Spring In2 Action – Week 3 – The Shrinking Jeans of Mel


March 23, 2011 By Mel

So, this challenge is just not going as I had hoped.  If you can believe it, I’m still sick.  I went back to my regular physician on Tuesday who gave me a couple of new prescriptions and referred me to a pulmonologist.  Her office was in the same medical medical building as my regular physician, so I stopped by on my way out to book the appointment.  Thankfully, they had a cancellation for this morning so they were able to get me in right away.  The bad part, she let me know I have pneumonia and gave me even more prescriptions. Oh joy. So, this is what my bathroom counter looks like right now, well sort of.  I just realized that one of my inhalers isn’t in the photo.  On top of all this, I also have a Ventolin rescue inhaler for use as needed.

Anyway, here was my weigh in for Week 3 of the Spring In2 Action challenge:

Challenge Starting Weight: 260.8
Last Week’s Weight:
Current Weight: 262.6 Weekly Loss: +0.8 Total Challenge Loss: +1.8

So, the 0.8 I lost last week was back this week.  At this rate, my goal of getting down to 255 before the end of the challenge is probably impossible isn’t looking too good. Honestly though, given the amount of out of control eating I did last week, I’m very surprised it wasn’t a much larger gain. I did manage to get myself back on track though and today marks Day 3 of staying OP and tracking all my food. Go me! Hopefully going back on the Prednisone again won’t have a negative impact on the scale.

Until next time …
