Baby steps…

Still here! It didn’t even take me a week for my next journal update! Although I haven’t much to say. I blame the cantaloupe I just ate – my body has been used to having nothing healthy at all for months. Having a lot of fruit? Yeah, my body isn’t used to that, though it does seem to be enjoying it. Fruit with breakfast and lunch. That’s one way to get healthy!

I had some forced exercise this weekend. My son plays flag football, and during the game  I like to walk up and down the sidelines, so I can see each play as close as possible. Add this to the walk from the parking lot out to the field, and you have at least a few extra minutes of exercise than I would’ve done otherwise. Anything that moves me forward!

On a site note: I’m looking through themes, trying to find one that catches my fancy. It’s possible you’ll see a lot of different site designs over the next week or two before I settle on the new, official WeightJournal.com design.

“light” and “heavy” weight days

Does anyone have days in the week where they weigh more than others? I consistently weigh less on Saturday mornings. Sometimes by 2-3 pounds. For example, on Thursday I weighed in at 303.8. Yesterday (Saturday) morning, 301.4. The actual weights vary, of course, as I’ve been losing weight over the last 6 months. But the difference between the weights seems to be consistent and reproducible.

It is always possible that I am only noticing this on weeks where it is true, and I don’t notice “normal” Saturdays. So I am going to do something that I really don’t believe in: I am going to chart my daily weigh-ins. That’ll give me a feel for how my weight fluctuates during a given week, and I can aggregate that to see patterns over a number of weeks.
