The Scale is My Friend!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I really started my workout and re-started my gluten free diet on Monday, and the scale has been *very* encouraging!

I did a 4 mile run/walk on Monday, and ended up dropping 2 pounds when I checked the scale on Tuesday....another pound Wednesday, and yet ANOTHER pound when I checked this morning! That's 4 pounds in 3 days. EEP! It would really be awesome if I could keep this up the rest of this week (highly doubtful). But even if I could drop just 1 more pound this week, that would be great. I don't think losing 5 pounds in my *first* week back of pushing my weight loss efforts hard is unreasonable, considering some of it is probably water weight. Of course, this pace will slow *way* down. But I do want to try to lose about 2 lbs a week.

I hate feeling like I have to catch up! Man, I could have been 20-30 lbs lighter if I hadn't fallen off the wagon in March. But, thus is life! Moving on. It is fun to think that I can be 20 lbs lighter by the end of August. emoticon

    Girl you got this. 5lbs in one week isn't bad at all...its your "kickoff" and 2lbs a week is totally doable. You're doing great...keep it up!

    That darn wagon!! I've been struggling myself for the last month and my weight loss has slowed down. I sometimes don't take that scale seriously because if I'm not being consistent it isn't my friend. But when I am being consistent - it's a good buddy. emoticon
