OK, I need to get my head on straight about this. Yesterday I weighed in at x.8 pounds, and this morning when I got on the scale, I was thinking I really wanted to see the next full digit now, and then I was disappointed when I weighed x.2 pounds. Um, hello, that's still a 0.6 pound weight loss in one day. I know I'm still detoxing after a weekend of bad eating and obviously I'm not going to lose a half pound a day, but still... I was let down when I didn't see a lower number. Ugh. I need to get past that mentality, because clearly that hasn't gotten me far lately. 0.187 a day - or 0.2 since that's what my scale shows ;) - that's all I need to hit my goals. I should be elated if I see a loss larger than that, not beat myself up because it wasn't a full pound. Sheesh.

Instead of my usual EA Sports Active this morning, I threw in a Leslie Sansone Walking Away the Pounds DVD (a 4 mile walk, don't remember the name). I didn't have enough time to do the whole thing, but did three miles and was sweatin' almost the whole time. I think this is a good plan - 2 days EA then one day a DVD (EA tries to get you to take a "rest" day every third day anyway). We'll see how it goes!

What are these walking DVDs like? You're on a treadmill watching someone walking through some beautiful scenery? Or do you watch an instructor marching in place, or what?

I do have a vague recollection of looking at this walking DVD on Amazon, but I've gotten cynical of Amazon reviews, so I'd much rather hear the real story from a fellow blogger.

backless - Mr. Word Verification is using real words now. Now sure if it's supposed to be significant one way or another
