So I was up 1.4 lbs. Not freaking out. I have decided it's more about the anticipation of the weigh in that stresses me. I don't want to have to wait till 6 pm to weigh in. I think about it all day. I say get in early and get it over with. I love the leader I have, so I asked her if she led a meeting in the mornings....so I will be changing my weigh in day to Wed. We will see how that works. How much weight can I loose in 10 days instead of 7.....stayed tuned...lol
I feel ok about the gain. I weighed earlier in the day last week, and I decided yesterday that it was stupid not to eat very much till I weighed....at 6 pm. So I ate a good lunch and drank alot of water! I even had my usual after work snack of a fudgesicle...SF of course.
I wasn't as clean in my eating as I could have been. I am giving myself a break. Last week was hard, what with the stuff going on at work, I really wanted to eat my way through it. Plus it was a long holiday weekend. So all in all, I am going to count last week as a victory as far as a healthy lifestyle goes. I really increased my walking last week, when my knee would allow, so I felt good about that too. I am really no hurry to loose the weight, I just want to be able to "stay the course". For the long haul.
I bought that pair of 16 shorts last week, and I have yet to wear them. Not sure why I am choosing to wear too big clothes still. weird. Plus I have found I am looking at myself more in the mirror. Caring more about what I look like. It can be bad and good. It's nice to give a crap about what I look like again. The flip side is when I am focused on that I usually end up judging my body harshly. So I have been trying to be kind to myself. I am a work in progress.....always in progress, never finished!
Glad to be on the path, headed it the right direction..... Keep the mood and the food real.
