See Mommy Lose Weight — Week 3

This is a photo of last week's weigh in. Why? Because I weighed EXACTLY the same today as I did last Wednesday. Ugh. The culprits:

°    Brownies — with extra chocolate chips added. I had to go to a meeting Monday night, so I made some brownies to take along. The mistake? Making them Sunday afternoon, and then continuing to sneak past them and "even them up." (We wouldn't want messy brownie edges, now, would we?)

°    Work. I spent too many hours with my butt in the chair in front of this computer last week, and not enough hours walking the dog and hitting the treadmill. (I'm a bit of a politics/CNN junkie, especially lately, so watching CNN would have been a pain-free way to do a 30-minute treadmill session. But nooo!)

°    Twitter. Oh, boy, this social-networking tool can be used for good or evil (i.e., more butt-in-the-chair time). I'm afraid I'm hooked after just three weeks. Already I've met new writing and editing colleagues, learned about great websites, gathered article ideas and a lot more. You can also spend waaay too much time on Twitter having fun and reading everyone's thoughts on everything from the presidential campaign to back-to-school challenges to where to get the best pad Thai in San Francisco. (You can follow me on Twitter here.)

So here's the rundown so far on my Wednesday weigh-ins:

Week 1: 138.6
Week 2: 137.2 (total loss: 1.4 lbs)
Week 3: 137.2 (total loss: 1.4 lbs)

I'm already working toward next week's weigh-in. No brownies this week! I'm snacking, right now, on apple slices dipped in a bit of natural peanut butter, and drinking lots of water. And I'll be out walking Charlie the Wonder Dog later today, I promise.

How about you? What do you do when you have a less-than-stellar weight-loss week? If your week was like mine last week, let's climb back on the horse together, share tips and encouragement, and aim for a great weigh-in next Wednesday!

Replace the brownies with a chocolate nutrition bar with some protein and fiber. And just don't eat the brownies.

That alone would of made the difference between losing weight and staying the same.

And don't forget the power of the mind when it comes to losing excess body fat. Get your own body to shift into a fat burning mode. 24 hours a day.

Good ideas, David. Protein and fiber always helps keep me on a better path! Thanks.

I love your post! You can do it! Or you can try some healthy food recipes at www.foodista.com :)

Hello......weighing in with weight GAIN.....ugh! Now I'm 138.8 whereas last week I was just 138. Not even going to comment on why but let's just say my honey treated me to my favorite almond nougat candy and I'm a fiend for it. The visual image would be tyrannasaurus rex stalking the earth til satiated. Anyway, still drank my prescribed water, still took my vitamins and my new resolution this week is not to eat sweets, but to replace with fruit or yogurt.

Just checked out foodista.com. COOL site! But now I want a big crab dinner... ;)

And Joy, sorry to hear you're having a no-loss-week, too. We will have a good weigh in next Wed!! That candy sounds really yummy. Tell your sweetie it has to be a RARE treat!

Just went to Trader Joe's and bought fruit, hummus, high-fiber cereal, skim milk, turkey breast... Here's to a GOOD week, everybody!

I weight .2 MORE. 139 lbs now. Just thought I'd report and ask if there will be a post for week 4 from "see Mommy lose weight"

Hey Joy,

Yep. It's coming later today. Too swamped to do it yesterday so I posted something else that I dad in the works. But today's the day!
