Friday Weigh in! Oh, Glorious!

Starting weight 372 lbs. on 12/5/11 I'm in week 18
last weeks weight 316.0
This weeks weight 313.6
Loss of 2.4 lbs for the week Total loss of 58.4!


Well, I'll be damned! I guess changing my calorie intake does make a difference! I was just eating 1000 calories a day for the past 16 weeks and my loss slowed down, bump up the calories to 1200-1400 and you lose weight. How weird is that? I really sucked at science when I was in school, and this really had me baffled. Common sense would tell me that the less you eat, the more you lose. Not soooo says the dietitian and the PA at the doctors office.  So now that my body is not hanging on to the weight I need to burn more. The really weird part for me is the other day when I was feeling down in the dumps I got into that darn Easter candy and wolfed down a handful of Robin Eggs. I love Whoppers candy so a piece of candy that just has a candy coating is awesome! I ate them before checking on how many calories are in them. I had about 12 of those little suckers. I then went on myfitnesspal and plugged in Robin Eggs  in the search........it popped up 4 equals 200 calories! I about shit a brick sideways! I had consumed 600 calories! I was sooo pissed at myself for being so freaking weak. Then yesterday I was in the grocery store and walked past the discounted Easter candy. There sat a couple of bags of those damn Robin Eggs. I picked it up and turned it over and the label read 8 pieces equals 180 calories. I would of thought that I would of been relieved, I was a little instead of 600 calories I ended up consuming 270 instead. Still, I thought about was that candy really worth that amount of calories? It comes back to does that candy taste as good as losing weight makes me feel?  Heck NO! I did a little dance getting off the scale this morning. I'm getting so close to kicking the 300's in the butt FOREVER! THAT is what makes me feel good. Now the question is .............How do you always remember that before you stick crap in your mouth?
Have an awesome weekend everyone!  Oh, and WAY TO GO Miss Lorie over at I just ate my willpower for losing 101 pounds!  You are awesome! All you girls are!

  1. It compeltely makes sense. I also don't understand the science of it, but when I was just after the 50 pound mark I had to up my calories a little (I may have done that with candy to some degree:) but, it seemed to me that my body just kinda stopped losing because I was moving so much and eating so little. Just do what the professionals are suggesting... to some degree:)
    Thanks for the shout out! You are so close to the 2's it is RiDicuLous!
    Oh- and I don't always remember that. You know I never remember feeling guilty about what I was eating before the band. I could stuff my face for days and weeks at a time and NO GUILT. I think I've come to realize that I just didn't care anymore. Thats all changed.

    Now that i've written a novel, good luck with Prom flowers,
    Lorie
