Today was my first weigh in of 2016.
I like to weigh in on a Thursday. It's far enough away from last weekend that you've had the chance to reverse any gain but it also allows you to get a low day under your (capacious) belt before launching into next weekend.
In order to give myself a starting point, I gritted my teeth and weighed myself last Thursday. Which, if you'll recall was New Years' Eve. I then proceeded to have an extremely indulgent lunch and an evening of profligacy (turns out that my brother makes a very good chocolate salted caramel tart and that I like Parma Violets when they are in cocktail form).
Still, I started tracking on Monday which clearly sent my body into a profound state of shock since I stand before you delighted to report a 2.6 lb loss on last week. It's a start!
Loss / (gain) this week: 2.6 lbs
Loss / (gain) in 2016: 2.6 lbs
