Trending down still

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I haven't really been tracking the last couple of days, but I have been for the last couple of weeks. I'll have to get back to tracking again tomorrow, now that I can go grocery shopping for the month again.

Fortunately, this weeks scale number was down again. I'm only most of a pound down (according the the third and fourth times stepping on it), but it's better than going back up. It's frustrating getting these last 25 pounds off, I swear I've been doing that for longer than it took to get the first 50 off.

So now I'm 2 pounds down from my new trend line starting point according to the big number on the front page, and 5 from my new tracker starting position, but this also means I'm 55 down from my original starting weight! I know I've been lighter since starting this journey, but I'm seeing that lowest point coming again soon!

I know that the number on the scale is only one number that I have to worry about, but it's also the most frustrating. It can go up and down 5 pounds within a week depending on if I had too much salt or didn't eat enough vegetables. I actually saw 173 this week, but obviously it didn't stick long enough to log, since I only log in once a week on Tuesday.

Today I'm done with the number and will be making the rest of my day as good as possible until I can actually get up to the store. Tomorrow I'll be back on track and hopefully next week's number on the scale will be lower again!

Today's Holidays: National Exercise With Your Child Week (thanks for letting me know about this one Kabmph!), Wiggle Your Toes Day, National Fresh Breath Day and National Root Beer Float Day (you can get a free small root beer float from A&W today after 2pm
, it benefits the Wounded Warrior Project so leave a donation).

    You can do it! SP has some info on how to lose the last 10 lbs...and so does the internet. I used both when I was beating those last lbs off my body...and you can too!

    You'll get through the plateau! It hits all of us at one point or another.

    Remember to reward yourself for your good behavior not your weight. You're doing all the right things so the number will go down, but what's more important is how you feel and how often you're able to make good choices. I weigh in on Tuesdays too, so you're not alone. :)

    A loss is a loss however small. I'm frequently finding I lose part of a lb. As long as it continues each week I'm fine with it. We'll get there.
