My First Weigh-In Post FitBloggin
Previous Weight — 269.6 lbs (on 9.4.2012)
Current Weight — 269.0 lbs
Change In Weight — -0.6 lbs
I’m still 4 pounds shy of my 265 pounds goal for FitBloggin but I’ll take the progress I’ve seen. I made progress from last weigh-in and better yet, I didn’t gain after I traveled. I’m sure a lot of you know what I’m talking about. I almost always gain something after taking a trip. Usually it’s from eating out so much, darn all the sodium. Plus bad choices just seem easier to make when your far from home. Fortunately for me on this trip I had 1–3 workouts per day and a conference full of people who cared about the food so that certainly helped to keep me on track.
One thing I was planning on doing this October, call me crazy, but I was planning on weighing in daily. I was thinking maybe I’d post that either throughout the week or on my usual weekend weigh-in day. I’m not doing this to show how numbers are king (they’re not) nor am I doing it to stay accountable. I was thinking of doing it to show how dramatically the scale can swing throughout a week, or even between weeks, and how if you let the insane scale control you then your self confidence can and will be destroyed.
What do you think? Would this interest anyone?
Not to juxtapose a “scale doesn’t matter” message with a “scale goal” one but in case you’re wondering, I’m still shooting for my end of year goal to be at 240 pounds by 1/1/2013. To reach that goal over the holidays I’m planning a few interesting things that I’m hoping to share next week.
In case you’re wondering, my success rate for not gaining weight over the holidays is 0 for 12 years and counting so this should be interesting.
