Weigh-in this morning (at my friend's house, since I don't own a scale):
My thought: that can't be right. I didn't gain 2.4 lbs this week. No way. This digital scale is wonky.
Step off the scale. Pause. Make sure I am truly, truly naked and jewelry free. Back on the scale.
WHAT? Shut up, you piece of crap scale!! Give me the right number!
Off. Pause. Back on.
Alright, what happened to 147.4? I'll take it! I mean, I thought I hated it at 1st, but it's looking better and better now.
Then I spotted an old fashioned turning-type scale on top of the bathroom cabinets. Got on that. 145 - maybe a smidgeon over it - 145.5?
I want to say I'll just go with that, but I know that's ridiculous. I have to stick with my usual scale. But what the heck # do I go with for this week, "officially"?
My weekly stats: Recommended Weekly Calories for .8 lb weight loss per week: 8400 per week (or 1200/day)
I ate 9239 calories - that's 839 calories over my recommended goal for the week.
Exercise: 5 hrs 45 min, burned 2526 calories this week.
I should say that in doing all this math w/ my stats from MyFitPal, my numbers keep coming up differently, but even considering all the variations, my end results says I've burned off my excess calories consumed. I haven't been hungry this week at all. When I'm under my daily cal count, I'm only under by a little. When I've gone over, I've gone way over - 130, 798, and 256 over on different days this week. So I don't think my metabolism is slowing down due to not eating enough. Plus, my "under" days haven't been under 1200 cal's eaten - the total just comes down below 1200 after I factor in my workout.
Issues to consider: I had NOTHING in my stomach when I weighed in. I had a horrible migraine and nausea yesterday, threw up even after my stomach was empty, and late last night managed to eat only a bowl of Cheerios. I was under my 1200 calorie goal for the day.
Other issue - for some reason, the past 2 days I've been noticing my stomach/waist looking thicker than usual. Bloating? Fat? WHAT? Why?? So I wasn't really sure I'd see a weight loss this week. But not a 2.4lb gain, or a 3.2 lb gain!
I have no idea what to make of my weight today. I think I'll re-check tomorrow. Not sure why I think a day can somehow clarify my weight, but I'm not sure what else to do, or which # to go with for my weekly weigh in.
