No Bueno

Well, this week's weigh in was a bust. I didn't lost anything. But I knew that would be the case, because my whole body felt weighed down, like I was full of fluid. So I can only think the numbers on the scale weren't accurate.
I don't know why I felt so bloated all weekend? We've been eating a lot of bagels - maybe that's it.

That's all you can ever do - keep at it!

I was hoping to find something to replace water in the afternoon, something that would still hydrate me, but no luck yet.

Lately I really feel like one! Since March. I admit, I got lazy - and I liked it! Who doesn't like sitting? A lot.

It's working.
Down 2 more pounds. - Go Me! -

It makes me WANT to see those numbers drop on the scale each week.
It makes me look forward to weigh in day. Strange, right?

So, I gave myself a modified goal. I decided that once I reach my total weight loss goal, I will reward myself with a new tattoo that I not only want, but will remind me every day to never give up on being healthy.
It's going to take me about a year, give or take a few months, to reach at my slow-and-steady-pace but it will be worth it.
And will give me plenty of time to design the tattoo and save up for it.
