Weigh in Wednesday: am I on a string? #weightin #weightloss

Have you ever felt like a yo-yo? I'm pretty sure my body is doing its best impersonation. I had a really great weigh-in two days ago and a less great (but still good) weigh in today.

I'm pretty sure a lot of last week's awful gain was water but I'm still not liking the number on the scale. I know that no one cares but me, however, I have 6 weeks until my birthday and I'm going to try my hardest to make it back into the 130s by then.

Starting Weight (11-28-12): 153.6
Last week: 148.2
This week: 144.8
Change: down 3.4
Total change: down 8.8

So, I have 6 weeks to lose 5 pounds. You'd think it shouldn't be that difficult, but I also have a bunch of stressful and/or fun events in the next 6 weeks as well. My triathlon is in less than 3 weeks and I'm feeling completely unprepared, but now our weather is crap and I can't get out for any open water swims or bike rides. My dad is having major back surgery in Chicago on 8/1 and my 25th HS reunion is that same weekend (still haven't decided whether I'm going to the reunion - I'm thinking of boycotting the $120 a couple charge). Then my twins turn 16 the day after their birthday is my 200 mile relay.  Pretty sure losing weight in the middle of all that is going to be next to impossible.  Maybe my goal should just be to not gain any weight.

It's going to be a crazy 6 weeks. Here's hoping I make it.

(As a random side-note, my heel has been hurting since my 10k last weekend. It's in the heel itself - not where planar fasciitis would be. Any ideas?)

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
