Fall 5% Challenge -- Week 4 completed

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Weigh-in day showed 1 lb lost. emoticon I'll take it. After all that extra exercising last week, I kinda thought it might be more, but Hey! Last week I got the bounce-up, so I'm happy for the 1 lb loss.

I'm learning that this process isn't always "fair." Just because I exercised like a fiend and didn't cheat even once on my diet last week (except for some white rice instead of brown), does not mean I'll weigh-in 2 lbs down. Maybe I added some muscle; maybe my body is holding water....maybe it just doesn't want to lose another lb this week! Whatever. I really can't control anything except my activity and what I put into my mouth.

Now, on the other hand--while doing my gym workout yesterday, 3 people told me how good I looked. And, at my age, I'll take that too :)

    WTG Jazze. One pound per week is great progress. And yes, exercising like a demon will add some muscles and cause your body to retain more supplies to help those muscles work, since it knows they will need to. That about the same rate my wife has been losing at.

    You are so close to your goal that is harder to lose weight , but if you are creating muscle that´s great because it burns more calories so it will be much more easy to maintain your new weight. Keep going strong , you are such an inspiration.

    That's so true! In fact, it can be so unfair. I worked really, really hard all summer and did not lose a single pound! But I know I'm stronger so that will have to do. Hang in there!!

    Congratulations Jazz!!! 1 lb. loss is great!! Be proud of each pound and you might be right for the reasons that it is only 1, but it is a loss!!! emoticon Celebrate and keep up the great work.
