Well, that birthday present backfired....

Friday, December 06, 2013

I decided to weigh myself a day early so I could be thrilled that I lost not one but several pounds over the course of the week.
Much to my chagrin, I'm exactly the same as last week: 234. So unless I'm right on the cusp, I probably won't see 233 tomorrow. That's quite a disappointment. But given that I'm walking 2 miles more every day, I can probably chalk some of that up to increased muscle mass. And I can take some solace in the fact that I didn't gain anything. I know I'm making good choices: I can feel the benefits of increased strength, energy and even alertness. It just would be nice to also see it on the scale.

    Those darn scales! Best not to have much to do with them. I notice my weight loss in the way my clothes fit and how I feel even when the scale doesn't change. Happy Birthday!

    I know just how you feel as have been there too ........... But before I finished reading, I was thinking about possible muscle beefing up ........ which is always heavy on the scales .......... Keep going though and you will see what you want ......... (may have been some hidden sodium too) .......... emoticon

    Be sure to use a measuring tape. Weeks I didn't lose on the scale , I did lose in size. I find that more important than weight. Weight will flux daily !!
    Keep up the good work !

    You're still making wonderful progress and you may never get to the number that you want but you'll be so much healthier!
