After almost a week of the scales not moving, I'm finally down another pound! I've finally passed the 10 lb. mark! Maybe it was the rock climbing I did yesterday? :-D Although, oddly enough, I ate more calories yesterday than I should have. After being stuck at 180 for 6 days, it was a good morning :)

Last night I really blew it. I sat and munched on about 2 to 2.5 servings of wheat thins, AND ate 1/2 of this giant peanut-butter-filled heart left over from valentines day (150 calories! in just HALF of the thing!) and an Andes mint. That is in addition to a huge corned beef, cabbage & rutabaga dinner. Am I surprised my weight didn't go down this morning? No. I AM surprised it didn't go up, though!
I've been taking it easy the last week or so in regards to exercise and although my knee thanks me, my scales don't!
Today I'm getting back to the business of losing weight!

Well, I took it easy yesterday, since my knee has been acting up, and didn't do any exercise other than cleaning a house. No walking or elliptical. Today my knee feels better, so I went for a leisurely stroll through the woods for about an hour and a half.
Tomorrow evening, I'm going roller skating (woohoo!!) and Saturday, I'm going indoor rock climbing. I've never been, so that should be an adventure in and of itself. I hope to have pictures :-)
I am now down to about the weight I was the first time I started SP. Yes, I know. I really back-slid! The first time I did SP, I lost between 12 and 15 pounds, then I gained it all back, PLUS another 10! I've finally lost the extra 10 and I'm back to where I started. I really enjoy my walking, or I would, if my knee didn't screw up so bad on me when I try to do anything more than a medium pace! :( I'm scared to keep going on it when it's like this because I'm afraid I'm going to really mess something up. I'll have it checked out soon, to be on the safe side. I thought it was from carrying around all the extra weight, but although it may be making it worse, I don't think that weight is the main cause of the pain.
As stated in my last blog, I am a little disappointed that I'm not SEEING or FEELING any results from my 10 lb. weight loss, but I'm hoping that will start to change soon. I would really love my clothes to start fitting better, and to lose the uncomfortable rolls on my sides!
I'm really looking forward to trying out rock climbing, even though I know I'm going to be SO sore afterward!

I really thought I would be seeing some sort of change (or at least feeling it) in my body or the fit of my clothes after losing almost 10 pounds, but I am sadly disappointed to note that so far, there has been no change in how I feel or look. The number on the scale doesn't mean much when your clothes are still just as tight as they ever were :-(
I hope this will change soon, since I don't care about what the scale says so much as I care about what my mirror and clothes say, and right now, they're not talkin'.

Am I the only one who wonders if the things I am doing are enough? I know I suffer from Instant Gratification Syndrome (I'll call it IGS for short) and want my results NOW, but I honestly wonder if the things I am doing are really enough to get me from where I am to where I want to be.
To make things worse, I like to do manual labor to get exercise, and can't find anyone around me who is doing ANYTHING I can help with! I'm so immensely bored that I can't stop wanting to snack snack snack (although so far I have resisted the urge).
I'm feeling pretty down today, so everything looks bad right now, I guess. *sigh* I'm hoping I perk up later on.
