If you remember when I weighed myself Wednesday of last week and came away with the 260.6, I had done it at night after a day of eating and not much else. I usually weigh myself Monday mornings. They say you’re supposed to weigh yourself in the morning because that’s when you’re at your lightest. Sign me UP. Okay, get to the point, me.
I’m saying that I was probably more like 257 or 258 last week, because when I tell you that I stepped on the scale this morning and it read:
(!!!!!!!!!!!!)I was stoked beyond belief, but also skeptical. There is no way it’s a seven pound loss – it’s probably closer to 4 or 5. BUT STILL! I’m takin’ it!
And I swear, this happens every time, whenever I feel light and airy and think the numbers will actually reflect that, I gain weight. But if I’m stepping on the scale feeling heavy and gross, I will have lost weight. It’s the weirdest thing. And sure enough, I felt like a boulder this morning, and yet, check out that number!
That’s a good way to start a day, don’t you think?
This week I need to make sure I don’t rest on my laurels!
It doesn’t help that my gym is closed today because of Labor Day. Maybe I’ll find time to dance around my room today and either use hand-weights or that weight band thing I have. I’m not really a big exercise video person, though I do have a couple of pilates videos. Sometimes I feel like it’s just glorified rolling around on the floor, but I’m pretty sure that’s because I’m doing it wrong. Anyway, maybe I’ll figure out some kind of exercise to do today. And not eat because I’m bored!
Also: I added a guideline for myself over yonder on the right side, for month-by-month calculations. If I stick to those numbers I will achieve my goal! I did the same for SWL1 and it always motivated me. It helps me visualize the end results, but understand that it only happens with the smaller victories along the way.
And I joined Twitter. Fun times.
