Welp.

Turns out I was a little less ready than I thought. Going to hit the gym today through Thursday and have my real initial weigh-in Saturday. I'm down but not out...I'll be back in a few days.

I agree with Katy.

Did you not like your weight on Sat and that's why you're going to have a "real initial weigh-in" next Saturday? I think that is a co-out. Just own what the situation is right now and move forward from there.

Also, you know that the gym is not the issue (well not entirely and not THE main issue). Your food choices have WAY more to do with that number on the scale than any exercise you can possibly squeeze in between now and Thursday. I weigh myself daily because it helps me see patterns, and I find that my weight goes UP after workouts (sore muscles retain water).

Beside, if that number is larger when you start, it will just be that much more impressive when you reach your goal.

Honestly, what happened is I had friends in town, went to bed late, and didn't get up for my meeting. I didn't even weigh myself in at home. I think if I continue on how I've been doing this week I won't gain when I go in this Saturday, but still. That's two weeks I could've been losing.

Bleh I know, I know. I preach the "80% of weight loss is diet!" mantra but then stuff my face and get upset at myself. So dumb. It really makes no sense. And yes, I have the water-retention thing too, which is why I never work out on Friday nights, aka the night before weigh-in, lol.

You're right. You guys are so right, and so wonderful. Thank you.
