Week 15: 338
Weight Lost This Week: 0 (gained 4 pounds)
Total Weight Lost: 52 pounds
To be fair, there were 2 birthdays, my dad was in town, and it was that time of the month. On the other hand, even though I ate a ton of crap this week, I don’t think I should have gained 4 pounds from it. There were only 2 days that I was WAY, WAY over and on most of the others I was on-target or my exercise calories came pretty close to canceling out the overages (normally I don’t eat them back, but some do) – so this much of a gain seems to be excessive. Especially given that my 1200 a day calorie goal is quite a ways under what most programs say that I need to eat in order to lose (like most put me around 1700), so even if I’m not losing anything, I shouldn’t be gaining either. Oh well… on to a new week and getting back on track.
The really sad part – except for the day I ate at Outback (and the birthday cakes), most of the food I ate wasn’t that great and I ended up regretting eating it almost immediately. What’s the fun of eating if you can’t enjoy it? 😦
