Facing the scales after vacation

I kind of knew where the scales would be this morning by my going to bed weight and I could tell I would see a loss in the morning from before I left for vacation, but still, that morning step on the scale was initiated by a sigh.

So, from the start of vacation to now I lost 1.6 pounds. That means for the month of July I lost 4.2 pounds. That is like half of what my next lowest weight loss month was. Of course, vacation wasn't a help and neither was weird eating while my kids were sick and gym time being thrown off a bit with sick kids too. But, all in all, I cannot complain. 4.2 pounds is still about a pound a week and my hope was to lose a pound a week from the beginning and anything above and beyond that was icing on the cake. I can't lose that perspective because I'm doing well - period.

Today is also measurements day and like I told my husband, I could tell where my losses were coming from - my hips and bust, but not the waist. I felt a bit more straightish and yep, that's what's happening.

Going to the gym later today to jump start August!
