Dang it! I will taking the 5-minute walk from my office to the Kmart and buying a freaking tape measure at some point today!

I mean - woo hoo BamaGal! This is such a mental thing, and seeing progress really does help to keep us on track.

220.4 lbs! Saw 219.8 lbs again, but saw 220.4 lbs 2/3 times I weighed.

Welcome, Faded! Here's to hoping that you see the scale read 22x soon!

Yay, Bama! As I always say, having that tape measure to show progress even when the scale doesn't is such a great motivator for continuing to push through when times get tough.

Laurie, I don't think I can really say I'm through yet. I'm getting there, but I'm not quite there yet. I'm less bothered when the variation is a matter of tens of a pound than when it's bouncing up and down by 2+ lbs each time I step on it.

Doooo iiiit. Take the walk and get the tape measure. If you decide you're being too obsessive, you can always get rid of it and, honestly, I don't think it'll do too much harm.

The tape measure has been secured! Now, to figure out how to appropriately use it. Gonna be a slippery slope, I'm afraid.

Also, I went for a run on the treadmill. 1.05 miles, with about 0.7 at a 4.8 mph pace, with the rest of it bouncing back and forth to a slower pace -- I think clear down to 4.2 actually, but still running. =) Then, I did walking/running intervals until I hit 2 miles, including 30 seconds at 7.3 mph. I hit 2 miles at exactly 28 minutes. My knee is not happy with me right now, but I feel great about it!

I'm so jealous of how fast you move. XD Do you run/walk with an incline or strictly flat?

Also, way to go on getting a tape measure! It's pretty easy to master. Waist at your belly button. And you can track your problem areas or anything else you want to track, too... Maybe I should add my wrist into my tracked measurements. Hm... Anyway, here are the ones I do currently track:

Quote:
Neck: 13.5
Chest: 47
Under bust: 37
Biceps: 15
Forearms: 10.5
Muffin top: 43
Waist: 39
Hips: 51.5
Thighs: 26.5
Calf: 17

Jen - Woot on the first week. It's super hard. And planks SUCK.

Jessica - I wish I had measured yesterday, cuz the scale went up today. I am going to do the ones you suggest. It will be good for me. Thanks for the instruction.

220.8. I want to analyze everything I did and ate yesterday, but I refuse. I just need to dedicate myself today to keeping on and not letting the slight gain mess with my head. Cuz it can.

New scale = new start. Yay for getting it! But remember - all scales weigh slightly differently, so you can't compare your weight on this one to your weight on the other one.

Jen, congrats on your first week of C25K. Also I LOVE planks. Love them even though I do believe they're the devil. Don't stress about the scale. Like Laurie said, each scale is different and that's okay. At least it's not higher, you know? Yet another reason I love to tape; each scale is different but a tape measure is a tape measure is a tape measure.

Laurie, you're so welcome. I think having a tangible way of tracking progress that is not subjective nor as easily influenced by water weight, time of day, etc etc will be a huge boon for you. It will go a long way in continuing to help you with the desire to over-analyze any little blip on the scale. Additionally, being up 0.2 lbs since yesterday is okay. I saw 220.6 lbs today, up .2 from my 220.4 lbs yesterday so you're in good company.

Y'all, I'm STRUGGLING these past couple of days. I don't know what triggered it but I'm just RAVENOUS-- all I can think about it food, food, food. I haven't binged and I'm really fighting the urge to do so. I thought maybe a little treat would help so last night I did eat a package of peanut butter cups (2)-- always my candy of choice-- but the chocolate have me HORRIBLE reflex which I'm still feeling today. NOT worth it and it didn't help with my cravings. And today, even while I'm enjoying my food and being careful and could clearly feel I was full, I was just wanting to shovel all of my lunch into mouth. I didn't, but even as I was putting the leftovers away I was half thinking about just bingeing on it. I didn't *need* it but I felt like I did! Ugh.

Just struggling. Not ruining myself, but just not feeling that awesome contentment I had all week. Any ideas?

Bama I am doing carb cycling by Chris Powell and you actually get one cheat meal a week which can include candy....I think this has really helped me be able to stick to something....it really teaches you how to eat right, in what portions, and letting yourself have a reward every once in awhile....research it....

You can do this though stay strong!

Hello everyone! I'm new here. I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow, but I know I'm somewhere in the 220s or higher. How do I "subscribe" to this thread so I can find it later?
