Yeah, it was only down a half a pound. I could make excuses about retaining water or whatever, but honestly? I ate more than usual in the past two weeks. I also didn't miss one run and have amped my miles up quite a bit. With the exception of a Thanksgiving free-for-all and a couple extra glasses of wine that I probably didn't need, I really ate mostly healthy stuff, and ate only when I was hungry. To me, even though I am hungry a lot more than I used to be, that's a win. Because, I FEEL really good and thinner and healthier and "runner-er" and all of that. That is technically what I'm after. Once the scale gets below the 200 mark, I am kind of over it. I still want to use it as a tool and a guide, but as long as I can get under two bills, I am not going to stress.
After I weighed in this morning, then got ready for work, I took another picture. this one:
I think I look like I am starting to get closer to my goal here, and that, whether it is a half a pound difference or 100 pounds difference, is worth it.
Tomorrow, my theories on black turtlenecks and other clothing items favored by larger ladies the world over.
