Today is going to be a good day! It's a good idea to start off with a positive affirmation! Better than Yesterday when I was disillusioned with my progress. Even though my scale didn't show any progress on Thursday, my stomach feels flatter. That big roll of fat that I can grab seems not as much. So, even though the scale doesn't reflect progress, I know my body must be doing something to itself.

Yesterday I went clothes shopping at a local boutique that is going out of business. I did not shop there very often but the owner was very nice and I wanted to say goodbye to her. I own a business and I know how bad things can be in this economy. I bought a couple of items and my size didn't change. THings just fit better. I bought a jacket I had tried on last year and didn't buy because it was $129. It was still there from last year and now marked down to $30 so out the door it went with me. It was an extra large but I have broad shoulders that are never less than a large, no matter how skinny I get. I also bought an XL slinky black knit dress, the kind that clings to you. It wasn't as clingy as it would have been before and another lady commented on how good it looked. So I figured it will really look good when I have the right undergarments and a few more pounds off. It is stretchy so it will fit me as I go down. And a shirt and some jewelry. Did my part in helping her deplete her inventory.

I had breakfast and didn't get lunch until after 2:00 because of a traffic delay so I had a cup of corn chowder I had made. Then we went out to Logan's Roadhouse for dinner. I had one yeast roll, salad with oil and vinegar, and southwestern tilapia with broccoli for dinner. And when I got home, I had a vanilla yogurt. I've been trying to up my fiber intake and I did fine yesterday with the addition of benefiber to my coffee and soup.

This morning I got up to fill in my nutrition tracker and I was under 1300 calories for the day! Did well even with the yeast roll. I've been known to eat 2 or 3 yeast rolls at Logans and I had water to drink. I am about to go out on a scheduled 3 mile walk with my friend Pat. I hope to see the scale go down soon. Until tomorrow.

    Hope you enjoyed your walk! I liked your post because it is encouraging to hear that you are so positive and seeing changes even though the scale won't move. Mine is stuck, too...someone must have snuck in and re-wired it?? But doing my "streak" of working out each day feels so darn good that I am not as discouraged. I feel like my body is making changes, too, and more will come.

    Well, time to get to my stationary bike and yoga stretches.

    Have a great day today and the day after that and so on....
