*keeps fingers crossed*

I haven't worked out at all this week, and I did a bad thing this morning--I cheated and ate a chocolate chip cookie. Darn it! I had mentioned to Kelly yesterday that I really wanted a chocolate chip cookie, so what does she do? She brings home some of those chilled dough ones and makes them! No! I didn't realize this last night because I'd already gone to bed when she made them.

However, I stopped at one. It was my little treat, and then I dutifully took the cookies off the pan, put them away, and ate the rest of my breakfast. That's a big thing for me, because I have a *huge* sweet tooth.

Anyway, I stepped on the scale this afternoon, and I appear to have lost a few pounds. Enough to put me at 59 pounds down! I started crying right there on the scale, because it felt like I was gonna be stuck at 55.5 *forever*! Now, that's an unofficial weight, since weigh in isn't until tomorrow and for some reason I always weigh more in the morning than I do in the early evening (I think it's from fluid or something, because when I wake up I always have Angelia lips and things like that, which I don't have any other time during the day.)

Anyway, the only reason I can think of for no working out=losing weight is that I never really ate my activity points. But without them, I'm eating more of the points I was allowed for the day (whereas before, I was always under them) so maybe that has something to do with it.

Or maybe my body's just being stupid. I dunno. But anyhow, I'm gonna try to get back into the gym and make it a goal to eat half of my activity points when I earn them, and we'll see if that makes a difference.

I also wonder if maybe I've been stepping on the scale wrong. I have these little metal areas where I'm supposed to put my feet, but I didn't really step *exactly* on those before (because they're more for the fat monitor part of the scale.) I was more concerned about not leaning forward on the scale--I remember when I was reading Tom Arnold's book, and he said he and Roseanne used to fool the Slim Fast people during weigh-ins by leaning forward on the scale. So I was less obsessed with where I put my feet and more about not leaning forward. But now I'm watching where I put my feet--see if that makes a difference.

    I thought working from home would be slow, but this week it feels like more people are looking for insurance than ever! *Whew*! Not the first thing…

    I had to break the work from home order yesterday and venture into the office. I always thought working from home would be great and parts of it…

    I can't remember if I was still updating on LJ back then, but if big change was I bought a house back in 2016. It's way on the other side…
