I got on the scale this morning and I fully expected to gain or maintain my weight after several days of overeating (even if it was on healthy foods like nuts & fruit and lean poultry, etc. I never ate junk food from the food stalls at the Seattle folklife festival.).
Smack me dumb, I LOST weight! 2.4 lbs!!!
I'm now 170.8 lbs!
(*Finally, I drop 2 lbs after losing half a pound to just under a pound for the last several weeks!)
I think it's largely because I did some big calorie cycling for several days (think 3-400 calories more than usual) and changed my exercise routine from after three days of high intensity weight lifting/elliptical in the gym to miles of walking in a hilly area either at a leisurely pace or a brisk pace for the rest of the week.
whatever it was that caused me to lose this much weight in one week, I'm thrilled!
(*And yes, I'm also learning my lessons here in being careful not to make overeating a habit & taking it easy here!! I'm a slow learner
but I am learning!)
