Tomorrow is my weigh in day.
I have mixed feelings about this weeks weigh in. I would be very excited about weight loss but I don't know how to face disappointment if I don't see any changes. Just let's see how much I've done on tomorrow's weigh in. Today I manage to drag myself to do Denise Austin's light workout. Light workout keep me energize and make me forget about eating.
