So I mentioned in my update blog yesterday that I had made it through one week of tracking food again (and staying in range of caloric intake).
I lost five pounds. This means there are only 8 more pounds til I am back where I was when I took a pause for life.
It's crazy. Part of me is in disbelief, that maybe my scale was wrong: either I weigh more and it was wrong or it weighed me more last Saturday. I know that the first week is generally the biggest loss you will see, but it can still be shocking. Especially since I wasn't adding any exercise. I am well aware that you can lose weight with diet alone as long as your calories in are less than calories out, but it's still weird to me.
That's about it. I am going to try to fit in some exercise this week. I know it will help with my sleep troubles. It's just really hard to do a PhD and try to fit in exercise and have time to do activities that keep you sane (for me that would be read novels, play on the internet, knit, and do my nails). I know it's almost over, but it still feels like a lifetime of sanity away.
