Rethink Your Shrink - Week 3 Weigh-In

I pretty much chronicled the past week in yesterday's post, so here are the numbers:

 Last week weight - 210.8
This week weight -210.8
-0.0 lbs
Overall Drop - 1.6 lbs

So glad I maintained....  Especially since I was up by 2lbs yesterday morning.

Although it may have been late in the week to make my huge exercise breakthrough, I am SOOO glad that my motivation has changed.  

I still cannot believe that I signed up to do a HALF MARATHON!!!

My challenge and opportunity for the coming week is to get my eating plan figured out.  I have really struggled to do it all on my own.  I am actually considering Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig, so that the food is already prepped for me.  Anyone have preferences?  I am thinking it will be just a way to jumpstart me and that within a couple of months I will be able to take over on my own.  What have you had the most success with?


  1. That is great news....maintaining can be a good thing! And even better that you feel such awesome motivation to keep making good choices!

    I've never done a prepackaged plan before, but just started WW, so I will be tracking more religiously...and seeing it on paper makes a huge difference.

    Good luck this week!

  2. there are much worse things in life than maintenace! :)

    as for the meal plan - i've never done either so i can't help you there. i'm just a calorie counter.

  3. Nothing wrong with maintaining.

    For the meal plan, I've never done that so I cannot help. Sorry. Hope someone can answer the question about Jenny Craig vs Nutrisystem. Good luck this week.

  4. I've used WW in the past with huge success. Now, since I kind of know how WW works, I just do it on my own. I also find that food journaling (writing down EVERY single thing I eat) eliminates some of the mindless snacking.

    I am so proud of you for signing up for the 1/2 marathon!

  5. yay for the 1/2 marathon!!! you can so totally do it!!!

    meal plans, i've done WW, which was FANTASTIC! it totally helped me break through a plateau I was in. I started out doing Body For Life, which has you eating 5-6 times a day, protein and carb in even proportions (2 or 3 of them can be the Myoplex protein shake). I lost 16 pounds on that and it was pretty easy (there was a "free day" built into the plan too which was key for me.)
    sparkpeople.com was also good, counting calories. but because i was exercising so much, i never did figure out exactly how many calories i should be eating. i loved weight watchers because it figured that part out for you and also, there were no foods i needed to cut out, i just needed to make sure i didn't go over in my points. darn it, this makes me wanna join again because i'm getting a little stuck between plans myself! good luck, great job on maintaining!!
