
This week: 163.5

Small changes, I know. Apparently I am the tortoise in this race. But isn't he the one that wins in the end? I need to keep reminding myself that weight lost fast usually comes back. And that slower is surer, and probably healthier. Yadda, yadda, yadda. No, really, I am pleased. Just we've all heard all those things, so many times before, haven't we?

What? You think if I gave up my nightly glass(es) of wine I might be moving a little faster? Well, you want to know what I think??

Sigh. I think you're right. Tell you what, I'll give up my wine for a week if you pledge to give up something as well. Your evening screwdriver, or that little bowl of ice cream you've been indulging in nightly, or those chips you've been sneaking. Yeah, that's right, I'm talking to YOU. Takers?



  1. congrats on moving it in the right direction. i’m not sure what i’d give up…i don’t have one weakness. just splurging in general.

  2. A loss is a loss is a loss! Good job! You’re doing great.

  3. Any loss is good, but I understand how you feel!!!

    Give up your wine, and I’ll give up my evening bowl of cereal. Deal?!

  4. Oooh, I’m trying to think about what I’d give up. I’m not really a snacker. Okay, how about this, you can have your wine, BUT you have it only three nights this week instead of every night? And I’ll try to think of something I’ll give up.

    Still, you lost and that’s great! Keep it up!!

  5. Thanks for the support, guys!

    Christy –you’re on!

    April — thanks for the camaraderie. But I know me. If I have a bottle of wine in the house, it will task me. It will call to me. Better to just do without.

  6. Hey every little bit counts…and you are right “they” always say if the weight comes off slow it stays off, but we are a society of “instant gratification” we want everything RIGHT NOW!

    As far as giving up something — um how about I give up my little indulgence of my skinny cow ice ceam bars, that have been calling my name this week! Only 100 calories, but they do add up over time! I’m sure I can do it and so can you!!
