Wk 81 Weigh In

Saturday, October 27, 2012

So I had a better week this week, not great mind you, but better overall. I am feeling a lot less stressed out and that is a big improvement. I didn't get to the gym very much this week, but I'm not angry with myself over it and that's a good thing.

My weight was pretty good most of the week. I was on track for a decent loss, until Thursday. I don't know what happened, because I was basically doing the same thing every day, but Thursday morning, my weight was over a one pound up from Wednesday morning and that carried through to Friday as well.

Short explanation on my weighing/ dieting process. I follow a 6 on /1 off system. Sunday through Friday I am on a diet, but on Saturday, I eat whatever I want! It works for several reasons which I won't go into here, but suffice it to say that I've lost 100lbs this way. Anyway, I weigh myself daily (I know, I know), I do this to monitor progress, not to stress myself out. On Sundays typically I am 3-4 lbs heavier than Saturday morning (due to overfeeding on Saturdays). Usually by Wednesday that 3-4 lbs is gone and I am already below my previous Saturday weigh in. So that gives me all day Wed., Thurs, and Friday to remove an extra before Saturdays weigh in. Like I said, this works for me, it may not work for everyone.

With all of that said, let's get to the numbers.

Weight : 218.0
Lost : .6
Total : 99.2

So I only managed to shed .6 this week. Oh well, it's still a loss :) Time to relax, go have lunch with my son and then get back to relaxing. Tomorrow starts another week and another chance to get it right.

Have a great weekend everybody!

    Wow, Ken - we follow a very similar pattern, to the day! Saturdays are my day to indulge. We usually go out to eat, or we'll hit DQ, whatever strikes our fancy that day. I don't go crazy all day long, but it's my day to enjoy the less healthier options. Then its tons of water and back on track the rest of the week. Works for me, too! I'm a daily weigh-er, too. Need it to keep myself accountable. I find when I don't weigh myself for weeks, or months at a time, that's when the weight creeps back on. I only count Saturday morning weigh ins though.

As for your .6, you're right. It's in the right direction! I had several .6's in a row and it was a bit maddening, but again, had to remind myself better going down than up. We know if we consistently make good choices, it eventually shows up. It's a battle of wills sometimes, but we're stronger than that darned scale!

You're doing great. Keep it up!! Hope you enjoyed your lunch!
