So I’m a member of the camp that thinks you should weigh yourself daily so that you can see how your weight fluctuates and see what makes you retain weight and what doesn’t, etc
But okay. So one day I weighed myself and it came out 114.5. The last time I weighed myself before that (two days earlier), I was 116, so that shocked me. I went back on a couple of times before breakfast to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. But it was totally right!
The next day I weighed myself and I was 116 again, which was disappointing but expected (I’d had a big dinner the night before and there hadn’t been any…outtake). But now it’s been three days, and my weight has gone steadily up! I was 116.5 yesterday and 117 today. It’s just really weird. I’m wondering where my real weight is right now. Maybe it’s just weekend bloat?
Just goes to show you, the scale doesn’t tell the whole truth. Anyone else experience this?

I feel so good in my old clothes. I love getting dressed up now, whereas before it was more like “okay, what do I own that’s not going to look like shit on me.”

- I work on a political campaign. It takes up most of my time.
- I’m an incoming sophomore at Brown, majoring in International Relations.
- My dog is my favorite being on this earth.
- I’m half Dutch and god forbid I ever go to Holland on this low-fat diet because Dutch food is better than you can imagine. All made with shittons of cheese and whole milk and butter.
- I have a weirdly good relationship with my parents but I can’t wait to be living at school again (though I CAN wait to be back on meal plan…).
- My favorite collegeholiday is Halloween. I can’t wait to be super skinny and skanky this year.
- It’s my future roommate’s birthday today!
- I have Bon Iver tickets. SO EXCITED.
- My dad runs marathons. I want to run a half with him next spring.
- My whole office is obsessed with google docs and won’t stop talking about its awesomeness

Nah. I’d really rather look healthy and skinny, not like SUPER athletic.

I was 116 when I left for college and 124 when I came home. I wanted to be 115 when I went back.
I just hit 114.5, 4 weeks ahead of schedule. I don’t know how it happened, since i’ve just been eating 1200 calories a day and working out, which for someone my size should not lead to super rapid weight loss, but it did!
CELEBRATION TIME. I get to buy myself cute running shorts now!

Bad Body Image Days: I actually sometimes watch some Biggest Loser or Extreme Makeover Weight Loss or something to comfort myself that I’m not that big. Then I work out so that I can feel like I’m doing something to get closer to reaching my ideal body!
Lazy Days: I usually try to just take a walk and watch TV while I’m on the treadmill or the stationary. I’m having one of those bloaty period days where I just want to lie in bed and eat, but even though I ate a lot, I’m going to at least exercise a little.

This is a dumb/weird question. Not really. I mean I want to be as skinny as girls in the magazines, but honestly, I’m losing weight to motivate myself to live healthier for my heart. It’s easier to be on a heart diet if you’re seeing immediate results in your weight.

I was about 110 when I was still doing ballet and in the best shape of my life, but I was also not really fully developed into my adult body (I was about 15). Once I quit, I gained about 6 pounds, but I also lost a ton of muscle weight, so I was a lot softer, just because I wasn’t working out two hours a day (but I was eating like I was). I was still happy with my body, because I looked feminine and whatnot, but then in college, the crappy cafeteria food, alcohol, and birth control pills caused me to gain 8 more pounds. It wasn’t pretty.
I’m about a pound away from my high school graduation weight, but I’m hoping to get down to my old ballet weight, or at least to that percent body fat. I’m just sick of having tummy bloat.
