Poor poor predictable Sarah

Tuesday's weigh-in and of course after last weeks "loss" this week I gained... 3 pounds... so says the scale. Monday I weighed in (although I am NOT supposed to do this and really shouldn't) and was the same as I was the Tuesday prior so the difference in one day makes me think that my scale is a big fat liar.

My body, on the other hand, is telling me a different story. My clothes feel different again. My pants are riding lower on my hips and getting baggy in the booty. My belly just feels smaller to me. (ok a little personal peek into me on the potty... when I go pee I hold my belly for some reason...I don't know why... I don't know when it started... I just do it....I just wrap my hands around it like a little belly hug). Well I feel like I have less belly to hug in the last couple of weeks.

It may sound funny but I feel taller. I just feel longer and straighter. I think that has more to do with attitude than anything but Í do definitely feel a wee bit taller now days.

We'll meet with our trainer again in a couple weeks to get weighed in, have our fitness levels tested and get our BMI's done. I'm very curious as to how much fat percentage I've lost. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised at my BMI even if the numbers in weight aren't what I'm wishing for.

This weekend Jayne is going to bring me over some size 16-18 clothing that she is donating to "the cause" (how very cool of her... let's give a big shout out to Jayne!!!!! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy Jaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyynnneeeeee!!!!!). I'm very curious to see if anything fits. When I started this journey (and I'm not sure if I've shared this on here before) but I was in a size 28. I "believe" I am now in 20's and some 18's in shirts. My upper body is way better looking than it's lower half and wears a smaller size. The 18's in pants may be wishful thinking but I'll be glad to have some more "goal" clothing keep me motivated.

So that's my news for today's weigh in. Fingers crossed for a good healthy week this week!

I hug my belly when I pee too! If I take a bath I try to see how much I can grab and usually end up getting a little grossed out with myself.

I don't know if I get overly confident with my losses, which in turn makes me slack off the next week or what, but I tend to do the same thing sometimes. Then it's like back to basics to get rid of that gain. I hate the cycle I sometimes get myself in!

I saw on the nest you were looking for a workout music bio (if I remember reading!). I found this great site...check it out:

I'll try again; doesn't seem as it all copied:

We all have weeks like that. You should be proud of what you have and will continue to accomplish. I am pulling for you.
