Scale up, still kicked butt

Monday, September 15, 2008

The scale read 1.8 lbs. higher today than it did at my last weigh-in. I was briefly disappointed because I was 100% sure I'd lost weight. Overall, I consider my efforts over the last week successful. Here's what I'm proud of:

- tracked calories daily
- ate 4-6 fruit servings a day
- exercised (hard) 6 out of 7 days
- was active on SP
- subjectively improved my 1 mile run time (I don't know the exact time improvement but I know I did!)
- added a 3rd week to my veggie streak
- was binge-free all week!

Generally speaking I noticed a dramatic increase in energy & just felt healthier!

My plan for this week is to keep doing what I'm doing & have faith that the scale will go down next Monday.

    that's amazing! even if the scale did go up slightly, i'm sure you have gained muscle and your body is better for it. great job!

    as long as you feel healthier, screw what the scale says! I blame it on faulty equipment & the weather. you're kicking some serious butt!

    Love that positive attitude...you're right, the scale isn't all there is to tell us how we're doing.

    You noticed a big difference in energy and feel healthier.
    Wallah, that's all that matters.

    Keep doing whatever you're doing...it works. Next week, the
    scale might show a difference.
