And today I weighed in at 200.6. The only difference? Sleep. I'm the kind of person who needs around 9 hours of sleep. If I'm getting that much sleep regularly I don't get sick--and I guess I would lose weight faster. Argh. How can I get enough sleep during the weekdays? I'm not sure, but I'm going to have to if I really want to lose weight.
Has anyone else noticed if sleep makes a difference for them? I read in the Reader's Digest a few years ago what a difference sleep makes for weight loss--which is why people who have sleep apnea often can't lose weight and even gain weight.
So my goal for this week is to continue staying in the calorie range I've set up for myself, continue exercising, AND get to bed at 8 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I can't on Tuesday and Thursday because of Taekwondo. Hopefully if I get to bed at 8 then I'll be asleep at nine. We'll see.
