Weigh-in Wednesday: SDoS Wk 6

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansWow, I can't believe we're at week SIX of this challenge already!! Partly because, where has the time gone??!! And partly because, dang it, my primary AND secondary goals for this challenge are now out of reach!!

Well, I'm still moving in a downward trend, so I guess I can't really complain. It's only 0.2 this week, but that's still FORWARD PROGRESS, despite the pace. At least I'm not reversing!

My in-laws were out from Thursday evening till Sunday afternoon and that always presents eating challenges. Not only do I cook differently when we've got company (we almost never have dessert after supper, but when there's company, we almost always do!), but invariably when the in-laws visit, there's treats. This time it was watermelon with rollkuchen a few times (which are bad enough by themselves, but we usually dip them in syrup!!), and a dozen Timmie's donuts, BOTH of which I have trouble controlling myself around!!

But, I also got in a fair bit more exercise this past week than I have in a long time.
  • Thursday: mowed through some seriously overgrown lawn for a good two hours in the sweltering mid-afternoon heat!
  • Saturday: went for a 2-mile walk with my father-in-law in the evening
  • Sunday: went for a 2-mile jog/walk after the in-laws left in the afternoon
  • Monday: mowed lawn for 2-1/2 hours (fortunately, it was a cloudy, breezy day this time!)
So that's roughly TWENTY MILES of exercise!

Yet I still only lost 0.2 lbs. Hmmmmm.

I guess THAT means....

...I definitely ate more than I should have!

Eat watermelon

You moved in the right direction - that's great! And all that exercise. Two hours mowing? Holy schnikes, is your lawn ginormous? I'm jealous, not of the mowing, but of the massive lawn!

My parents were here as well. I know they don't make it hard, but I seem to make it hard on myself wanting to make treats for them. A loss is still a loss, so way to go on that! And how big is your yard? Mowing twice in five days, that is crazy!

having the loss tells me you still moved more than you ate :) WTG!!! keep going in that direction!

I think it's great that you had company, indulged, and still lost! That's a victory in my book!!

Visitors and traveling are definitely challenges... Good for you for remaining in the negative - Every loss is a loss! You will do great next week!
