I started ramping up about two weeks ago - trying to get in at least 45 minutes of exercise, at least five days a week. Before then, the scale had not moved. In the last two weeks I've finally seen some progress - 2 pounds. It might not sound like much, but it feels so good to be actually making progress rather than seeing no change on the scale. I realize the scale is not all there is - but since losing weight is one of my goals, I like to see that I am at least making some headway.
Those two pounds are what helped motivate me out of bed this morning to go for a 50 minute bike ride. My body wasn't in the mood for it, but I didn't want to lose my momentum! I think this was an especially good feat since my IBS has been acting up the last couple of days...making exercise not only undesirable, but on certain days, impossible.
Time for the rest of breakfast...
