So Much For That

I was so busy with the site makeover last week, I really didn’t talk too much about the topic at hand. If you remember from two weeks ago (and I hope you don’t, because really, my babbling isn’t worth you wasting precious neurons on) I had just broken the last barrier: 197.5.

That was a special milestone for me because after weeks of walking along the borders of Onederland, finally getting below this point felt like I was at last safe from Relapseville.

The subsequent week only continued the goodness. Check out the chart for that week. Except for that very last day (and the reason I’m glad I went to “weight averaging” when I did) this was awesome. 195.5 was a new low and I hit it two days in a row.

So imagine my shock on that last day when I was 198. Sort of ruins that perfect week, don’t it? But that’s okay, right? It’s just one day, right? No need to panic, right? I was doing well, I’m sure I’ll get right back on track, right?


Week 38
Starting Weight 224.0
Current Weight 198.1
Change from Last Week +1.5
Lost So Far 25.9

So what happened? Well, let’s see… average daily caloric intake for the good week: 1800. Average daily caloric intake for the bad week: nearly 2200. Another weight loss mystery solved! Hopefully things will go better this week, but I don’t know.

Two boxes of Golden Grahams just showed up out of nowhere.

I am discovering the best way to avoid those “bad days/bad weeks” is to make sure that when I visit “nowhere” (that place where the boxes of Golden Grahams came from)I don’t buy anything remotely interesting to snack upon.

I realize that might be difficult with kids still in the house (if you DO try that be sure to be thinking who will play the role of evil you in the Made for TV movie sure to result).

Although it has resulted in some pretty disgusting experiments in “nontraditional” snack food combinations. Nuff said.

I’m so glad you continue to provide insightful information in regards to weight loss: 1800 vs. 2200 = gain. I forget about that stuff sometimes and often wonder why I’m “stuck.” Even though you didn’t get the results YOU wanted, this blog was a great reminder for me.

Just wanted to say that I appreciate your writing and your struggles. But as I’ve read through your book tour this past week, you’re doing it – a little at a time.

You are my hero…or at least a mentor 🙂 I mean, I don’t even KNOW if you wear underwear on the outside of your pants.

Those weeks of “Holy crap how did all those calories get into my diet” come to all of us trying desperately to lose weight. Just jump back on the diet wagon and keep on going and you will eventually get there.
I hope that this week has been a better week for you.
