If ever there was a week when I had low expectations for weigh-in day, this was it. I'm staffing another Wood Badge course (I'll explain this in a separate post for my non-Scouting friends) and weekend #1 started on Thursday, which left me with two free nights for exercise. Even worse, the meals served at Wood Badge were really good, and snacks and candy were plentiful.
My job as Scribe involved lots of keyboard time (working on the daily newsletter and printing various forms and handouts), paparazzi duty (taking random shots of the participants), and making appearances at all the group assemblies, but mostly lots of keyboard time.
I returned home from Wood Badge on Sunday evening, and chose to postpone my weigh-in until Monday morning. I always do weigh-ins first thing in the morning. Besides, I was in no hurry to experience disappointment.
Imagine my surprise when I actually lost weight. Granted, it was a very small amount, but at least it wasn't a gain. Yay me!!
I never did get around to taking measurements, but I will make sure to do that next weekend. I have one more Wood Badge weekend (in three weeks) plus preparation, and I'm hoping that I can make it through without gaining any weight. I'll be watching what I eat, exercising as often as I can, and keeping my fingers crossed.
My numbers for the week:
Pounds lost (-) or gained (+) this week: -0.2
Total weight loss: 12.0
Inches lost (-) or gained (+) this week: ?
Total inches lost: 22.5
