Weigh In - What?

Ok I am starting to believe no matter what I do I will never figure this weight loss out. I went to weigh in today and low and behold I lost 4 lbs! WHAT how is that possible - after not working out for almost a week and all the bad stuff (trust me all really bad) I ate how did this happen? I am just out of words.........

I have set some new goals for 2009

Loss 40 lbs
Play Softball in the Spring
More Rockclimbing
Take up Running (this is a HUGE one for me)
Work on my self esteem
White Water Rafting

I am sure there will be plenty more but for now these are the ones I want to work on. What are your goals for 2009?

Here's something that might explain:

You've seen a lot of news, right, about cortisol, the stress hormone?
One of the things it does is makes weight loss really tough. (It's caveman logic still carried around by your DNA- stress signals the body to store fat, because stress, to cavemen is an uncertain food source!)

So, if you're less stressed, like taking a few vacation days, you might get ahead with your weight loss goals, even if you're not hovering over your diet like a hawk!

Best of luck in the new year, Mara!
