I am thanking the weight loss gods today. Somehow I managed a Biggest Loser like 8 pound lose this last week. Even after all the beer and pizza and just poor choices from the weekend I lost and lost big. It may still catch up with me and I am prepared for that. However I am back to tracking and should be able to get back to the gym again soon. I did however manage a run last night.
I RAN to the Weight Watchers meeting. How nuts is that. It was a 3.25 mile run that kicked my but. I was slow and was reminded very quickly why I like to keep to the side roads. I had to stop 4 different times for traffic. I just hate that. There were other things that were more of a factor. For instance, not running since the race. The other was the hills. Oh my goodness. I had no idea it would be that brutal. I made it though even with a little kick at the end.
So you might be wondering what I did the rest of the week to lose 8 pounds. I wish I could tell you exactly. I cut out most of the diet coke and all of the frozen box lunches and I tracked everything during the week. More than anything I think my body was ready to be done with the weight. I looked at a line graph of my weight loss and found that on 2 previous occasions after a stall I have losses come up in successive weeks. And the first was generally pretty significant.
So I cannot explain it. I just go with the flow and try to keep the train rolling.
