Weigh In: 1/21/13- Should I Be Happy?

Monday, January 21, 2013

My last official weigh-in on Spark was about 4 weeks ago, right before Christmas. I was 124.8 lbs, and I got my measurements too. However, I do weigh myself more than that... A week later I was 125.6 lbs (no measurements taken). Last week and two weeks ago, I didn't weigh myself using the "morning, before breakfast, after using the bathroom" method.

But this is now week 1 of the next round of hormones, and I actually had time today to do this lol. So, I weighed myself.

121.6 lbs.

I want to do my measurements, but I left my 60" cloth tape measure at Rob's and I can't find my 30" one even though I was fiddling around with it yesterday. When I find it, I'll compare... But I do remember my waist being 26" last night, with abs engaged.

I'm now curious if I should be happy. Obviously this is weight loss which is great. 4 lbs in 3 weeks though I would say more accurately 3.2 lbs in 4 weeks with two big holidays in between... This obviously surpasses my January goal of 123.4 lbs. It's like, 5 lbs away from my goal...

But I'm worried about getting too excited over this. What if I'm just mega dehydrated? I don't want to get all "yeah, I'm like 122, it's pretty cool" and then when I get un-dehydrated have that spike and then feel shame that I gained it back... so, I don't know...

Also... Weight is just a number. It honestly doesn't matter, because it doesn't tell anything about your health when you're in a perfectly healthy weight range. I want to slim down just a little bit more, yeah, but I'm at the point where I want to lose weight MEGA SLOWLY. I've upped my daily calorie goal to 1400-1500! I want my body to stop catabolizing any arm muscle I may gain. I want to focus on building up my muscles, not just fat loss...

Whatever. I lost 4 lbs. I'm going to be happy :)

    I agree... whatever... You lost 4 pounds. I eat about 1500 / day too.

    It's about how your "feel" silly... How do you feel? Healthy and Strong? I hope so.

    Woohoo I am happy for you. Your right the scale does not tell the whole story. If I can walk with a friend or play with the grandkids and keep up with them I know Iam doing all right. emoticon
