Week 113

o.2lb gain.

That's a bit disappointing. Despite the fact that I've been on track this week, and that I'm at least a tooth lighter, I've not really budged.

My hope at the moment is that next week will show a drop again. Looking at my stats over the past couple of months it's like there are 2 different scales going on, alternating between weeks. If you measure the weight fortnightly, then I drop on both levels:

Week 105 - 179.8lbs
Week 107 - 178.6lbs
Week 109 - 178lbs
Week 111 - 176.4lbs
Week 113 - 175lbs

Week 106 - 181.2lbs
Week 108 - 177.2lbs
Week 110 - 175lbs
Week 112 - 174.8lbs

However, if you put them together, I'm zig-zagging all the way. So, as next week is an even week, I should have a bigger drop.

So after years of struggle I've finally realised it's got nothing to do with food, and everything todo with whether it's an odd or even week...

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 7lb - 175lbs
Body fat: 22.5%
Total Weight Loss: 100lbs

That's interesting!!! Maybe I should only weigh myself on even weeks...

Still - the general trend is downwards and that's good!

Not a major increase, next week you'll be bippity bops.

Hey keep up the zig-zag method it seems to be working!

Sayre - absolutely - you can eat whatever you want on the odd numbered weeks...

FMC - Hope you're right (you usually are)

Sir SemiSolid - it has it'sups and downs...

Ahhhhhhhh, the insights of such an analytical mind! When my kidlets were little, my daughter "got" the even numbered days, my son the "odd." Ben got to sit in the front of the car with me, for example, on the 27th of the month; Rachael on the 28th. The person whose month it was got to decided. Even numbered days are feminine because of the two X chromosomes; odd numbered are masculine because of one X and one Y. Congratulations on the downward trend.

I think I'm about to buck this trend. It's Sunday so I haven't weighed myself yet, but because of the hecticness of my wife's exhibition and the fact that my father has come up to visit for a few days, our eating has been all over the place. Not only have we had a couple of take-aways, Maggie's insisting on cooking a large meal with desert for my father tonight.
