Weigh In Day....

Well I have gained back 3# from last weeks weight in, I am not sure how accurate that was as I weighed at the vets last week…man that sounds pathetic…LOL  but I did and was so happy with the number that came up I never thought about reweighing when I got home..my error for sure..then I had the rough last beginning of the week, out of 7 days – my calories were over 1500 for 3 of those days, and some of my food was breads….and I know how that affects me…so I am not surprised I am where I am at…so that’s that and I am back on track and focused…last three days have been fabulous…so I will chalk it up to a learning experience..at least it wasn’t more….and I think I will stay off the vets scale…LOL… 209 more words
