Woah, a 6 pound drop this week, without even exercising. Again, my freaking period makes my weight loss seem bigger than it probably actually was. I’ve been recording my weight every week in a program called “Fit Day” which graphs the data for me and you can see the humps every month when I’m menstruating. It’s so weird.
I can’t help but think back to that NBC show that was on a couple months ago, “The Biggest Loser” in which people competed to see who could lose the most weight. I can see now the women had a big disadvantage as well as advantage. The week they were on their period, they would appear to lose less weight than they had – disadvantage. However, if they were able to get through that week, the next week they’d appear to lose more than they had – definite advantage.
I’m going to start walking again today and hope my knee can handle it. It’s nice to know I can lose weight just on the diet, though I’m guessing that as I approach my goal weight the exercise will become more and more necessary to achieve any loss.
Just a summary, I’ve now lost 83 pounds. I’m 23 pounds away from the halfway point of my loss, which I’ll probably hit around the end of August, beginning of September.
