I've decided to stop weighing myself for a while.
I don't weigh in every day, but I do it more than once a week.
What often happens if I don't see a loss on any given day, is that I cut back my calories too much. And of course, I also do just the opposite. If I see a good loss, I tend to justify eating extra calories that day because I can afford to.
I think it's time to stop letting the number on the scale define the success or failure of my day-to-day efforts and time to stop asking it to validate, or dash, my lifestyle choices.
I have a rather large birthday looming ahead, and I've assigned it a couple of lofty goals.
I plan to run 200 miles and fit comfortably into a size 10 by that day, 7 weeks from now.
I think this will help even out my efforts, and break my dependence on that unholy number.

Everything was perfect! The weather, the location, the friends and family, the food, the entertainment. Everything. We had so much fun!
My daughter looked beautiful (she always does) and her new husband did too. Couldn't have asked for anything more!
As for me - I ate well, but not perfectly. I exercised some, but not extensively. I logged in to SP and earned points, but not many! And at the end of it all I lost 2 lbs!
So I would say the weekend was a HUGE success, all around!

We leave very early tomorrow morning for our daughter's wedding in VA. I've got the dress, the shoes, the jewelry, nails and hair done, waterproof mascara. I'm ready.
I am so happy for her, and excited about the event, and looking forward to seeing people and celebrating this wonderful time.
At the same time, I am concerned about maintaining some sort of semblance to my eating, exercise and connection to SP. I'm not freaking out about it or anything, just don't want to go too far backwards in the next 4 days.
One day driving down, one day of visits, rehearsals, special dinner, one very exciting wedding day, and one more day driving back. How hard can that be?
I will do my best, without being compulsive about it... I keep telling myself!
I just hope I am listening!

I read your comment on my " no exercise" blog last night around 10:00 and thought...OMG, THE CHALLENGE! I almost forgot to do my video workout!
Yes, I did my 10 minutes last night, and for saving me from my lazy day. I had a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment after finishing my week 3, day 4 video.
Here's to you, and all my SparkFriends!
Have a great day everybody.

First day off in 21, Not that I felt I needed it, or "deserved it"
Just too busy, tired, preoccupied, lazy, . . . Just never got to it.
I do feel like I should have, because it would've made for a better day all around.
Maybe I still will. Later on.
