Hail-Mary Weigh-in (Part 2)

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Original Blog:

posted April 02, 2011

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!

    Ha...are you? Are you trying to sabotage yourself to stay around here with us on Spark? lol

Great job either way! I think you could have eaten way worse so great job on eating Asian where you are sure to get an order of veggies.

    That's pretty good going considering the week you've had! emoticon
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?
