2018-04-11 Weekly Weigh-In

Six weeks. It’s been six weeks since I did a “Weekly Weigh-in” post. Typically, this is a major warning sign, as it usually means that I went off the rails and then went into avoidance mode so I didn’t have to face the growing amount of damage I was doing to my overall health.

But, not this time.

While my weekly loss since my last post averages barely less than ½ pound, it still means my weight continued to drop, even in the face of a three-day birthday weekend eating bender followed by a remarkably similar one on Easter weekend. In fact, even without taking those into consideration, I’m satisfied with that weekly average. For this particular spin on the weight-loss merry-go-round, the hope is that a prolonged, slower loss results in an improved ability to go into maintenance mode once goal weight is reached. Clearly, that point is still months away, but for now, things are going to plan — even without posting every Wednesday as planned.

 

Change since last weigh-in (six weeks ago): -2.8 lb
2018 Cumulative loss: 9.6 lb
Pounds from goal:  21.0
