OK let's be calm here and try to think of this in the best possible light. I promise, I am not having a melt down. This is, this week's weigh in stats.
Week 8: 11/10/2010
Weight: 11st 13.4lbs/ 167.4lbs (+0.6)
Waist inches: 34 inches (nil)
Hip inches: 41 inches (nil)
Arm Width: 14.25 inches (-0.25)
Thigh Width: 25 inches (nil)
BMI: 31.6 kg/m2 (+0.1)
For the first time in 50 days I have put on any weight - so by that token, I should be proud. At the same time I'm feeling kind of *screams* because it can be slightly disheartening. Let's not exaggerate, but I am slightly peeved.
Besides the fact that I've 'sort of' lost some on my arms, nothing much has changed besides having put on just under half a pound. OK so what was the culprit? Well let's see, I exercised well (although I didn't exactly push seriously hard), I ate out twice and didn't pick great choices (but they were the best I could at the time!) and I snacked on a few soya vegan treats. I also really went crazy with the grains.
Well if you look at that you would instantly point your fingers at the outdoor eating and maybe the grains and treats. However to make things even more complicated, I am going to be on my period soon. So that's most likely it. Not to mention when I'm on period I eat a lot more so I usually expect to put on a little bit and feel quite awful.
So if we look at it now... putting on less than half a pound is actually pretty damn good, right?
So now, I'm happy again.
