Scale wars - Alice 1, Scale 1.

So this morning my scale was less evil. Here are my last three weigh ins:

July 28 - 187lbs
August 4 - 188lbs
August 11 - 185.2lbs

So I dropped almost 3lbs this week! I am aware that last week was most likely a water weight gain and so the loss is more likely a pound each week but who cares. I have lost weight and am happy about it. I ran more this week so I'm pretty sure that didn't hurt with the weight loss. I also got into the pain zone on Tuesday so that should help next week. My leg muscles are still a little tender from that run even after a day off! So I know it was a great workout, and will do a nice little easy run today too.

One funny thing is that my friend Cecilia asked me if I was eating enough so I looked at my week and realized that I used a lot of points on snacky foods and not filling stuff, so this week I focused more on using the points for food, even if it's stuff I baked or cooked and less on snacks like freezies, and I think it really made a difference. Maybe I wasn't eating enough food. It always sounds funny to me that you can stall weight loss by not eating enough.

So after my gain last week I'm very proud that I didn't let the gain phase me and instead focused on doing better this week. Now tomorrow I leave for my mothers for a little over a week so my posts may be few until next weekend, but I've written my Friday favourites ahead of time so they will still post themselves. If I don't manage to write, I hope you all have a wonderful week, and I hope I don't overdue it on goodies while I'm away!

    It is always good when we can keep our focus even when the scale does its nasty thing.
