It's been awhile since I've bothered to get on the scale. I don't know what's going on, but I just haven't felt like dealing with the ups and downs it shows. But, this morning, I got up and decided to face the music. I had all this time to lose 8 pounds before my birthday in two weeks (how did THAT happen?!?!?) and nothing. I GAINED weight actually and you know, I just didn't want to deal with seeing the number go up again. The thing is, you can't stop something if you don't know what you need to stop. So, I got on the scale this morning to see how much MORE damage I had done over the last week. And low and behold, I was down .8 pounds. You could have knocked me over with a feather. Did NOT see that coming.
So, while I won't be hitting that 8 pound loss I had been aiming for, I can still see a loss in the future. I can possibly get CLOSE to what I wanted for my birthday if I hunker down and do this thing. I have lots of running to do between then and now (about 30 miles actually) and if I keep my food under control, there's a good shot of me getting close to that 8 pound loss. So, here we go - Operation 2 Weeks is in effect! How much can I lose between today and Oct. 8th?
