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!!
