Weigh-In Wednesday

Today is Wednesday and that means Weigh-In Wednesday!  I'm starting to love Wednesdays!  My weight this week is 216.6!  I am down 7 pounds from last week!  Holla for a dolla weight loss! 

Mama needs a pedi!

Now, I know it's mostly water weight and there's no way I will do this again.  This has been the story of my yo-yo dieting - 1st week, do really good, lose a good 5 pounds, feel good about it all, think I can slack off a little because it's easy, 2nd week, gain back 4 pounds for a net loss of 1 pound, get mad because I think I worked my booty off and didn't eat anything good for 2 weeks for 1 pound and then pretty much give up.  However, now I feel equipped with enough knowledge, determination, whatever not to let that happen.  I have learned to look at this long term, where I hope to be in the next 3 months, 6 months, next year, etc.  I know there will be weeks that I don't lose or even gain, but that's all part of it.  I don't want to be so focused on the scale that I lose sight of the big picture - getting healthy & shaping my body.  And I'm sure I will lose motivation, but when I do, I hope to pick it right back up again.

So, how did I lose weight this week?  I'm tracking everything I eat in My Fitness Pal. And, my co-worker and I joined the gym!  We are keeping each other accountable.  It hasn't been hard and I'm really enjoying it.  That's my "Me Time".  I have so much more energy.  I just can't tell you how much I'm really liking this.  Also, with My Fitness Pal, there's no certain food I can or can't eat.  It's simply tracking calories.  There's no special food I have to buy or separate meals I have to cook just for me.  It's great because I have it on my phone and literally take it with me everywhere I go.  Easy peasy!
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
