July 31, 2008 9:15 A.M. Weight: 345.0 lbs.
Yesterday, it looked like I was going to miss my monthly goal by just 0.6lb, even allowing for my normal weight loss.
So last night, I was going to just have a salad or something, but when I got to the kitchen, I was actually quite hungry.
‘Oh well, its only a target,’ I thought, and ended up having a pretty good dinner – grilled chicken, and steamed potatoes and peas, a low-fat desert, and lots of fruit.
So today was the moment of judgement., I got up, pulled on my joggers, and, picking up the polo shirt I wore last night, stepped on the scales. I was 0.2lb over!
Then I thought – ‘this polo is actually quite a thick one’, so dumped it in the laundry basket, put on a light Cotton Traders T-shirt, and stepped on the scales again.
The scales were alternating between 344.8 and 345, so I made my goal weight! It’s a bit cheeky that my success depended on what shirt I wore, but, to be fair, the Cotton Trader shirts are what I normally wear, day to day, so it’s no foul.
