What am I retaining? Grand Coulee Dam?

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Second "dam" weigh-in with no change this morning, although my scale is being passive-aggressive. When I cheated during the week it showed I'd lost the intended pound, but now that I 'm on record, it put it back. Thanks a heap.

I'm getting a tape measure today - that should confirm my suspicion that my waistline is already slimming. As to retaining water, that was just a joke - I have no idea. But I do think muscle mass is part of it. I also have to bear in mind that I'm fighting a med notorious for weight gain. Even holding my own is an accomplishment.

My energy level is up markedly. This is also due to a multivitamin, reduced job stress and improved sleep - things are looking up!

I'm hanging in there that the scale will eventually show the dang results of all my hard work. I guess it's possible I'm underestimating calories, but I really don't want to start tracking every "dam" calorie I eat. There has to be a better way!

    You didn't gain the weight in one day so it sure as heck won't come off in one week. One day at a time and don't worry, it'll come off. emoticon

    Remember that there is a BIG difference between making a DECISION and making a COMMITMENT! God Bless YOU! Vic.
