Getting into Shape: End of Week 14

Just ducking in. Before I give you this week’s news, I have one comment.

Snow! What a surprise! We never get snow around here!


Okay. So onto this.

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 1-28-14: 207.7
Total: 16.1 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 1-28-14: 210.2 (an overall gain of .2 for the week)
Total: 13.2 pounds LOST

Hey, this seems remarkably the same, doesn’t it? After a trip to Vegas, it’s good, baybee, it’s good.

What’s behind the scenes: Today I gained 2 pounds on the Wii. Woah. So next week’s numbers might be up a bit. We’ll see. There are several possible reasons: increased exercise, perhaps Vegas catchup (note how I didn’t gain weight when I got back. Could I be paying now?), perhaps female events (thanks to thyroid pills, I do get a period every once in a while, and I can count on a weight gain of around two pounds), stress (yesterday was worthy of my old attitude toward relaxation. There was no down time at all, and I fell asleep during my writing period. Crap. Cortisol, that’s all I’m saying.) or my personal favorite, acid reflux disease (sometimes things get, well, stoppered.) I’m still on program, but I have been using some of my flex points, so it could be as simple as too many flex points in too short a time. Although nothing like that has happened yet, it could happen.

So, we’ll see what we have tomorrow. I expect a dip. Just how much of a dip we’ll see. The drama! The drama!

Gotta go. Gotta have some lunch, I teach in another hour, and I still have a boatload of fire science work to do.
