Ok so I am back to my weigh-ins every 2 weeks like I did when I first started my weight loss journey. I have found that is the best 'weigh' to do it for me (haha I'm a dork). I am often tempted to weigh myself every day to see if the scale is moving down....and sometimes, I will admit, I do take a sneak peek before weigh-in day. But once I have my mind set to doing weigh-ins every 2 weeks, I'm pretty good about it. It's almost fun to work your butt off and hope to see results at the end of that 2 week period. It also keeps me somewhat honest with regards to my workouts and food choices, knowing that day is coming. I have always done weigh-ins on Thursdays; I'm not sure why, that's just how I've done it. So I weighed myself on Jan 9th (YIKES) and for the next week, I did go to the gym maybe once and did somewhat awful with my food choices. The next week I buckled down and got fully back into my routine.
I weighed myself on Thursday, Jan 23rd and was down a pound. That's a good thing since really, I had only been back on my program for one week. Next weigh-in is Thursday, Feb. 6th so I'm hoping for good results then. I also pay attention to how my clothes fit -- my pants have all been tight, to the point I can't even wear my black dress pants to work right now. So I will monitor that as well; I can't wait to be able to wear all my regular clothes again! I've just been going back & forth between the one pair of jeans that fit me and my leggings. I have cute stuff that I can't wear and that's annoying! Haha
PS - just a note, still doing great at the gym, I went Saturday AND Sunday and then did legs & back this morning. :) And my food choices have been really good too. Only thing that was somewhat of a 'cheat' was my mashed potatoes & baked mac & cheese (small portion) with my tilapia from Ruby Tuesday on Saturday night.
