Still up!

SO weird! I was down to 164.5 at one point and sticking there for a few days...Then one morning I weighed in and the scale said 177!!! HUH? I thought it had to be a fluke...

It did kind of go back down a bit a few days later but I am still sitting at 168-169...SO FRUSTRATING!!! I am trying to be patient though...

On a more positive note, yesterday was SUCH a great day at work. I did a presentation in front of my entire office (80 people)! I have never presented anything before in my life so I was a bit nervous but it went really well and I got lots of compliments afterwards.

One of my co-workers told me that she had a hard time listening to what I was saying because I looked so HOT! She said that other people in the office were commenting on how good I looked to her too. Such a good feeling. I do see most of these people every day but some had come in from out east and I hadn't seen them in a while so I got lots of good responses from them on my weight loss.

Our President did his presentation and it was so inspiring. He has such a genuine excitement for our company and our industry and it is infectious. I work for a company that sells cruises for all the big cruise companies, and business has never been better even despite the recession. We are really blessed.

After the presentation we all opened up secret santa presents and then went off to a nearby restaurant for our annual Christmas Party. It was really fun! So nice to be part of such a great work team. We really are like a family and I am so grateful for that.

Today is moving day in the office, I am packing up my tiny cubical and moving over to a much bigger and more efficient work space that they have been kind enough to create for me and my co-worker. My space will be double come Monday morning, thank goodness!

So even though I am a bit frustrated with the weight loss numbers, I am still having lots of non-scale victories this week so that definitely helps. Still keeping up the weight training and have been following the Venus Index three times a week...and loving it. My fasting has been on target and so I am just going to keep on, keeping on and hope that the scale shows me a number that I am more happy with soon!


  1. It will come back down! Keep the faith.
    Congratulations on your work success!!!
    I'm having a heavy week also, at least we're not alone in that. But I'm sure those pounds will come off within the next week, and they'll take a friend or two with them. :)

  2. I believe it will come down and praying it will be sooner rather than later. You rock!! Yay for non-scale victories!! I've been off this week. Major family stresses with the death of my former mother-in-law and then my stepson got in some big trouble...I'll leave it at that. Thanks for continuing to be a strong force on the fasting front. Love ya!

  3. You are such an inspiration! I started back on the Fast5 this week. I have been off since January (when you started) and I have paid the price!!!

    LOL ... a woman told you that you looked HOT? Oh my. You do look beautiful and I'm so happy for you!

    I pray the weight starts moving down for you soon. Please pray for me as well.

    Have a great day,

  4. Just wanted to let you know to look for a post I have scheduled for Thursday. I've mentioned you in the post also..I hope you will find some encouragement also from what I share...I do appreciate ALL the resources and the information that you put out there for this life style!!! ((hugs)) You hot chick you!! lol

  5. Great job on that presentation! Reading your blog inspired me to start intermittent fasting too. I used to weight myself obsessively and get upset about every extra pound, but I almost starved myself once hardly eating anything at all when the scales showed a weight gain, only to find out a couple of weeks later that the scales were just messed up. :-)) And you know very well how crazy and unpredictable the water retention can be... especially around certain days of the month. :-) So don't get discouraged and keep going! And hey, all the compliments you get... can it just be that your body has found the right and healthy weight for it?

  6. Hey Jenna! How's it going? Was wondering if your scale's finally being sensible. :)
    (mine's still not... Deep breath... Patience...)
    Luck to you!
