As most of you know, I keep the scales in the garage, hidden from view.
I get too hung up on the day to day number on the scales, and it shits me.
For ages and ages I have managed a pattern of weight loss that is lose, maintain, lose maintain, lose maintain.
For the past few weeks or so I have felt an uncomfortable snugness to my jeans.
I have felt a little fleshier around my chins, and spongier around my hips and bum.
It's been niggling away at my mind.
But I have still managed to avoid the scales...
As part of the school holiday routine, along with haircuts and dental checkups, I also measured the kids heights on their height charts today. They then also wanted to do "measuring" on the Wii Fit balance board. We don't ever discuss diets or weight loss around the kids, but they do see and hear the lovely husband on the Wii Fit enough to know it does "measuring".
They each have their own little Mii character set up too...it's as cute as.
So I added all of their new heights to their profiles, and let them measure and weigh themselves on the Wii.
And with great relief I quietly noticed all three of them were in the "healthy weight range". Charlie is at one end of the range and the Lexie at the other, with Olivia bang on average. Phew.
So, I then took the plunge too. And stepped on for some measuring of my own.
My worst suspicions were indeed founded - I have put on 3kg over the past couple of months.
I am not happy.
I have adjusted my weight loss ticker to show the gain. I don't want it to go backwards!
But, I guess it's just a sign that I need to review my activity, review my intake, and kick the last stage of this weight loss bizzo into touch...
