Roller Coaster

It's good news this week!

I'm down - contrary to what the demon scale was telling me yesterday, today I'm down. Not a lot, mind, but at least I didn't gain.

I was hoping to be at least a few pounds down, I've been super active over the last week. Did a bit of the shred, but have also joined a workout group, I did the March of Dimes March for Babies, and did a lot of manual labor (yard work). I'm super sore, and my body FEELS different. As in, I don't have to work as hard to hold in my muffin top.

You hear that? The muffin top is shrinking. Whoopee!!

I also made a good food discovery this week - Ezekiel 4:9 Bread. I'm not gonna lie, it's not that tasty on its own. But toasted, with a little peanut butter, it's actually good! And super filling. Lots of protein and very necessary fiber. I've been eating a slice with PB and some banana for breakfast on the days I work out with Stroller Strides - and I've had enough energy that I don't keel over.

So, to the numbers:

Starting Weight: 182
Last Week's Weight: 179.8
This Week's Weight: 178.4

At this point, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to hit my goal of fifteen pounds in 8 weeks. I'm guessing, if I'm lucky, 5 to 7. But I am okay with that - it's something.

Congratulations! Keep active and you will definitely start noticing results. Since starting SS, I already feel stronger and more tone in certain areas - no improvement on the muffin top yet for me!! But it feels good to feel change even if it doesn't always show up on the scale. Keep it up!

Oh good onya for being able to eat that bread! It's an excellent choice, but I just cannot eat it!

Congrats on your loss! Keep up the great work!
