Welcome to another edition of Weigh In Wednesday. Today's program is brought to you by the number.... 176.4. Ugh.
I am up one pound from last week. My weight is going in the WRONG DIRECTION!
A part of this could be that Aunt Flo is due to arrive any day now, so perhaps I am retaining some water weight. It could also be that Mr. McMuffintop has been a bad influence on me (but I know I can't blame him, the things I put in my mouth are MY choice). The past week wasn't perfect, but despite the odd indulgence, I kept a close count of calories and did not exceed my daily allowance. I exercised my ass off (unfortunately NOT literally), but perhaps not enough. I have been managing to squeeze in 2 work outs most days but the past week I have only been working out once per day.
In my weight-loss history, a plateau always seems to occur right around now (when I hit the 175 lb range). My weight hovers there for a good month before I see it begin to drop more. That is, as long as I don't give up before the month passes.
Mr. McMuffintop leaves for work travel again next week so it will be an opportunity to kick myself back into high gear. I need to work on staying more disciplined while he is around though. While Mr.McMuffintop is verbally very supportive of my efforts, his actions do not always match his words.
A few weeks ago I had made a mini-goal to be back at the weight I was when I met Mr. McMuffintop (165 lbs) on the anniversary of the day we met (at the end of March). That gives me one month to lose 11 lbs. Which means that I really shouldn't have baked that loaf of banana bread today.....
