Everything You Need to Know.
Friday morning I woke up, weighed myself, and was happy to have lost another half a pound bringing my weight loss to seven pounds in ten days of tracking my calories and workouts on MyFitnessPal.com. I felt great, my body full of lean proteins, my carbs kept to the appropriate amount, my fats coming from healthy foods. That weigh in also put me within a half pound of a new number in the tens column, a number I haven’t seen in a very long time. So I woke up Saturday energized and excited to check my progress, ready to see that number. Only when I looked down, I saw the exact same number as the day before. No big deal. I was trying some new workouts and Sunday would bring that elusive new number. So Saturday I danced and Zumba’d and Sunday morning….the same number. So yesterday I played Just Dance 2 for about 40 minutes and did Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. I tracked my food. I even got outside and built a slide to attach to the playset. I was really ready to see that number this morning. I jumped out of bed, ran to the scale and…
My weight was exactly the same as it was on Friday.
I headed to Twitter to ask in the #mamavation tag if anyone knew what might be happening, and that’s when someone pointed out the curse of week two. Anyone who watches The Biggest Loser knows that at the first weigh in most contestants post huge numbers. Then week two rolls around and not only do some contestants not lose weight at all, but some actually gain. Week three always puts them back on track, so for now, I’m just hanging in there, nose to the grindstone. I’m still feeling and seeing changes from my now almost flat back to the jeans I was able to wear for the first time in years over the weekend. So here’s to week three!
And man, I hope I see that elusive number soon…
