Weigh In: February 10

– I had a really good post, and then FireFox ate it :-(

I was going to say I stole this format from Jess, but I won’t put my weight on the internet (despite, you know, the fact that I did before) so I’ve modified it.

Weekly Loss: 3.0 lbs

Total Loss: 8.8 lbs

I’m a daily weigher/scale peeker. Fluctuations don’t bother me — but what has bothered me with the scale I bought this fall is that it doesn’t fluctuate.  Oddly, that makes me not trust it. Bizarre. So I was peeking during the week and the scale wasn’t doing what it was supposed* to. I soon realized that was because a visitor was due.

Despite some poor food choices and thanks to said visitor taking leave, nice loss. I know I won’t get 3.0 lb losses each week – or maybe not any week – but I’ll take it while it lasts and I will re-learn that any loss is a good ones. For the first time since my initial run, I really feel like my brain, heart and stomach are in the right place. Game on.

Speaking of game. I hit the DietBet 4%! It doesn’t “count” until 25 Feb final weigh but there is no excuse not to collect my winnings and be ready for the next month.

*Yes, I know our bodies aren’t optimally tuned machines but I’m silly enough to want my body to do what it does when I eat the same thing day in and day out.
