I'm not thrilled - I'm up. But I'm blaming TOM and the possibility that muscle weighs more than fat.

Last week: 263.8
this week: 264.4

I'm up .6 of a lb.

Still, I'm happy with the changes I've made so far and I plan on kicking it up a notch this week.

Today, I've already been out for a 1/2 hour walk. And later today I plan on hitting the treadmill for at least an hour. I've curbed most of my late night munchies. Last night I wrote that the kitchen was closed, but I did open it again for a big bowl of blueberries....just love them plain. It was a huge treat, with not a lot of damage like chips or popcorn.

I'm still anxious for the gym days, when the kids are in preschool...I'm counting down the days. Only a few short weeks, and I'm hoping to get down in weight by then...maybe another 7 lbs. or so. I would love to hit 250, but that's 15 lbs. and I'm not sure I can do it so soon.

I often under estimate the affect of TOM on my weekly weight loss. Then a few days later it suddenly drops and I think "oh yeah..." As if I'm surprised every month!

I also notice on blog after blog people commenting about losing after exercise followed by a day of rest. I think sore muscles retain water which causes that temporary gain, but don't quote me on it!

I love blueberries, too! We're going to go on a picking expedition soon, although we eat alomost as many as we drop in the boxes. Like everyone else I suppose!
