Goodbye Six More!

Monday's weigh-in was a bit of a surprise.  I was down six pounds!

I don't really think I lost six pounds over the course of one week, actually.  So many things go into a weigh-in: food in your stomach, water retention, how recently you've been to the bathroom . . .  and I think my weigh-in last week was a little high to be honest.  I knew I had lost but the scale wasn't cooperating and showed a loss of 1/5 of a pound.  So this week the numbers caught up to me - happy day!

My Weight Watchers leader, Karen, has created a challenge for us.  She has paired us up with partners and challenged us to keep each other honest and motivated.  I promised my partner I would work out this week - a hefty promise to keep since I really dislike exercise in general. 

But we have a local gym, Planet Fitness, that stays open 24 hours during the week and that works with my schedule.  They have every machine you can imagine, a super friendly staff, and a price that I can live with.  (The cheap membership is just $10 a month!)  They also have a half-hour circuit (my favorite!) with weight machines of all different types and aerobic stations.

So I donned my grey sweatpants last night and headed out to keep my promise to work out.  Wow!  It was good but today I'm feeling muscles that I didn't even know I had.

Now the trick is to stay motivated enough to do it again. 

Onward and downward!

Next time you'll see less of me!
