Tales from the Scales Tuesday

I am so relieved that this week we were asked to focus on the non-numbers. The numbers weren't kind to me this week. However, I must remind myself that it took me a while to pack on the pounds...they ain't coming off in a week! :D

Though the scales weren't my friend this week, overall, I'm happy with what I've accomplished thus far. I exercise most every day and instead of killing myself with workouts that are too intense, I'm "Walking Away" the pounds using the Leslie Sansone DVDs. I highly recommend them! They are fairly easy to keep up with and I can't believe I'm going to say this...they're kinda fun! The exercise has me sleeping better and I've lost five inches in addition to my overall weight loss of 21 pounds (lately it's 21, then 23, back to 21, then to 22, etc. etc.). I've given up drinking regular sodas for the most part...this is down from 5-6 glasses PER DAY and I drink more water than I ever have. I've gone down one size in clothing! Yippeee!! Love that!

As you lose weight, your body has to stabilize and basically fit itself into the new you. It takes some adjustment by your body.

If you are eating right, not eating the junks that are out there and exercising, then be easy on yourself and wait for the weight to release. You may be retaining water. I had a week where I didn't lose much and that was the case. Just keep on and it will happen.

See you next week!

Losing inches and a size are both GREAT signs of progress! Keep up the good work.
