Got to face the music with a Weight Watchers weigh in sometime before Thursday, the last day of the month. This morning the home scale read 175.5. Now, here's where the fun begins.
1) My goal weight is 177, but I am allowed a 2 lb margin, so anything below 179.1 finishes in the money.
2) My home scale reads 3 lbs less than WW. No way around that. This makes my WW weight 178.5.
3) At home, I am buck naked (at least when I weigh myself and when we have the in-laws to dinner). It is impossible to wear clothing that weighs less than a pound. WW = 179.5. Normal clothing weighs about 2.5 lbs (WW 181), so weigh in in normal clothing is right out!
4) I weigh myself at home first thing in the morning. I usually weigh in at WW after work. After work weight is usually 1 lb more than wake up weight. WW = 180.5.
So here's the plan. Hit 174 on the morning scale by Wednesday morning. Pack shorts and T-shirt to put on after work. Weigh in after work at the 6PM Weds meeting.
Any questions?Isn't it cheating to weigh in wearing shorts?
Mind your own business! Maybe I just feel like going barefoot and topless in a very small pair of running shorts as a fashion choice.Why not weigh in at a meeting first thing in the morning?
Feels like cheating and is a pain in the butt.Isn't this "cheating" definition rather subjective?
YesWhat if you are still a few lbs short Wednesday after work?
I could do a quick run. That will usually take off 1.5 lbs. It's water weight, but good enough.Oh come on now. That's got to be cheating!
You never go running after work? You really should; it's very refreshing.Wouldn't it be better to just let the numbers come out however they do honestly and then take whatever corrective action is required? Wouldn't that be the more responsible, long-term view?
YesSo that's what you're going to do?
