Success -- sort of

I wanted to hover right at 174.5 this week, so I could take the last couple of pounds off in the last weel of the month. So I weighed 175.0 this morning, but it was and up, then down again week.

Mon: 176.0
Tues: 176.5
Wed: 177.5
Thur: 175.0
Fri: 175.0

Here's the wierd part. Wednesday afternoon, I decided to say the hell with it and got a double cheeseburger and fries. Next day I lost 2 lbs. Sometimes it just seems random.

Now at 175, I could easily go for a run tomorrow morning and then weigh in at 10 , and I'd be pretty close. I think I'm going to wait though and see if I can float down to 172 in the next 6 days. I seem to have set 178.5 as my upper limit during the month. I'd like to reset the number to be 175.

Off topic: I have found no record of another runner who has done the triple like Zatopek.

Thanks for the introduction :)

Congrats on hovering where you wanted to. And don't sweat the days. The fluctuations from day to day can be caused by many things.

It does sound tempting though that you lost 2 lbs by eating a cheeseburger. Do I smell a new fad diet? :D
