I know I'm not supposed to be doing this, but...

...I actually weigh myself every morning, Mon-Fri. Bad, bad, bad, I know. But I'm a glutton for the scale drama.

Anyway, here's what the scale said this morning: 159.8

So, you see why I'm posting this.

Now, this weigh-in is totally unofficial. What matters more is what next week's scale reading tells me. Still. I'm slightly encouraged. Part of me believed that I have lost more than what the scale has been telling me, but that the loss has been masked by the tummy issues. Those tummy issues finally resolved themselves earlier this week. My digestion is not sluggish anymore and seems back to normal.

On the other hand....

This could be water loss and I'll just regain weight and my scale will say "fuck you" and put me back in the 160's next week. Yup.

I must be out of my mind to fuss over what amounts to a 1 lb loss from yesterday. Judging from Tara's actions on Biggest Loser this week, a pound isn't worth what it used to be.

This morning I interval-cycled while watching the French bloodbath movie "Frontière(s) ." Not recommended.


  1. I can relate to the gluttony of the scale drama. I weigh myself almost everyday. I don't even skip weekends. Good job on the interval cycling, too bad the movie sucked. Congrats on the loss, enjoy living in the moment which means enjoying the 1 pound loss. This is coming out so wrong but I hope you get what I mean. Kudos! Sassle

  2. I would need anti-depressants if I were to weigh myself every day - you are way stronger than me!

    Hope that lovely number sticks around for you!

  3. I'd just be happy it's saying that now! Think positive!

  4. I told you it was that water retention...gets you all the time. Great job.

  5. Congrats! I hope it sticks around.

  6. I'm bad too, I do the same thing. But I think it actually helps me! It certainly helps me realize that there's a great deal of fluctuation on a day to day basis, so I don't worry about the numbers as much when I "count" my weight once a week.

  7. Yay Camevil!! That is great, and it counts to me! As you know, not only do I weigh myself everyday, I post it in my blog. And I still don't quite get why it is a bad thing to do. I know when I said to hell with it, and stopped weighing, is when I hit my highest weight. But hey, back to the 150s....I hope it sticks!!

  8. I'm thinking positive thoughts for you! I can't do the daily weigh-in. For one thing, I don't have a scale and for another, I didn't handle the normal fluctuations so well in the past. :)

    Have a great weekend!
