Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Weekly Weigh-In: Up 1.2 Pounds

aug 10 weightI can’t believe that I fretted about losing “only” 0.6 lbs. last week.

Ok, I need to shake things up this week. Here’s my plan:

  1. Write It Down – Research shows you lose weight with a food journal. I keep a food journal, but I’m not diligent about it. The goal this week is to track everything, including the tastes I take while cooking. I set up the Weight Watchers app on my phone and tablet. I even set up alerts to remind me to track. No excuses now.
  2. 7 Hours – My insomnia is back. I’m getting about 5 hours of sleep a night. So my body isn’t properly producing the appetite-regulating hormones. Ghrelin tells you when to eat. Leptin tells you when you are full. Lack of sleep and you’ll have too much ghrelin and not enough leptin. Time to break out the herbal tea 45 minutes before bedtime.
  3. Water Weight – Thanks to the more intense walks, my legs are sore. I think this is the source of my gain. When you workout microscopic tears appear in the muscle fiber. The fiber basically becomes a sponge, absorbing water. In a few days, my muscles should release the water (and the 1.2 lbs.).

Weight loss is a marathon not a sprint. My resolve is a lot stronger than 1.2 lbs.
