Progress Update – Total Pounds Lost in 6 Weeks

| |

68 Days left of my weight loss journal, for Bikini prep 2023

Thought I’d check in for an update! It’s been 6 weeks since I began my “prep” this year. I mentioned I wanted to lose weight slowly. I was thinking 8-10 lbs over 16 weeks (check out day 1 here). I based this on my stage weight last summer, but also hoping I had gained a few pounds of muscle over the past year.

But, even saying “I want to lose weight slowly”, I kind of was just trying to convince myself. It’s more fun to see significant progress every week, and to be ready SUPER early so I wouldn’t be stressed about making it in time.

But, I’m glad it’s happening at the rate it is. So, if I averaged the scale weight throughout a week (rather than report the random highs and lows), I’m officially down 4lbs. I’m pretty happy with the progress, and I really do feel leaner. (I’m actually down 8 lbs from October, when I first started tracking)

Although I haven’t eaten very differently the past 6 weeks, I have been a lot more consistent. Meaning, I haven’t eaten in excess of my tracking once a week like I was doing last fall.

Anyway, that’s my update! And for fun, my mom just sent me this photo she found from a 9th grade yearbook someone had uploaded to Ancestry.com! My “after photo” is from last summer. I don’t have many full body pictures, and I rarely take selfies, so I grabbed that one. I’m probably the same weight in that photo as currently, so I shared it.
