Middle Digit Drop…Maybe?

Hey! Look at that! I dropped my middle digit…maybe.

I’ve been bouncing around for a while in the same 1-2lb range, but today when I got on the scale the numbers dropped almost a pound to lower me to the next decade of weight. It’s still a long, long way from goal, but at least it’s a new number.

The tragedy is, my blood sugar was higher last night, so the weight may or may not stay off. Also, I’m struggling with my sinuses today, so I might have to drop some meds to get rid of it. If I do, THAT will likely have an impact on my weight too. *Sigh*

And, there’s always the jiggling and bouncing. I could regain all that weight — and then some — overnight. It’s happened before, I’m sure it will happen again.

The first time I did the Atkins diet back in 1997, I experienced something similar. I’d hit mini-plateaus, where nothing would happen for a while (sometimes a week), and then my weight would "avalanche" (a term I used, nothing official) — where it would drop a couple or three pounds in a day. It would fall for a bit then hit the plateau, get me to a point of discouragement, then "avalanche" again. So maybe I’m only seeing this sort of behavior out of my much-larger body again.

But, in better news, my wife’s weight numbers fell a whopping and UNBELIEVABLE 12lbs in a single day yesterday! She believes, if the number stays consistent for her, the scale wasn’t working right and might have been showing her erroneous numbers for a while. I wonder if that has anything to do with my inconsistent or repetitive readings too, but whatever the case, here’s hoping! Clearly she didn’t lose 12lbs in a single day, but the new numbers for her are very exciting and she’s got some major encouragement for a change. Well done, love!

Anyway, at 229.6lbs… for now.

    Congrats to you both! Absolutely wonderful accomplishment!

    Well, thank you! But I fear I’ll see a big difference tomorrow. My carbs and protein both crept a bit on me today. I’ll have to be more diligent tomorrow, I suppose. Nice to see you!
