30 Days Without Sugar — Day 22 — Weigh in #3

Oh, c’mon! No more hormones, no more bloating, but the scale is still stuck. Obviously, I’ve shrunk enough for it to be visible to people to notice, but how on earth is the scale frozen to 180. I’ve picked up a new pair of pants that are size 11/13 which is a size smaller than I have been wearing, but the scale has me perplexed. Yes I know muscle weighs more than fat, but I’m not body building. By that I mean I’m not at the gym lifting weights or anything. Just some light cardio (my knee has its limits), strength training and mostly yoga. I couldn’t have packed on that much muscle in three weeks. There is still the question about the water weight around my injured knee, but I won’t know anything about that for a few days at least.  I have an appointment with the surgeon that worked on my other knee on Friday.

There is good news, though. In total, I have lost 4.6 pounds (I did that all in the first week. Whatever!), I have lost 2.25 inches in my chest, two inches around my waist, two inches around my hips, and finally a half an inch on my thighs. Still good news, all around, although I feel like I could be doing better. I see why people say to not pay attention to the scale, but the sad truth is I still weigh 180 pounds.  Read more
