This is why we need to take a step back

My Spark vacation last week seems to have worked in my favour.
I didn't want to weigh myself until Monday. That's my official weigh-in day, and I wanted to give myself the weekend to bust out some cardio in hopes of at least maintaining after a week of friends and food. But I couldn't help myself. Fearing the worst, I stepped on the scale and...
I LOST ONE POUND.
Seriously? I've been STUCK at the same weight for weeks now, even though I've been religiously sticking to my calorie count and exercise. Now, I let go of my trackers, ditch any standard cardio (although I have to admit we kept busy) and eat like...well, like I don't have to track it! haha And what happens? I bust through that plateau and lose another pound.
I feel great!!! Because I think I'm just really realizing how possible it will be to lead a "normal life", not tracking my every move and enjoying eating again, without packing on the pounds. I'm returning all exercise videos to the library on Tuesday and will rely on "natural exercise", i.e. bike riding, playing with my kids in the park, etc. I'm so ready for this!
