So I just completed the 30 day Hot Yoga Challenge at the local Yoga studio
But, before I went, I weighed in at WW. Not my usual day (1 day early), wearing not my usual clothes but pretty similar, not my usual time. And I'm UP 1.5 lbs!!! WTF????
I know, I know, water/salt/time of day and so on, but STILL aggrevating.
And I am zigging and zagging around the 170s like CRAZY -- for June: 176 lbs, 176.5 lbs, 173.5 lbs, 175 lbs.
Coinciding, of course, with my personal experience that when I UP the exercise, my weight loss slows/stops.
I KNOW, it doesn't make any sense, but this is my personal experience.
Anyways, so I weigh in at WW and you wouldn't BELIEVE the conversation between me and the WW Receptionist:
WW: -in a hushed tone -
You're not very successful this week
....you're UP 1.5 lbs.
me: Yes. Thanks. I wish I knew what was going on, because I'm doing the program.
WW: Are you exercising?
me: YES. I do Hot Yoga every single day. I have for all of June. I do this for 90 minutes a day. Every day.
WW: Well, are you eating the exercise points?
me: I have an extra banana. But I find that if I eat all of them AND my flex points, I lose absolutely nothing.
WW: You HAVE to eat them. Everybody else does. It works for everyone else on the program. What makes you think you are so special?
me: I'm NOT special. I just find that this is what I have to do to lose weight. And it's been working up until now.
WW: Well, YOUR ideas aren't
WORKING very well for you. What do you do for exercise? Have you thought of going for a gentle walk at lunch?
me: -fighting urge to leap over the counter and smash her in the face with my WW points calculator -
I do HOT. YOGA. EVERY. DAY. 90 minutes. 1 and a half hours. EVERY. DAY. Are you familiar with Bikram's Yoga?
WW: No. But you need to do more than just sit around all day
me: THANKS. I'm not going to worry about it. I'll discuss this with my regular leader next week. BYE.
O.M.G.!!! As if today wasn't bad enough!!!
Have a better day than me, chickies!!!
