If you are friends with me on Facebook, you know that I have completed a thirty day challenge which consisted of exercising for thirty minutes a day for thirty days, except on Sunday. This was tougher than I thought it would be. Sometimes you just don't feel it, if you know what I mean, but I stuck to it and now I am working on the next thirty day challenge.
Since I started on a Tuesday, that is the day I do my weigh ins to see if I am making any progress. I swore to myself I would only weigh in once a week, so as not to get discouraged by a lack of progress or even backwards progress due to what time of the month it is. I know all you women out there who have ever worked your behind off and wound up gaining two pounds, know exactly what I'm talking about here.
So I have been giving weigh-ins a lot of thought and I have decided that the proper weigh in procedure should go as follows, be totally naked, first thing in the morning, after fasting for many hours, don't brush your teeth before hand, you might swallow a little bit of water and invalidate your progress, and always lean on the towel bar for stability. If the towel bar breaks off you can always replace it, the important thing is that the scale shows a drop in poundage. Of course, you have to be realistic if it shows a drop of twenty pounds or more in a week, a little less pressure on the towel bar may be considered....then again maybe not. What is your weigh in procedure? Anyone have any better ideas? I am open to any and all suggestions.
