CDCC update Week 6

I really hate the up and down weight fluctuations between Wednesday and Sunday.  The two different weigh ins keep me accountable, but they do kind of hurt when I am lower one day than the other.  As is the case again today.

Wednesday I was 228 for Shrinkvivor and today I am 228.8.  However, last Sunday I was 229.2 so it's still a loss of .4 pounds since last Sunday's CDCC weigh in.

I have been doing good with my exercise.  I've even done two 5k's this week.  One was for the Run the Hood Virtual 5K & 10K on Saturday and I did another just by walking my kids to the park and back.  I also ran for 2 miles straight and did 30 minutes of an exercise video.

My food once again has been okay, but there is room for improvement.  My water intake is okay during the week, but lacking on the weekend.  It's so much easier to have my water at my desk at work, but on the weekends I can't just leave it where ever I am sitting because my kids are 1 and 3 and not so great with things just sitting around.  I'm trying though.

I've almost caught up with my challenge book, but a feel so so about it. It just reiterates the same idea with different words.  Some of it is useful, but I find it a little boring.  Luckily it is a daily read book so it's easy to read.

I don't know how the rest of you did this week, but I know there were quite a few struggles the week before. We lost a couple challengers and there were many who gained weight.  I hope this week was better for everyone and if it wasn't please keep pushing on.  Don't let the gains get to you. Keep striving for your goal.  Remember why you want to lose the weight in the first place.  Who or what is your motivation.  Put a picture up on your fridge if you need to.  Just don't give up!


  1. I know what you mean about the ups and downs. BUT, what I do like, is that it tells me what I really need to watch. It usually takes my body about 36 hrs to show a gain from something I ate that was wrong. So I really do think I benefit from the more weigh ins.

  2. Good post. I like the motivation and words for other challengers are good, thanks.

  3. It's hard when the scale won't move but you know you've done right but I won't be giving up any time soon. You keep up the great work. Take care and God Bless!!

  4. Aww, fluctuations are rough but you can still see that you're definitely moving in the right direction. Two 5ks are awesome! Let's have a fantastic week. :)

  5. even though there was a little elevator action going on you still lost some and thats the great thing. you will do better and great job with the 5k..:)

  6. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming....

    Yep. Just keep going, and you'll eventually get there.
