Last week the scale said I gained 3 lbs. Ugh. I knew it I just didn't want to face it so I didn't post it here till today. Being in denial over gaining is still a problem for me. I hate to admit failure even though I know what I did to make myself fail. Last weekend I added insult to injury by consuming that challah loaf and brownie. Strange enough though, I didn't gain from eating those. I don't want to sugar cote anything either so I'm just going to say that I wasn't giving my 100% during that week.
This week however has been a horse of a different color. I've been making great choices for eating. I've been on my bike for at least 30 minutes everyday since Saturday. As a result, I lost a total this week of 5.6 lbs. I really only lost 2.6 because of the gain from last week. So to be honest I'm saying I lost 2.6. I hate to include pounds I have already lost once. (does that make sense or am I now babbling?)This weekend I'll be hunting down my weights to get started on some training to build up some muscle. I feel like a new woman. Is it the fresh air? Is it the lack of sugar? It's all that and a gang of bloggers!!
Really, I could not see myself facing this battle everyday without all you humor, support, tips, and reality-check sharing peeps out there in blogland. You make my life richer everytime I read your posts. Keep hacking at it. We are going to all be leaving the weight-loss arena together soon.
PS - I wore my red today, but forgot to bring my camera to work. I'll try to take a pic before I change for my ride tonight.
