Just the facts Ma'am - Wk 6

So here are the facts...
Fact - The scale is devious. It toys with my emotions and challenges my self worth.
Fact- For eighteen days my weight bounced around from 240 to 242! I was angry & frustrated. I needed validation of all of my hard work & I was getting zippo.
Fact- Today is weigh in day.
Fact- The scale WAS winning, but it's not anymore!
I LOST 3 POUNDS!!! FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY!!!!! I'M IN THE 230's! 237.4 TO BE EXACT! WOO HOO!!!!!!
Do you know how hard it was to keep going to the gym almost everyday and not see any progress or even worse a gain. Except for one day over the last 18, I ate in my calorie range. The day I broke down was this week. I gained 1.6 lbs for no good reason and decided to eat my frustration. 2554 calories worth! The next morning I lost a pound - go figure.
I actually dropped into the 230's yesterday, but I was afraid it was a fluke. It showed up again today so I'm thinking they're here to stay. Well hopefully not for very long - I'm sure sometime soon I'll be complaining about the 220's! When I do please remind me that I also complained about going from 250 to 240 & that if I'm patient and stay focused progress will prevail (why can't we ever listen to our own advice???).
This weight loss/change your life thing is a beast. I guess if it were easy I would have done it a long time ago. Anywho, here are the numbers....
3 lbs, 230's, & the sun is shinning...It's going to be a good day!
