Counting (Weight Loss) Chickens Before They’re Hatched
Today’s weigh-in day and I’m down a pound this week. Great news, right?
If only I hadn’t stepped on that scale Wednesday morning. The scale showed me a 2.6 lbs. loss. Ugh!
This is why I don’t like stepping on the scale midweek. Your weight fluctuates daily. I stepped on the scale after a lot of exercise and before lunch. That 2.6 lbs. loss was a mirage.
Normally I’m over the moon with a 1 lbs. loss. But right after I stepped off the scale this morning, I started second-guessing everything.
After 5 minutes of thinking about my every move this past week, I realized my only mistake was Wednesday morning.
No more unofficial weigh-ins. I’m sticking to Saturday mornings.
