Weigh-In Wednesday

Moderation, shmoderation...

I BLEW IT this week!!

I'm so unimpressed with myself. I had such a great week the week before, losing two pounds right before "that time of the month" ~ an almost unheard-of accomplishment! ~ and now this: a gain of 0.2.

Now, I know a fifth of a pound is very little. And if I was 15 lbs lighter, I'd be content with how I was maintaining. But I'm not IN the maintenance stage yet! I still want to lose a MINIMUM of 14 lbs before I'm going to be content and accept that weight as my body's "happy place." And even then, it will only be if, after several weeks of sticking with the plan, I notice no real changes anymore.

But I'm not there yet.

And nothing happened last week that hadn't happened the week before. Nothing really out of the ordinary. Just some out-of-control eating, plain and simple. Eating when I shouldn't have because I wasn't hungry.

Dang it.

Well, .2 lbs is not enough to get me depressed. A little disappointed, yes. And DEFINITELY DISGUSTED!!! Which means I've given myself the necessary swift kick in the pants, and I WILL be a success next week, despite the fact that we'll have company for the weekend.

Oh yes I will.

I just want you to know you are an encouragement to me! No, not because you "blew it" but because you are honest to say that you blew it! I'm on week for of the Woman of Moderation study and am loving it! I'm seeing that food is an idol for me... and am making my way back to God. But I "blow it" so often too! Thanks for being real!

I had a week like that too...I will lose what I gained this week, and be back on track to lose even more. I know you will too! You are already doing so well. I'm here for you! :o)

Tammi, you are doing an amazing job. You'll have these weeks, and you just have to buck up and move along!! You'll do much better this week, I just know it :)

Well, at least your weekend company is aiming to be a SUCCESS too, so we'll make good choices together!

Whoa. Hold on just a second. Okay, you have been a ROCK STAR for weeks now, right? An "off" week (which 0.2 is not totally an "off" week) is EXPECTED. Your body is just saying, "let me think about this". So, even if you had some bad food moment, this still could have happened. So, IF that's where you went wrong, okay, fine, you can fix it. But do not be disappointed in yourself, just give your body a little bit of a break, refocus and next week will be another fabulous week. I'm sure of it. :o)
