Weigh-in report: A hopeful trend
Notice that my last three weigh-ins have been losses. It's kind of a nice change of pace. I was down 0.4 this week, almost half a pound. For the last three weeks, I have been committed to tracking every day no matter what. In the past, I would get over my points somewhere in the week and stop tracking. Here's a hint to all the newbies out there: You don't eat less because you're not tracking. I was over my points the last three weeks but apparently still had enough of a calorie deficit to lose a little.
I think that the other thing that has made a difference was switching my Spinning class from one I was halfhearted about to one that I really like. I am pushing myself more in those classes twice a week, and that seems to have made a difference. I can see a difference in my thighs, which have always come in second to my stomach as my least favorite body part. I also think that getting more sunshine these last few weeks has brightened my mood and helped keep me away from the comfort carbs.
I'm feeling strong and healthy and happy right now. The scale might still say I'm a little heavier than I want to be, but I'm working on it.
