Weigh-in: 172.6 lb lost so far: 7.4 lb still to go: 23.6 lb Diet followed 100%

I made it through yesterday, no damage done. I stayed true to the diet and exercise. Thanks to the encouraging comments and suggestions from yesterday's journal, I learned how to determine if I was in a calorie deficit. Weigh every day for 2 weeks and take weekly averages to see a true picture of what is happening with my body. In all the years and all the diets I never heeded this simple advice. Yesterday I said why not? The straight talking guy at aworkoutroutine.com made a lot of sense. (Thank you Illdill) So I bravely stepped on the dreaded scale this morning (believe me it took courage), and voila! The weight I gained yesterday plus the pound I was hoping to lose, gone! 4.6 pounds in a day. You could have knocked me over with a feather and I'm obviously no lightweight. Some of it might be back tomorrow and that's ok now. I'll wait somewhat patiently for that weekly average. Once I see those numbers I will adjust the diet accordingly if necessary. I feel more encouraged about losing the weight this time than I have in 10 years. This is the best I have felt since my husband of 34 years left me 2 weeks ago. It's my time now, time to be the best me I can be.
Thank you Fat Secret family for helping me get this far. I couldn't have done it without all the suggestions, encouraging words and prayers. It's truly a blessing to be here.

And yet another betrayal. This time by my own body. Every day last week I ate 1300 or less calories. I swam laps three times, did some other cardio, lifted arm weights and stretched daily. I even gave up desert. I have never given up desert before, ever. I am sure I had at least a 600 calorie deficit every day, and that is a very conservative number. Despite all this my "friend" the bathroom scale says that I gained 3 1/2 pounds in a week. Weigh-ins are the cause of more mood swings than anything I know. Why even bother trying so hard. 😵
Later in the day: on an upward note, I made a protein shake that tasted like the middle of a pumpkin pie! To a bullet cup I added 1 cup lactaid fat free milk (use whatever you have), 1/2 c pure pumpkin purée, 3 mini scoops pumpkin seed protein powder (vanilla would work great too), 1 tsp honey, pinch of pumpkin pie spice, splash of vanilla extract and one ice cube. Process in the bullet/blender about a minute. Delicious and nutritious for 273 calories, 29 grams of protein, 26 net carbs, 4 grams of fiber and very little fat. Thanks for reading.. ☺️
