Tiny sunbeam

Yesterday I was spot on. I was lovely. Resilient. I ate within my calorie limit - even while I enjoyed one of Seattle's little treasures, a mini donut from the Pike Place Market. (I had to chew on a lot of gum to not eat more) then I burned 425 calories on the elliptical, did my arm work and some squats, and am a little sore in the arms today. This morning the scale said 227.8 - which made me sigh with relief that Tuesday was temporary bloating or something. I saw a teeny little ray of light yesterday - and it was coming from me! I was able to do what I need to do, and all it takes is focus and thought and determination. I gotta make that beam wider and wider!

What a great moment - thanks for sharing it with us.

It also brings back memories for me....isn't that where there is a fish market and they frequently throw fish back and forth at each other? And the original Starbucks is close by? A lovely place!

Nice! Glad you came right back down. It's always better to keep your eye on the long term trend of your weight changes.

Way to go!

I read a great quote just this morning that fits in nicely here: "Roads with the most traffic get widened. The ones rarely used fall into disrepair."

Kudos to you for widening the right road!
