Pounds & Inches vs. Food & Treats

My health and weight loss journal

I have a confession to make: I've gained a little weight. Only about two pounds... see at first I wasn't losing anything for a few weeks, but I could fit smaller sizes. So, I figured that I was losing inches and not pounds, which is fine with me but a little frustrating that the scale got stuck.

Then I started being a little bad. First I went back to drinking a cup of coffee (with raw sugar and creamer or condensed milk). Okay, let me be honest: I went back to drinking a MUG of coffee. Then all of a sudden I was drinking two mugs per day. Then I wasn't drinking as much water... then I wasn't working out as much and then there was this past week:

- Some Starbucks
- Two slices of cake
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Homemade chicken soft tacos (two nights!)
- A Blimpie's sub (okay, it was the combo but I got the low fat chips! Okay, I also had a root beer! Geez, are you happy now!?)
- 4 glasses of wine (not in one day!)
- Some chocolate kisses
- One of those large, fresh baked cookies from Publix
- Oh yea, I almost forgot the Coke and the half a tub of popcorn. SIGH!

So, as you can see, I fell off the wagon, but I'm back on today. Although I'm craving the coffee I haven't had any and drank my green & white tea with my breakfast. And I'll go back to treating myself about once a week unless it's Skinny Cow ice cream, which is the absolute best "health" food ever.

I also did 30 minutes of yoga today and yesterday, and I hope it warms up so I can go walking in the park sometime this week.

I'm glad I got that off my chest. It was a big secret weighing (excuse the pun!) me down. However, don't you dare say anything about my weight loss ticker... yes, it has went up a little, but that's only temporary. Now that you know I've been cheating you can keep me straight!

Wish me luck!

Oh, one more thing... here's a little encouragement for me: I've noticed that I look a little thinner in pictures so I guess I'm not doing too bad. Let me know what you think:

This was last summer... probably around August.

This was about a week ago... can you tell the difference from the pic above?

This was in September, I think...

And this was last week...
