Progress Tracking – Fresh Start



November 5, 2017

I’m up by just under 1 lb this weekend over last weekend.  Overall, I don’t think that’s too bad considering I’ve not exercised and hadn’t been eating super well due to a headache I’ve had since Friday afternoon.  I still have it but have decided to get on with things as nothing I’ve taken or done has helped.

As this is my first weigh-in for this month, I also took my measurements, which are all fairly close to the original amounts and some have gone down slightly.

Measurements on 11/5/17

Bust – 41 in (down 1.5 in)

Chest – 38.5 in (down 2 in)

Upper arm – 14 in (same)

Forearm – 10 in (down .5 in)

Waist – 41 in (down 1 in)

Hips – 49.5 in (down 1.5 in)

Midway – 48 in (up .5 in) (this is halfway between your waist and hips)

Thighs – 31 in (up .5 in)

Knees – 20.5 in (same) (just above your knee, not the actual knee)

Calves – 16.5 in (down .25 in)

My stats for the last week aren’t as good as the one prior, due to my headache putting me out for several days and doing other evening activities cutting down on my walking for several more.  I got a monthly report, though, from Map My Fitness and I did pretty good in October overall.

Also, my macros from the last week aren’t too bad, with my fats being close to the target most days.  I do see a lot of days where my carbs were over though, so that’s something to work on.

Happily, more progress to report as I’m down another 2lbs this week, giving me 5.5lbs since I started this new tracker page.  I don’t think it’s helping that my highest carb days are right before my weigh-ins but I’m happy I’m still making progress.  With Halloween and shark week this coming week I’ll take every pound I can get.


Each of my apps provides weekly summaries so here’s a screenshot from each.  The first is my FitBit, which provides a nice overview of everything.  Then My Fitness Pal, which shows how well I’m meeting all my macros goals.  Finally, Map My Fitness, which I use to track all my walking.

Yay, progress to track.  I’m down about 3.5 lbs from last week, which is good considering I did have a few indulging days.  I think the extra physical activity is really helping and the more I do, the more I want to do.  I’m working on getting better with the eating each week and tracking in My Fitness Pal really helps me a lot.

Well, I’m exactly the same weight I was last week, lol.  On the plus side it hasn’t gone up any.  As I ate pretty heavy over the weekend I’m not too surprised but am more motivated to have a decrease come next week.

I can’t believe it’s been July since I did a post, it definitely doesn’t feel that long. I’ve been tracking my meals and working on being active most days but wanted to get back established in those routines before I came back to posting as it can be time consuming.

I’m ready now and it’s Happy New Year for me because I’m mentally re-committed, which is the important first step.  To help, I’ve joined My Peak Challenge, a nutrition and fitness plan that helps you work up to a personal goal, often physical.

As my day one, below are starting pictures and measurements.
