What I've been happy with is the scale. Considering a weekend out of town that included eating out a lot, I knew there would be a gain. So while it is up, it's not as bad as I feared it could have been. And I'm actually so tickled I've been able to keep under 160.
What I find frustrating is my current activity level and my aspiration--or lack thereof. The most exercise I get lately is a 20 minute walk break at work. That's so far off from where I was, someone who exercised 2 hrs 5 times a week. Work has slowly taken that away little by little every month that goes by, coupled with a heel spur causing significant pain in my foot, I just don't get the cardio in that I was able to. But, that doesn't excuse me from strength training--I have no excuse for that other than laziness. *suck*
