Re-Think Your Shrink: Week 4 Weigh-In

I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in the scale this week. I did have a loss, but a very small one. I'm down .4 to 157.4. This is a loss of 3.8 lbs for the challenge and 8.4 overall. I really thought I'd be into the 156's this week, but I guess my body just wants to take things really, really slow. Sucks for me since I am so NOT into delayed gratification and have no patience whatsoever. ARRGGG!

I have been tracking my food consistently and avoiding late-night snacking. I'm also getting in lots and lots of water. Aside from the brownies debauchery this weekend (damn husband!), I'm doing really well in the calories dept. I'm also exercising every day, but maybe I'm not working out enough or with enough intensity. I've completed the EA Active 30 day challenge and just started on the EA More Workouts 6 week challenge, but some days it doesn't seem like enough of a calorie burn. On the other hand, some days my net calories are under 1000 (after exercise), so maybe I need to eat a little more. Who knows. I've also felt really run down the past few days, so I might be coming down with something. I know, excuses, excuses....

An update on my son's sports/fitness dilemma: he signed up for the middle school swim team and has had 2 practices so far this week. As of right now, he is really liking it. No meets yet, but he has some other friends on the team and seems to be having fun. Whatever works, I guess :)

I hope you all had a shrintastic week. Thanks for being there.


  1. you definitely don't wanna net under 1000 consistantly. sometimes it can't be helped - like on a hike or a long run day. but you definitely don't want to be consistantly that low.

    this week we just need to take our zero point something or other losses and smile! :)

  2. Every little bit helps doesn't it. I am glad your son is liking Swimming so far. That is great.

  3. You moved the scale in the right direction and that counts! Be careful not to consume too FEW calories. Your body will start fighting you.

  4. I totally agree with Heather, but you are doing great Bari!! Have a great week!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!
