I went into this weigh-in thinking I was going to have a gain or remain stagnant. I ate out too many times this week, and while I made the best of a lot of situations (like getting brown rice with my Chinese food instead of white), I was still in those situations too much. I had pizza for dinner on Sunday and lunch yesterday. I had sugar a couple times (sometimes on purpose and sometimes by accident), and it totally messed me up. I got all jittery and tingly. And that's why I thought this week would be a bust.
So let's get to the numbers.
296.8. I was wrong! I lost 2.6 pounds this week for a total of 15.2 pounds. I'm feeling really good about this number.
To be honest, I weigh myself almost every day. I know I shouldn't, and it drove me crazy when I used to do it. I give myself permission to fluctuate now. I don't let a slightly higher reading take the wind out of my sails. I remind myself that the weekly weigh-in number is the important one. The lowest weight I've hit recently is just a hair below this, but it was after a bike ride on a hot day when I didn't eat lunch. This weigh-in is the real deal. Normal time, normal activity. This is official.
