unofficial weigh-in

This was using a different scale, at a different time, under different conditions so I'm not sure how it compares to last week, but I feel like I'm doing pretty well. I have more wiggle room in my clothes and I am starting to feel "thin" even though I'm not at goal yet.

There's also always the same old turmoil cropping up about whether my goal is really valid or not. I feel like I look good at that weight and I'm within the WW-approved range (barely) for my height. But a nasty little part of me thinks, hey, 155 is still a big number and people will think you're stupid for being happy there.

Let's get to the goal first and then maintain it for a while, is what I'm telling this nasty little voice. If I decide that I am ready to lose more after maintaining for a month or so, then fine.

I think this "sure you're close to goal but at goal you'll still be fat" voice is a sneaky variant of Lori's Phantom Phat Pain.

  1. Why would you need to tell people how much you weigh? I think most people are either terribly inaccurate or just as bad, incredibly accurate about guessing weight. So don't worry about it and I know, easier said than done. I was playing around with the BMI index yesterday. I think it's the most evil thing I've seen in the name of medical science. In order to get from being overweight to "normal," I'd have to weigh 167.5 pounds. One half pound difference and I would be overweight. How screwed up is that? You swim, you bike, you are in races. You're probably healthier than someone who weighs substantially less.
