Weigh-in Wednesday - The Yo-Yo edition
Its weigh in time again!
Okay so maybe I'm not that excited about it. I did lapse this weekend into some dessert medication for my cranky, moody soul.
I also had a race this weekend - if you haven't read all about it check out the full race report here (with pictures)!
Now on to the nitty gritty.
Challenge starting weight: 125.4
Goal weight: 120
Last week: 123.6
This week: 125.0
Sorry to the Weight Loss Warriors, I'm logging a gain of 1.4 pounds this week :( Although I promise (as I do every week I gain) to make it up next week. I've even got an Easter-proof plan in place.
At this point I'm just frustrated with the constant yo-yo. As you can see from my numbers I've been all over the place this challenge. I've been as high was 127 (two weeks ago) and as low as 123 (last week). I need to step back and really evaluate what's going on.
Am I just sick of working at losing? Is my body happy with where it is? Am I sabatoging myself - when I finally have a loss allowing myself to fall back into old behaviors?
As far as my body reaching its happy point, I'm not sure. I still have plenty of fat left to lose on my legs, but certainly not on my upper body. During our last marathon training walk, my friend/coworker/training partner said that how much I have to lose depends on where my body wants to take it. If its done taking from up top then I could still stand to lose a little, but if it still insists on taking off the top then I run the risk of looking too skinny (from the waist up at least).
We've got a few more weeks left on the challenge I need to try to keep my focus until then. After that, I might need to re-evaluate where I am and where I want to be. For now I've made a commitment and need to do all I can to make sure that the Weight Loss Warriors keep the top spot!!
Since these first few weeks of triathlon training actually have me doing less activity then I'm use to, I think I'm going to adjust my calories down to try and compensate. Then as the program gets more intense I'll add calories back.
Hopefully you did better this week than I did. If not, we'll both make it up next week. So go weigh in already and then post your results over at the Sisterhood.
