Week #18 Weigh in

September 3rd, 2013 Comments off

Day 127 of 185

Starting weight: 104.5kg

Week 17 weight: 92.4kg

Week 18 weight: 93.7kg

GAINED this week: 1.3kg

Lost since day 1: 10.8kg

Well running the Bridge to Brisbane was fun, and it burned a lot of calories but I ate those calories back and then some.

I reached 92.0kg on day in week #18 but that doesn’t matter because since then I’ve been gaining weight every day.

Maybe it’s an excess of sodium and I’m retaining a lot of water but there’s no doubt that most of the weight gain is body fat.

My weight graph shows that since starting the 6 month challenge I’ve been steadily losing weight until the beginning of August.  since then I’ve gained then lost then gained again.  That beautiful downward line is interrupted by a saddening peak at the end of the graph.

I have to turn this around.  I refuse to believe that I’m not capable of sticking with something for six months.  I know the cold and the injuries slowed me down but I’ve been fine for the last two weeks so why am I not losing?  Undocumented snacking (yes, I’ve eaten stuff that I didn’t log) and inaccurate logging, I think, are to blame.

It’s time to get super strict with my food intake.
