Oh sigh. So I was up this weigh-in: up 1.5lbs for a new weight of 172.8lbs and a total loss of 78.8lbs. This always seems to happen when I reach a big weight loss.
I’m not going to kid myself or you – I know EXACTLY why I gained and I completely deserved it. This week’s weight gain has been brought to you by a whole stack of graham crackers eaten late one night, a whole box of crackers devoured, and a weekend of not one proper meal (other than a French toast breakfast) but rather filled with snacking, snacking, and more snacking.
Knowing why I gained doesn’t seem to be helping me I must say. Every week I gained I’ve known exactly why. The why is usually due to a couple mini-binges somewhere along the way. Usually when suddenly I just NEED breads – hence the graham cracker and cracker fiasco of this weekend. At least they were on 2 separate occassions (well technically 3, the box of crackers took two different sittings), although that doesn’t seem to console me right now. I need to find better ways of dealing with the cravings when they overcome me as I clearly cannot yet handle my trigger foods (which happens to be bread and bread products of any sort apparently!)
However, I did reach my exercise goals! I got in 38 activity points. This past week I: ran 5K three times (twice on a treadmill, once outside), did weight training twice, and walked 7K.
But now onto some better news! The winner of my one-year blogiversary giveaway of the One Smart Cookie cookbook! Thank you everyone!! I think I succeeded a bit in getting the lurkers out – I definitely know my site views spiked over the last few days 🙂
So there were a total of 11 comments and I used a random number generator to get this number:
Which makes Lauriebee our winner with her comment:
