weigh-in update, 5/29/2007

Weight Chart

Well, most of the weight gained last week seems to have disappeared this week, though I don't think my food was that much different. I tried, but I still overdid it at a Memorial Day picnic and had a couple of other days where I was over even my new maintenance range. The big difference was switching my exercise schedule back around so I did a run this morning before weigh-in instead of lifting weights. I am not silly enough to think that one weight workout could add muscle, but the different workouts probably make a difference in how much water my body is holding when I weigh in.

I think for this week I'm going to go back to losing mode and wait to go into maintenance until I am one or two pounds below goal. I don't want to be in the position of worrying about every tiny detail of weigh-in -- I want to have enough of a margin for error that I really don't worry about being over. I know it's silly to focus on the number on the scale this much, but when it means spending $10-12 less in meeting dues each week, it matters to me.

Good news, though, I think I might have a roomie for BlogHer. This means I can actually afford to go! I have to look at bus and train schedules to Chicago once we get our hotel reservation settled.
