Ms. Marvel Project

Week 1

I’m doing an official weigh-in every Saturday as soon as I get out of bed. Today’s results weren’t amazing, but I think I know why:

Today’s weight: 144.4

Starting weight: 144.4

So according to the scale, I’m exactly the same as I was last week at this time. However, I have been on track all week and done tons of workouts. I believe my mistake was that yesterday I had a lot of very salty foods, and I started to bloat. I’m going to weigh myself tomorrow to see if there’s been any difference, but even if there isn’t, I’m just going to continue on. I know from my previous attempts to lose weight that it takes a WHILE for my body to actually respond. In fact, I usually only see weight loss one week a month, at a certain time.

In other news, I picked up my new car today and got to drive it around a little. It’s awesome! And the sound system in the car sounds incredible so I can just see myself making up excuses to drive just to listen to music.

Starting Points

As promised yesterday, I officially weighed in for the first time.

Starting weight on 10/8/11: 144.4

Goal weight by 1/1/12: 130

I have close to 15 pounds to lose, and I’d ideally like to reach this first goal by the new year. My ideal body weight for my height is somewhere around 126, so once January comes around, I’ll reassess where I am and how I’m going to move forward. But for now, 130 would be amazing. I haven’t been that low since high school. When I lost weight last year, the lowest I was able to get was 133.2 and I felt great at that weight.

I’m still fighting this cold, and I’m hoping it’s on its last legs at this point. Monday is the kick off of this project, no matter what.
