Surprised

I was pleasantly surprised when I got on the scale today. I didnt expect much, and with TOM starting, I thought if anything, I would be up. Surprisingly, I was down .8 to 158.4! Imagine that - just when I stopped caring so much about the scale, I see the loss I wanted to see for weeks.

The last time I was 158 was 5 weeks ago, so I am thrilled! Ill take it as a sign that mentally and physically I have the right thing going on. Im not doing anything differently, so maybe the exercise is finally starting to pay off. I certainly am not stressing any less since things at my work are more chaotic than ever. I feel crummy too with this cold still raging, but I guess my body is still thanking me for all this hard work with the exercise.

Whatever the case, Im happy!

That's great news! You may find you move slower as you approach your ultimate goal, but this just shows you'll get there in the end. :)

hold on LOOSELY instead of clutching--it finally works out!

It's like that old wives tale:
a watched kettle never boils.
You look away and then suddenly steam!
Well done. Persevere.
