I don't know what I weigh this week. Sunday morning I hopped on the scale and saw that I was down two pounds, let out a "Wohoo!" and hopped back off. Walker heard me screeching and poked his head in the bathroom to inform me that the scale wasn't working. Not sure how he could determine that, I hopped back on. Up seven pounds. Oh - that's how.
I changed the batteries and weighed myself four more times. I was careful not to move the scale when I got on and off it. I got four very different readings, from a two pound loss to a whopping nine pound gain. We went shopping for a new scale that afternoon. Of course, by then, I'd had a couple glasses of water and a Coke Zero, not to mention breakfast. I like to weigh myself first thing, so I can get a consistent reading. So I don't have an official weigh in this week.
Instead, I'm happy to report some measurements. Spark People recommends taking your measurements once a month. You don't have to, and it's something I've never done before. I always just went by my weight. But this time I thought, what the heck, and took some measurements when I started the plan. One month later, I've lost one inch in my waist and one inch in my hips. My upper arm stayed the same. Spark People doesn't record bust measurements.
I had a couple really hungry days this week. I assume they're hormone related. I used to get really hungry for three or four days before my cycle started, and I would crave salt like crazy. I had a hysterectomy a couple years ago, but I still have the hungry days and the salt cravings every couple weeks. I should probably start tracking it, so I can be better prepared. I ended up going over my calorie limit by a couple hundred calories, but only once. I figure that will balance with the couple days I was at the low end of the goal.
