Scale wars - Alice 1, Scale 1.

So this morning my scale was less evil. Here are my last three weigh ins:

July 28 - 187lbs
August 4 - 188lbs
August 11 - 185.2lbs

So I dropped almost 3lbs this week! I am aware that last week was most likely a water weight gain and so the loss is more likely a pound each week but who cares. I have lost weight and am happy about it. I ran more this week so I'm pretty sure that didn't hurt with the weight loss. I also got into the pain zone on Tuesday so that should help next week. My leg muscles are still a little tender from that run even after a day off! So I know it was a great workout, and will do a nice little easy run today too.

One funny thing is that my friend Cecilia asked me if I was eating enough so I looked at my week and realized that I used a lot of points on snacky foods and not filling stuff, so this week I focused more on using the points for food, even if it's stuff I baked or cooked and less on snacks like freezies, and I think it really made a difference. Maybe I wasn't eating enough food. It always sounds funny to me that you can stall weight loss by not eating enough.

So after my gain last week I'm very proud that I didn't let the gain phase me and instead focused on doing better this week. Now tomorrow I leave for my mothers for a little over a week so my posts may be few until next weekend, but I've written my Friday favourites ahead of time so they will still post themselves. If I don't manage to write, I hope you all have a wonderful week, and I hope I don't overdue it on goodies while I'm away!


  1. Congratulations on the loss Alice!
    It is always good when we can keep our focus even when the scale does its nasty thing.

  2. Yay for a loss! It is always nice to see the scale reflect our efforts. You are doing awesome with your runs!
