And, I will admit, I changed the starting weight a little over a week ago... before I started doing Sally's suggestions... because I noticed I had gained a few pounds since I last reported my weight.
So, technically, I haven't really lost any weight from when I first started in June... but I have lost weight since I started really focusing on my food and following my new plan.
I plan on weighing in again on August 1st, just to see if there's any change...and to do my "official" one month weight loss. The plan is to then weigh in on the first of the month from there on out.
Can I stay off the scale for an entire month? No. But, I will only be using my weigh-ins from the first of each month to log my progress.
I've done a really good job of staying off the scale, actually. When I vowed to stay off the scale a few weeks ago, I didn't get back on it until I started my new plan. I was upset when I saw how much I'd gained since being off the scale - but it wasn't like I was really gung-ho on doing much with my eating before that.
It's nice to see that even though I haven't been very active since focusing on my food, the pounds are slowly coming off.
I haven't gone swimming in a couple of days, and because of the heat I haven't done much walking. Today, it's pouring down rain...and plans on staying that way all day. It would be the perfect opportunity for a refreshing walk (rain doesn't bother me), but I have friends coming over to spend the day with me.
Thankfully, I've chosen healthy snacks to feed to my friends. Not sure they'll be thrilled, but the crackers I've picked out are super yummy...so, I don't see why there should be any problems.
That's all I'm going to share today... being that I have to get in my social state of mind.
Have a great Friday!
Till next time!
