Lent, Day 6: Dropping Off the Scale

Oooo-kay.  While I am certainly happy to have technically achieved my second 10% goal as of today, I am (as previously stated) not quite sure whether or not to trust this.  I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but two five-pound losses in as many weeks is pretty unprecedented, and (as previously stated) potentially unhealthy.

So … I guess I brace myself for what Rachel said — that it might not last.  Or, at the very least, that I might actually gain a pound or two back this week.  I certainly intend to do a better job of eating right this week, and of drinking enough water, so we’ll see what happens.

I did make a concerted effort to kind of stick to the upper end of my food goal today, too.  It’s a Down Day, so I try to stay under 6 points or so, but today I let myself eat a little more than I normally would.  I also made it a point to get a full serving of quinoa in, at the very least.  Protein is important.

Weight Check, Week…whatever.

I have no idea how to establish the weeks at this point. 😉  I guess this would technically be week 0.5 of Lent, since I’ve only been doing the Lent thing since Wednesday.

Starting Weight Overall:  241 (Wii Fit), 245 (Bathroom Scale)

Last Week: 200.9 (Wii Fit), 202.0 (Bathroom Scale)

This week: 194.9 (Wii Fit), 196.6 (Bathroom Scale)

Okay, so now EVERYTHING is yelling at me.  I thought the Wii Fit was going to require medical attention, it was so upset. “You have reached your goal much faster than anticipated!  This can lead to WEIGHT REBOUND!!!  Doom Gloom Ooooh!”

I haven’t gone to Weight Watchers yet, but I know that won’t be pretty either.  And frankly, I’m not feeling as flip about that as I probably sound.  I’m glad to have weighed in so low, but this is clearly the result of my less-than-stellar appetite of the past week, and I really do think Weight Rebound or whatever could be an issue if I’m not careful. :/
