Week 40: Sad Trombone

Share it Please
Current Weight:  217.2
+/-  this week:  +1.6
+/- this round:   -32.6
+/- total:    -49.8
Short Term Goal:  213.5 (Halfway there - 50% of final goal)

Avg weekly loss needed to reach birthday goal of 200 lbs by age 32: 1.7 lbs/wk

Well, that crap happened.  Disappointing.  I got a lot of activity points last week.  BUT, I also spread my extra points out throughout the week and that seems to be less effective for me than having one day where I sort of splurge.  Also, I know a few ounces of it was because of the switch to fall clothing instead of getting weighed in the lightest summery clothing I could find.  It's a bit scary because the weekly loss I need went up and it's inched towards 2 lbs a week, which seems less do-able.  Oh well, I'll still try. 

Today another Mom on the playground mentioned that I looked like I'd lost weight and it was nice to have that acknowledgement.  I have lost over 30 pounds since the beginning of last school year, and almost no one has said anything as far as the people I see at the bus stop every day.  Anyhow, it always feels good when someone notices, you know?

This week I am going to be able to get some exercise, and I am going to try to stay under points and think about what I'm eating and not eat late at night.  We'll see what happens.
