I should probably consider myself lucky that my weight loss has been within the 0.5-2lbs/week recommended average. I know I should focus on the positives that I’ve accomplished on my weight loss journey. That’s what any “glass-half-full” person would do. But I’m too disappointed in myself to be that girl right now. I couldn’t even come up with a catchy blog title.
Last week was a gain.
I wasn’t surprised.
I knew why.
Christmas, cookies, chocolate, wine, seeing red.
This week I was hoping for a different outcome but…
WI#44 = +1.4 lbs
Total = -46.8 lbs
I know it seems silly to cry over a number on the scale. Weight loss is an emotional journey. There will be highs and lows. But it doesn’t make it any less easy to see that plus.
And the worst part? Seeing the gain on my new monthly picture. That is a first.
I will not allow that to happen for the next one. I’ve come too far in my weight loss journey to take anymore steps back. So I made a drastic change today. I went to a Weight Watcher meeting. I left feeling a renewed sense of determination.
This binging stops. NOW.
