While I'm still not entirely satisfied with that loss, it's at least better than what I've been doing the last couple of weeks. Truthfully, I don't know how to explain this week's loss any better than I could explain the last couple of weeks of gaining or not losing.
I'm not doing anything different.
Right now, I'm most definitely feeling like stepping on the scale is like buying a winning lottery ticket. There's no rhyme or reason to it. Either you get lucky and hit the jackpot, or you don't, but there's not a great deal you can do to affect the outcome.
Later this week I'll be going on vacation, so I may not post as often. I'm bringing an Internet-enabled cell phone, so I'll try to blog from the road, but I can't guarantee anything, as I'm not even sure where I'm going has cell phone or Internet coverage.
If you don't hear me, don't worry -- I won't have fallen down a gopher hole. I'll just be visiting my sister who lives in Nowheresville.
We'll see how the diet goes. Nowheresville is about 1,100 miles from where we live, so we'll have two days on the road. There will be three of us (me, SO and The Kid) jammed into the bench seat of my truck as we roll down the road with our RV. I'm hoping it will be fun, but two long days trapped in the truck with The Kid asking, "are we there yet?" every two minutes sounds less fun.
And, of course, vacations on a dieter's nightmare. My sister is a good cook and I'm sure she'll come up with all sorts of tempting treats. I won't be totally surprised if I gain everything back that I've lost.
We are taking our fancy scale with us. Hopefully that will keep things under control at least a little bit.
