Weigh-In … New Progress Pics

Today’s Weight:  159.0
Loss/Gain:  -4.5 lbs
Before you think I’m starving myself… lol  Here’s my Bodymedia report.  
I was out of town at a kids camp for just over a day and did not wear the armband, nor did I track my food.  (I was electronic free for most of the time.  🙂 ) Trust me when I say that I did not eat like I was trying to lose weight.  It wasn’t the portions as much as the type of food served.  I did take my own half and half, because they always “treat” us counselors with flavored creamers and I didn’t want the extra sugar.  But the yogurts and fresh pineapple I took to eat instead of the full breakfast the next day just sat in the fridge in the kitchen.  
I decided since camp was only one full day this year, versus three in the past, I would eat what was served.  The man that runs the kitchen bakes all the breaded items from scratch.  So, there was a fresh biscuit and sticky bun with a good protein-laden breakfast, fresh bread wrapped around a hot dog for a pig-in-a-blanket lunch and then fresh homemade crust on the pizza at dinner.  It was delicious.  I was worried about all those carbs, but I had been careful the day before when I ran and we headed over to camp, so I hoped that would help. 
Sunday was a little better, but I ate everything I burned, so I was very careful during this week to try and make up for the heavy weekend. 
I guess I did just fine.  
Just so you know though…I did not carb load for my 8-mile run this morning.  The last two weigh-ins I’ve been carb loading the day before and I know it puts the scale up a pound or so the morning of weigh-in.  This time I decided I’d have white rice with my dinner and call it good. 
This was good for the scale, but not so good for the run.  Yikes.  I had to take in energy twice during this run because I was getting HUNGRY.  That’s strange for me.  Usually it’s to prep me so I don’t drag, but not because I’m actually feeling hunger.  
I share that because a week ago Thursday I was 161 on the scale and that makes this loss more like 2 pounds, versus 4.5.  Of course, that still means I’ve lost a good amount over the last two weeks and I’m owning every pound of it.  I’m being careful.  I’m working towards finishing off my weight loss journey, and I actually eat over 1200 calories a day (imagine that!!) and it’s paying off.  
In honor of breezing into another decade of weight loss here are some new progress pictures.  These were taken this morning after my run.  I’m pleased to [FINALLY] be able to say I’ve lost over 70 pounds — 73 pounds to be exact.  😀
Thanks for stopping by!  Here’s to continuing the downward trend.  🙂
