This was a rough week for me. You see, last week brought a 3.8 lb loss, but I did a bit of "cheating" to achieve that number. I had weighed myself that morning and saw a 2.2 lb loss, that was good, but I wanted to be more ahead schedule than that. So, without taking in any water, I headed to the gym and spent 40 minutes on the stair master. I came home and re-weighed and got the 3.8 lb loss. It was a bit of sneaky dehydration work that did the trick for me. BUT, after getting a lot of water that day and having a huge free day lunch and a larger dinner than I really needed I saw my shenanigans being repaid to me the next day. When I got on the scale on Sunday morning to see what my free day damage was I was shocked. It said 228.4, 9.2 lbs heavier than the day before.
So all this week I have really killing myself to shed that extra weight (mostly water of course, but I just couldn't get it to come off). On Thursday I was still almost 2 lbs above my Saturday weight :( But still I continued to fight at the gym, eat pretty good and drink lots of water.
Which leads me to today. I was just hoping that I would be down a little, to see at least some positive movement and not be totally undone by my childish trickery of the previous weigh in day. So without further adieu, the numbers:
Weight : 217.8
Lost : 1.4
Total : 99.4
I was amazed to see that I lost 1.4 lbs. Holy smokes! I was just hoping to drop .4 or .6 so I am pretty darn happy with what I got. But you can bet I won't be playing any more dehydration games. This week was too much work and too stressful on me!
I'm done writing, I need to go relax a bit and plan my week of school work. I'm trying to finish a 4 unit class (Global Economics) before I go on vacation next week and I've done 3 papers with just one more left (yay). Already finished the 6 unit class (Quantitative Analysis and Business Applications) so before I leave I will have 10 units completed in 10 weeks! I am going to enjoy taking a week off and getting out of here!!!
