Weigh-In Week 128: Post-Feasting Loss!

Okay, okay, okay. It’s only 0.4 of a pound, but hey I was DOWN after a night of gluttony and delicious, delicious food! New weight is an even 161lbs and a total loss of 90.6lbs. So not in the 150s yet, but I’m pleased with 3 straight losses in a row.

I’m starting to feel a bit better about this weight loss journey. Now, I’ve always had an easier time of it in the autumnal months so I’m hoping this is the beginning of a downward trend. Heck, I’d be overjoyed if I was only losing. 0.4lbs per week for the rest of the year. It would still put me ahead. But in all seriousness I am feeling good about things food related right now. I’m hoping I can get past this stumbling block so I can get to goal. I have never been in a healthy weight range for my height in my adult life, and really probably not since I was under 10 years of age. It would mean a lot to me to finally pass this threshold (which for me is at 145lbs). Perhaps that’s why I’ve been stuck here? I know it’s all psychological, I know I have to wait it out. Fake it till you make it right? Well for me it’s maintaining, I KNOW I’ll get past this hump. Soon.

At Thanksgiving dinner this weekend I was chatting with a friend of mine who did WW with me (she’s reached goal and lifetime already, yippee!!) and we were talking about this year-long blip I’ve been in. I told her that I am both frustrated and grateful for it.  And I have to say, that yes, I was telling the truth. I am grateful for the time I’ve had so far to get used to my new body. It no longer feels as foreign, which is nice. A year ago I remember having panic attacks when it came to my body. Two of note include freaking out while learning to trapeze with my friends where I wouldn’t grab the trapeze and swing the first time around because I realized I didn’t trust my arms to hold my weight, the second was at a photo shoot where I ended up crying the bathroom because I looked at the table of clothes and realized I didn’t have any sense of what fit me anymore. They were awful feelings that filled me with a sense of being a stranger in my own body. Nowadays I have a good sense of how much space my body takes up in the world, what it’s capable of, and what clothes fit me. It feels good. BUT. I have to say I’m done getting used to it. Let’s move on! Let’s get to goal body, Let’s do it!

In the meantime, while I try to figure this all out, check out these photos of our delicious Thanksgiving meal:

 

I’ll post my pumpkin-making recipe/play-by-play shortly.

Also – WHOA!! Montreal just had an earthquake while I was writing this. Apparently a magnitude of 4.5. Although we are on near a faultline we are SO not used to this. It was kinda scary because my whole building shook (and we’re not known for our modern architecture!) Crazy. Twitter is all ablaze.

  1. Great job this week! I was down 0.8 and was bummed for a second, then I realized I had lost weight over Thanksgiving! We don’t really feel Earthquakes here near Toronto, but it always makes me nervous hearing about ones not far from here!

    • Yes, I say any STS or loss over the holidays is a success! No, it wasn’t that big of an earthquake – also Montreal is near a fault line which I don’t think Toronto is. We get one every few years, but we forget easily so they’re always a shock!
