Now, it’s really too bad that my last post was about using profanity, because I really have some words for my body.
Welcome to my weekly weigh-in post.
Weighed this morning, mind you it was at 6:30 am, because I was up when Drew left for his competition. I AM EXACTLY THE SAME AS I WAS LAST WEEK. And, just to make me feel better, I checked my body fat % AND IT WENT UP. Not a percentage, THREE PERCENTAGE POINTS.
Let me just dispell some myths:
1. Keep going: I’ve been doing my little “program” since the beginning of school. True, each month I add something (this month was not eating after 7 pm and I’ve already decided next month I’m gonna increase my water intake by 3 glasses/day) — but this is truly getting depressing. This is more then 8 weeks.
2. Some people peak not at over 200 pounds, people don’t peak there. There, I’ve said it — I’m over 200 pounds. Now, just by a few, but it’s STILL THERE. Plus, can you peak before you even start?
3. You’re losing inches — I’ve done that, I don’t lose inches, so I thought the whole scale/body fat thing would perhaps be more encouraging.
If I was a weight watchers client, people would laugh at me every week. So, at least I just have my blog weigh-in. Peeps, I’m really sad about this. I know that i’m a little dehydrated, (thanks to the Halloween Happening last night) which could be affeecting the body fat percentage…
Yes, I’m gonna keep it up, but it was so nice to see a change last week.
On a brighter note, we did go to Conner’s Ponderosa Halloween Happening last night, the kids got a lot of nice junk that will keep them busy for at least an hour this morning, while I sob for a bit. We also went to the SC homecoming parade, which we could watch from the air conditioned comfort of our car. Now THAT’S a parade! Tonight we have our church party, and that should be uber fun as well. I’m so glad my mom’s here to help out with all our festivities.
And, a shout out to the Santa Clara Band that’s performing in Plesanton a couple of times today. Good luck Bruins!
