Well either Monday was a fluke or today is...because I am up 1.2 from where I was on Monday. I think it may be today because I did eat lunch a lot later than usual, and it was heavier than usual too. We went out to lunch because a coworker of mine is leaving for a new job. We went to Fridays and I had a salad, but I wasnt eating until almost 130, which is an hour later than usual.
In any case, Im not going to dwell on it..I am still down 2 pounds from last week's weigh in, 176.4! Last week was great in that I got to the 30 pounds lost checkpoint, and made my mini goal of 30 pounds lost by the 19th.
I wanted to explain for a minue how I do these challenges (both this one and the Healthy You Challenge). I dont base my weigh in off of a week such as Sun-Sat. I base it off my weight the same day the previous week. So last week on Wed. I weighed 178.4 and I compare my current weight to that weeks weight and list my loss as the difference. For the Healthy You Challenge, I do the same thing. I dont weigh in on Tuesdays, so I base my weight on my Monday weigh in. I do keep track of my weight in my food diary, so I am able to see what a "true" week is, which for me is Friday-Thurs. Im sure everyone figures out their losses differently, but thats just how I do mine for these challenges.
So while I had a crappy day and seeing I am up over a pound didnt help at all, I am ok with this because I still have lost 30 pounds, and I am fairly certain (as I have stayed on plan), that either I am up today because of what I ate for lunch, or something was up with my weigh in on Monday.
