My chosen weigh-in day is Sunday for two reasons: 1) it's the start of a new week and 2) to dissuade me from having a food fest blowout all weekend. Because the 4th of July is on a Saturday this year, I thought about weighing in Saturday morning rather than Sunday. It wasn't because I wanted to eat tons and tons, but I knew that we would be having baked potato salad and burgers. I was worried the food and increased sodium would cause me a gain. I'm not going to lie, it took me a while to make the decision. I really wanted to have a nice time on the 4th without worrying about food. In the end, I decided not to step on the scale Saturday. I felt like I would be cheating myself if I weighed in early so I didn't. Still, I thought about weighing to see what the number was so I would know just how careful I should be, but I didn't do that either. Instead, I went on with my day, enjoyed myself , tried to be careful, but still exceeded my daily calorie limit by over 500 calories (brownies are my weakness). It wasn't a blowout and the scale reported a three pound loss for the week. I was surprised to have a nice loss for two weeks in a row, but I won't be complaining anytime soon either. This morning I weighed 380 and am now looking forward to being in the 370's soon.
This has been a relaxing three day weekend and I enjoyed myself immensely. I'm feeling tired and will close for now. How was your weekend? Did you overeat or stay the course?
Thanks for stopping by,
