Feb 13, 207

Official weigh-in day. Yesterday was sort of a light-calorie day and I was hoping for a very VERY exciting weigh-in, but instead I'm still pretty 207. (It can be hard to read that scale!) If I were less than 207 I'd be weighing less than ever and there would be many exclamation points. Instead, I have only achieved my previous low weight. Meh.

On the other hand - I feel VERY bloated and didn't get enough sleep last night, so I actually expect to see the 206-iness soon this week. On the other hand, we're going to New York City this weekend, and I don't expect to return without having gained a little poundage, which I'll have to re-lose.

So when I look at the chart and see that after my agony in January with not seeing the progress I was looking for, I can now see a standard 2-pounds-per week kind of trend going on, and (without New York City) I could easily see myself reaching my 198 by my March 28 goal - it falls on the "schedule" to happen by March 20. But if I miss it by a week or two, remind me that that's ok.

Well, I'm mostly just blogging because I'm postponing having to go to work. I feel so sleepy and crampy I just don't see myself getting in a third workout this week. Don't bug me about it! grr.

2 pounds a week is great. I'd be extremely happy with that number! Losing is definitely a good trend. I've been reading blogs and you can't believe how many people gained this week. They blame it on the snow, their cold or whatever. You did good!

I would LOVE to see a 2 lb a week trend going on. That has NEVER happened for me! You're doing great.

I think you're doing great! You'll get where you need to get, even if it does take slightly more (or less) time than you plan on!
So jealous that you're going to NYC, I haven't been for years and its one of my favourite cities! If you walk a lot you might find it doesn't have as much effect on your weight as you expect...
