The Numbers- wks 4 & 5

Monday, December 14, 2009

So it's been 2 wks since I've posted my numbers. Overall, I'm happy with my progress, but last week was a nightmare! Especially after a phenomenal result the week before.

2 wks ago I kicked the scales butt...

Do you see that! I lost 5.6 lbs! In one week. That's the most ever!

...but the higher they climb the harder they fall

A measly .2 lbs last week! I mean .2 lbs doesn't even really count. So I'm basically flat! It's not like I wasn't working my tale off either. I was mostly in calorie range and worked out 6 of the 7 days. And my weight was all over the freakin place! Go figure. I secretly think my body can read the scale too. It knows the 230's are right around the corner & it's holding onto 240 for all it's worth! :)

So the deficit thing has been really off the last two weeks. I shouldn't have lost nearly 6 lbs two wks ago & should have dropped a few this past wk. If I look at them in aggregate the forecast is dead on (5.7 projected vs 5.8 actual), so I guess I can't complain too much.

The funny thing is that I'm really not that upset about not losing last week (despite my serious scale addiction & measuring my self worth by what the dang thing says). I feel good about what I ate & really great about how much I'm moving my body. I measured my waist & hips for my last blog (I normally only measure myself monthly) & I've lost almost an inch off my waist & 1/2 inch off my hips since 12/1!!! So there's been some progress even if the numbers don't exactly work out.

No loss & feeling good??? Sounds so wrong. I don't care. I'm so grateful for finding the deficit concept, I'm glad every single day that Spark People exists, & I'm glad that I've decided to change my life!
