My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Losing Weight In Public — Week 7

Patrick_StarfishWeek 1 weight: 305 pounds
Last week’s weight: 293 pounds
Current weight: 293 pounds
Weight lost since last week: 0 pounds
Total weight lost: 12 pounds

Well, that was the same. It’s funny, I got to the middle of the last week and—for whatever reason—I’d dipped to 289. I was on top of the world.

This is a very good example of why we should never weigh ourselves before weigh-ins: we might get cocky and decide to have 2x 22 ounce steaks over the next two days, a Chocolate Thunder From Down Under, and alcohol too. And a custard. (But the rest of the week was fine).

What did I learn? That “Low Carb / High Cake / Two Small Drinks” diets don’t work. But I didn’t learn it because I already knew it. I’m convinced the part of my brain that likes cake has been nibbling on my cerebral cortex.

This Week’s Challenge

1) Avoid sugar comas at all cost.
2) Try not to eat anyone accidentally.
3) Don’t weigh myself mid-week.

Ah well, no sense beating myself up about it. I’d probably lose anyway. See you next week, folks.

  1. Heh, I never seem to be able to get the cake out of my system. But I will try. Thanks again 🙂

  2. I think we have all made this mistake at least once (or twice, or trice *cough*). Ah well, it happens. It’s still awesome that you didn’t gain weight though. Good luck for the coming week!

    • Thanks for the support. I was pretty bummed about it. 🙂

      • You’re welcome and I can completely understand. When you feel you are really working hard, it’s always hard to cope with a week when you do not lose weight. But at least you got to the cake out of your system now ;).
