As I stepped up onto the scale this morning, I still weighed in at 228.8 lbs! My first reaction was that my scale was broken again but it is brand new and has been accurate every single day since I have purchased it. After that thought passed through my mind, I continued to think back on the order of events from yesterday, trying to figure out how in the heck I managed to stay the same weight. I did eat healthy the entire day leading up to our main meal, so I didn't eat crappy the whole day. The meal was around 3:30pm yesterday and I didn't eat anything else for the rest of the night, except for a Weight Watcher's ice cream cone. And I did end up going to the gym last night after everything was over. Did these 3 factors play a role in me not gaining any weight after the largest meal I have eaten in a while? I honestly don't have an answer for anyone because I really don't know. It was a very pleasant surprise to me this morning. All I know is that I am not complaining at all. Now who knows if it ends up catching up to me tomorrow, which could happen. But for now I am going to stick to the mission and hope that I escaped yesterday without any weight gain at all.
I also did something this morning that I haven't done in a long time. I woke up at 7:00am to play basketball with a bunch of my friends, that I use to play with every Sunday morning. This was a huge accomplishment for me because I am not a morning person at all. Well, I am extremely happy that I weighed in the same this morning as I did before my "Friend's Thanksgiving" meal. Let's hope that I keep this momentum going into the next week!
