Nowhere To Go But Down

Monday, August 04, 2008

I weigh every day at home, I have a Weight Watchers scale that is totally awesome. This time for me is different - my moods are no longer decided by the scale. I have nowhere to go but down.

But every time I get to 178.+ I wind up back at 179 and then 180. I have decided that tomorrow I will break it again and this time hold onto it.

If not maybe the next day, lol. As I say, I have nowhere to go but down.

I have been exercising a lot and I really think it is muscle. I just started with a pedometer last week and have been doing the 10,000 steps daily! What a rush! Plus all the leg and arm exercises because they are my trouble spots.

Since joining and using Spark's Nutrition Tracker I have a great record of staying on track so it will all move eventually.

Just wanted to post it because I like the phrase, nowhere to go but down. I chose the virtual image of 130 lbs because I no longer think anything is impossible since finding SparkPeople.

    That is a wonderful sentiment. I feel the same way about SP. It's been a revelation to me. You can do it. You will do it. You are doing it. Hugs.

    Hi Linda,
I love that phrase. It works for me. 130 is also my goal weight. We can do this together.

    You are definitely going down :) I know that you are building muscle. I have intensified my workouts and I am gaining muscle and the pounds have gone up slightly but I know that my fat percentage is decreasing daily WOOHOO

You can do this and I know that 130 is very doable. I am so looking forward to seeing you at your goal.
