3 Mother F'ing Pounds
When I woke up this morning I weighed myself and I was up 3 lbs. 3 LBS! How in the hell am I up 3 lbs from yesterday? I've been sticking to plan so well this week and getting all my workouts in. But 3 lbs? Really? I know that I shouldn't weigh everyday and I shouldn't put so much stock into a number on a scale, but that seems like a big gain. I've avoided soda and all drinks except tea, one cup of coffee and water alone. I'm going to stay the course, but this is a very discouraging day. I know it's a long term journey and I really need to get to where I only weigh once a week and that I'm ok with just making progress. What other ways can I measure progress? I know big things like changing sizes in clothing and being able to run further, but what about on a smaller scale?
