Week 116

1lb gain.

Part of me is relieved that it's only been a pound and another is really pissed off that I've slipped back under the 100lb loss mark.

What I hadn't catered for last week was the emotional fall out from the exhibition. Yes it went well, but it was such an emotional roller-coaster on the build up and the actual thing itself that there was an inevitable come-down afterwards and this past week has been quite a battle.

A friend of ours took the kids Friday night, which gave us a couple of days away on a well needed break, but that meant lunches and dinner out, plus coffees and nibbles in the mornings and afternoons.

All in all, a 1lb gain could have been so much worse.

This week, however, I really am hoping that we can properly get back on track.


Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 8lb - 176lbs
Body fat: 22.5%
Total Weight Loss: 99lbs

Good luck on your quest to get back under the 100lbs mark. And I mean like you said, 1lb is nothing.

I'm on a quest to lose ANYTHING this week :D

So, have you settled on a "Lord" goal yet? Not that you have to, but I know having a maintainence marker has been very helpful to me. There was some question as to whether you were going to call a hundredweight 100 or 112 lbs as I recall.

FLG - thanks

Lord Chubalot - it would be easy to take the 100lb marker and use that, but the reality is when I glance down, or sideways in a mirror, I still have a round belly there. Admittedly not as big as it used to be, but I'd be lying if I said I was at an ideal weight.

I think it has to be the 112lbs of the British hundredweight, which would take me down to 11 stone 9, or 163lbs. This is probably still a few pounds overweight, but I'm not going to fuss if I get down to that level..

With all that's going on in your life, I think a 1 lb. gain is quite an achievement. It seems like the kind of thing that "normal" people, those without major food issues, do.

Kim Ayres said...

Ah yes, normal people.

Sometimes it's really hard to imagine a life where food won't be a major issue on some level or another
