No spender? not so much....

February 4th, 2009 at 03:23 am

I thought I would have a no spender today...and then went off and forgot my food at home. Luckily, there was a little suprise party breakfast for a new dad at work, so I had some fruit and a little coffee.

Then, I had a long talk with my boss about some changes we are making. I am taking on another responsiblity..which means another possible raise..and a busier workload...but I will be transferring more of my duties to an assistant. My head is literally spinning from all the changes--so, I decided to go to a quiet restaurant and just contemplate. I ordered grilled fish and water...$10.99 + $2 my spending today was $12.99.

My job has changed so rapidly this year. I am excited about the things I oversee..but the learning curve is HUGE. So, after this semester, I am putting school on the back-burner. I will have enough on my plate with everything at work.

I stepped on the scale today. Stupid said I only lost 1/2 lb...but I can see how much better things are, it must be broke.

Tomorrow should be a no-spender...if I dont forget my lunch again.

Then...Thursday and Friday I am off for a fun weekend with friends. WOO HOO

    i think the scale companies and the weight loss companies are in cohoots!

    i think you're lost fat and put on muscle. that would explain things fitting looser and the scales being not as light.

    Last night, on "The Biggest Loser", Jillian Michaels (one of the trainers) was rolling her eyes about the whole "you didn't lose weight because you gained muscle" excuse. (her words, not mine) Same with the "oh you haven't lost any weight but you have lost inches." I took it from her reaction, anyone who tells you either is just blowing smoke up your.....well, you know. Their mantra is "the scale doesn't lie."

    Oh the scale lies...but when you need to lose a couple hundred it doesn't lie much.

    Having not met you Thrifty I can't say anything about what you do or do not need to lose.

    Though I can guess, if it fits better you are doing great.

    Course my opinion might be worthless, I own no scale, so I obviously put little stock into it.

    I like Jillian (though I've not been watching the BL since the fall premiere in 2008) but I think that is bs. The scale may be telling the truth, but it doesn't tell the whole story. There are so many factors that weigh in (heh!) into the numbers on the scale. Ignore the scale! Focus on the clothes fitting better! Big Grin
