I weigh exactly the same this morning as I did last Friday morning (148.0). I'll admit this is disappointing, because I've been doing the walking:
August 22 - 11,739 steps
August 23 - 14,311
August 24 - 13,185
August 25 - 12,710
August 26 - 11,239
August 27 - 11,329 + surely at least another 1,000 steps without the pedometer*
August 28 - 12,428
However, there is some cause not to be upset. For one thing, on the 25th, after a weekend that involved a birthday, hence cake, I weighed in at 149.0, so I'd gained back a pound.
There was left-over cake. Yes, I had some. Also, I think a baked potato is, for me, the equivalent of a piece of cake.
*On Wednesday, we had company for dinner, which meant dessert. I went with fruit, but also made cookies. I was sweating like a marathon runner on a hot day during the prep, so broke down and had a Coke. Not a good idea, that. Should have gone with juice, or water would have been even better. Worse, I had lemonade, too. Calorie double-whammy.
To prevent myself from eating more cookies, I had one the next day and froze the rest. I'll see how that works out.
All in all, I think I can be happy I didn't gain more weight. And I've discovered a bonus I hadn't really thought about, but makes perfect sense: Shins o' Steel!
