My scale is stubborn as any mule.

Scale dropped the 4 pounds of fluid its been holding the last couple of days. So I'm back at my 190. Happy about that but disappointed not to see a loss this week.
I was really hoping to be in the 180's before now. Anyway on the positive side
i've lost 3.5 inches off my waist and looking at myself in the mirror I can see
positive changes in my body. My husband even teased me and called me skinny the other day saying he could definitly see a difference around my stomach area. So thats something...and I have exercised every day the last couple of weeks and i'm seeing some real gains in my cardio. So its good.

    Heather, I am so happy you are using other indicators in addition to the scales. Be proud of your accomplishments. 3.5 inches from your waistline is awesome!

I think I might faint....

One of those witches on the fit in the britches team must have really figured out how to cast a spell on my scale...because...OMG...I still can't believe it...its down again today...2 more pounds and get this....TOM is here!!!!
I can't believe it its dropped altogether 7 pounds this week. so I think my upswing when it went up to 197 must have been fluid, but even so that means in real pounds I lost 4 real deal pounds.

Whoooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooo I'm doing ariel stunts on my flying broom. tee heeeeee.
I can put 3 more pumpkins down for the witches team this friday all ready. hurrah!

Now YOU put a spell on MY scale because it's not moving fast enough.

I guess all that wacking of my evil, demonic, monstrous scale must work. I dropped 4 pounds this week, and then got on the scale this morning and was down another pound. Whooo hooo I'm down 5 this week!
It was either the wacking it took, or one of the witches on the fit in your britches witches team at fit, fabulous and forty in the Halloween spooktacular challenge casting a spell on it. ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR....
It could be just that I ate right all week, and I have burned so far this week 2150 calories and will burn more today.

Holy Moly folks ...this actually works. emoticon

Big hugs to all of you, especially those who were there during my melt down..I hate my evil scale day.

I'm so pumped right now!

Tonight at work I was soooooooooooooooooo not busy. Normally I'd just read a book or go online but I decided instead to walk at a really good pace in circles in the lobby area.

Well I got going and I didnt' stop for an hour and a half.

I hope no one was looking they would have thought I was mad...this woman walking round and round and round with a kind of glazed look on her face. If they saw me they probably thought...She looks nuts...lets not check in there.

The great news is though...I went to and used their walking calulator. It asked me my weight and speed. I figured I was easily doing the 3.2 my treadmill shows...and it said...

Wait for it....

468 calories burned...whooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo.

That is on top of the 209 I burned on the treadmill this morning.

Wow! I'm so doing my happy dance...well in my head i'm doing my happy legs feel like limp noodles are no longer up to the happy dance.

Isn't it great though....I'm really starting to catch on to how even a little five minute burst can burn calories.

I'm feeling so much better, and thank you all for your support yesterday.

    Yeah! *arm pump*
I LOVE it!
I do the same thing as far as logging it on spark and getting psyched about how many calories burned.
Today when I found out biking around the block twice burned more calories than I thought I went on to do that three more times during the day for a total of close to 400 calories burned. Feels SO good to see those numbers. Great motivator.

    That's so awesome Heather!

While on my walk today everytime I came to a "don't walk" light, I started doing side steps. Probably looked like I was doing the pee pee dance! LOL

A girl has to do what a girl has to do!
