So I wrote my last update all discouraged, but then when I actually did my weigh out for week 8 I lost 1.5 pounds and was the group winner for the week. Hurrah! I'm not going to lie. It feels good to see results.
I'm starting to wonder if weighing in weekly is too much though. If I did it again, I think I'd alternate weigh-ins one week and measurements the next. Seeing my measurements shrink is actually more motivating to me than weight. There are so many variables that can change weight. What I really want to do is lose body fat and girth is a much better measurement of that.
This project ends March 26th, but I'll still be looking to lose another 5-7 lbs, so maybe I can test that out on a 6 week challenge.
FYI, my gimp shoulder is aching today. I think a storm or some kind of pressure change is coming.
