Saturday Scale Says

"Saturday Scale Says" is going away for a while.  From the very beginning of this journey, prior to this blog, I promised myself I'd not get hung up on the number on the scale.  I promised myself that I'd measure success in other ways.  I believe that I have achieved that to a point.  If not, I would have given up a long time ago. 

But not entirely, I still want to get to 145 on the scale and I want to get there as soon as possible.  I have moderated some, in that I don't give myself goals to lose so many pounds per week or anything like that.  I feel like I am still too focused on that number.

I keep charts and graphs of my weight, and I will continue to do so.  I think it is important to see trends and make adjustments.  Other people have other tools.  This is mine and that's OK.  I'm just going to put that in the background for a bit.  I'll post a monthly weight to keep myself accountable to the cyberworld, just like I do for my doctor.

Instead, I'll post my "Monday Mileage" blogs every Monday to keep everyone informed of my progress on that front.  I have a lot to say about that on Monday, so stay tuned!


  1. I'm all about doing what works for you:)

  2. whatever you need to do for YOU darlin, we're all just along for the joyous, thrilling, scary roller coaster ride and lucky to be following in your wake! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  3. I have lost over 50 but want to lose more. I am in size 18's would love to be in a 14/16 but this last few months has been HARD!

  4. Hey Lori,

    I'd love to join the 1000 mile challenge. I like the idea of combining bike and pedestrian miles. Do I just post my weekly milage on my own blog or do I report to someone? I got in a 15 mile bike ride in today's great weather! re your last post, I've also been wearing my pedometer since Christmas and have yet to meet my 10000 step goal! But the steps add up, anyway.

  5. What ever works for you is what you should do. Keep on adding up those miles and keep doing what works for you.
