The number on the scale is heading in the right direction...down.
However, the number isn't low enough today.
Yesterday when I step on the scale it reflects a total weight loss of 140 sticks of butter. Yay!
Today for the official weigh-in when I step on the scale it reads quite clearly that I've lost a total of 132 sticks of butter. Still "yay!"...but not quite so much.
Apparently I was pretty dehydrated yesterday or somehow I gained 8 entire sticks of butter in just 24 hours.
I guess the biggest disappointment is that if yesterday's weigh-in had proven to be true, that would mean that I am just .07 shy of being classified as "overweight" via BMI vs. "obese." So as of today I am still .37 away from hitting the 29.9 BMI that I want to hit.
But it also means that if I work out hard this week and stick as closely as I can to my eating plan, chances are that next week I'll be celebrating a BMI in the 20s instead of the 30s.
