This morning I weighed in at 256.4 pounds. That was up 0.2 pounds from last week. My total weight loss to date is 88.6 pounds.
I am not really sure why I had a slight gain. I tracked my points fairly well, and worked out several times. I can guess that I might be retaining a bit of water. It’s also possible that I am adding muscle mass from the work outs and it is counter balancing my weight loss. One other possibility has to do with stress. I am at a critical point on some of my work deliverables, and it has been very stressful getting them completed. Perhaps the stress has messed my metabolism up some. All that said, I am not terribly upset about a 0.2 gain. It essentially means I was level for the week.
This weekend is our last camping trip of the season, and then back to another immensely stressful week at work. My plan will be to continue working out, doing a better job tracking my food, and staying the course.
