Okay people – I’m keeping up with my Wednesday Weigh-In schedule for “HONHIC” (Healthy Or Not Here I Come) – and if you are wondering what all this is about then check it out HERE! If you just want a quick rundown of the post from two weeks ago for comparison sake then check it out HERE!
OOPS! I did it again – I played with your heart …. um oops sorry, nevermind – I actually did it again by not stopping last week-long enough to give you my HONHIC update. While I DID miss writing about it I did NOT miss doing my weigh-in. The problem was that last week was pretty hectic as I was a part of a pretty cool basketball camp for some young ladies over in Plymouth, NC. So last Wednesday I got up early enough to do my weigh-in but not early enough to jump online and write about it. I was gone all day long and then had the same routing going on Thursday.
By the time I got to the weekend I headed off for an awesome “college age & young adult” retreat up in Virginia and did not get home till Sunday afternoon only to find myself busy with other things I had to catch up on from being gone. Next thing I know it is now almost Wednesday again, so I just decided to get a 2-for-1 special. I’ve had times in the past where I had to skip a week from posting, but this might be the first time I’ve ever actually had the weigh-in total but just not stopped long enough to give the results.
But all that has changed – so now that you all have waited so patiently – finally you get your 2-for-1 WEDNESDAY WEIGH-IN SPECIAL…..
As of Wednesday, June 8th 2011 my weight is: 224.5 lbs.
As of Wednesday, June 15th 2011 my weight is: 223.5 lbs.
Okay, Okay – yeah I hear you – this was sort of a let down – the old digital scale numbers were moving all over the place. After doing some serious celebration back on June 1st – I unfortunately jumped back up 2 pounds on the 8th, hovering back up around my old goal of 225. Needless to say I wasn’t happy about that one, but then I got back on track a little bit better this past week, and was even able to get in a couple solid hours of volleyball last night. All of this helped to bring me back down a whole pound, but still keeps me at a pound higher than what I was on June 1st. Definitely leaving me with mixed emotions.
As I come into the final week of my year-long journey I really want to work hard at getting closer to the 220 mark or below – which is becoming my new goal. I want to be in the 215-220 range to sort of “hangout” for the years to come. This has been a crazy battle and at times while I am slightly frustrated that in just about an entire year all I really came down has been a little over 10 pounds from the original 235 mark. I am VERY MUCH ECSTATIC that I have fallen from the 250 mark where I had been at one point in my time in the Atlanta area and I think all in all I am a bit healthier. Being healthier and solid weight loss was the goal, so I am happy with those results.
So don’t forget to TUNE IN NEXT WEEK to catch the final episode of HONHIC (okay maybe not the “FINAL” as I will probably keep posting a random update every few months as a reminder that even though this was a year-long journey – it was ONLY the beginning to some serious life change).
So here I go with 1 of a final couple times of hollering, “HEALTHY OR NOT, HERE I COME”!
