Hard to believe we are already 7 weeks into this 10 week competition. Its been a pretty good week. I've eaten decent, gotten in some exercise so I figured I would see some progress on the scale today. Unfortunately the scale didn't agree and showed me with a gain of .8 lbs this week. Sure, its not a big gain, but I really was expecting a loss.
According to my FitBit report I averaged over 4700 steps per day and had a net calorie deficit of about 7000 calories for the week. I rode my bike 35 miles over the last week. All of this would make me think I should have lost something on the scale. That is not the case, though.
I know I am doing the right things. I know that the weight will come down as I get in more exercise and watch what I eat. I just wish it would be a bit faster since I am in the competition and there are only 3 weeks left.
I am going to stay the course. I know it works and I just have to trust the process. This Saturday will be a big test for me - the 30 mile ride for the Tour De Cure. Watch for a full report.
