I weighed myself this morning. I only did it cause I started this new "shake" that my friend Christine recommended. (She gave me the last of her 'ginormous jug of it so I could try before investing.) I'd like to give you the name, but I honestly don't remember. It promotes muscle strength, which of course, the more lean muscle mass you have the more fat you can burn without getting all bulked up. She has lost a pant size using it for about 2 months. She hasn't been exercising, so I think if I combine that with it, I could do a little better. I still need to learn to eat though, 3 meals a day, not just one huge one at 6pm.
Anyway, the scale...I was shocked. I am not sure if it was because of the holidays or what. I don't feel like I over did it, but my scale says differently. Frankly, I think it is demon possessed.
I am also looking to invest in a treadmill. A nice used one if I can find it. This time of year means finding one is difficult. Those resolutions and all... I have trouble keeping up the effort of having to go to a gym after work and finding a place for my daughter to go, while I do. My mom has been gracious enough to let me use her equipment in the past, but I find the same issue of having to leave the house after a long day of work, hard and of course the temptation of just sitting on her comfy couch and visiting, instead of actually working out. I could be more dedicated if I just had one in my living room. Between the treadmill and Pilates, I can lose. Exercise is key for me.
