The WW Weigh in Ritual

  •  Make sure no watch is on. 
  • Move the phone and wallet to coat. 
  • Keys can't be in a pocket.
  • Don't want to weigh that belt.
  • Make sure that you remembered to go to the bathroom beforehand.
  • Shoes off.
  • When the formerly fat person working the desk says you may step on the scale, you do. 
  • Make sure there is no air in your lungs because Physics told you that air weighs something when you were in 12th grade (perhaps the only thing you remember about AP Physics except shooting the laser at people across the quad).
  • Breathe a sigh of relief when they tell you that you lost 5 lbs.
  • Now comes the true irony. They say you should consider exercising some or a little more. You scream to yourself "I'M TRAINING FOR AN IRONMAN" then you demurely explain that exercise isn't your problem. They look at you confused.
  • Later go home and don't wimp out on your bike trainer workout since you have to do the weigh in ritual again next week.

A few weeks back, I finally didn't take off my shoes when my doctor weighed me. I set my coat and purse down, but didn't remove anything else. Part of me was still annoyed with the difference between my morning naked weight and the doctor's scale though. Hang in there - it will all come in good time.

Since it is obviously not exercise, what do you see as your top two or three downfalls in the weight loss dept? Eating on the fly? Drinking too much of anything other than water? Just simply too much of stuff that would be fine in proper portions? Sweets? Salty/fatty crap? For me it is the veggie vacancy from my diet (as in there are few) and soda (though gave it up for Lent) and eating out in general. Need to work on healthier choices all around, but especially breakfast.

I am starting to question if one can train for an ironman and lose weight at the same time. It seems like a easy conclusion, but I am finding out other wise
