Sometimes it just makes no sense.

So I was heading in the the WW meeting last night expecting a small gain, hoping for a small loss and what did I get...

2.4 pound loss

Holy crap!  Immediately I was thinking back over my week and wondering what I had done.  I literally had not run a step and had not worked out at all the entire week.  I ate decent, but nothing like I ate those first several months on plan.  So what happened?

Honestly I think that there is very little explanation.  I did what I could to make good choices but that was about it.  I think my body was just ready to give up those couple of extra pounds.  We get so tied to the scale and what it says and no matter what anyone says we still go back to it and look at it as our judge and jury.  I would love to tell you that I am no longer going to be that way, but I will tell you that I think I have come to the conclusion that continuing to move forward is the right thing.  Do your best and move on.  Don't concern yourself with a small gain, just move on.  Track trends and learn from them but do not obsess over them.

I hope you all have a great weekend.  I know I will!  We have a great slate of college football this weekend!  I will be at the Mizzou vs OK St game tailgating and screaming till I have no voice and I cannot wait.  My buddy Will over at 4XLT is on the side of the Cowboys of OK St but I cannot hold that against him.  He is doing great in his weight loss efforts too.  Check out his blog, you will be happy you did.

I finally gave up wondering what was going to happen on the WW scale at meetings. I had to step back and look at the big picture.

Everything you did the previous 7 days won't magically show up the day of the meeting!

So I would only "look" once a month and that worked!

Looking forward to checking out your blog.
