What a total bummer. So here I am thinking I'm doing awesome at this weight loss thing and I go to work and check out their scale. It doesn't match up. Then I do to the challenge place for my community weight loss challenge to weigh in because I have two totally difference weight, with a ten pound difference. Their scale matches work. NOOOOOOO!
That means my scale is ten pounds off. I have a broke scale. Normally, I'd take it! But really I'd just be lying to myself. So now I've adjusted my weight and my losses and updated everything. Still I have lost a total of 10 pounds for the month of January, which is wonderful. That's an average of a loss of 2.5 pounds a week. So I will take it, I shouldn't be upset and really I'm not, it's just that 20 pounds versus 10 pounds. Big difference.
I'm doing very good. I'm feeling proud of myself for losing 10 pounds this month. I was very rushed today with everything and still got in 1 mile with WATP and a 2 mile walk outside at the park when transitioning from one fieldwork site to another. I chose to walk instead of drive home and waste gas! Good for me!
As for my protein intake, I had a cup of oatmeal with milk and brown sugar, then for lunch I ate an egg sandwich, I still need 53 - 70 more in protein and about 1,068 - 1,418 in calories. I don't know if I can eat all that. I really don't know. I've already had 800 calories and I'm not hungry. It seem so foolish to be worrying about eating enough when so many times people are trying to have less. I don't want my body in starvation mode. I don't want it counterproductive in my weight loss. I'm sure I will work it out in time. I just need to handle it one day at a time.
