Disappointed but the month is still young!

Thursday, February 08, 2018

So today was weigh-in day. Started new page on February 1st and have been going great guns! Exercising every day, tracking food and skipping sweets, drinking more water than I usually do - and the biggest accomplishment has been skipping my glass (or two) of red wine each evening! So I thought that today would be awesome!!!!

But alas, I only lost .2 of a pound....not 2 pounds, not 1 pound, not .50 of a pound, just a measly .2 of a pound. Yes, I am disappointed. I had expected more. So I have been reflecting on this disappointment all day and I cannot explain why I have not lost weight.

But this is only February 8th - and I have 20 more days this month to get slimmer. Fortunately, I still feel good about all the things I am doing. I am positive and upbeat, disappointed and confused, but feeling good and motivated to keep going!

Got a new fitness tracker yesterday - a Motiv ring! I am excited that this might be the boost I needed to better track my steps and activity! So bring on the those next 20 days as I am ready to go forward!!!!

    No scale except at doctor. Refuse to let a scale dictate my success.

    Remember, muscle weighs more than fat. If you are gaining muscle, you may not be losing as much but actually gaining muscle!

    So glad to see that this is not discouraging you. Your fitness tracker will help. It has helped me.
