I was waiting for my Tuesday weekly anniversary -- what I think of the official weigh-in day -- to record my weight, hoping that the pound I'd gained back would disappear. But alas, there it still is, so I've duly recorded the bump. I'd lost six pounds, but now I've lost five. Part of has to be the fact that I ate my weight in guacamole and red wine at a party on Saturday night, but I've been on track nutritionally otherwise, so hopefully it is a short-lived blip.
Still, after 21 days (has it really been that long!) I admit the novelty of Spark has worn off slightly and I'm not quite as good about checking in and doing all the reading I should. Though I discovered lice in the kids' heads on the weekend, so my free time has not been spent as I might have liked ;).
Onward. I still feel thinner, which is hilarious. Five pounds down and my pants feel better and I feel healthier. I haven't had pop in 21 days, nor been very tempted. I've cut way way back on sugar and, to a lesser extent, packaged food. I'm eating healthier, far more fruit and veg, and I'm drinking mostly water. I've given up on daily alcohol (which wasn't always daily anyway) and now just have it occasionally. I've resurrected some of my olden days vegetarian habits.
My exercise still leads a lot to be desired. Still, I'll focus on the victories and trust the scale will respond in time.
