The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (Weigh-in #7)

No, no, I’m not talking about the Clint Eastwood movie (which, sidenote, I’ve never seen.) I’m just trying to be clever in the title and format of this post. You know how I do, hahaha. Here we go! 😉

The Good:

It’s Monday, which means I weighed in this morning when I woke up. No use beating around the bush:

220.8 lbs!

So that brings me down 4 pounds this week!! Can you believe it? Guess that mile I ran on Wednesday went a lot farther than I thought (no pun intended, ahaha!) I actually didn’t think I’d have lost much this week, especially because I had pizza last night (!!) but it worked out, I guess!

So, that brings us to 25.2 total lbs lost to date, and surpasses my initial goal of losing 10% of my body weight! I’m only .8 pounds away from my other initial goal of 220. Progress!!

The Bad:

So despite this awesome news from my weigh-in, I can’t be completely, totally blissed out about it, because I feel like crap. I don’t even fully know what’s wrong with me, I just know that I feel awful – things keep bouncing between my head, stomach, throat, uterus (yes, it may be TMI, but hey, you know my weight, you can know about my TOM too, haha) and in general I just feel really sick.

So I stayed home from work today, but I know I need to go in because my boss is leaving for a conference tomorrow through the rest of the week. I’ll see how I feel in an hour or so and try to pull out a half-day. So yeah, a slight damper on my excitement, sigh.

The Ugly:

So there was an additional damper on my excitement from my weigh-in this morning. Apparently Daxter could sense that I was feeling sick, so my puppy got sympathy sick with me and threw up. Luckily I was able to grab him and bring him into the bathroom before he vomited all over my bedspread. Of course, once he got in there he moved from the easy-to-clean tile onto the floor mat, but whatever. Better than my comforter! He’s still been a little lethargic too, but then again, I have lazy dogs. So I’ll have to keep an eye on him but I’m sure he’ll be fine.

So this morning has been a little bit of a roller coaster for me. Hopefully I’ll be feeling in tip-top shape soon though so I can be as ecstatic as I should be about my loss for the week!


  1. I’m sorry you woke up not feeling good AND Daxter decided to join in the fun with a pukefest. But at least your weigh in was FANTASTIC! i’m super proud of you still for sticking through this. And, can’t complain about the amazing results you’ve seen!

  2. Aww I’m sorry you’re feeling sick! I was sort of wondering where the dogs were this morning! Maybe there was just too much excitement about Stella and Halloween last night for everyone to handle! I hope you feel better soon! At the very least, tomorrow night will be awesome because of GLEE! 😀 But congrats on the weigh in!

  3. so sorry your sick! lame to have to tend to a sick dog when you’re down. Congrats on all the weight loss that’s so cool!

  4. Aww. I am so sorry you were feeling sick but so excited about your lost 4 pounds!!
