Mae, if you did go over by a few points yesterday, I'd be willing to bet you'd find yourself down another pound if you weighed yourself in a day or two. Not that I'm saying you should -- but without getting gross about it, sometimes the weight of the food we've eaten shows up on the scale even if said food will, er, be eliminated a few hours later.
I was lucky to be able to leave Mae's house of temptation and come home to the land of shrimp and vegetables, haha!
Weigh day rituals
As I showered this morning, I thought about the ladies who used to attend my Saturday morning meetings, and the rituals they all admitted to following on weigh day. The idea was to get rid of anything that might possibly weigh you down at the scale. So:
- nothing to eat or drink all morning, of course (water is heavy!)
- legs and underarms shaved
- eyebrows plucked
- cuticles trimmed
- teeth flossed
- a trip to the bathroom immediately before getting in line for the scale
- shoes, jackets, sweaters, earrings off
Lost this week: 2
Lost so far: 7
Still remaining: 93
Weeks to go: 50
I am going to be really happy when that "still remaining" number starts with an 8.
And next Thanksgiving I will read that last sentence and realize how far I've come... I hope.
