I have kicked butt the last four or five days. I've worked out every day and been within my calorie range every one of those days. I have not snacked on things that were unplanned. Yay me!
I must admit that I am one of those people who weighs every day, in the morning, once. I'm not obsessed with the number on the scale (okay, maybe a little). I use the number to give myself feedback on how my body is reacting to what I did the day before. If I was low on fiber for a couple of days and then suddenly increase one day, my weight goes up. (I won't go into the details on that one! LOL!) If I drink a lot of water instead of soda, my weight goes down. Simple things like that help my enginerdy mind understand (or think it understands) what's happening to my body.
So, back to my success. I've kicked butt for the last couple of days and have been rewarded on the scale with...drum roll please.....a 0.4 pound weight GAIN!!! I know, I know...normal weight fluctuations. I totally get that. I think what bothers me is that I input the data that I've put in before and I got different results (I usually see a loss when I make this kind of change).
For those of you with analytical minds, you know that if you do x, you get y. Or, if you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you always got. Well, I did and I didn't! LOL! I suppose tomorrow will be different and I will see those 0.4 pounds are gone. I hope so. But, if they're not, I'm not letting it derail me. I know I'm making healthy changes and I feel better about myself. I may be obsessed with the scale, but it will not run my life!
Thanks for listening to my self-involved blog.
