Weigh In Friday – Week #2

Starting weight:  156.8

Last week’s weight:  156.2

Current weight:  157

Pounds lost:  +.8

Yep, that’s right.  My weight is up.  I’m reluctant to say that it is an actual gain, because I’m about 95% sure it is mostly fluid.  I was already preparing myself last night for the step on the scale this morning.

I’m not totally into the losing weight thing yet though.  I’m doing little things, here and there that help, but I haven’t jumped into it with both feet yet.  I’m not sure why, other than I just haven’t made the solid effort.

I don’t want this to become a “Oh I’m not getting anywhere, I’ll try again some other time.” I just need to buckle down. 

I know I can do this, I just have to start making the real efforts to do what I need to do.
