Sometimes the body is very frustrating. I seem to be back pedaling and gaining a pound or so. I know the body fluctuates, etc, but it is a bit defeating sometimes. No ... not that time of the month (I haven't had one of those in years). So ... not sure what it is.

Calories - getting around 900-1100 a day
Water - getting at least 64 oz
exercise - taking 30 min walks and a little extra at home

Weight - plus 1.

Go figure. On the upside, I was pondering yesterday the goal of 10k steps per day. For those of us who work long hours behind a desk, I find it difficult to even come close. I managed to get in 6500 steps. This was after my 30 min brisk walk, regular daily office walking, and coming home and walking and dancing in place while talking to Pete (SO) . Bless his heart, I was bouncing around the room like an idiot, and he didn't say a word!

How many steps per day are you all getting?

Still in LOVE with my SenseWear ...

Allison: I've had that happen SO many times and it's really frustrating! The good news is that it's just "shifting" (whatever that is...) And next week you'll lose a lot! It always works that way, but I know that doesn't make you feel better right now! :( Just keep plugging, and remember... it could have been a gain of 5 pounds and would have been if you'd not been doing this diet!! Keep your chin up! Sara

Thanks Sara ...

I will keep my chin up ... I have invested my time, energy and MONEY into this program, not stopping now!

Congrats on your 3 lbs! I hope to join you soon.
