Hail-Mary Weigh-in (Part 2)

It's that weigh-in where I've eaten too much, not exercised enough, usually not slept all that well. Sometimes, like this week, the midweek points to either no loss or a gain. Yet the scale does something totally unexpected.

My weigh this morning was the exact same as the last HM.

This week I was out and about all week. Midweek had me up by about a pound and a half. I ate out every day this week except Thursday. Sometimes twice a day.

Yesterday was the most stressful of them all and most awkward logistically. Seeing as my goose was pretty much cooked (*) weigh-in-wise, I decided "what the heck". Let's see if we can hit 205!!

I got an order of the general's chicken from the local take out place before getting home, went out grabbed a slice of pizza (**) an hour later, and washed it down with a ginger-ale.

It wasn't a question of whether I would be back over 200, it was a question of how much. The scale had a different slant.

08.03: (203.0@22)
08.10: (200.8@22)
08.17: (200.0@21)
08.24: (202.4@21)
08.31: (198.4@22) Below 200!!!!
09.07: (198.6@22) Most worthless weigh-in ever

09.14: (199.0@22) Back abov.......wait a minute. What?

I'm probably the only person on the planet that is wondering whether his scale is broken because I expected a higher number (***)

I've kind of promised this to my sparkfriends. When the summer fruits started going out of season, I would start really striving toward detox mode for beating the sugar addiction. While there are still a fair amount of peaches, strawberries, etc. at my local store, there are far less organic offerings.

Over the next week, I plan to eat a lot of the foods that knocked my sugar cravings to about 400 and then start whittling even further. By early November, I hope to be really close to or at a full detox.

Here's hoping.

the pair of dark grey jeans that has traditionally fit me best when at 210-215 has officially been relegated to the fat pants pile. They fit awfully.

Next week, I plan to be really close to 195, if not there.

Here's hoping.

- TD Out!

(*) I don't know. Who DOES still use that term. See? I can read your mind.

(**) At the place who cuts large pizzas into 4 quarters and calls each a slice

(***) Don't hate him because he's beautiful.

    emoticon That means that 195 is most likely doable with a week on plan and eating sensibly. Keep pushing forward!

    A better week with less stress should yield great results!

    Hey, that is great news, TD, if pure luck!
    Are you trying to sabotage yourself, by any chance?
