I keep my weekly stats and thoughts on this page, but I wanted to check in for accountability since it is Wednesday – weigh-in day. And because this is the final week until mid-program stats (always a little scary!).
Ugh – why did I choose Wednesdays?????
By Friday, I’m usually down to an even 141.0 or even lower before eating like a fool on the weekend. Fridays are great days for me to weigh-in, but Wednesdays are more “real,” because Monday and Tuesday are “correction days” from the weekend and I’m at a pretty stable weight by Wednesdays. By Friday, I’m at a low that is going to be ruined by the weekend, so why bother even thinking it’s a real weight, you know?
This current week (starting today) is week 6 – half way through this 12 weeks of maintenance. I’m happy to say that I have actually lost weight, but not a lot so I still think I’m maintaining. I am hoping to be an even 141 next Wednesday which would put me at an even 2 pound loss for the first 6 weeks (I started at 143 and am 141.2 right now). This should be do-able since we’re not traveling this weekend for the first time in 4 weeks! I better see 141.0 on Wednesday – you all know my goal now and can feel free to heckle me next week if I don’t meet it.
Body fat has stayed pretty darned constant – started at 22.8 and am at 22.9 today. That is such a flakey thing – depends on what you ate, drank, etc. the night before and also the time of day that you exercised. I don’t get too bent out of shape over this number – as long as it stays under 24% each Wednesday. I just don’t think I’ll be losing much fat even though there is still plenty to lose (if you saw me n*ked, you’d agree – trust me!). I’d have to really rock the boat to amp up fat loss (I am thinking of rocking the boat the second 6 weeks, but we shall see!!!).
I will post pics and measurements next week, but I just had to put this out there since I have one final week before mid-program stats AND I can have a clean eating weekend ahead of me if I choose to.
I’m choosing to.
