Need your words of encouragement (Part II) - Con't from yesterday

So to all the ladies that gave me words of encouragement, today was the day I got on the scale.  Actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought.  I had gained a little over 5 pounds (which really shows when you are 5'2").  I really thought I had gained at least 10.  But, it was good that I got my wakeup call at this point in the gain.  Now I am sure I can get control of it before it gets control of me.  I want to lose at least 10 pounds and hopefully more.  Today I went to the store and got ingredients for a black bean chili and makings for a salad.  I want to eat healthy through this journey.  Thanks so much ladies!  I will keep you updated.  I'm off to do my 3 miles on my eliptical.

Oh, you are SO much better than I am.  I really need to lose about 25 pounds - 35 would be great!  So, good luck to you.  I'm sure you'll reach your goal!!!  Me?  Not so sure.  Smiley Sad

It's good you recognize the 5 pounds as a 'set back' and are addressing it before it becomes an avalanche!

 

Best wishes in your ongoing progress.
