Summer wardrobe, here I come!

 
Weigh In: 142.5 (+0.6)

It's weigh-in day and I'm up 0.6 pounds. It wasn't a surprise and I'm not losing sleep over it. I had a good exercise week - 315 minutes working out, 10.75 miles on the treadmill, 2 strength workouts. Next week that pesky 0.6 pounds will be gone.

I truly appreciate all the positive, encouraging comments on my last post. You all have me convinced that I can do this. :)

So now that I've said I am going to do it, I just need to figure out how. Because the progress has been painfully slow thus far.

I've been thinking on it. I won't write out the entire thought process this morning, mainly because I don't have time. I probably should write it all down, so it will be there to remind me. But for now I have come to this conclusion: I have to pay attention to what I'm eating.

That's it. My big plan. Pay attention, and really think about the choices I make and how they relate to my weight loss goal. Sounds simple doesn't it? Sounds like what I should have been doing all along? I'm not convinced that I have been, at least not consistently.

I still need to track what I'm eating. I'm not sure whether I will do that by continuing with Weight Watchers, going back to Fitday, or just writing it down in a notebook. When it comes right down to it, I don't think it's the tracking method that counts, I think it comes down to having the right attitude. So that's what I'm going to work on.

Wish me luck!

Good luck!!
And the Bag Lady is a wee bit discouraged today - she paid a lot of attention yesterday to what she was putting in her mouth, and she tried to get a little more exercise than she usually does. She got on the scale this morning.
Gained 2 lbs.
Crap!

I agree, its not the tracking... anyone can track with any software and if you are not utilizing WW then by all means save your money and try it on your own!

I think you have a great attitute you should have those pounds off in no time!! You are doing super on the exercise!!!!

You are going to kick those 7 pounds' butt!

Good for you for calling out the awareness issue -- paying attention. That's today's resolution for me too. I need to slow down and appreciate what I'm eating. Then I won't keep shovelling it in :)

Good luck with it!

That is an amazing amount of exercise - excellent job.

Your plan sounds wonderful and you're going to do great. Your attitude will get you there; your actions will fall into line with it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and welcoming me back. I appreciate it! It means a lot.
