Throwback Monday (Weigh-in)

Morning, everybody! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine consisted of helping (well, mostly watching) Steve move and watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II… again.

I’m dubbing this post as a throwback because you lucky ducks are looking at a classic Weigh-In Monday post. No frills, just some down & dirty weight-posting (every woman’s dream!) since it’s been a while between official weigh-ins (mostly out of shame, I’d say, haha.)

So without further adieu, here you go!

Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last “Official” Weigh-in: 196.5 lbs
Unofficial Wednesday Weigh-in from last week: 192.5 lbs
This Week’s Weight: 191.2 lbs
This Week’s Loss: -5.3 lbs (HA!) or -1.3 lbs, depending on how you look at it.

Either way, I’LL TAKE IT! I know that I didn’t really gain 4.5 pounds solely from the Fourth of July weekend, but it was still pretty jarring to see that number pop up on the scale the morning after. (It’s like the dieter’s equivalent of the walk of shame, hahaha.) So hopefully now this means that the holiday weekend overindulging has been balanced out, and quite a bit of not-so-hot eating this past weekend (what else is new, eh?) I still actually managed to lose weight! Huzzah!

Thankfully this morning’s weigh-in, in conjunction with the magic that is Harry Potter and the most perfect movie conclusion ever, I think I’m officially out of my gloomy funk and back on track. Literally!

The 180s are so close I can almost taste them. This is my promise to you (or, you know, more appropriately, my promise to myself): I WILL be out of the 190s by this time next week. This is happening. Time to pull out all the stops!


Get ready, scale. Thundercats are GO!


    • The Harry Potter diet. I’m telling you.

      • Hahaha true dat. Ps. When you go to Wizarding World (which I know you will), hit me up for eating tips. They have some delicious stuff there!

  1. What a great way to start your week! Glad to hear nothing but good news.

    I’ll be seeing Harry Potter this Friday. Julia and I decided to let the hardcore fans have their week before us regular fans invade the theatre.

    • Psh, and you call yourself a fan! 😉

  2. Congrats!! I’m glad you’re out of your funk. Good luck with the weight loss this week, I know you can hit the 180s by this time next week!!

  3. Looks like you are back on track! Activity level up and portions under control and you’ll get there!! Been showing off your beach pictures to various people who have not been following your progress ( shame on them.). Some jaw dropping and ear-burning compliments! Keep it up!!

    • Hahaha, shame on them indeed! Hopefully it is all good things that they’re saying….

    • Hahaha, as much as I’d like to say I lost over 5 lbs in 1 week…. 😀

    • Thanks Kristin! Here’s hoping it keeps up…!

    • I’m just anxious to get out of this frackin’ decade. It’s been TOOOOOO long!

  4. ahhaha I weighed in at 191.2 today too!!! we need to be weigh in buddies. Ill keep you accountable (although you dont seem like you need it!)
    Keep it up!!!

    • Yay! We should start a friendly competition to keep us both on track (believe me, I *DO* need it!!)

  5. That is totally awesome! So exciting! Rooting for you big time!

  6. I know you can do it! 180’s!!!!

  7. Yay! Congrats! I have to admit, I’m a little envious! My weigh ins are going in the opposite direction these days. 🙁

    Good luck, I know you’ll break into the 180’s soon! 🙂

  8. Congrats! You’ll be in the 180s in no time!

  9. Woo hoo! Great job. 🙂
    I’m getting my a** back on track, as of yesterday. So far, so good.

    This Harry Potter diet you speak of…? I’m guessing it doesn’t consist of the Butterbeer Cupcakes that I’ve seen making the rounds on the the Interwebs, does it?

    (Saw the movie Sunday morning – and cried like a freaking baby at the end… but LOVED it). 🙂



  1. Close, but no cigar. | Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! - [...] part of today’s play comes in the following. As you know, last week I weighed in at 191.2 pounds…
