weigh-ins

I don't have a lot of time to blog today, but instead of the ticker I usually to track my weight, I decided to include a chart that gives more of a history of what has been happening lately. Last week I gained almost 4 pounds. As of today, that is all gone except 0.4 -- not bad considering that I was over by 20 points (almost a whole day's worth) at least 2 days this last week. I want to get that line moving down, but with the holidays coming, I at least want to avoid any more upticks like last week's.

  1. My weight was up earlier in the week too (it is gone plus an extra pound as of today). I really let it bum me out and thought I would never be allowed to eat like a 'normal' person, even for one meal. (Saturday I had 2 pcs. of pepperoni pizza and small slice of cake at baseball party = 1 meal and my weight soared.)

    I like your chart. Very interesting. I keep mine on Fitday, but the last 3 weeks I haven't been logging my food or weight into it. That will be my goal after Thanksgiving.

    Good luck Jen - I know you will meet your goal. I always think about you and your athletic ability (triathlons)when it comes time to get on that treadmill everyday.

    Yah for getting rid of the 4 lbs!! I have found fasting to be a wonderful experience - for me it's spiritual - concentrating on being satisfied by my Lord - rather than what's on my fork. I really like your graph.

  5. Cool chart - where did you find that? I want to chart my daily points in a way that shows me I am actually doing better, not just imagining I am.

  6. I created the graph using Microsoft Excel. It was kind of a pain to create an image that I could use in Blogger from it. I had to enter the data, create the chart, save the chart as a web page, preview the web page in Internet Explorer, right-click the chart and save it as an image, upload it to Photobucket, and then link it to Blogger. There may be an easier way to do it but this is what I figured out. I don't know of any cool online graphing programs so I did it this way.
