Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don’t collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don’t really mean anything.
Just saw Karen the nutritionist. I had a pretty good week, both in regards to food and exercise, so I was hoping to be down a couple pounds. After four weeks of staying steady, and not losing anything, I was hoping to see some results. And I did. When she weighed me I was down by 2 pounds. I was so thrilled about that. 2 more pounds to go to be down a stone, that’s 14 pounds in total. Its great to be seeing results again. I think increasing the exercise really helped, as well as eating more fruit and vegetables. I couldn’t believe I’d lost weight, since I had my cousins 18th birthday party last Sunday and I’d eaten a slice of cake with cream and chocolate in it. Other than that though I hadn’t really had anything bad this past week. It feels good to be back on track again.

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.
So I got weighed today, And I got a great result. I was down 1.5 pounds. Considering I was on vacation and had a couple of treats, I think thats brilliant. Now I just need to motivate myself to exercise more. I think if I exercise more I will see even better results. She measured my waste too. I am down 3 CM since I started. That is 1.5 inches. She told me that one inch is a dress size. So another half an inch and I’ll be down 2 dress sizes! Yay so proud and happy. We set some new goals. I decided for the next six weeks I’d work on my exercise, and hopefully up it and really start getting into it. I’m doing ok with both food and my water intake. I dont think I need much guidance there. I joked with Karen that I could probably teach her group for her, she runs a group each friday for people who are losing weight. I prefer individual sessions though. Not sure I’d feel comfortable in a group setting. Overall though I am happy and very pleased with my results.
