I had a gain this week and it's certainly not my first. I was warned that it was only going to get harder the less weight I needed to take off but it doesn't make it any less frustrating. This week was especially upsetting because I really thought I did well. I tracked every thing I ate. I worked out. I didn't make poor choices. So when I walked in to weigh in, I was almost giddy thinking I lost. But when I found out I gained, I was thoroughly pissed. I usually know when I've gained and why. Arrrrrrg.
Anyway, I took extra time after my meeting to speak to my leader and we went over my tracker and a few of my habits and routines. She is always so supportive and helpful and really gave me the perspective I need to get through this week. She says "it's not about the scale" blah, blah, blah. Deep down I know it's about where I've come from and how amazing I feel, but I'm not finished. I still have goals and I desperately want to reach them. I will say, these past few months have really made me humble. I now know how much people struggle with their weight loss and how irritating the darn roller coaster is.
I am changing a few things and we'll see how it goes...hopefully my next blog will be filled with exclamation points and smiley faces. For now I'll just take it week by week, day by day and try to get back to basics and be the hard core weight watcher I know I can be! (There's an exclamation point)
