I really hate scales. I know I shouldn't put much into them, but how can you not? It's the one way to measure how you are doing. So, I have been without soda for 3 weeks. I have been following a program consistently for 2 weeks. I have exercised more than ever in my adult life. Please understand that I used to drink 2 at least RT 44 Vanilla Dr Peppers from Sonic every single day. I drank like 1200 calories plus the crappy food I ate. Like a sausage McGriddle most mornings and foot long subway sandwich or cheese enchiladas for lunch. I'd sneak a candy bar or 2 most days. Now I stick to my points and stay away from those things completely. I drink water.. lots of it and nothing else. I've lost 7lbs. I can't break 300. I know that is pretty decent weight loss, but damn! I guess old age really does slow it down. I am so glad Chris isn't here doing it with me because he would already be down 20lbs and I would quit. That's my pattern. But no longer! I will keep on trudging on and I will beat this!! I'm gonna win this win this freaking DietBet and I am going to break 300lbs then I'm getting rid of the scale and will only weigh at WW. I CANNOT base my success on a scale. Ok.. that is all.
