Forget it!

So last night Bride ordered two large pizzas and we watched Curb Your Enthusiasm together after the kids were asleep. I flossed and brushed my teeth beforehand so that I would not be tempted, or at least so I would be tempted less, by the pizza. I didn't have my usual five-to-six-slices-of-pizza-I-didn't-need-at-nine-o'clock, plus I went running, remember? (Remember also yesterday morning after that run when I weighed in at 214?) So what was my weight this morning after this radical change in exercise and diet habits? 214. What the frick? I am SO not going to run the 2009 Twin Cities Marathon in under four hours.

Whenever we initiate change, even a positive one, we activate fear in our emotional brain. By taking small steps we don’t set off fight or flight, but rather keep us in the thinking brain, where we have access to our creativity and playfulness.

Keep up the positive work and don't get too caught up in the ups and downs - look at the stock ticker as your value continues to improve over time.

I think weighing yourself daily may tend to make you upset, frustrated or just become a nuisance. I would recommend a weekly weigh-in, as your body will fluctuate from day to day and it really doesn't make sense. Believe me.
