YBL 2014 Final Weigh-In

Well, my complete and total lack of posting this week is indicative of the fact that I very nearly went totally insane from how busy I’ve been. I leave for San Francisco on Sunday for CM Week — the annual Community Manager summit over at Yelp HQ. And while I couldn’t be more excited to get to spend an entire week with some of my Yelpy cohorts who I thus far have only known online (and most of you should know how much I love turning online friends into real life friends by now!) getting things tied up in a semi-respectable bow before I leave has been a little bit stressful.

However, not so stressful that I was unable to remember to tally up for my final Yelp’s Biggest Loser weigh-in! That particular challenge ends today (though obviously I still have many personal challenges and goals still to come!), so let’s get on that, shall we?

(Re)Starting Weight: 236.6 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 226.2
This Weigh-in: 225.1 lbs
Difference: -1.1 lbs

Heyyyyy, I’ll take it! I’m the first one to admit that my eats this week were NOT exactly on point (there may have been an evening spent at Red Lobster somewhere in there…) so I’m actually kind of shocked I was able to lose anything at all. I consider that a definite win.

So this brings my YBL Challenge totals to 11.5 pounds lost and a 4.9% change. Which almost definitely means I didn’t win any kind of prize as the grand poobah of weight loss (we have a guy who’s lost like 9%!) but I still consider it a valient effort that I’m certainly proud of. After all, hey! I’m 11.4 pounds lighter than I was when I started.

And now? Well, you know! Onward and downward and all that good stuff… after a probable bit of relapse given that I’m headed to San Francisco, the land of the Sushiritto.


  1. Good job, Gretchen! Keep it up!

  2. I, too, am trying to find balance between travel and a healthier lifestyle. In the next two months, I’m traveling across the country several times to help shoot weddings and attend conferences (San Francisco, San Diego, Charlotte, West Virginia…) to events that seem to be bent on ruining my battle against delicious things.

    Solidarity. Stay strong, sister.

  3. Sushiritto is not all it is stacked up to be. Just sayin… 🙂

    That being said, the Yelp office is awesome and so is Super Duper burger.

  4. Keep at it Gretchen. You’ve got the will power! My mantra to staying fit is “almonds, protein, coffee and tea”. Learning to drink black coffee and herbal tea replaced store bought juice and alcohol for me. Especially at parties, I just become super hyper and the DD. =D
