7th day on SparkPeople

Saturday, August 10, 2013

So tomorrow is going to be the end of my first week on here. Today was really frustrating for me because when I got on the scale, I realized that I haven't lost any weight and of course today was the day we were going to Texas Roadhouse... So when I get home after eating WAY more calories than I needed to, I got my hula hoop out. I have decided that even the days that make me angry and I end up eating bad things I can still make improvements. I hula hooped a whole hour today for the first time and I am going to hula hoop more later. Even though my weight has not gone down yet I feel improvements. I feel like i am stronger, not only have I gained strength in my body but I have gained strength in my mind and my decisions. Yay!
emoticon Even if I don't see the number on the scale change tomorrow, I will know that I have changed.

    I so love your attitude toward this journey. Your so upbeat in your thinking, and we all know the mind and attitude are half the battle. Way to go... emoticon

    You should pick one day a week to weigh. It isn't good to weigh everyday because in women it changes daily. Muscle does weigh more than fat, so it is good that you feel stronger and feel other improvements. I also started measuring myself to see how many inches I have lost. Because it frustrates me when the scale doesn't go down either. Keep up the good work and you will get there!

    You made it through the first week...yay!! Hula hooping is a fabulous exercise idea, love it! Don't forget to measure by inches lost and not just weight, among the other things like how much better you feel about yourself. Great job! emoticon

    Yay, glad you got a workout in to balance the bbq. Even if you stay THE SAME weight, I bet you will start to see major changes, especially in your strength. Keep it up! emoticon
