The Weigh-In Week 76

224.2. That is what it said on the scale this morning. "Technically" a gain of 1.8 pounds.

I say "technically" because I feel that I am with in my rights to actually claim a .2 pound loss.

Hear me out.

By my calculations I ate approx. 2 to 2.5 pounds of rice last night. We went out to a Thai restaurant with a group of friends. I ordered Curry. I love Curry. There was lots of sauce. It required lots of rice.

When it comes to Curry I am a charter member of the clean plate club.

So let's say 2.5 pounds of rice. I probably digested a half pound of that. Which leaves 2 pounds of rice sitting in my tummy.

1.8 - 2 = -.2.

Ta-dah! A .2 pound loss for the week.

What?!!!? You're not buying it?

Come on its Christmas! Where's your generous holiday spirit.

Merry Christmas Everybody!
I hope you all have a happy and joyous holiday.
See you in a week!

Guess How Much I weigh Contest - Week 76

I was planing on letting everyone know that I'm going on Holiday Hiatus until after the New Year, but I think it's pretty obvious that I have been on Holiday Hiatus for the last two weeks already. There will still be a contest and weigh-in each week, but don't expect any other updates until after January 3rd.

That leaves us with this weeks weigh-in. This has been a good week. As of right now I weigh exactly what I weighed last Friday. Considering how much holiday junk food has been shoved in front of my face this week, I think that's a pretty good accomplishment.

Normally I would guarantee a loss tomorrow morning. But, I have big plans tonight. Laura and I are heading out on the town with our "crew" for our annual holiday get together. Which means I won't be eating my normal reserved Thursday night meal. And thus the non-guarantee on tomorrow's weigh-in. I think a loss could still be possible but even if I have a small gain due to a rich and delicious meal out I know it will just be a little blip...gone by Saturday.

Plus I plan on kicking it extra hard on the treadmill this afternoon!

Step right up, step right up.
Guess how much I weigh and win a fabulous prize.

To Recap:
Every Thursday I give you my stats for the week and you guess what you think the scale will say on Friday morning. The winner is the first person who guesses my weight / weight loss for the week without going over or the person who is closest without going over. Go ahead and click on comments at the bottom of this post and leave your guess.

I will post the winner when I post my weight on Fri. morning. If we get ten or more guesses I will have a prize for the winner.

Let the guessing begin. Good Luck!
