The scale showed I gained 1.4 pounds, to move my total back to 202 gone. Whoop. I will lose that over the next couple of weeks, and I'm not worried in the least. I have a feeling I know what happened ..... I didn't follow my usual meal schedule today, and sometimes the scale doesn't appreciate that!
But the good thing is that this week, in spite of the uptake, I feel GOOD. I worked my butt off today doing some volunteer work. I feel good not only because I was helping a cause I believe in, but because I got some needed physical labor in. And I stood or walked for most of the day.... 2 years ago, there is no way I'd have been able to do that. Now that I'm in stop-mode, I feel the aches setting in, but I KNOW that 2 or 3 years ago, I could not have done that type of work. I'd have needed a sitting-only job. Instead, I was able to pull t-shirts, lift boxes, move and groove doing things, and enjoy it. I just hate that I forgot my pedometer, because I planned to track the steps I took.
And my clothes feel great. I have good health and stamina that I never would have had years ago. I'm getting older, wiser, and better. 1.4 pounds can't compare to that!
