I am beginning to notice a trend here. It may be too early to tell, but it seems that my scale has decided that a number isn’t worth giving if you can’t give it two weeks in a row. Last week, my weight was 212 as well. The two weeks prior it was 213.
If the next two weeks end up being 211 then there will definitely be some sort of spooky trend going on.
Not that I’m actually complaining. The weight is going down. Not as fast as I would like, but then when does it ever. At this time of year, I am pretty happy as long as it isn’t a gain.
And honestly, expecting a loss today would be a bit of a surprise. While I put in a great deal of effort this week in the walking and such, yesterday was the retail Battle Royale.
eMy babydoll and I took the last of our holiday shopping lists to the stores and took advantage of as many veteran’s day sales as possible. I think we actually managed to knock out the last of our gift list actually. I’m sure there will be a last minute ‘I can’t believe we forgot…’ foray, but at the moment all the names have been checked off the list. Soon we will start filtering them into the postal system, but that is a next week sort of project. And a lot of our list was orderd on line and has already arrived and been sent on. So we are actually pretty good on that score.
I think we ended up with a couple of extra items when we went shopping as well. I know my babydoll picked up something and then had to engage in a battle of wills with an older woman who decided she wanted the item as well. I’m not certain if he bought it because it was on the list or because he picked it up to look at and reached his breaking point when the woman came at him. I was on the other side of the store and only witnessed it from afar. At that point he was pretty much done with shopping so it could be either.
At that point we just went through the checkout line and called it a day.
We also called it a good day for barbeque. I’ll admit, I over ate. In fact i woke up still feeling fairly full so I was just happy that I didn’t actually gain anything. So perhaps the scale staying the same this week is my own fault and not part of a larger trend. we shall have to wait for next week to find out.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 212.0 lbs
This week’s weight: 212.0 lbs
Lost this week: 0.0 lbs
Lost thus far: 34.0 lbs
And so into Friday we go, tra, la, la la, la. I can say that despite being Friday and our usual larger meal, I think that due to yesterday’s barbeque feast, tonight might be a lighter meal.
