Accountability +5.2lb - Really???

Not sure what happened?
Consumed a daily of 26 points (through mostly running in addition to weighs- I push myself when I workout as my legs are still sore ).
Earned and consumed 34 activity points.  Used 26 of my weeklies.
Is my home scale broken?
I did eat a late dinner and consumed allot of points yesterday.  Ate a few more pieces of fruit than usual.  Does that matter?
Have I retained a ton of water??
I did drink a million cups of tea yesterday (unsweetend and used cough drops) as I have a sore throat/cold.

According to my nutrition class it's all about having a calorie deficit.  If your body burns more calories than the amount of calories consumed you will have a deficit and you will lose weight.  Perhaps I should try counting calories?  One more thing to make time for??? (I'll think on it)

I'll see what happens on the scale tomorrow night at my meeting and next week.  Perhaps I'll try not using my weeklies this coming week?

Anyone out there with thoughts?

  1. This is just a thought, so I'll throw it out there. Maybe you are at your ideal weight for you.
    I am not in great shape but I'm not overweight and have never been. I am in the normal weight range according to charts. But I never fluctuate. I don't have a digital scale or anything, I have a $10 scale that says I'm 5 lbs. less than the Dr. office says I am (but I am fully clothed and have shoes on) when I'm weighed at the dr.'s.
    I think you are a true success and everybody has different body types and ideal weights. I really don't know what happened but I think you're doing great.

  3. I would concur with Bridget...I've been about 140-145 this last entire year...it would be awesome to lose another 10, but I've lost 40lbs and I'm in the 'normal' range as Bridget said for herself. Last month I decided to calorie count for the FIRST TIME EVER and I didn't lose hardly anything...and it was a pain in the butt to calorie count and it took a lot of extra time to log, so I did it for 30days and now I'm done with it! This week I lost and I didn't calorie count ; ) Go figure!!

  4. Also...forgot to mention that everything I've heard/read says it's all about nutrition and weight/strength training...so I cut my cardio WAAAAAAY back b/c I was killing myself trying to run/walk/elliptical/bike X amount of miles/week. So it's working for me.

  5. Thank you so much for your thoughts Mid! It's funny you mentioned weight training because I just started getting back into that again as of last week. Back when the lbs flew off I was doing some hard weight training workouts in addition to cardio. I need to kick it up a notch!
