The dreaded weekly weigh-in: week 11

Starting weight – 229.6 lbs
Last week – 211.6 lbs
This week – 209.2 lbs

Total weight lost – 20.4 lbs

Go, fat girl, it’s your birthday! I’m happy to reach the 20-pound mark, but kind of sad that a lot of my recent weight loss is probably muscle loss while I’m on hiatus from the gym/boot camp/Zumba. Le sigh.

On the plus side, I’ve taken on some new freelance clients, who are definitely keepin’ me busy. This week, I worked over 30 hours for one client alone (hence the lack of blog posts). Let’s just say that coffee has been a staple in my diet for the past few days.

Also exciting (to me, anyway): My boyfriend bought the juicer! I can’t wait to make me some veggie juice.

Here’s to keeping my sanity during this busy time! Cheers!

  1. Dear Andrea,

    Please start giving yourself more credit for eating healthy and stop being so hard on yourself!

    You aren’t going to lose 2lbs of muscle in a week… just like you aren’t going to gain 2lbs of muscle in a week (I wish!). What you do lose, if you lost any, you’ll gain back quickly; there’s this wonderful thing called muscle memory!!! Your muscles know how big they used to be, and they regain mass more quickly the second/third/fourth time around (with proper diet and training of obvs!).

    Stop calling yourself fat, start thinking more positively, and keep eating clean!

    Molto amore bella!

  2. I know, I need to give myself some credit! I hate that I’m so hard on myself. I can’t wait to get back into an exercise routine so I can rebuild my guns (I can’t believe I just said that)! Thank you for the encouraging words — I needed them today (well, and most days)!

  3. You really have made a lifestyle change. The fact that you still lost weight even though you’ve been super busy shows that you are in the habit of making good food choices. Congrats!
