The dreaded weekly weigh-in: week eight

Starting weight – 229.6 lbs
Last week – 215.6 lbs
This week – 213.6 lbs

Total weight lost – 16 lbs

I should really rename these posts from the “The dreaded weekly weigh-in” to “Hell yeah, I am kicking some major weight-loss ass!”

I used to dread stepping on the scale every Monday, not knowing which number would show itself. But I’ve seen a steady decline every week, motivating me more and more, despite the occasional “OHGODINEEDACUPCAKE!” near-diet-breaking thought.

I do want to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year, and I’m on track to do that (barring any major plateaus, knock on wood). I’m not focusing solely on that number, though — I’m looking at how my clothes fit (if anyone has a spare belt, holla at me) and how healthy and strong I feel. Based on that criteria alone, I’ve hit the home run.

Happy Monday, everyone!
