Day 238: Little Losses
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
This is the second week in a row that I've lost 0.4 pounds. After I got off to such a great start, it is a little disheartening to see the scale inch down, but I know consistency is the key. After all, I've lost 23.2 in just over 6 weeks. That's pretty impressive. And I've been "ready to cycle" for two full weeks, which may affect the scale. I just wish it would start already!
Changes I've noticed:
-My belly no longer rubs against the steering wheel in my car
-It's easier to walk up stairs now
-I don't need the sugary treats every day like I used to think I did
-My back doesn't hurt quite as bad as it used to and I can stand longer before I have to sit down
I've decided to start a gentle, slow walking program and ordered a pair of athletic shoes online last night. Walking is very scary for me because my back sometimes hurts so bad it feels like my legs are paralyzed, but the recent MRI just showed a mild bulging disk. I know walking will actually help me.
So bring on continued little losses! They add up, and the difference I feel already makes it all worthwhile.
I'm a strong woman and I choose health.
