Today is Weigh In! Are we ready? Okay so I lost a pound. From Thursday to Sunday I had a two pound loss but then my Mothers Day meal caused me to gain a pound and I cant lose that pound in a day so here I am with only a pound loss to report. I cant tell you how many weeks that happens to me. I'll have more of a loss the week after weigh in and then gain over Sunday.
For that reason I am going to bump this weigh in day to Thursday after this! How does that sound? Its all a game anyway but head games are what its all about in many ways. We need to do little things to make ourselves feel better but in the end the weight that is off is the weight that is off regardless of when we weigh.
I also read an interesting thing on the Internet. It said that if you are losing 2 pounds a week consistently that you are losing too fast and will have trouble keeping it off later. If you are losing less then a pound a week, however, consider yourself stalled. The perfect weight to lose in a week is 1 to 1.5 pounds a week. It went on to give the bodies chemistry and such and why this works but suffice it to say that we should all find that quite comforting.
A pound lost in a week is a good rate of loss for the future. Its funny when you think about it; if we gain at the rate of a pound a week we are horrified at our huge weight gain but if we lose a pound we week we grow impatient at the slowness of it all! It's a shame really.
Anyway I want to hear now about your losses. Lets go ladies! Lets lose that weight!
