I find both a bit confusing insofar as I lose track of how I’ve done in a calendar week. But that’s not my gripe, oh no.
Libra predicts – based on my goal weight – when I will reach that weight, going on current progress. Now, I’m the first to admit – bemoan, bewail – that my losses are paltry, but originally Libra briskly stated that the date to reach my goal weight was “N/A”. I rolled my eyes, decided it only worked in shorter time parameters, admitted that I too was unsure I’d reach that point, and dismissed the faint sting.
After a few days however, it clearly felt that it had sufficient data. 2030 was its estimate. I did that cartoon thing where my eyeballs spring out of my head. 2030? I guess I probably will still care then – I even accept that I will be on some kind of diet for my whole life, but I’d rather hoped that this would be from a point of being slightly happier with my weight – from a few stone lighter, at any rate.
A few days on and it came up with September 2017. Still felt like a life sentence. I’ve worked really hard this week (read: starve days and well-behaved diet type 1 days (week days) and type 2 days (Saturday and Sunday)) – after seeing a small initial spring back up after the type 1 day, post starve day (only ¾ lb the next day and then ½ lb the following day) and then quite a big jump when we went out for dinner (nearly 3lbs! I didn’t even eat much!), I’ve been very mindful of getting my stats to a more reasonable place. Having lost a bit over the weekend (2lbs - a bit of an achievement, I thought) Libra ‘rewards’ me with a new stat of June 2019. I seem to be going in the wrong direction.
Overall, last week I lost 1.5lbs. Unlike my apps, I thought this was okay. I need to find somewhere to record the weekly WIs – as well as the daily blips – now I’ve cancelled my SW online membership. I think I only managed one starve day last WI period though – I’ll have done two for the next WI. I’m going to keep on with the daily WIs to see if I can see a pattern. It does this ‘trend’ thing which I don’t understand – it’s consistently heavier than I actually weigh – which I am hoping will suddenly make sense. I’m currently rather heavier than my last WI (1 ¼ lb) and with two days to go until the next one.
Still, today is another (starve) day. As Scarlett might have said had she not had an 18” waist.
