Weigh Day Vol. 4
I really thought about not writing this update. It's hard to admit a fail, even a (relatively) small one. But I'm doing this to keep myself accountable, so here goes nothing.
First, the positive. Last week I actually did well. I was down 1.6 lbs for the week and closing in on 15 lbs lost total (I was at 14.8). That was great. Unfortunately, as the pattern has been going, bad week followed good again.
I have noticed that I save my extra points up for Sunday then would pig out, which I thought was a bad idea the day before weigh in. So, being super smart, I decided I'd use my extra points earlier in the week to avoid that problem. It started off great, except I didn't slow down the eating as I started running out of points. I don't think it helped that I was stressed out all week due to various things, and I am most certainly a stress eater. On Saturday, I made the mistake of eating before I had checked the point on food (always a bad idea). I ended up eating a cookie that was 12 points! Ugh. Then on Sunday we started with a brunch buffet and the day went downhill from there.
Long story short, I was up .9 lbs today. Ouch. It may not seem like a lot, but that's a hard fought pound, and a wasted week. All I can do is pick myself up and try again this week, so that's what I'm going to do. Here's hoping I'll be down the pound and then some next week.

Ug. I've had a bad weight week too, and we're coming up on a vacation so I'm super nervous. Proud of you for having the courage to talk about it, though. That is not easy! Good luck next week!ReplyDelete

Hope this week is better for you too! I just had a Starbucks latte and a chick-fil-a chicken biscuit (I reward myself on blood test days, lol) so I'm not sure that this week is going to go great for me, haha. Glad to have others walking along with me!Delete
