This week really flew by. I half-consciously tried really hard. Then all of a sudden yesterday I was like “Oh shit, tomorrow is weigh in!” Since I weigh myself daily (no need for negative opinions on that, it works for me) I wasn’t looking forward to today. The scale really hadn’t moved more than a half a pound up or down all week so I decided to bust out the Polar HRM. Obviously my calorie counts must be changing since Laney is getting bigger and not nursing so much. Well after all day and night (except for during my exercising) I burned 2222 calories. So I should be consuming around 1700 a day, plus eating back my exercise calories, they are approximately 300 calories a day, that would put me around 2000 cal a day and right now my MFP limit is at 1900, so today I will be pushing it back to 1700 and we’ll see what happens. I think I know what I owe this to though…
Yesterday I drank over 150 oz of water. I think my body was having a hard time catching back up on water from the weekend, ok, the last couple of weeks, and I was still only drinking what I should in a normal day to maintain my hydration level.
Needless to say I’m happy with that number! It’s the best loss I’ve had in a weeks! Now I’m just hoping it’s a “real” number and not some fluke that’s just going to go back up to 170 tomorrow. I now have 15 days to lose 1.1lbs and maintain it for Erika’s Dietbet.
Last night my mother also made a comment that baffled me, but it wasn’t the first time she’s made it. She said “You aren’t going to lose too much more are you? You are starting to look sick.” My jaw dropped, I said “It must just be because you aren’t used to seeing me this small. I’m not even at a healthy BMI yet. My goal weight is another 15 lbs, but I’m aiming for a size 10, then hopefully some day a size 8!”
Have you had anyone make strange comments or wonder when you’re going to stop?
