Weigh In Wednesday: Week Twenty Four


Starting weight: 259.8
Last Week: 261.2
This week: 260.2
Weight lost this week: -1
Total weight lost: +0.4

While writing last week's post I realized that I've been doing this weekly weigh in series for almost six months. When I started, I was at 259.8. When I weighed in on Monday I was at 260.2, which means I've basically maintained for the past six months and I'm totally okay with that. My weight has fluctuated, obviously, but no more than five pounds above or below that starting weight. I'm gonna go ahead and consider that a success.

I calorie counted last week with MyFitnessPal and I'm calorie counting again this week. I'm also weighing in every day which I know tends to go against most conventional wisdom but I am seeing it more as data points along a spectrum. (My weight for these posts still come from my Monday weigh in which I'm counting as my "official" weight.) I like collecting and analyzing data and see the scale as a feedback tool. How do the choices I make the day before affect the scale the next morning? Our weight naturally fluctuates so I'll be able to watch trends -- does it go up during certain days of the week or, ahem, times of the month? (There might be color coding involved in that last one.)

DATA IS FUN.

Love from the ashes,
