THIS IS ME!!! In spite of the scale plateauing for what seems like forever but what has actually been about 3 -4 weeks I am still keeping on keeping on.
My exercise has been GREAT and consistent. My food has been completely on target with no wavering. My body is looking better I believe but the scale shows none of that. Which is why I do know it is only one small measure of success and when I say small I mean very very tiny.
It is bound to move when it is good and ready and like Becca said, when you are on stage no one knows your weight which is an excellent point and something I need to remember.
Tim has laid down the law and said NO WEIGHING! DO NOT STEP ON THE SCALE!! So that is what I will do.
We are headed out of town this weekend overnight for a get away with some friends. We are going to watch some state title basketball games. Both boys and girls teams from our town are in the games and then a neighboring towns boys team also so we are going to cheer them on. Oh, and we are hitting up the horse races while we are there too. A couple of days with friends and no kids. WOOT!! Should be fun. I do have ALL of my food packed for tonight and all day tomorrow and I have my workout clothes with me to get in some cardio outside in the morning. I will do some running/walking on the golf course that we are staying near. NO REST for a bikini competitor. HA!
Have a great weekend ya'll and thank you again for all of the continued support and encouragement from those that comment on my blog to those that comment to me in person.
