Judging by this week’s numbers, you’d think my weight has remained steady since last week. My BMI has gone from 23.22 to 23.36, my weight from 153.2 lbs. to 154.1 lbs., and my average Wii Fit Age has moved from 33.7 to 29.7.
Sounds alright, right? Well, thanks to the magic of regular weigh-ins, I can tell you something very strange occurred this week. My October 11th weight was a lifetime high 158.5 lbs, a mighty 5 pound gain from the week before. I’ve luckily come back down from that in the days that have followed, but it was a wake-up call to be sure.
So what happened? Maybe my clothes were a little heavier, or the Wii Fit board was showing signs of inaccuracy, but I don’t think so. I blame my diet. In an effort to add some variety to my very dull food intake, I recently switched my staple from rice to… hot dogs. I interpret this week’s Wii Fit findings as an indication that that was a bad idea.
