what would you do?
I hope that this is the right thread to put this is..anyway, I have been doing a weight loss "contest" at my local YMCA...called "The biggest Loser"....it started in May and ends November 3rd..as of two weeks ago I had lost 13 pounds..doing quite well...even better that I had thought..I was exercising 5-6 days a week and eating quite sensibly, but not perfect..but something happened two weeks ago..I gained 1 pound (believe me-it WAS not the end of the world-so I thought) and then two more pounds last week. I only went to the Y three times last week, and have been eating like *...Now, for the question...You are supposed to weigh in every week..but the "rules" say that if you miss three weigh ins you are out of the "final" contest...I have never been a fan of weighing every week, but have come to understand the helpfullness of it...but on the other hand, I can feel myself comming "out" of whatever "funk" I have been in, and any more gains could send me spireling down...I'm thinking that if I get busy this week, not weigh in, and then weigh in next week with a loss from RIGHT NOW, I may come out of this swinging...I hope this makes since...So, is what I am thinking right on with what you would do, or would you weigh in tomorrow, "suck it up" and go from there? Any suggestions would be great! Oh, I have lost (as of two weeks ago!) lost 30 pounds since January...only (?!) 45 to go...
