When school got out in the spring all of my routines went poof. I stopped exercising regularly, stopped tracking my food, and started eating more empty calories. Not like I would have before I changed my attitude but still, there it was, sugar and soda and fries almost every day. It's a wonder I didn't gain any weight. I did, however, notice that my shorts were a little less comfortable and have been wearing my larger size jeans.

When school started a couple of weeks ago I started making some steps back in the healthy direction. I'm still not doing everything that I know I need to be doing regularly but at least I am doing it all weekly! The scale hasn't budged an ounce in months but today the receptionist and 2 therapists at the clinic I take my daughter to all mentioned they thought I was looking better since we were there 2 weeks ago! So something MUST be happening, even if I haven't really noticed yet!

Hm, maybe I should try those shorts again... emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting back into your healthier lifestyle. Remember, changes happen within our body before outside our body, and your mood can change based on whether you're getting proper nutrition or not. I'd be willing to bet that you looked more awake, lively, bright and shining, and/or happier. Even without losing a pound or an inch, that change in your demeanor can make a difference. Try this: sit in a slumped over position for 5 minutes, then sit up straight for 5 minutes. Even just a posture change can change how you feel and look.

    Keep it up!
