Monthly Weigh-In


This morning I did my monthly weigh-in and measurements.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I stepped on the scale. It’s a about a week before I’d normally weigh-in but the timing for this month fell that way.

I thought for sure I’d be down quite a bit since last month’s weight in. Michael and I had been biking an insane amount in preparation for Reach the Beach. Every weekend for over a month we biked. Saturdays were our long bike ride days.

But I also didn’t factor in that because of all the intense training and the Reach the Beach ride, I was also eating a lot more to fuel my body.

The result? I did not lose inches this month. I think I lost about 1/2 an inch around my waist but everything else measured the same as last month.

I did, however, lose 2.6 pounds! A loss is a loss. I don’t mind that it wasn’t a massive loss this month. I felt great during Reach the Beach, I recovered amazingly fast, and my running has become faster! Those are all Non-Scale Victories that I can celebrate!

Monthly Weigh-In: 151.2 pounds

Since I stopped taking those pills in March, I’ve lost a total of 8.3 pounds. And not only that, I had to buy a new pair of jeans on Sunday. I’m down from a size 6 to a size 4! I’ll take it!

  1. Way to go. A size 4 is tiny! I have found that when I am training, I gain weight too. I think maybe your measurements didn’t go down, because your muscles got bigger? Great job either way. 2.6lbs is a loss!!

  2. Wow, Congrats! A size down to 4 and a loss is great! You’ve totally earned it!

  3. Congrats on the weigh-in, the SIZE 4s, and the NSVs! 🙂 I’m starting to learn that the NSVs are much more important than what the scale says! 🙂

  4. Your story continues to amaze me! Size 4 is tiny! What an inspiration. If you can lose 150 lbs. I can surely lose 10 🙂 Way to go girl!!

    • Thanks! It wasn’t 150 but if I reached my goal, I will have lost 120. But like I said, I don’t know low I can really go. And the other benefits (like running and biking) are more important to me now than the scale.

  5. nice job! I love how you find positives no matter what!

  6. Wow – what a fantastic result 🙂 And just think of how much fitter and stonger you have become with all that training!!!

  7. That’s awesome! Wow, I’m hoping I can get to single digit jeans by the end of the year. That would be amazing 🙂

    Keep it up!

  8. Umm, you look fabulous. Size 4!? Damn!

  9. wow that is awesome! I just found your blog, but your story is incredible!

  10. Congratulations on your weight loss! I’m definitely going to read back through your blog for inspiration.

    I love your pics – you are so pretty 🙂

  11. Don’t sweat it! I started my journey 10 weeks ago and I’ve only lost 8lbs. Basically I have 2 goals. 1. Finish a sprint triathlon. 2. Lose weight. After goal 1 is done I’ll focus on goal 2. It’s actually hard to lose weight when doing endurance sports training. I’ve notice a big difference when I swim and lift weights……

  12. Nice work! You have done so much this month, you have so much to be proud of. And a weight loss is just icing on the cake!
