It seemed that my scale was stuck for so long that it was extremely frustrating!...::: however, I gave it the cold shoulder and thought you are only a piece of metal and I am going to keep up exercising on a daily basis anyway and keeping my foods within my limits and eating healthy!

Long story short I lost 2 pounds this last week ! .. emoticon
Moral of my story is keep going anyway and don't get discouraged.

Got up an hour early to help husband finish moving furniture and vacuum before carpet cleaning later today. I will miss that sleep, but am glad it's all done. I'm happy that after all the harder workouts, moving furniture was a breeze!

Awesome! My brag isn't very exciting. I got up and fixed a healthy breakfast though I was tempted to wait till I got to work and go to the cafeteria. I had a banana, kale, pb2, almond milk, and yogurt blender drink plus a hardboiled egg for more protein, and my usual black coffee at work.

A whole day of balancing meals and a snack
Had only one small healthy snack
Ate my own prepared lunch instead of ordering out with my department
Boxed up half my restaurant dinner instead of eating it all

Bought a healthy salad in Lidl yesterday for lunch, instead of a sandwich. The salad filled me up and was under 300 calories, the sandwich would not have filled me up and been around 500 calories - win-win!

Hope the post surgery pain is going away.

I'm on the third week of my up the stairs goal. 1.5 trips to my 3rd floor office are about all the going up my knees can handle. I've added 2 trips once a week till I can do it easily.

Grrr...no Victory yesterday. I felt out of sorts all day, caved in to TEN mini Hershey's bars. The wrappers are still in my trash as evidence. They're reminding me today that I don't want to do that again. I don't feel out of sorts today, but the oak pollen is doing a number on me.

I'm anticipating another NSV. By the end of this month, I'll have earned a whole year's worth of at least 1000 min fitness trophies. I'm getting closer. What a difference a solid year makes. I've lost a good 25 lbs, had to replace a lot of clothes, and went from dragging myself through 10 min workouts to doing my first 20,000 steps recently. I'm going to keep up this fitness streak. It's doing good things for me!

Today is full of Victory. For starters, for the first time ever, I made my 5% challenge goal. Next, meeting the challenge goal means that I am under 200 pounds for the first time in several years. I intend to stay there; no more 200s ever. In addition, I made it to 20,000 steps this week for the first time since Ive been tracking with my Fitbit.

This mornings success was going out for breakfast with husband. We walked to the restaurant instead of driving. He ordered a big breakfast special; I did not. I had two poached eggs, one and a half pieces of buttered toast without jam, one piece of husbands bacon, about a third of the hash browns, and 2 cups of coffee with only two creamers. The calories totaled 488. Thats more than I normally eat for breakfast, but considerably less then I might have eaten.

Eating at mom's tonight. I prepared by having low cal healthy breakfast and lunch plus a few nuts for protein snack. I went for an extra walk before work to get in more steps and surprised myself. I was aiming for 15,000 steps today, and it looks like I might make it to 17,000.

Way to go on your tracking streak. I'm proud of myself that for every week of the winter 5% challenge, I've either lost or stayed the same, no gains at all. I am going to make my 50 lbs in '18 goal.

Good management of a temptation at work. There were bagels and cream cheese downstairs. I took half of one with moderate amount of smoked salmon cream cheese. Because I chose that, I didnt go to the cafeteria for baked potato day. I need some carbs, but not that many.
