ok so I'm an idiot - again

I seem to remember something like this happening before. Being all annoyed about a rut and stuck on a number and over analyzing (my favorite) and excusing (my least favorite) that number. Come up with a plan for next week, and wake up with a loss. Well family, I've had a loss. Now don't I look like a tool? Well at least it's a skinny tool!
YIPPEE! scale said 140.6. New all time low! How it got there I'll never know as I have been pretty bad on the eating front (volume not content) and only exercised once this week (WTF?). But this time I'm not going to analyze it, I'm just going to take it and be happy. So yay! It's a 1.4 lb loss from monday. I think. Wow that was extreme. Whatever.
So this is setting me up great. i'm still planning on doing my new kick ass plan when I get home from this biking thing so that's only 10.6 lbs to go. Carolyn mentioned how she's thinking of setting up a challenge of getting to goal by Christmas (14 weeks!) If anybody has around 10-20 lbs they'd like to lose then it's an achievable goal right? (Sorry Carolyn if I put words in your mouth, I'll totally organize this challenge if you want.) So if anybody wants to join a Christmas Challenge and get to goal by or before Christmas, please leave a comment and I'll see what I can come up with. If you'd just like to get to a mini-goal by then too that's great. Let me know how many pounds you want to lose by Christmas in your comment. Official challenger or not, it's interesting to see our goals!

Hey Randi,

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Congrats on your loss - you must be doing something right, so good for you for not over-analyzing.
140 is AWESOME! Congrats!

I'll let you know about the challenge. Gotta mull over that one...

Congrats on 140.6! (More importantly, good job on just taking it and being happy!)

YAY for seeing the 1-4-0. I hope I see a similar number soon :)

I'm also thinking about the challenge...I might be too slow of a loser to participate and feel motivated...

Great blog! It motivates me to keep moving towards my goal of 130!

phitnphat had made a post about taper weeks. Maybe a week off, or a more mellow week, was just what your body needed. I would LOVE to be at goal by Christmas - it could happen. That's 17lbs.

great job. Don't analyse just run with it. I think that is a number I would love to see. Great job

Yay you for your scale victory! The first time I went off plan for a weekend trip (ate sensibly, but didn't diet), I came back to a great weight loss. I think your body just needs a break every once and awhile.

Count me in for the challenge-I want to lose 11 more pounds.

Yay! Big Kudos on seeing the 140!

I'm so proud of you!! Yay!!

I think I'd like to join the Christmas Challenge - but I'm not quite sure what my goal is. Probably 20 lbs by Christmas. (if not sooner!!) :o)

Have a Great Monday & Keep Up the Good Work!!

WOOHOO that is a great loss. Sometimes our bodies just finally decide to listen to our brains tellint them to LET GO of the weight ;). Great job!
