So the weigh-in this morning was an un-surprising set-back at 244.5 which is +0.5 lbs from last week. Originally I went to the bathroom (#2) this morning and then weighed like I usually do and the scale said 246.0 so I took my lashings and posted a 2lb gain all over the blog. About an hour later, however, I had to go to the bathroom (#2) again, which is unusual for me. Because I usually only go once in the morning I decided to weigh again after the second potty-visit and was at 244.5 so I danced my way happily to the computer and updated my weight. Maybe this is cheating a little but I see no point in counting 1.5 lbs of waste, right? I had a pretty crappy, lackluster, unproductive week and I didn't figure that the hard work I put in this weekend would do too much to make up for it. So I gained a little, this proves only that I'm human and susceptible to bouts of weakness. I will prevail, however.
On a more positive note: I decided it would be fun to get a little dressed up to run errands yesterday. I don't really get "cleaned up" very often anymore; my usual attire is random pants, a tank-top, a pony tail, and no makeup. But I'm feeling pretty good about myself, (small gain this morning aside) so I decided to put together an actual outfit yesterday. *cue dramatic music*
Another upside that I would like to mention is the fact that our "bank lady", that is the lady at the bank that we see every weekend when we go in to cash Snack Monkey's checks, noticed that I've lost weight!!! She is the branch manager so she was in the office yesterday doing paperwork when we arrived. We waived "hi" through the window and then headed for the first open teller and she called out from her office "have you been losing?" I turned around because I wasn't sure if she was talking to us or not but yep! She was looking right at me so I grinned from ear to ear and said Yep! She wanted to know how much so I told her it was 43 lbs at last count (41 now with this week's bad behavior) and she said I look great! *sigh* There's really nothing like having people who are practically strangers notice you're losing weight. Let me tell you boys and girls ... moments like that alone make it all worth it!
