Week 55 Weigh-in – The ride continues

Last week I talked about the roller coaster ride that has been my weight over the last few weeks. This week the ride continued. I weighed-in today at 228.6 pounds, that is a 2.2 pound gain from last week.

I have to admit, it is discouraging. I guess if the pattern holds, then I will be down about 3 pounds next week. Not to worry, though, I am not giving up, and I am not changing what I am doing. I have seen too many people hit a plateau like this and start making changes to their approach. Not me. I am going to say the course, keep doing what I am doing, and know that eventually the weight will come off. In the meantime I am going to remember:

  • That I am down 116 pounds
  • I am more active than I have been in my adult life
  • My confidence is soaring because of how great I feel

I will lose the remaining weight to get to my goal, that I know. If it takes a long time to do it, then so be it.


  1. This is reassuring to know. For me of course. I know how disheartening these weigh-ins can be but I’ve been told that the fitter the body gets the harder it becomes to lose the weight. I’m noticing that myself. I don’t lose weight every week. But I’m active healthier and more determined than I have ever been.

    Have you read/ researched about how to combat plateaus? I haven’t reached that stage yet. I like your determination to stay the path but have you considered you might have to change what you are doing if you don’t get the results you want?


I'd love to read what you think. Feel free to comment. You can do so anonymously if you like, but I'd really like to know who you are if you don't mind. Thank you for reading! :)
