Weigh In 1/24/11

Ok, so week 3 weigh in. After a 4.6 lb gain last week I'm pretty desperate to see things move in the correct direction. My results are:

January 17 2011
Weight: 168.6 lbs (-2.4)
Body Fat: 35% (0)
Bust: 38.5" (0)
Waist: 31" (-.75)
Hips: 41.5" (-1.25)
Bicep: 12" (0)
Thigh: 24" (+.25)
Calf: 15.5" (0)

Well firstly, a sigh of relief that things are moving in the right direction again. I am a bit disappointed that I only lost 2.4, I sort of expected to lose all 5 lbs again. But, it is important for me to celebrate a victory and that victory is that I was able to recover from a bad week. 2.4 lbs is nothing to scoff at. It is definitely a good number. Again I'm confused by the gain in my thigh, but that could just be a measuring issue.

Picture, again inconclusive perhaps a little less tummy on my profile? Boy would it be nice to see a difference - maybe next week.

I survived the week after a gain, and was even able to sneak in a birthday celebration for my sister (including cake *shhhhhh*). I am excited for next week, maybe I can take care of those last 2.5 and get back to where I was 2 weeks ago.


  1. Congrats on the loss Ellie - slow and steady wins the race! Cheers, Rick

  2. A loss is a loss is a loss. Right?

    Great work!

    And I can't wait to weigh what you weigh now. You have a "bikini body"! I am jealous!!!!

  3. Awesome loss!! It all adds up!! Keep up the great work!!

  4. It's a great loss. 2.4lbs is well worth celebrating!!

  5. Congrats! I think you are so brave to post this - it'll help you to stay accountable! Keep it up!

  6. That is a great loss Ellie! Congrats! Here's to a great week!

    You are right about not craving certain foods. When I don't eat sugar, I don't NEED sugar :) Hope the low carbing works for you.

  7. I agree with everyone else. You are back on track and that is what matters most!

  8. You know, since I've been doing strength training I've noticed an increase in my thighs as well. Are you doing anything special like squats or lunges? Maybe that could be the reason.
    I also agree with what everyone else said - you are doing great and are moving in the right direction!
