Week 4: Weigh In

So I’m not super psyched about this weigh in. I could tell on Friday that I wasn’t going to see a loss this week. And it’s not because I’ve done anything wrong. My eating was great, the most calories I ate in a day was 1520, and that was a day when I ran 3 miles. I exercised more than last week. It was a good week. Until I got my period on Friday. I get so bloated and have horrible cramps for days whenever my monthly visitor shows up. I’m still in the midst of it, so I knew my weigh in would suck. I would have been fine with losing nothing, but of course, I gained a pound. Whatever. I’m at 197.5. I’m sure next Monday I’ll see a substantial loss since all of this water weight will be gone, but I don’t have to be happy about it right now.

So there you go. My stupid scale.

Anyways… I remember saying something about taking “progress pictures” every four weeks. It’s been four weeks, but I don’t feel like I’ve made much progress. Yes, I’m cranky. I’ll get over it. I took pictures, because I know I would regret it if I didn’t. I regret not taking any at my highest weight because I’m about 30lbs down from that and being able to see the difference would be really motivating. So I want to be accountable and keep my word.

Yuck. Just a note… I picked those clothes because they’re tight and I’ll be able to easily see progress when I take pictures with them in the future. Not because I think they look good or flattering. I’m not that deluded. Lol. I bought that t-shirt a couple of years ago and have maybe worn it once because it never fit. I like it though. And the shorts are my gym shorts from middle school.

So there you go… my weigh in. I guess the upside of weighing in on Mondays is that they already suck, so a bad weigh in doesn’t ruin a good day. Here’s hoping the rest of the week is better! 🙂

I just keep off the scale during that time of the month. I know I gain about 4 pounds during, so I just stay away until a few days after it stops. that way I don’t get dissipointed with what I see on the scale! You’re looking great, keep it up! 🙂

Aww, thanks! 🙂 It would definitely be wise for me to stay off the scale, but I have such a hard time skipping a weigh in. I probably will next time if I feel as bloated.

Dude: you’re wearing shorts from MIDDLE SCHOOL. I doubt I could get middle school shorts on ONE leg! lol 😉

Sorry Aunt Flo’s messing with you – it will even out next week.

Lol yeah I was kinda psyched that they fit. I wasn’t super small or anything in middle school, but I was probably around 150-160ish around the time I wore those. They are pretty stretchy though.

Aunt Flo is a beyatch… thanks for your comment! Definitely made me feel better about the crappy weigh in 🙂

That’s a good way to look at weighing in on Mondays. It IS the worst day of the week.

A bad weigh-in during TOM will only mean GREAT things after that evil friend leaves for a month. Keep it up!

It’s funny… I’ve been weighing in on Mondays for a very long time, but I only thought of that this past Monday.

I really hope it will mean great things. Thanks for the comment 🙂
