Weight Loss Wednesday: Week 3

weight loss, weightloss


I still haven’t stepped on a scale since I started these weight loss Wednesday posts.  I’m afraid that I won’t show progress.  I’m afraid of how heavy I truly am.  I’m afraid of setting unrealistic goals for myself.  I know that I need to so I know my starting point.  But I’m not sure if I will share that number with anyone other than myself, my journal and maybe J.  Maybe.

I know it’s just a number and I should be brave enough to share it with others.  I just don’t know if I’m confident in myself yet.  Who knows, maybe by next week I will be ready to share with numbers.  For now… I’m not there.

I set a goal last week to meal prep at least 4 meals.  I am excited to share that I succeeded with that goal.  I found this neat meal planner guide on Pinterest, printed it out and listed out every meal that I know is clean and easy to cook.  I included breakfast, lunch, dinner and sides.  I prepped for Monday through Friday.  It was great!  Now, I just need to keep it up.

I also set a goal to not over eat over Thanksgiving.  I struggled with it, but I think overall I did fairly good.  I could have done better, but in all honesty – I could have done a lot worse.  And normally, I would have done worse.  What really helped me not be a total waste this past weekend was the lightened-up apple pie I took to dinner.  It was a huge hit, which was awesome because I was afraid I’d be the only one who would like it and that would mean more temptation for me.

This next week my goals are:

1) continue planning for at least 4 clean meals
2) return to Crossfit at least 3x a week
3) write in my journal any time I feel like I’m struggling.

My sister’s wedding is less than 2 weeks away.  I tried on my dress this morning to make sure it was still a go… and it is.  The dress fits nicely and all I need now are the finishing touches.  I can’t wait to see her walk down the aisle.  I’m taking bets to see how much she cries! HAHA It’s going to be beautiful!  I’d like to stay on track this week and next week to make sure I’m ready.

What are your goals this week for a healthier you?  Share with me, I’d love to know so we can help each other.

One Thought on “Weight Loss Wednesday: Week 3

  1. Merdy, unfortunately we (you and I) will always struggle with our weight. I’m a foodie and have come to terms that I will always have to work at it. You are a beautiful person inside and out! You also have an amazing husband that loves you for you. Always remember that.

    I’ve gained weight since my wedding, a month ago. My goal is to journal everyday and go to the gym at least 3 times a week. Need to get my routine back.

    If you ever want to talk through any of this or need a buddy to stay accountable, I’m here!

    Love ya,
