WI day

It's Monday, WI day, and that darn scale hasn't budged all week. 

I had a great week as far as eating. Stayed OP and made good choices all week long.

Got to my meeting to find that I am down 0.6 lbs. Well, at least my streak continues, but after last weeks 0.2 and now this I am not very happy.

I KNOW what the issue is - EXERCISE!!!! I just need to do it. I have been so lazy, and so lucky that I have managed to lose for 19 weeks in a row with really doing much in the way of activity, but these past two weeks have shown me that I REALLY need to change things up or my body is not really going to budge much from this stage.

So, after I finish entering this blog I am going to do day one of the Jillian Michaels Great One Month Slim-down. I found this site via a posting on the WW message boards, and it looks interesting.

My dear friend and WW buddy Patty achieved her 'lifetime' today at our meeting. I was so proud of her. She got to get up and tell everyone about her journey. She is a true inspiration to me.

The best part of my day so far was just before the meeting started. A woman who has been at the meetings maybe 3 or 4 times before got up from her seat and came over and asked me if she could sit beside me. She said that I have been so inspiring to her and she just really wanted to sit with me. That made me feel really great!

So off to exercise and have another OP eating week - hoping for a much better # at the scales next week, so that I can get closer to my CUBA goal, and be a bigger help to Team Lynn!!!

Good job on the loss! The key to exercising is finding something you enjoy doing. If such a thing exsist. I still havent found mine haha.. thats sweet that the lady wanted to sit with you. Just shows that someone is always watching and you never know who your inspiring! good feeling!

Congrats on staying OP especially when the scale is stuck. The hard work WILL show on the scale soon.

I was the same! I lost consistently for a few months without exercising, and then my body gave me a reality check.

The hardest part about working out is actually getting yourself to do it. Think of how amazing you feel after and how happy you'll be on the scale!

Good luck!

I too struggle with exercise!!!! At least we all know we are just alike. It's so simple what we need to do to lose the weight, yet all we need to do is do it. Why can't I get myself to do this regularly I don't know. Hang in there. You are doing great! I'm struggling with the food part more lately.
