I had gained close to 2lbs since my last weigh-in for the BLC. Aunt Flo had stopped by and apparently water retention during that time can make you gain 1-10lbs.. 1-7 is completely normal. Today.. no aunt flo and I step on the scale. I lost the water retention weight.. and more.. seemingly overnight. I guess I had lost weight and gained more than 2lbs due to water retention. So today I am making sure I get my water and am going for my walk even though it looks crappy as hell outside. I am so close to leaving the 340's it's unreal. The sooner I reach 299 the better :-)
I'm going to buy my reward for 299 early.. it's a nook. I'm not buying personal books for it until I reach my goal.. but I'm tired of lugging around so many school books during the school day.. and texts books are so much cheaper on nook than they are hard-cover. When I reach my goal I'll start buying my personal books so it can become something I WANT instead of just something I NEED
I think I have a weight perception problem. I see people weighing 200-250lbs and they don't look big to me. They look like they're on the big side of a healthy weight. "Fluffy" is how I perceive them. I guess it's because I' used to being so much bigger than them. I used to be 409lbs. That weight isn't reflected on my slide because I started THIS journey at 360-something. Also.. When I look at a before and after pic I see the weight loss.. but not when I look in a mirror? Is my weight perception that messed up?
