Those dratted scales finally moved

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

Monday night I was feeling so discouraged I pigged out on lemon bars. Surprise, surprise, the next morning those dratted scales finally moved. And it was on the scales at my doctor's office which always weigh more than mine at home. I lost an inch in my waistline. What a shame I hadn't written down other measurements for comparison (something I am going to do today).

It was a month or seemed like a month and they wouldn't budge in spite of exercising five to six times weekly (except for an out of town trip). My exercise included weight training and cardio and I tried to stay within Spark People's calorie limits. A friend in one of my exercise classes with the same problem speculated that maybe we were gaining muscle but I was afraid that might just be making an excuse. Now I know that I probably did gain muscle and that if I am persistent, the weight loss will catch up.

While I kept trying to think positive it was hard yet I was getting some great encouragement from Spark People. You know who you are! Thanks. I am back on track!!! But I realize the scales may be stubborn again and I can't pig out on lemon bars! Lemon bars aren't even my favorite pig out food.

    Thanks for the blog. I just started a month ago, and I noticed that I didn't lose anything this week. However, I did like you suggested and check my measurements - and I lost an inch! So, it is important for us to keep moving and grooving . . . the weight ticker will catch up!

    And, haha - I LOVE lemon bars! But last night my treat was a square of chocolate and a few chips . . . . Live by Spark's 80-20 rule!!!!
