Weekly Weigh-In: Floored
This week's Weekly Weigh-In post is going to be short and sweet because, well, I'm feeling rather lousy. Not awful, just I know I'm trying to come down with something -- running a low-grade fever for three days, coughing, and feeling achy -- and I'm doing my best to fight it off: lots of vitamin C and an early bedtime tonight (I'm writing this post Monday night).
I hope you will share you weigh-in results this week, either via MckLinky or in the comments.
I was floored by this week's weigh-in. You may recall that I pretty much thought last week's 3.2 lb. loss was a fluke because I'd been sick last Sunday night (probably due to the extremely fat-filled, greasy meal I ate earlier that evening). I was simply hoping to maintain that loss this week. Imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning and had lost an additional 3.4 lbs.!! I got off the scale and stepped back on, just to make sure. Yep, same reading both times.
That puts me at 38 lbs. lost...only 2 lbs. away from 40 lbs, a bit of a benchmark for me since that's the number I never could quite get to the last time I lost a significant amount of weight. I'll feel much better -- much more secure in the fact that I really can do this -- once I hit 40 lbs. lost. I'm sincerely hoping that's next week. Really, I'm hoping it's two-point-anything because 2 lbs. puts me at 40 lbs. lost, but anything more than that puts me in the 170's...a place I haven't been in a long, long time.
What about you? How'd you do this week?
