Rollercoaster of Lard - Weigh in 74 kgs

It seems lately I have one week with a small gain ffollowed by a big loss. I can live with that as it means I'm 1.6 down from last week. Weird, huh? I never used to have more than a kg loss last year. Now I'm exercising less and eating treats but losing the weight. Maybe I'm not eating as much as I think and, to be honest, I'm eating a truckload of fruit. I didn't even exercise that much this week - I did a 6 km walk/run on Monday and a 12 km walk on Wednesday but no gym. Yikes - hope I'm not losing muscle tone.

I must 'fess up - when I saw 74.0 on the scales this morning. I ran back to the toilet, hoping I could some how elminate 100 grams from body. I was even checking for squeezable pimples, anything to push me into the 73s. But it wasn't to be.

When my sister and I were kids, we used to giggle over a bit of grafitti we'd once read on the toilet wall - here I sit broken hearted, thought I shit but I only farted. I learnt the true poignancy of that verse this morning.

I even took the hair elastics off my hair before I reweighed but I'm just not meant to be in the 73s. Not this week anyway.

Yikes - just realised that now I've identified this - small gain, big loss - pattern, I don't want to get into the mindset that I'm going to gain this week so I can have a free for all. I'm going to have to work hard to burn off the hen's night festivities anyway.

squeezable zits!! mwahahahah :) what a great loss, woohoo!

LOL don't get too crazy about that figure girl. I started to at the end and realised I was getting too nuts, hence the 5kg buffer I gave myself. I'm up again too this week but it's alright.

Somehow I don't think this week is going to give you the same gain result. Lots of different things are happening for you and your determination is there not let it become a pattern.

Have a great weekend babe!!

I hear you on the hangover thing, and that's exactly why I don't drink much anymore either. Youch!
Have a great week.
