Patience PLEASE!

I had a great week. I monitored everything and had some killer workouts BUT.....I didn't lose anything this week. IN FACT, when I weighed in this morning, I had gained a &$%#(*@& pound!

It must be the stress of worrying about Allen, it couldn't be anything else! I normally only weigh once a week, but I am tempted to get on the scale again in the morning to see if it was just a fluke. I'll let you know!

I had a great yoga session this morning. It was very calming and I am glad I did it! Tomorrow morning is an hour of weights and 30 minutes of cardio.....

For dinner tonight I roasted a chicken with lemon, an ear of corn and a nice green salad with lemon and olive oil drizzle. Medjohl dates for desert. Yummy!!!

I hope your weekend is going great!!!


  1. Oh! The devastation of the scale! Although it's always easier to advise (than live it, in person)...I say, wait a week and look forward to the lovely surprise of the downward movement of the scale next Saturday..."don't let the bastard (scale) get you down"! It's not about the scale and the number. It's about...well, you know what it's about...desire, determination, discipline & de-patience! ;-)

  2. I just saw something on that I thought made a lot of sense - one of their articles said that your body has to feel "safe enough to let go of the weight" - meaning, stress and emotions are managed, nutrition is maximized, etc. I thought that was such a helpful way of thinking about weight loss from a holistic perspective.

    I'm TRYING to follow in your foot steps Patty! Keep up the good work. - Sarah
