Ugh. Short today. I’m irritated.
August 15, 2014
Weight: 408.8 pounds
Change from Last Week: +8.4 pounds
Change from All-Time Highest: –17.2 pounds
Yes, I know I didn’t really gain eight pounds. I’m putting the scale away, although I have a hunch that if I got on it tomorrow, I’d see a drop even from today.
Oh, and I’m irritated with myself, not the process. This doesn’t confuse me as to why I gained; I know why I gained. I ate poorly, drank water poorly, slept poorly, and didn’t work out enough.
Onward and downward. Next week, hopefully I’ll show a nice, healthy loss.
I was SO close to meeting my goal! I set a goal of being below 400 for this week. I got REALLY close, but close only counts in horseshoes and grenades.

Weight: 400.4 pounds
Change from Last Week: –2.4 pounds
Change from All-Time Highest: –24.6 pounds
Still, the scale is moving in the right direction, and I will happily take 2.4 pounds a week!
If you’ve been following The Ranger Project, I just got a Fitbit and I am already in love with the food tracking feature on their website. Hopefully, this little device will give me the push I need to stick to this!
I’m finally back! Stellar Path has never been a big blog, but I found that I missed it. I know it’s just one voice in a sea of millions, but it’s my voice, and I found that I needed it.
Before I delve into this weigh-in, let me first say that I have been a very regular vlogger! I am now doing a daily vlog called The Ranger Project. Now, in the past when I spoke of doing something daily, I’d do it for three or four days and then quit. Not this time. Today, I’ll be posting Day #62 of The Ranger Project. I’ve actually vlogged EVERY DAY for two months.
The Ranger Project is a vlogging experiment. It’s part-fiction, part-reality. It is far more reality than not, but the fictional aspect shows up from time to time. Basically, in it, I am describing my daily weight loss efforts, along with a side story of receiving mysterious packages that guide me toward reaching goal weight and becoming a Power Ranger in preparation for a colossal fight on August 23, 2016.
I plan to blog here at least once a week. Right now, Fridays will be my weigh-in day.
On the first day of the Ranger Project, June 1st, I weighed 419 pounds.
On July 1st, I weighed 414 pounds. At that time, I pledged to give up the scale for a month.
It was a terrible decision. I would have liked to know on multiple occasions how I had done.
So, how did I do?
August 1, 2014
Change from Last Weigh-in: –11.2 pounds
Change from All-Time Highest: –22.2 pounds
I had hoped to break 400. I didn’t, but I’ll consider 11.2 pounds lost in a month a decent victory. I could have done better, and I will strive to do better in the month of August (although I will be weighing in weekly).
One thing I find very interesting – prior to this most recent extreme weight gain, 402.8 was my former highest weight. It isn’t any longer, but this is where I am standing now
This is familiar territory. The weight will come off.
Next week, I plan to be below 400, for the first time in quite a while. See you then!
