...and this is one of those weeks.
So, we all know that there are times the scale completely screws you over. You had a great week, eating well and exercising. Then that scale shows you a number that's the same or even up. Other weeks, you fall off track, but amazingly still see a loss on the scale. Overall, it averages out. But, in the short run, the scale doesn't always give a "fair" number.
Having said that, I'm happy to say that this week, I got what I deserved.
After a week of staying on track, and tracking, I'm down to 218.8, for a weekly loss of 2.2 pounds and a total loss of 25 pounds even. This time I deserved it. I nailed my workouts and achieved new milestones in both swimming and running. A great week for me.
I'm also out of the 220s, a big deal for me. 5 years ago was the year that I gained immense amounts of weight and hit 255 (pre-pregnancy). Since then, I have only ever gotten into the 220s, never below. I've spent a lot of time in that weight bracket, since it was my high weight the time before when I gained weight. I seem to pause and plateau in that weight bracket. I use the word "plateau" liberally though, because the plateaus are usually of my own doing and as a result of me getting mentally stuck.
So, goodbye 220s. We will never meet again.
And thanks for giving me what I deserve scale.
