Weight Loss

Weigh-in Week 118: Two Year Blogiversary!

Happy Blogiversary to me! Exactly two years ago on July 31st, 2010, I started this blog. You can read my very first post right HERE!  My how far I’ve come. I started my blog when I was struggling and I had lost 6.8lbs in 13 weeks. (Gee, I guess struggling with weight loss is my normal).  My first post talks about my very real fear that I could easily reach 300 or 400 pounds before I knew it. I knew it had been time to take control and so I did.

(I have no source for this as I googled it and it came up in a number of blogs, so I guess the source will be Google.com)

So where am I today? Well I was down 1.8lbs for a new weight of 158.2lbs with a total loss of 93.4lbs. I’m back in the 150s! (third time’s the charm right?) and I’m hoping to stay here. I was not expecting a loss AT ALL. In fact, I was hoping for a stay-the-same. Truly. This week was not great. One day I snacked all day on Honey Nut Cheerios (a friend brought them in and I couldn’t resist!) Another day I splurged on ice cream – something about NYC makes me crave delicious, delicious ice cream – had a scone at a tea shop, more ice cream – this time vegan ice cream with a long lost friend, and then to top it all off, a creamy coconut cupcake from Magnolia Bakery.

Look! I couldn’t even take a picture before I took a bit! Clearly I have a coconut addiction 😉 But I already knew that.  I think what this week tells me is that my guesstimating of points in general is probably right. I did eat all this, but still ate healthfully other times and stayed within my points so all is well (so far, let’s hope it doesn’t show up next week). I don’t plan on doing this every week, but once in a while is okay I think.

Delicious! I’m normally a chocolate kinda girl, but coconut makes it all better. I will almost always choose coconut.

Now, I did say it was my 2nd blogiversary – last year I did a giveaway with my favourite cookie cookbook. Well this year will be no different – check back later this week for my next giveaway announcement to celebrate! 🙂 Yay me! I’m proud of my persistence and endurance. I’m happy to still be here, chugging away at this. I’m hoping this means it’ll all stick.

Here’s to another 2 years!

  1. Congrats on 2 years, awesome dedication and amazing results!

    Know what? Right now, you and I are about the same weight. And we have a similar goal. I’ve *finally* taken back up with my healthy eating and running… have gone gluten and dairy free (I’ve long known I needed to) and have even signed up for my first 5K in September. Here’s to both of us!!!!!

    1. Thank you so much! Congrats on the first 5K!! It’ll be great – let me know how you do. Are you still blogging? I seem to have lost your blog address.

      Here’s to both us indeed!! 🙂

      1. Argh, no the blog fell under the massive weight of everything else. But my hubby is headed out to Saskatoon for work for 2 months in only 2 weeks, so I’ll be picking back up to ensure he’s up to date on our lives… http://rainydaychocolate.blogspot.ca/ Thanks for asking!
        I’m excited about the 5K and have been loosely following the C25K training method. I might make it all the way through in time for the race!

    1. Thank you! It certainly hasn’t been easy, but here I go day by day. How are you? Are you back on program/back with motivation? I know your last post was about missing that motivation. Let me know how you’re doing 🙂
