The scale wasn't as kind as I would have liked, but that's ok
Saturday, October 12, 2019
So I worked really hard this past week and ended up with 0.4 pounds lost. Bleh. Thank goodness I wrote down all my NSVs for the week last night, in preparation for such an occurrence. I need to do that EVERY week, because this is going to be a long, slow journey.
When I was younger, my first week of "turning over a new leaf" always resulted in a large loss - 5 pounds wasn't unusual - but those days appear to be long gone.
That's ok. If I lose 0.4 pounds every week for the next year, by Oct 5, 2020 I'll be more than 20 pounds lighter. That's not as good as I want, but definitely better than going the other direction as I have been recently.
Today was good - I didn't let the scale derail me. I had a good hike, made healthy food choices, wrote down every bite, stayed within my SP calorie range, and drank 8 glasses of water. Score!
