Had It Backward...

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

So during the Pound-A-Thon Challenge, I decided I would weigh myself if certain conditions were met. They were that I had to stay in my calorie range and stay in my sodium range, among other things.

I didn't weigh very often.

If I stayed in calorie range, I was eating chili or spaghetti sauce (high in sodium). If I stayed in my sodium range, I ate too much.

And then I weighed myself today after my camping trip today. YIKES. I don't even want to tell you!

Well, I'm re-committed now that the 5% is starting back up, and I realized that I had it all wrong. I wanted to weigh myself when I thought I would post a loss, but I should have weighed myself when I thought I would post a GAIN. So now, I will weigh myself if those conditions are NOT met.

Today, I'm in-range, but hey, chili. So I'll weigh myself tomorrow. I hope it is a little better than this morning.

    I weigh myself quite often but sometimes I wish I didn't because it gets a bit depressing when the number is going the wrong way. Cheers me up no end when it goes the right way but I'm on a bit of a roller coaster with weight at the moment so it's all over the place.
