Wednesday Weigh-In 20110720

No change from last week -- very strange.

I once underwent a physical for a life insurance policy. The nurse asked my weight, so I said "160 plus or minus five pounds." She mentioned that it wasn't a good sign if your weight changes a lot. I let the matter drop, but I thought she was clueless. There are a lot of factors that determine weight even assuming you're not trying to gain or lose weight. They are hydration (you can weigh five pounds less just due to strenuous exercise), seasonal effects, scale accuracy, whether you've, um, voided fully. Then you have athletes who have their training & competition weight versus their "off-season" weight.

So anyway, I was thoroughly astounded this morning to find that my three numbers this week are identical to the previous set of numbers.

Waist = 38.25"
Height = 5' 9"
