Saturday Weigh In - 06/16

Today's post is late.  Chalk it up to PMS!  

For years, I have rarely become moody around that "special" time of the month.  If I did, it was usually in the form of being extra sensitive or taking things too personal.  Lately, however, I truly don't know what's going on with my hormones... the last few months I've been having some major issues with PMS (major anger/rage/irritability)!  I'm seriously contemplating going to the doctor to see if maybe the weight loss is {negatively} affecting my hormones somehow...  I'm always battling anger/rage/irritability issues because of my Bipolar - but what I'm dealing with goes above and beyond my "usual" feelings.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

Oh, well... on to my week.  Things on the exercise front were phenomenal this week.  Here's a breakdown of my workout week...

Saturday - DAY OFF!
Sunday - Zumba
Monday - 6.5 mile run & 5 mile bike ride
Tuesday - 2 mile run/2.29 mile walk & strength training
Wednesday - 4.23 mile run & 4.16 mile bike ride
Thursday - 1 mile run, 2.63 mile bike ride, Zumba & strength training
Friday - DAY OFF!

I burned a total of 6,954 calories and exercised for a total of 9 hours and 31 minutes this week!  I felt awesome and so full of energy all week.

I've been great with my eating too; I'm still on track and eating lots of healthy, delicious food!

I know my posts are usually longer but as previously mentioned - I'm in a bit of a mood, so I'm going to wrap this up.

Here's my weekly progress...

Current weight: 227.2
Last week's weight: 229.6

Difference: -2.4 lbs
Total lost: -48.8 lbs

So, soooooooo close to losing 50 pounds - I can't wait (if I'm this excited about 50 pounds - I can't begin to imagine when I make it to 100 pounds)!

I'm a LOSER, baby!


  1. Amazing! You are doing a phenomenal job, especially with the exercise! I'm still lagging on that front.

    I noticed my PMS symptoms changed over the last couple of years. I feel like I'm grouchier, and anything will set me off. I chalked it up to age!

  2. Subhan'Allah Serena how great !!! so happy for you.. I actually left you a post on the last big Weight in where you had the 4 pictures up and I could see you actually SHRUNK !!!

As you said you're so close to the 50, keep racing to the hundred !! and you're officially the BIGGEST loser by FAR from everyone I've ever know, congrats yiha !!
