Weekly weigh-in

This is going to be quick as I’m just in from my exercise class and after this I’m taking the night off to veg in front of the tv. It has to be done once in a while. 🙂
I stepped on the scales this evening with a little trepidation. On my way home in the car from class I pondered if I should wait until tomorrow evening because I drink lots of water when exercising and surely that will affect things.

I remembered the home-made soup and lunches I made and the exercise I’d done. I quite often need to talk sense into myself!

Luckily I did because I’m down 2.6lbs this week. I guess I didn’t give in to my cravings quite as much as I thought plus the exercise will have helped too. So I’m happy but I’m even happier that I didn’t allow myself to avoid the scales for fear of the number. I know I’m getting places no matter what the number.

If I’m up and about doing housework or whatever food doesn’t seem to cross my mind – not much anyway. So what do I do? Clean non stop ? Maybe I could just get my emotions turned off…. it could be great but I would probably end up being very dull. Skinny but dull. Question is would it be worth it. I’ll have to ponder that one…..
