Weigh In #19

I reaaaaallllly didn't want to weigh in today. I'll admit it, I've been a bad girl the last few days and have indulged in some foods that I shouldn't have. Actually, for most of last week I found it really difficult to keep my eating under control. It wasn't all "bad" foods, just too much in general. And I didn't get in an extra run this weekend like I'd been planning either. By the time I had the chance to do it on Saturday, it was 33 degrees (Celsius) and waaaaaaay to hot.

So I think I'm down 0.2. Way better than a gain! My scale was being just plain cruel to me though as when I first weighed myself prior to my shower, it was telling me 222.6, three times in a row! I KNEW there was no way that was accurate. By the time I was done my shower and did my hair, I had somehow magically "gained" and was back up at 227. LOL Same floor, same spot, same foot position. I'm going with the higher number, just to be safe. As much as I'd LOVE to claim the lower number as that would take me over the awesome 40lb mark, I'd just be setting myself up for disapointment for the rest of the week when the scale is more normal.

As far as activity goes, I've had a hard time just DOING IT. My mom literally had to push me out the door this morning to go for my run (and I'm SO thankful she did). I knew I just had to get going and would be good once I did. It was the most beautiful weather for running so while pushing baby K in the jogging stroller, we ran for a total of 6.94 km! My pace is slow and steady .. we ran for 56 minutes. I feel so much better now!

Way to go on maintaining a loss on a difficult week!

My rule is to take the first weight that shows up. Somestimes I'll weigh again, just to be sure, but it's almost always the same. I figure I have no intention of staying at any of these numbers, so I'll just record them and move on. :)

have a great week!

happy to hear that you had a loss. you are lucky to still be in the stage where you can be a little lax and still lose. for me, if I even look at a cookie, the scale is punishing me! we all go through periods like that, where we dont feel like exercising or we are consumed by cravings. it happens, so now just move on and start fresh this week. you had your time, now get back into it.

It is so much better when you do it and didn't feel like it. It's like the workout is that much better. Great job!

Bad scale! tsk,tsk!

You're welcome to join the club...I'm pretty sure we all take up residence in it at some's just so frustrating to gain 3 pounds to have to lose them again because I can gain 3 pounds in a week and then it takes me 3 to get rid of them...I'd rather be working on a different set of 3 pouns...I'm just hoping that drinking water (which I was lax about last week) and TOM passing will get rid of those unwanted visitors....

I'm so proud of you for running, and not just running, but for almost an hour??? That is insane!

Have a great week!

I hear you on the running. I managed to do 2 this week and hope it means my leg is getting better.

I usually go with a couple of weigh-ins and pick the one that comes up most. Is your scale in the bathroom because if so, the humidity would definitely affect it.

Here's hoping that you have a great day!

Cammy, makes an excellent point. I also take the first one and don't second guess it because hopefully I won't be staying there. Let me rephrase that, I will not be staying there.

Glad to hear you had a loss after a less than perfect week.
