Well, it’s not what I’d hoped for… but it’s still a loss. I am DOWN ONE POUND from last week!
I have to admit, I was a little discouraged at first. But then I talked with my Cherished Canadian Confidante, and she offered these words of encouragement:
I am down one pound. A little disappointed.
was hoping for at least two.
But you obviously had some victories!!!
And you started this study while at your parents' house, so that was not your 'normal' anyway.
Yes. Counting today, I have exercised 4 times already this week. (Starting Sunday).
This is true. I've only really been "serious" for the last 4 days.
There you go. So maybe you need to think of it that you've lost a pound in 4 days, rather than 10.
That's right away a much better rate!!
Thanks Friend!! I needed that perspective!!
I have had some victories this week. In addition to four straight days of exercise, I have met my water goals (8 – 8oz glasses each day) every day, and am staying away from sweets and other fatty foods. I have managed to stay ON PLAN (see sidebar) so far this week, and THAT in and of itself is a huge VICTORY for me!
So what are my goals for this week?
To continue on with the eating plan, and complete my first week of exercise training. The plan is to walk (at least two miles, either out doors or via Leslie Sansone DVD) on M/W/F and do Pilates on T/Th.
So far, so good.
I’ll close with a scripture that my Mom sent last week in an email:
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work is finished correctly - 1 Chronicles 28:20
I’m believing for GREAT THINGS next week!!
