I'm sure I am not the only one who feels this way, but there are times that either I wish I could "choke" our bathroom scale (assuming it has a throat to choke!), and give it a BIG hug! I had such a situation in the past few days....
Thursday: Normal Thursday breakfast with eggs, etc (I love to cook breakfast for my DW and I!). Had a light lunch knowing for V-day we were going to do fondue. And we did pretty darn good at dinner -- shrimp and beef in the fondue using vegetable broth and a 1/2 of a twice baked potato that had a cauliflower / broccoli along with the potato mixed together. Ah, but since it was V-day, splurged a little and had some GS cookies and fresh strawberries, and had them pretty late.
Friday: In spite of, for the most part, eating well om Thursday, the GS cookies cost me on the scale, as I came in at 181.6. (This is the "hate" part of the relationship, as if the scale was responsible for the less than satisfying reading!)
Nothing bad, but I have been at this plateau for the better part of 3+ months now, and really want to lose that last 2+ pounds to get to my "normal" BMI range. So, I started a challenge with the 50+ Males team -- a two week "you pick your challenge", and of course mine is to lose those 2.6 pounds.
Normally, I am a once a week weigh-in person, but since I am focused on these 2.6 pounds, I've decided to do daily tracking for the next two weeks.
Saturday (today): Stepped on the scale not expecting anything big, and what do you know -- DOWN 1.6 pounds to an even 180!! What was the difference: Lighter dinner Friday evening, no cookies, and a darn good interval training workout on Friday (30 minutes of running / 20 minutes of strength training). This, of course is the "love" part of the relationship!
I'm sure there will be a few more ups and downs over the next few weeks, but now I'm very motivated and excited to get that last pound off and join the ranks of "regular"!
