Well Today was officially the week 4 weigh-in. I have decided to be consistent in that I will take a 10:30AM, post lunch, fully clothed (shoes included) weight as I have done the previous 2 weigh-ins (no week 3 weigh-in occurred). I have been working out fairly regularly the past 2 weeks, and I have been trying to be conscious of portion control in my eating. I have seen a noticeable difference when it comes to my endurance on my cardio exercises. I have also noticed my suites fitting slightly better in the last week. I was for sure that I would get on the scale and see 2-4 LBS knocked off my weight....NOPE!! DENIED! 220 for a third straight time. I guess I had a few too many pieces of candy during the Halloween festivities. I am going to say that I have gained a little muscle mass while working out and that is the reason my weight remains the same. I will not be discouraged - yet. These next two months are ALWAYS the two months when I gain weight. I think if I can come in the Monday after New Years and weigh in under 220 - that would be a successful holiday season. I will keep working out and watching what I eat. However, I will still enjoy the Holidays. That means eating too much on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and not passing up the cookies either. I just need to keep at it. Remind myself that it is a slow process and if I stay with it and get determined, then the weight will fall off - hopefully.
