Weekly Weigh-In: Wow!
Happy Monday! It's time to weigh-in with your weight-loss results and on any weight-loss, health or fitness topic that may be on your mind today. How did you do this week?
I weighed in on Friday and I was shocked! It was with the most discouragement that I think I've felt my entire weight-loss journey that I went to step on the scale Friday morning. See, I'd broken my own rule about once-twice-at-the-most-a-week weighing. I'd weighed nearly every day and I did not like what the scale was showing me.
Imagine my surprise when the scale showed a 2 pound weight loss! Now, granted, I didn't have my shoes on and I usually do, but I know they don't weigh more than half a pound, at most, so I was very pleasantly surprised at my results. Did I deserve them? I think so. I was pretty mindful about what I ate last week and I worked out every day, with a spin class at the Y thrown in for good measure.
Could it have been a fluke anyway? Maybe. So, my job this week is to keep off that two pounds and see if I can get rid of another pound or two to go with it. I'm only about 4 pounds away from officially not being obese anymore!! After 16+ years of being obese, if that's not incentive, I don't know what is!
As far as my weigh-in about health and fitness, I thought I'd share a couple of promising looking websites that I have discovered, but haven't had time to fully explore yet:
Health Castle (Nutrition advice by registered dietitians)
High Fiber Diet Menus
So, what about you? How did you do this last week?
