Weekly weigh-in: -1.4 pounds
Pounds to go: 48
Funny story. I weigh myself weekly as soon as I get back from my morning swim. I didn't think about it last week, just did it and grumped about my crappy loss. This morning I stepped on the scale, and again, crappy loss.
Cue long, dramatic sigh.
I took a shower, dried off, wrapped my hair up in a towel and a little light bulb when on over my head. When I get out of the pool I don't dry my hair. At all. I live super close to the pool, so it drips a whole bunch, but it's just going to get wet anyway, once I shower and I don't care. I don't have super long hair, but it's thick and it soaks up some water.
Just for shits and giggles, I towel dried my hair, and weighed again.
Son of a biscuit, the loss almost DOUBLED! I went from a .8 loss to a 1.4 pound loss!
So now I know for next week. Take a shower first, towel dry, THEN weigh yourself.
This is the first week where I have made it to swimming each morning. It's the third day of that, and I have to tell you, my arms are reminding me I am not used to this crap. I carried my coffee cup into the office this morning and my arm trembled.
Midway through the week! Hopefully we all survive!
