Aw, Shucks is right! I'll tell you why...after the long weekend, against my better judgement, I took a sneak peek at the scales yesterday morning. You know, just to see what the weekend's festivities had wrought. I was totally delighted! I was down 1.2#. No good ever comes of sneak peeks, let me tell you. This morning, which of course, is Weigh In Wednesday, I was down only the .2# portion of the event. DAMN! Now if I subscribed to Patty's theory and believed the 3 day rule, I'd say that Sunday's sins had caught up with me....but I was very good on Sat., Sun., and Mon. It was Tuesday that did me in. I did some cardio on the bike, in spite of my bad knee. (I tried to upload the image of the bike readout, but kept getting an "internal error" sign.) At any rate, I did 30 min. on the bike, but I'm not sure it was really cardio minutes, as my pace was less that sterling. Hopefully, the PC lets me count it!!
Following my brilliant start to the day, I continued to be very good. Lots of water, writing in my food journal, I was doing just fine. Then the torrential downpours began, both outside, and things into my mouth. Mindless eating at its finest. With each "goof up", I asked myself why? And since answering yourself is a sign of mental weakness, I did not reply to that question. I simply picked up something else to eat. Now, none of the foods I ate were bad for me, there was fruit, whole grain English muffins, asparagus (leftovers), stuff like that. I just ate way, way too much of each and every item. So I kinda suspected today's weigh in wasn't going to be pretty, and therefore, I'm ok with just a .2# loss. After all, a loss is a loss is a loss, right? Had I held on to that 1.2# loss, I'd have cracked my first barrier goal.
That brings me to another dilemma. I have thus far refused to publish my starting weight and my goal weight, and all the mini-goals I have in between. I am just too damned chicken. Mostly because my kids read my blog, as do a few friends. If I could keep the info confidential, like just between my millions of readers and myself, I'd be ok. At what point do I get over this? I'm certainly not ready to do it yet. The best I can do for now is say that I'm under 250 and above 200. That took all I had to type those numbers. Baby steps, I guess, and at least I'm 12.4# less than I was when I began this journey.
