I had already warned everybody that this week’s results probably wouldn’t be where I wanted them. I had two extra days off, attended my son’s 8th Grade promotion to high school, his friend’s high school graduation the next day, and Sunday was Father’s Day. Needless to say, there was a lot going on.

Now here’s where the fun begins.

Weekly Weigh-In for June 19, 2018 (Week 10): 234.8 lbs.
Loss/Gain for the week: +0.6 lbs.
Total lost: 10.0 lbs.
Weekly average loss (targeted goal: 1.14): 1.0 lbs. 

Sooooo…yeah. It’s a gain of just over a half-pound which I guess, all things considered, isn’t that bad with all the celebrating I did during those four days. But it also washes away my 0.6 pound loss over the previous two weeks which is a bit discouraging.

Adding to this was my lack of exercise on the weekend. We took our son to the driving range early Saturday morning to practice for his new high school’s golf team, and Sunday was Father’s Day and I rightfully stayed home with the family. And with Thursday and Friday away from work I didn’t do my usual lunchtime bike rides so it was an attack from both sides: little exercise and too much food.

With this, my weekly average loss dips to 1.0 pounds which is below my targeted goal of 1.14 pounds. What all this means is that it’s time to get back on it (as I did today) and stay there, plus practice greater self-control around food. I’m not making any excuses this week — I just messed up, plain and simple.

It’s a new week and a new start and I think we’re done with the celebrations for a bit. Time to hit that RESET button and get it in gear. Thanks for reading and see you next week, hopefully with better results!
