Wednesday weigh-in: A day late and a dollar short

I weighed in yesterday at 179.2, down a little from last week but still up from a couple of weeks ago. It's not surprising -- I had too little for lunch Tuesday and ended up having a bag of microwave popcorn as a snack before my class just to get through.

I am starting to have a lot of anxiety around the public weigh-ins and find I'm doing dumb things like this as a result. I'm considering dropping them. I am a member of the Half Size Me community and I can weigh in there for accountability  without posting my numbers publicly. 

I have been having trouble with my knee again and haven't been running, and I think that might be a factor in the higher numbers, even though I'm still doing other workouts.


  1. I find it hard to maintain, much less lose weight, when I'm not able to run. But strength training is supposed to help.

  2. Does your blood sugar drop?
    Or do you get a bad headache?
    Or what actually happens that
    you have (what I will call) an urgent need to eat?
    Is it a psychological thing?

  3. I had a headache and I had to teach until 9:30. I made the mistake of planning to wait to eat until after class -- not a good choice. I have to be at my best for teaching and being hungry and headachy is not the way to be.
