My weight was down 7 pounds from last week! 7 pounds!!
I am so happy. If I work this hard at staying on track all the time, I can expect to see results every single week. I'm not talking about the scale because we all know that little hunk of metal is evil. I'm talking about the way I feel, the way clothes fit, the way I look, my measurements. And there will be weeks when nothing seems different, but hopefully weeks like this will carry me though the tough times. Because there will be tough times. I'm not going to kid myself into thinking there won't be.
I am hoping to be at my pre-pregnant weight (yet again) by September because my mother in law is coming to visit and that will be the smallest she's seen me. But you know, even if I don' get there, I'm still making positive changes and that's what really matters. Not some number on the scale. Yeah, tell me that I'm screaming about a gain, k? That evil little critter has power over me even though I like to pretend it doesn't.
M goal for this week is to play outside with my 2 year old every day and get points for this week's challenge. It might not be full on games but I will play, not watch. I would like to get at least 30 minutes of exercise outside each day this week.
