Weekly Weigh In

I can't believe it's Wednesday again! This week seems to be going by quite quickly.

I stepped on the scale this morning, and as for today, there was not additional weight loss. I've been fluctuating that past few days though, so it didn't surprise me too much.

BUT, I decided to measure myself, and THAT's when I got quite excited! I discovered that I have lost 1 inch in my hips and 2 inches in my waist!!! I am a very happy camper!

Since I've been doing the hand weights and walking, I figure I'm building some muscle, so am not at all concerned about the scale not moving.

I did pretty good this week. I didn't exercise all 7 days, but I've I haven't stopped either. So I'm still happy with myself in that area.

And I've still done well with my eating. Eating less and healthier in general. Salad has really become my friend! I did have a couple of moments of weakness and indulged in a VERY bad choice of buying some mini doughnuts. But, I didn't go nuts like I would have before. And most importantly, I did not fall back in to my old way of thinking. (I already messed up, so just keep eating...then it will be gone and not tempting me anymore! Yes - a VERY bad way of thinking.) I didn't beat myself up over it, moved on and didn't keep eating!

So, I am quite happy with the results I've had so far with making myself a healthier person! And I'm NOT giving up this time!!!

  5. The walking is paying off in inches lost! The muscle you build now will allow for minidonut indulgence without weight gain later!
