HealthyWage Challenge Day 5

Weight: 156.8

I was I about 6 lbs lighter when I weighed myself at my usual time (after breakfast) this morning. I was down to 156.8 lbs which would make for a total weight loss of 8.6 lbs to date. That was a huge loss overnight though; so, I think maybe it is because I had a few hours less sleep, or I didn’t have as much water. Anyway, I ate a HUGE supper; so, I think I’ll be back close to my starting weight tomorrow. On a better note, I ran a successful 5K race today in 22 minutes and 41 seconds.
