Weight Gain Week Twenty-Six ~ Rachel

I gained 0.6lbs since last Tuesday. Considering I was in an out of town wedding this past weekend, it could have been a lot worse! I now weigh 223.4lbs for a grand total of 42lbs lost since January 12th.

Today, at our meeting, we talked about plateaus. I thought I would take a look at my numbers from the last couple of months to see if I am battling a plateau (I wasn’t following the program terribly well so the plateau would be entirely my own fault).  In May, despite my ups and downs, I still lost 1.25lbs/week on average. In June, I lost 1.15lbs/week on average. So no plateau for me. Yoyo-ing, yes. Plateau, no.

I’m tired of the scale going up and down. I want consistent weight loss across the board. I don’t care what the number is, I just want it to be a loss each week.  I know what I have to do. No more fooling around and being lazy about it. My game face is on.

    I’m glad your game face is more attractive than that picture! You have done a great job. Very steady and consistent. That’s the kind of weight loss that will stay gone forever!

    Glad your game face is on!! I have been tempted to weigh myself, but I decided not to and wait – we’ll see!

    Hope you have a great weekend Rachel!

    I don’t know whether or not you saw it but Jody did a nice post on weight loss plateaus on June 22 on her truth2beingfit blog. Here’s a link to it if you want to look at it: http://truth2beingfit.com/2010/06/21/weight-loss-plateaus.aspx

    I know what you mean about wanting to see the scale go down every week. What I generally do is weigh myself a couple of days before my official weigh-in day. If I’m not showing any weekly loss by then, I increase my activity and I’m extra, extra careful about my eating for the next couple of days. This week will be a problem because my scale appears to be having a mid-life crisis and I’m not sure if I can trust its numbers.
