Week 3 - Day 1 - Weigh In

Monday, November 04, 2013

Well one pound is better than nothing. I was worried the number wouldn't have moved at all or even gone up because I'm feeling super bloated this morning. And when I say super bloated, I mean it! I can see the bloat in the mirror, and it wasn't there yesterday morning.

I ate into the high end of my range yesterday. Something I've only done maybe twice since I started and never this high. I was still within my limits, I didn't go over on anything. I had a really good daily nutrition report, just a little under in a couple of nutrients but almost perfect.

I was just craving something different, something salty and sweet and crunchy. Cravings happen to me rarely, so I try to indulge them if I can when they do so I never feel like I'm missing out. I fed this particular craving a Quaker Oats Quinoa granola bar and a half serving of baked potato chips. And I further indulged it by eating pizza for dinner. All measured and tracked. Didn't even go over on sodium for the day. But I'm bloated today nonetheless. That would be one way to sabotage your weigh in!

Oh well, a pound is a pound is a pound. Maybe next Sunday I won't bloat myself and the weigh in on Monday morning will be more dramatic!

In other updates, 20 minutes on the treadmill yesterday! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks everyone! I think I wanted a little more drama, but I am definitely taking it as a win. When I made my goal it was to lose 1 pound a week. So, I'm on target!

    It literally takes me 14-20 days to drop a pound, and I am pretty careful about what I eat and moving a LOT, so please know that one pound a week is terrific progress. Also, it is the type of progress that is more likely to stay off! Dropping 3 or 4 pounds a week (after the first week) isn't healthy and it isn't really sustainable.
    I think people are really confused by the Biggest Loser and Extreme Weight Loss and such... those people are being put through hours and hours of exercise on incredibly small amounts of food, and though they have obviously excellent "results," I am not at all convinced it's healthy.
    You rock!
