- Starting weight: 122.4kg
- One week ago: 119.5kg
- Today: 120.3kg
No, there is no need to hard sharp objects. I am not feeling gutted. Admittedly, very slightly disappointed. However… I still see this increase in weight as a blip, albeit a slightly longer one.
So what has happened this week?
The answer: the weekend. On Friday I had the munchies at work and visited the vending machine. On the weekend I had two lovely, tasty meals: Schnitzel with chips, followed by a nice big strawberry cake, and then later in the day, mixed grill, followed by several drinks down the cocktail bar in the Altstadt. Calories galore.
So what now? BAU: business as usual. After the weekend I have gone back to the normal diet (way of eating). Here’s why I am optimistic. On Sunday morning I weighed 122.5kg. This morning, two days later, I weighed over 2kg less. I know that it takes me 3, maybe 4, days to lose the weight I had gained. I’ve noticed the pattern. Now, tonight, having just had my evening meal, and (sorry to be scatalogical) not having been for a “number 2,” I weigh 120.3kg. (Bearing in mind that I tend to lose over 0.5kg overnight with exhalation and toilet trip, I anticipate weighing 119.xkg in the morning, and then continue the downward trend over the week.
Moreover, I know that I will be burning the calories this week, as I need to cycle to three meetings at church this week, and then do humping and dumping of supplies for our Saturday Tour de France garden party. (The key thing to do this week is to be fairly strict on the weekend, as well, to make sure the weight loss gets back into full swing.) Church is half an hour away by bike, one way.
So, another blip. That’s all it is. A blip.
Have a calm day, won’t you!
