I forgot to post up how much I weighed last night. Well, turns out I didn't lose anything last week. I was 236 last Monday and was still 236 when I stepped on the scales yesterday. Not unexpected that I would go the occasional week without losing anything. Still....bollocks.

Out of curiosity, I stepped on the scales again this morning when I got out of the shower and I was 233. So in the space of 12 hours, I lost 3 pounds. So instead of watching what I eat and getting more exercise, apparently I just need to sleep more.

Biology is weird stuff.

WARNING - this is a pep talk, if you don't want to hear it and just want to feel crappy about the non-weight loss, then don't read. You probably know what I'm going to say, but here goes anyway:

Craig, you have been doing more exercise than you normally do right? Going to the gym and walking to work and such. You are likely gaining muscle, which weighs more than fat. In the long run the muscle will be more helpful in losing weight, burning more calories and increasing your metabolism.

For a better idea of how your body is changing for the better even though you may not be losing much weight you should measure yourself. Your neck, arms, chest, waist, thighs, etc. For sure you will see progress even when the scale doesn't register it.

Also, you should weigh yourself at the same time of the day, on the same day of the week. Our body weight can fluctuate on average 5 pounds a day depending on when/what you've eaten, how much water you've drank, if you've worked out, etc.

And even by making a real effort to eat better/less and exercise you are doing GREAT!

Hope you didn't mind the pep talk!
