I weighed in my usual way and then put on my official weigh-in outfit, left. It's capri tights, a thin t-shirt, underwear and a sportsbra (plus my glasses, which I always wear to weigh in) and it apparently weighs 1.2 pounds, because that was the difference between my own weigh-in (183.6) and the one I did for DietBet (184.8). One of my verification photos is attached. There is also a scale photo with the same secret word. I will wear the same exact outfit for my weigh-out photo, which I will only have to do if I win and reach my goal weight (177.4). I will need to average about 2 pounds a week. I will be adding the 1.2 pound clothing weight to my check-ins on the game, but when I weigh-in here and on LoseIt, I won't -- just to keep things consistent, if confusing.
I am a little disappointed that my weight is up from yesterday -- we went out for dinner but I thought it was early enough (5:30) that it wouldn't affect the scale. My overall calories for the day were pretty close to target.
I am going to have to be very careful about calories, hydration, sodium, everything if I am going to make this work. I checked my weight history, and if I make my goal, it will be my lowest weight in more than two years. That makes me a little sad -- I didn't realize how long I've been up -- but it gives me even more reason to make this work.
