Weigh-In … Playing With Fire

Today’s Weight: 202.0

Loss/Gain: +3.0 lbs

Total Loss So Far: -29 lbs.

As per the Summertime Challenge, here’s the picture of the scale this morning. I’m at my mom’s and her scale doesn’t keep the number unless you’re standing on it. I was having problems with the flash and such and the high number didn’t have me in a patient mood. *sigh*
Now, when I said I wasn’t looking for a loss this week I didn’t expect this. All week I’ve been hovering between 199/200. Today was the first time it was over 200, so I was a bit shocked. That is, until I thought about what I ate yesterday and that I only drank one 16-ounce glass of water all day.
Yes, when you play with fire you’re bound to get burned.
So, I can imagine why this number is up and I’m not going to make excuses. While I’m here at my parent’s house I’ve been happy to just maintain, because with all the other stress going on I’m not concerned with trying to lose weight these two weeks.
I’m thinking this might be a bad mentality, but it’s how I’ve felt. However, I refuse to go up any more, so this “fire” will be put out. The 200’s are not my friend at 5′ 4″ and I will not stay visiting them for too long.
Thanks for checking in! Have a good day and a nice weekend if I don’t hear from you before then.

    Is it a different scale, Leah? I get different numbers on my analog and my digital. I tell myself I'm looking for a “general trend.” 200 does seem like a nice dividing line to stay under and I'm confident you'll do what it takes to get back there. Not forgetting the 30 pounds you've already lost.

    You will have a loss this next week, Leah, I know you will!
    I know what you mean – when I got over 300 again a few weeks ago, pregnant or not, my heart broke a little bit because regardless of the reason, I NEVER wanted to see that number again, and now…I won't, just like you will be kissing 200 goodbye next week – FOREVER!


  3. I totally understand the 200's not being your friend, I'm 5'2 and a lil bit and I'm in the 200's so I know exactly how it affects short people. And it will all be ok just start fresh and expect a loss next week. Good luck and keep up the good work.


  4. You will have it off in no time!! You can do it 🙂
