Week 6: Days 6 & 7

I told you I was tired.

So tired, in fact, that I went to bed without doing much of anything last night. My students will have to wait for their graded papers. Sorry guys.

I weighed in today too…


I lost another 1.1 pounds this week.

I’m not going to lie, I’m a little disappointed. I know in my rational head that losing over a pound in a week is good and healthy. But, after 6 weeks of losing about 5 pounds a week, seeing that little number was a bit disconcerting.

But I DID lose weight. And I’ve lost over 26 pounds in just over 6 weeks. That’s INSANE. And AMAZING. It’s time to actually start exercising though, which I’ve been dreading. Any insight on a good treadmill for the house?

Well, my grad school work is done for the night, so I’m signing off to be unproductive now. I can’t believe that I’m starting my 7th week of this program. I honestly was unsure if I’d make it this far…


  1. I think you are doing great Mara! So proud that you’ve stuck with it – even when I lost my 70 pounds in a year back in 1999 – I had WEEKS of just losing a pound, and then bam, I would lose 4. Your body is still adjusting to this program I think – keep it up! 😀
