one pound-I think?

Well I think the scale might be saying that I've finally lost ONE pound. My scale has the needle that swings back and forth so unless its over 2 pounds its kinda hard to see any change. Anyway, I'm thinking is it just the needle or have I FINALLY started to break this plateau that I've been on for MONTHS? I hope its breaking. So I pulled out my food log and tallied everything up for the last 2.5 weeks. Taking into consideration my caloric intake(+), my exercise burns(-), and my # of calories supposedly needed just to sit on the couch and breath (-1400 per day per the internet), I have a negative of 5830 calories. Which, I believe one pound is like 3600 calories. So maybe, my one pound loss is true. But u should be able to lose 2 pounds safely in a week and its taking me 2.5 weeks to lose ONE pound. That just doesn't seem fair or right does it?! (And I'm not even really sure if I've lost a pound or not-darn needle). Anyway I'm beginning to feel like I'm on the right track-maybe my legs are getting thinner. But its my butt that's got to start shrinking in order to fit into my summer clothes! AND I'm daydreaming about the Easter candy I bought and I want to eat it----dumb dumb dumb to buy what I like, why did I succumb to the weakness yesterday???! However, I do have good news. I am supposed to bring a dessert to my in-laws on Sunday and I was going to make a cute shaped cake. But I'll eat it. So instead I am going to make pudding and jello desserts that I won't eat. I don't like jello and pudding. Getting smarter every day aren't I? :)
Went to T's school today and helped the kids color eggs. Went to W's gymnastics class-she is actually getting pretty good-very cute! (3.5 yrs old).
I am planning on doing 13 miles tomorrow to prepare for the run in May, so today I only walked on the treadmill this morning while the girls went to breakfast with daddy. Got 398 calories there, then got another 750 at the gym between 2 classes and 16min on the gem. Had a sub AGAIN, in both classes. Surprisingly, it went very well. I actually liked it and it was a decent workout. I think this teacher is happier now than she has been in the past about certain classes, so she does the class with a better attitude now and that helps everything. Anyway-so that was good.
Did you know that trail mix is 170 cal for 3 tablespoons! I was freaking out because when I eat it, I eat it by the handful and I'm thinking HOW MANY tablespoons must be in a handful!!?? Well, I measured it. Its only 2. So that was good news because I thought it'd be like 5 or 6, and at 170 a pop, that just blows your whole day doesn't it?
I'm off tonight to the race track to watch my hubby in the drag races for the first time, I'll fill u in on how it goes later.
