My Weight Loss Journey – Week 9

My Weight Loss Journey Week 9

I can’t believe that it has already been nine weeks already since I started my weight loss journey – week 9: I am up a pound this week. I am not too worried about it since I had a huge loss last week. I am still down 15 lbs since I started my journey 9 weeks ago. I didn’t go to the doctor after I sprained my ankle a little over a week ago. It was pretty bruised and it still hurt to walk on it some. I have to wear a compression ankle support to help keep the swelling down and keep my ankle steady.

My hips are bothering me today. I don’t think it is necessarily anything that I did to aggravate it. I had physical therapy this afternoon and I had my two month evaluation so he didn’t have time to stretch it out like he normally does. Also, they are dropping me down to once a week so I will have to do my exercises at home. I am going to have to block out time in my schedule so that I do it.

My current weight is 212.

I stayed on track with logging everything I ate into MyFitness Pal.  Sunday was hard as there are so many temptations at church. I ended up eating junk food and while it isn’t totally off my list I do try hard to limit it since it takes up precious calories.

Here are my current goals for this week:

  • eat more vegetables – This is a work in progress. I did eat a few more vegetables some days but not others.
  • continue my physical therapy exercises at home on days that I don’t go to physical therapy – I failed in this area this week. I need to work doing my exercises at home.
  • continue eating 1600 calories or less a day
  • drink more water every day – I haven’t drank very much water at all so this is still a work in progress for me.
  • continue taking 2 burpless fish oil capsules and B-12 vitamins from Nature Made

  1. I would love to lose weight, but I can’t. My main goal right now is to not let this pregnancy take over my body and gain to much weight.

  2. Being down 15lbs overall is amazing, and you are doing so well sticking with it. I really need to get my booty in gear and start working out again.
