Slo-o-ow but Steady

Saturday, August 18, 2012

It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to gain a pound (or 2 or 5) and how long it takes to lose one. I have really been careful with my calories and carbs, getting a little more exercise and have started a walking program. In comparing it with what I was doing two months ago, it is a huge difference. Why it takes so long for the scale to recognize it is the question. The two pounds I lost several weeks ago has been going back and forth ever since. I thought I was destined to weigh 220 for the rest of my life. Yesterday I weighed 4 times. Once, it was the same. twice it was a pound loss and once was 1/2 pound loss. So I was crossing my fingers this morning. Again I weighed four times (silly I know). Three times it was a pound loss and once 1/2 pound loss. I'm claiming my pound!! Under 220 for the time in 25 years. Major breakthrough for me!!

    We all have these fluctuations in our weight but eventually it will remain the same for several days and then you can rejoice! emoticon

    way to go, I know, I have been known to weight myself several times a day too, when I get up, when I go to the bathroom, etc, but usually I do not have that big of a change, and I agree, how come is it so easy to put on, and almost impossible to drop back off, emoticon

    I hear you! A small lapse in determination can change that scale even when we've overall been working our program. It can be very discouraging. But congrats on the pound lost!!! I say celebrate any and all losses! and
