I'm having such a good week, I decided to cheat and check the scale a day early. Not only did I not lose any week from last week, I in fact weighed slightly more than last Friday! The sound you heard was my bubble being burst. I think we can chalk this gain up to salt. I was ravenous last night and it was just K and me for supper so I fixed us a couple of hot dogs. I ate two, one with a bun and one without. And then I ate what was left of K's. Thought I was doing myself a big favor by skipping the bun and getting a little more protein. It occurred to me as I was cleaning up to check the calorie count on the package. Ahem! 170 calories for one! And the sodium is right up there, too. Guess I'll be checking out turkey dogs next time around.
I did throw away the fourth hot dog before I ate it. That's progress.
I did make ice cream again last night and had a small sample. Now desert for the weekend is in the bag and I can turn my attention towards cleaning the house and trying to figure out where to seat 25 people.
Since the scales were disappointing I took some measurements this morning. I don't do this often, but my hip measurement was down 1.5 inches from two months ago and everything else was pretty close to the same, so that made me feel good.
I'll post the "official" weight tomorrow as usual. I really want to get to 192 and achieve my next mini-goal of losing 20 pounds on SP.
