I'm not really sure what to make of this.

If you've been reading my blogs, you know my week has been a rough one. I haven't gotten in my fitness since Sunday. Too much stress in my life. But I've been dealing with it pretty well.

Anyhow, this morning I was walking past the mirror and wondering. I looked. The little dimples on my abdomen looked bigger. I checked again the next time I walked past the mirror. Yep. Still there.

While I was starting breakfast, I decided it was time. I am about to embark on all sorts of life changes right now, so I might as well know where I am now. I got on the scale.

I was thinking
"my pants weren't sagging as much yesterday as I felt they were on Saturday"
"look at what I ate yesterday after I got home. Salt and sugar galore. Water retention"
"I don't feel any lighter"
"I'll be happy with just still being at 234lbs."

I wasn't. The scale was at 229.4. Below 230. I haven't been there in a long time.

I know Visi was increasing my energy. My bodymedia picked up on the extra activity on Sunday. But with the phone call Monday at noon. The stress all night. Then the meeting Tuesday. I didn't have anything left for fitness. I had to do self preservation. Period.

Usually when I weigh in, I do it about 30min after I get up. I don't eat or drink anything. Well, I had my coffee, and my PJ's on today.

Wow. I can't believe it. I've finally got this weight loss thing starting to happen, and I get kicked like this. I don't know whether to be happy, or pi$$ed off.

Anyhow, I'm trying to stay on the positive side of this all. It's a great start to my new journey.

I just wish I knew what my journey was now.
