Lady Amezan Posted October 14, 2018 Author Report Share Posted October 14, 2018 Today I weighed myself on the new, hopefully more accurate scale. And I'm 10 pounds heavier than I thought I was. This is disappointing. On the other hand, according to the old, wildly inaccurate scale, I've lost 9 pounds during this challenge. So..... I have this strange feeling of being exactly where I started. I also take measurements once a month, and everything is exactly the same or a little bit smaller. So depending on how you think about it, I've suddenly gained ten pounds, recently lost nine pounds and also stayed exactly the same. I guess that's why I'm trying to focus on habit-building, not numbers on a scale! Habits this challenge: 1. I was 100% at avoiding sugary drinks at work and substituting water instead. That felt great! 2. I did really well avoiding screens while eating during the first three weeks. This past week, I kept finding excuses to keep the TV on during dinner. (But breakfast and lunch still screen-free.) 3. I did get physically activity--either a yoga program or walking--every day except two days when I was sick and coughing a lot. The yoga especially has helped reduce my aches and pains, making walking more pleasant. 4. I washed the dishes every day all month except twice, which is like an all time record for me. That feels amazing. I ordered some loot last week and it arrived by international mail yesterday--a cool journal to write goals and track habits in. The challenge this week: continue my good habits. I'm really good at abandoning good habits! 4 Quote "Believe that a further shore is reachable from here." --Seamus Heaney My character sheet Link to comment
