Week 30 Weigh-in and update on the Affirmation Challenge

This morning I weighed-in at 260.2 pounds. That means I lost .6 pounds since last Friday. Considering my weekend indulgence on last week’s camping trip, and the fact that I didn’t get to the gym this week, I am very happy with the result. Down is down after all.

Other than the weekend, I stuck to my Weight Watchers points for the week. As I mentioned, I didn’t get to the gym this week, and I need to remedy that in the coming week. I also haven’t been walking as much, and need to step that back up as well.

I am now on day 26 of the affirmation challenge. So far I have kept up the pace. It has become increasingly difficult to come up with a unique affirmation each day, but not difficult to find something to affirm in my life. There are 5 days (including today), left, and I am confident that I will get in 30 in 30.

I thought I would share this one from back on September 22:

I am courageous. Sometimes I am full of fear about things, but that fear doesn’t stop me. I act in spite of my fear – that is my definition of courage.

Like everyone else, I have fears in my life. Some are quite common, like my fear of heights. Others are deeper seeded and have to do with my fears about my own mortality and whether I am living up to expectations – both my own and others’. I have struggled with depression in the past, and sometimes that depression did make me shut down. These days I have learned to cope with my fears, and to face them head on. I find that when I allow myself to worry about my fears, then the thing that scares me grows. But, when I face it head on, it shrinks before my eyes.

For the coming week my plan is to be on points for the week, and to hit the gym at least 3 times.

How are you doing on your journey? What are your goals for the week?


  1. Excellent! It’s nice to indulge once in a while and still see a loss!

    My goal for the coming week is simply to keep it up! I already feel much better and need to keep it up. I will not let the stress of life bring me down!
