Weekly Loss: 1.5 lbs
Total Loss: 12.6 lbs
And the downward trend continues. Yay.
I’m fibbing slightly. This is yesterday’s number because I fell in a vat of sodium. But I’m glad I WI daily and track obsessively because I know that this morning’s number isn’t real weight. My numbers are slightly out of sync with LoseIt because I started that after I started the first DietBet, but I LOVE DietBet’s weekly reports. I just spent an unholy amount dumping them into excel and analyzing my habits
Stay away from the sodium. OK, that’s not a lesson learned. . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: March 3

A loss is a loss. Yeah, I’ll parrot the official loss of any loss is a good thing, but this week has been bizarre. The scale has been all over the place for two reasons: a little too much eating out and a touch of the stomach flu. Plus, the cold is finally? gone and I have my appetite back.
I made good choices while eating out but holy crap, restaurant food is salty. I am still tracking (down to the 5 chips I ate at the restaurant) so I know the . . . → Keep Going: Weigh In: February 24
I like “wench” better than “wh0re” but when it comes to the scale, both are true for me.
I can weigh myself daily and it doesn’t make me (too) crazy. I’ll even weigh myself multiple times. I just need to know where I am. Non-scale cues don’t work for me especially since I have yet to learn to properly use a measuring tape. Yes, I’m special at times.
Weighed myself this morning knowing it would be up because a) couldn’t bend my fingers and b) overnight cankles. Hi. Crazy salt in Knorr Rice Sides buffalo chicken, anyone? Saw . . . → Keep Going: Confession: Scale Wench
last week was a wonderful and well-earned vacation. I half ass tracked and got the WI I earned from doing so. Luckily it was partially salt/water as I’m now back down to a gain of only .5 which makes more sense. I knew I’d over eaten and under tracked, but I didn’t think it was nearly 3lbs worth of actual fat. Knew I hadn’t been drinking nearly enough and am now back into my routine which will help.
Also wouldn’t change a bite of what I ate. Chocolate peanut butter brownie, homemade guacamole and chips and a local ice-cream place . . . → Keep Going: back on track
Had another gain this week and I’m not totally surprised because a) chocolate truffle dessert and peanut butter cup flurry and b) holy swollen hands. It’s “B” that bothers me the most because I have no idea what did it. Since IDing my sodium culprit a couple of weeks ago I have been very careful about labels, but there’s something hiding somewhere.
I missed my WI on Tuesday because I was traveling and when I weighed in on Wednesday I knew I’d be up in part due to a sodium bomb of a non-Subway sub for dinner on the bus . . . → Keep Going: Sodium, I hate you
I CANNOT believe I’ve lost 25 lbs on WW. I lost a chunk of weight my freshman year in college but I don’t remember what the number was. Know I’m not down as low as I was then because I was wearing a size 10. More on that weight loss in another post.
and this time in a good way. I had no business losing 3.2 this week. It’s TOM, among other things. If nothing else, it proves that my chart (updated below) shows that whether or not I eat my weeklies has no bearing on my weight loss. I’m . . . → Keep Going: I don’t understand the scale
1,830 mg in a Subway foot long turkey sandwich?!?!? Holy shit.
In addition to the giant pretzel I had at the Yankee game on Sunday I had Subway for dinner Sunday and linner/dunch on Monday. No wonder I was retaining water. I won’t give up the sandwiches because I like them too much, but clearly not for Sunday, Monday any more.
Either that or I move my WI day because they’re a weekend staple for me.
A follow up from this post, I’ve updated the chart with this week’s loss. The more I think about it, the more my weight loss seems to be tied with whether or not I was OP on the night before WI. The last two weeks I haven’t been, and I wonder if that’s why the weight loss is less – the food still in my stomach?
I tend to wake up with sausage fingers no matter how much I drink. Ugh. Hoping to get a better control on my weekends. Yes I know 1.0lb is normal, no, I’m . . . → Keep Going: APs, WPs and Weight Loss
