Scale Tale: A Very Good Result

There's a royal celebration accompanying this week's weigh-in. Why? Well, let's see what Mr. Tanita had to say this A.M.--


I love round weigh-in numbers, particularly when they are on the downside. So that makes it down 22 pounds from highest (299 in 2004) and 12 pounds down since the blog started (May 2007).

I still don't have my exercise mojo working. That's always a challenge for me. Even moreso than portions.

I really do think that getting two good night's sleep this week has promoted this. I have had sleep disturbances that left it hard for me to focus enough to read, say, a novel or write creatively. And getting good rest is beneficial for the Princess' brain. Perhaps it's beneficial for the Princess' weigh-ins, too.

Could be.

I had to miss one of my fave shows--HOUSE--to get that rest, but I must admit, it was worth it. I still could use a couple more hours, I think, but right now, the lure of egg whites with low-fat cheese, a low-fat waffle, and some juice and coffee are gonna nix any idea of sliding back between the covers.

Anyway, I'm happy.

Later, fellow travelers. It's time for breakfast. The Princess is famished.

Well done! I also have a thing for round numbers on the scale.. lol. Don't know why really.
I also find incorporating exercise as a routine into my life very challenging. Something to work on...

Good job princess!

Congratulations, Princess!! You are doing SO well!

I found as my scale's numbers got lower, my motivation increased. I'm sure you'll find the same.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I really appreciate your comment.

All the very best,

3.4 lbs? Great job!!! I'm impressed!

I'm right there with you on exercising. It's so hard to just get out there!

Congrats on the loss and good luck this week!

Heather said...

Great job! that is a nice loss for the week. I think sleep does make a difference. Since I moved, I wake up almost an hr earlier and I definitely feel less motivated to exericse and be active. I am sure activity would help this, but I cant tell that to my body in the morning!
