Weigh-in day today...not as much fear as last week, but still found that I kept delaying getting on the scales. Finally sat myself down and talked to myself about all the positive things I had done this week, tracked my nutrition and stayed within my goals...even did more exercise this past week than the week before, drank lots and lots of water...so the worst that could happen would be that I stayed the same...so march right in there and step on that scale...the world is not going to end, you will not be struck by lightening and you might just be surprised! SURPRISED, YES. I eliminated 4 pounds, woo hoo, go me! What an awesome way to head into a weekend. I am so motivated to keep on going, what a great day! Interesting how I do not miss the pop or the potato chips at all. I do think about them every once in awhile, but the trade off is just not worth it to indulge. I found drinking water very easy, as that is about all I drink anyway, now I just make sure I drink more. Exercise has never been my strong suit until now...I just feel so much better when I am active, now I am planning each day how I can get more in...who is this strange person that now inhabits my body?? All I can say is welcome and stick around 'cause I rather like you.
