This morning I am down another pound, at 151. Whoo Hoo! I had to be pretty strict with the eating since I haven’t been able to exercise as much with the hurt back (I think I should buy stock in Big Red gum lol.) I think I may be able to reach my goal of 150 before my physical on the 19th.
This week I am weighing in on…weighing in! How often do you weigh yourself? I never did before I began this journey. Now that I am trying to lose, I weigh almost every day. Just morbid curiosity I think (or wishful thinking lol.) I’ve heard that you should only weigh yourself once a week or so since weight fluctuates so much and then I’ve heard where you should weigh yourself every day in order to catch any weight gain right away. There is an expert for every opinion.
Our scale is old. I had a coupon for $10 off a new scale so I splurged a whole $9.99 on a new one. It keeps track of two different weights and tells you if you’ve gained or lost. Of course there is a problem. New scale weighs me in at at least 2 pounds less than old scale (149 vs 151.) I had everyone in the house test it as well (Katy the cat, btw, is NOT all fluff and weighs 12 pounds!) I don’t know what to do! Dh says use the new scale but I don’t trust it. He asked what I weighed at the dr office last week and I said it said 154 with clothes and boots on. “Well, the military allows you 5 pounds for clothes so there you go.” “I wasn’t wearing combat boots, hon.” The confusion continues.
Please visit Kris at Eclipsed for more weekly weigh-ins. Next week…weighing in on diet cat food. ;)
