Starting Weight: 330 pounds
Weight Last Week: 305.3 pounds
This week’s weigh-in: 306 pounds
Well, drat! There is just not much to say about that. I hate that I gained.
BUT, there were a couple of mitigating factors. Not excuses though. The first was that my batteries went out on my scale as soon as I stepped off of it. So I am hoping maybe it was in the process of dying and was not entirely accurate. The Chick Magnet tried to weigh-in and was unable to just a few minutes later.
The second factor would be every woman’s favorite monthly visitor. Just a forewarning, for any guys who happen to read this blog (all two of you ), I plan on doing a post on this soon.
Each month, for the last three months, every time I have had a weigh-in on the same week as I have had my period, I have had very poor results on the scale. I know there is a connection. I just want to do some more research so that I can beat Aunt Flo at her own game.
At any rate, I felt like I worked really hard last week so I was quite disappointed with the results on the scale. I know the scale isn’t everything but when you weigh as much as I do it really needs to be going down every week.
However, I did have progress in other areas last week. There is hope for me yet.
Some of my non-scale victories (NSV) this week include:
- Keeping up with September’s challenge. I can tell I am getting stronger.
- Got my wedding ring off! Not that I was in a big hurry to do so but the fact that I am ABLE to is a big deal.
- My sister has been losing some weight too and gave me some of her old clothes. They were mostly size 18s and I thought there was no way I would fit into any yet. But for our date night the other night I tried on one of the shirts, an 18/20, and it fit! And I looked quite cute if I do say so myself. I should have taken a picture for you.
- After wearing my shirt for date night, I wore it to church on Sunday and had at least 5 people tell me how great I looked. There is nothing more motivating!
Sorry, there is no Chick Magnet update this week since he wasn’t able to weigh-in. We are hoping to get a new scale this week since we have to change our batteries in our current one about every other week. That’s what I get for buying a fancy shmancy scale.
That’s the truth.
