It's just a number right?

I have missed posting picture of my eats so I finally took some yesterday. I have been trying to get creative with the food I have on my list to eat. So for lunch yesterday I made a version of a Spanish type rice. I had 4 ounces of chicken a fresh tomato cut up and some home made taco seasoning. I heat that up and then add 3/4 cup of brown rice. It was very yummy and then I had some broccoli on the side.
For dinner last night I had fish. I found this recipe on the bag of frozen Tilipia and it had everything that I could have. I browned some sweet onion in a little olive oil and then I topped it with the Tilipia, garlic, fresh basil and a fresh tomato and I threw the pan in the oven. I add a little sea salt and it was delicious. I served it on top of some whole wheat couscous and side of string green beans
I got on the scale this morningwhich I had much anticipated all week. I tried to remind myself that it didn't really matter what it said. I had done well and I was feeling great. The number was the same 148. I was slightly disappointed and of course had to jump on the scale several more time to make sure it was correct. When my husband wakes up I will have him take my measurements to see if there were any changes in those numbers. I will have been with TFF two week on Monday. I am lifting well and I have made all my works out and have followed the plan 100 % so I have to be ok with that an move on.
Have legs and cardio today and am certainly looking forward to my refeed meal tomorrow. I have the place pick out and what I am going to order. Can you tell I still love to eat?

You could be losing some Fat and gaining some muscle.

If your training felt a little eaiser, after nearly a week, like you could do the exercises for another 2 or 3 seconds, before that "I can do no more feeling" happened, it would be evidence to sustain my intial thought.

You just need to keep believing in yourself, and being proud of yourself.

Every new day is a step closer, to the culmination of a fantastic journey in life.

Don't come this far, then create self doubt, or go unduly stressing about little things. Reassure yourself and just keep being strong, and keeping your chin up.

Take it from me, you ARE doing BRILLIANTLY, and I am not in the habit of lying to someone to falsely reassure them of anything.

You really are doing so, so well, and you are no doubt making other people like me, want to feel pride for you, by being who you are and doing what you do.

GOOD LUCK with everything. You light up peoples lives. Don't let that brightness start to fade yeah.

:-) :-).

ignore that darn scale...LOL! I know that's easier said than done. How do you feel? how do your clothes fit?
I started a 40 day yoga & meditation Challenge/journey and decided that I would not look at the scale. Hard but it is freeing! You are doing so great!
