Weigh-in Wednesday: SDoS Wk 3

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansI didn't lose this week. I gained. It's only 0.4, but it's amazing how much of a set-back that is in terms of TIME-SENSITIVE goals!!

I was a little disappointed that I hadn't at least stayed the same, especially since I know I did well with portion control and allowing my stomach to growl between meals. Despite it being that T.O.M., I did none of the frantic gorging that often seems to accompany that week. In fact, I believe I snacked in the evening just ONCE this last week!!! Pretty proud of that, actually.

But I've also been sick for the last week and a half. Which explains not really caring WHAT I ate, even if I controlled my portions and snacking impulses relatively well. It also explains the lack of exercise ~ normal breathing alone has been challenging enough! I did mow lawn twice ~ which amounts to a combined total of 3.5 hours of pushing a mower ~ and go for one or two 2-mile walks. So maybe I didn't do too badly in that area either!

So I'm not too unhappy with the little gain, mostly because I know it didn't come from a lack of self-control for a change!! But it is going to make my goal for this particular challenge a little more, well...

...challenging!

thats great that you know its not because of anything you did...that is a huge statement!

Keep at it, the scale will change, mine took a few weeks thought I needed a new scale!

sounds like you did well given your circumstances. now get well and keep up these same good habits (snacking randomly can be killer!)

Don't worry about that little extra water! You did great last week and mowing the lawn is hard work!

3.5 hours of pushing a mower? Dang!
Sounds like you did a lot of stuff right last week - you should see a loss next week for sure!

Great job sticking to portion control and doing what you know works! It will be great to see that water go away next week!

You can do it. I always go up with my TOM and then lose it. It is also hard being sick.
