Sunday weight = Friday weight. That is a success for me, and sets me up for a loss this week. By all means I have room for improvement. I went over my weekly calorie goal by a few hundred calories, and made more than my allotted share of less than stellar choices. It was a very strong exercise week however, and I am damn sore.
If I count exercise I am under my calorie goal, but I don't. That is a slippery slope, and I view exercise as a fitness tool, not a weight loss tool.
I am 6 lbs away from my level one goal and I feel mentally poised to get there.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
