I had a large gain last week and an even larger loss this week. I got on a scale and lost 7.2 lbs. Woo hoo! Let me break that weight loss down for you. I know it wasn't real just as I knew last week the gain wasn't real. There were so many factors that came into play with my gain last week that are also coming into play with my loss. Before my weigh in last week, I had gone a little overboard with eating and therefore I had way to much sodium in my system and also the food (I have stomach issues and don't "poo" like I should so I get backed up often). Also, I started my period this week so I had bloating and weight gain from that. Combine all of that together, and you get my gain last week of 4.2 lbs.
This week, I stayed low on sodium and ate within my calorie ranges for the most part, exercise, took exlax to clean myself out (otherwise I would end up in severe discomfort and pain) and the bloating from my period should be subsiding. Therefore, I got on the scale this morning and saw that I weighed in at 246.6 when last week I was up to 253.8.
I am not getting very excited about this because really, in order to know this weight loss was real, I have to maintain it or lose more next week. But I am just happy to see the numbers down. I will be sticking to my calorie range and exercise schedule this week...hell, all this month. March was a horrible month in weight loss. I only lost 2.8 lbs for the whole month of March. I was clawing my way back and it was a uphill climb, but I think I have finally gotten there.
I weigh in with my trainer tomorrow and he knows not to expect much of a weight loss if any. But I know he is going to be disappointed because he says I am his favorite client. He gets so excited at our weigh ins. I mean, seriously, he gets more excited about my weight loss then I do. It's so cute. So I know even though he knows not to expect anything, he is going to be disappointed.
But I will make up for it at our next weigh in come May. I am determined to make up for my lack of weight loss in March by kicking ass in April. I am thinking maybe, just maybe, my body may be confused enough or have gotten comfortable enough with all the extra calories to maybe let me drop more then the average 2 lbs per week. If I only lose 8 lbs this month, that is ok, but I am aiming for double digits. When I hit double digits in January, my trainer was so excited. I wanna see if I can make him "shine" again.
We'll see. But either way, I am going to do better this month then I did last month.
