Writer's Block

I have had a horrible case of writer's block all this week! Everywhere, the blogs, the Examiner page, etc. I hate it when that happens! Going to have to do something to get myself jump started again.

On another note, I've been exercising 6 days a week since January 30th. I had been switching back and forth between Walk Away the Pounds and Yoga for the Rest of Us.This week, I decided to start trying to do the 2 mile Walk Away the Pounds walk, I did it Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Monday and Wednesday I did the 1 mile walks and Friday, I did the yoga DVD because my heels had been bothering me so I thought I should switch it up a bit. I don't think ever in my whole life have I exercised consistently for this long, so this is HUGE!!!! I also went to the doctor yesterday morning to have blood drawn to check my blood sugar levels (hoping they've come down a bunch). While I was there, I weighed. I had lost 3.5 pounds since November. I had hoped for more but then I realized that I have probably gained some muscle from the workouts, and so I decided to just be happy about it. LOL. From the fall of 2010 (before my surgery) until now, I've lost 24.5 pounds.

That's great!!!
I can also say from experience that it's discouraging sometimes to look at the scale and see that you didn't "lose as much as you thought"...however it's more about how you LOOK different! Like you mentioned, muscle weighs more than fat so the scale may be deceiving. It's when you clothes fit different and you can start doing things you couldn't do before that always helped me realize I'm losing weight.
Keep up the great work! I'm proud of you!!! =)

That is great. Besides, making changes for the better is always a great step, and the scale does not really matter.
