Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

The Healthy life: the ups and downs of weigh ins

Last night I was exhausted, so exhausted that after dinner I fell asleep until 8:40.... not a stellar choice on my part.

What I am trying to get at was I didn't work out last night (boooo, hiss). But I just counted up my calories for the day and didn't even break 1000... which, to tell you the truth I didn't even mean to do.

I know that I shouldn't weigh at night but I woke up around 11:30 and was curious. So, I go downstairs and get the wii fit set up and step on. It says that I have gained 2 lbs...WHAT!?!?!?! this can't be right, so I step off, and do it again.... it says I have now gained 4lbs. At this point even the wii fit says this is weird, it is late and to do another body test tomorrow at 6:15pm which is when I did my first initial body test. In that split second, where I saw that number say +2 I was already at my fridge eating cookie dough.... but I pulled it back in and said try again tomorrow. It is amazing how happy I was about the 1.3lbs and how gaining 2lbs can bring my world crashing down in a blaze of over eating.

This is where I have had a lot of trouble. When I am loosing weight nothing can stop me (but me) but if there is even the slightest flux in my weight I think "well, this isn't working, I guess I was meant to be fat." and then push myself to the brink of a food induced comma.

This time, yes I still got upset. But! I stopped myself, slapped myself out of it and actually looked at the situation. Heck, even my wii fit was telling me something was off and to try again tomorrow. This may not be a weight loss victory, but it was a victory none the less. I know that doing this for 46 weeks is a HUGE undertaking and I am going to feel overwhelmed, depresed, and just plain sad, but if I keep having these little (big) victories then I KNOW I can do this.

Tonight is back on track... Have a great Tuesday everyone!


  1. You can do it!!! I believe in you. The Wii Fit believes in you. The cookie dough (while not really supporting you) believes in you too. my suggestions: #1 only weigh-in once a week. #b take your body measurements - trust me, b helps A TON.

  2. oh thats a god idea. do measutments as well as weight. cause you know that muscle weighs more than fat right?

    P.S. dumb wii fit board. lol.

  3. I have a present for you!:) See you soon.
