day 37

I got a new scale. It is meant to measure your BMI and body water (although the body water part of it always shows an error) The one problem is that, since it is digital, it is more accurate than my cheapo scale that I got rid of, and I weighed in, although two pounds down, and it measured me as eight pounds up.  Discouraging, but it does not change the amount of weight that I have lost. Eight pounds in all now, and I am showing that I weigh the same as when I started, so I need to count up. According to this scale, I would have started at 243. eeeek! Now, I am at 235 according to the new, digital scale. Yay! Every step counts.

Went to the gym today and did abs and 40 minutes of cardio. A nutritionist/trainer at a gym I used to go to told me to start by doing 15-20 minutes of weights/strength training in order to burn off calories from carbs and then do cardio, and you will go straight in to more effective calorie torching.  I may be getting the specifics wrong, but I remember the times and the exercises, and carbs first… so yeah. lol.

took more than a month… slightly… but my first eight pounds is down.

‘In other news’- I have toned up, and slimmed down. I went to Ross and tj maxx today, and found that I am now fitting in to most large sized shirts. 😀 Yay!!!!!!! It has been a couple of years since I have fit into large shirts. I have been in extra large, which I have found are getting baggy lately. I was right. I did not know that eight pounds would make such a difference. Thank God! 🙂 I am making progress.

In all things give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.- 1 Thessalonians 5:18
