Starting Weight: 242
Last Week: 229.7
This Week: 231.8
So, as you can see, I gained 2 pounds this week. I can't say I am surprised. I had a pretty tough week self control wise. It started out last Thursday with my husband's birthday. I decided to make it a cheat day and enjoy the birthday celebration. We went to Famous Daves and had some major bbq! Well, then we had so many leftovers, so we brought them home. And I couldn't let them go to waste, so I ate them. And then the weekend came and I ate a few things that I shouldn't have. And then throughout the week I really struggled to make good choices since we haven't been to the grocery store, and didn't have much in the way of supplies. So, basically everything just snowballed, and I got defeated and yesterday pretty much said screw it and binged on taco bell.
Yeah, it wasn't a good week. I didn't get healthy calories in, I didn't get my water intake in like I should. I basically gave up. So, I am not surprised at all to see my weight is up this week. In fact, I am mostly surprised that it wasn't higher!
But, that is one of the reasons why I am glad that I am documenting this journey here. Because, if I didn't have someone to answer to, I am pretty sure that this trend would continue. I would decide that it didn't matter, and the lack of self control might continue for another week. And then a month. And the next thing you know, I have gained back all the weight I lost. That's what happened when I gained back all 50 pounds I lost and then some!
But, instead, since I know someone was waiting to see my update here for weigh in Wednesday, I got on the scale, I accepted the number, and now I am moving forward so that hopefully next week I can come back here with better news. I can show a loss, and know that despite my slip ups this week, I can do this!
So to anyone who is reading this thanks for checking in and keeping me motivated. I am going to go and have breakfast, and start a week of good choices!
