The Lost Weigh-in

Between the logging of my weigh-ins on My Fitness Pal and reporting my %s of weight lost for Yelp’s Biggest Loser and, of course, all of the dancing around my bathroom that I do every time I have a loss, it only just occurred to me that I never actually blogged about my weigh-in from this past Friday!

Bad weight loss blogger! Bad Gretchen!

This is actually a reaction shot to experiencing my very first raw oyster this weekend (I did actually like it, once I got over the initial weirdness!), but I figured the expression was still apt, haha.

Anywho, rest assured that the information did not go unrecorded, so I’ll just catch you up right quick on my most recent foray onto the scale.

(Re)Starting Weight: 236.6 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 227.5
This Weigh-in: 226.2 lbs
Difference: -1.3 lbs

Hallelujah and blessed be, I have made it to the 10 pounds lost club yet again! I am a very happy camper indeed that I have yet to have a week without at least some kind of loss (although I know a gain or a stall will happen eventually, I’m just gonna be happy with what I’ve got for as long as I’ve got it!) and hopefully a full ten libbies means that maybe the slimdown is starting to be semi-noticeable?

It’s so hard for me to tell, not only because I’m, y’know, me, and thus I see myself every day and so subtle changes are difficult to see, but also because of my frame, even when I’m not at my current weight, losing or gaining five pounds doesn’t really mean much to the naked eye.

But whether it’s wishful thinking or actual fact, I do think that some of my clothing is starting to fit a little nicer again, and I feel like my stomach might just be a millimeter or two flatter. Onward, downward, and whatnot, right? Here’s hoping that I continue to do really well this week, because I’m off to San Francisco next weekend to spend an entire week with my Yelpy coworkers in one of the foodiest cities in the country! Urrrrk!


  1. Way to Gretchen! I think I can tell in your face 🙂 Keep up the hard work it is working!!!

  2. Congrats on your first raw oysters! I have to say they are much better cooked to me…we actually shucked and broiled some at home this weekend. Delish! And congrats on your continued weight loss!

  3. I love that feeling of when my clothes are feeling better, and you can look in the mirror and think “I look goooodd” haha. Much better than the number on the scale. congrats on another great week!
