Pound for Pound: Week 1
This morning, I had my first “official” weigh in for the Pound for Pound Challenge.
I say “official” this time because I gave my official weight last week, but that was from my home scale and we all know the importance of consistency and using the same scale each week.
Today’s Weight: 151.6
I am up a bit from last week, but there were several factors at play here:
- I used a different scale this week
- I weighed at 11 a.m. instead of first thing in the morning
- I had clothes on
- My muscles are a bit inflamed from the awesome workout I had yesterday
So I’m not upset, concerned, etc. I wouldn’t be even if all of that weren’t true. The scale does not determine my happiness or my satisfaction with my body. I love me!
The last time I was in a weight loss program, I weighed in at the same time on the same day on the same scale once a week. I also wore the same or very similar clothing. The more consistent you can be, the more accurate your readings.
I might get rid of my home scale too. I originally did not have a scale at home, but since we are off work for two weeks around the Christmas holidays, I got one to keep me accountable around that time back in 2007.
Finally, I am counting today as my starting point and setting some goals for this week!
Goals for Week 1:
- Journal/Meal planning
- Portion control
- Obey the 9 o’clock rule (aka no eating 2 hours before bedtime)
If you are in a weight loss program, how is it going for you? What are your goals this week?
