Wow! I can't believe it's been about two weeks since my last blog. Needless to say, I've been having a really tough time. I lose battles, but I am determined to win the war!
This last couple of weeks, I've been kind of down in the dumps. Not really depressed, just not very happy. I find that when I get in that kind of mood, I don't eat right and end up making bad choices. Last week was a disaster and I ended up gaining a pound. I didn't go to my WW meeting because I got swamped with work, everybody needing everything back now! I was staying up way too late working, struggling to keep my eyes open, so what did I do? I went to find something to eat. Really, bad idea. I had a hard time through the first three days of the week, but then refound my focus and stayed OP the rest of the week.
I went to WI this morning fully expecting another gain, but I must have done something right, because I lost 4.8 lbs (makes up for that pound last week). I was very excited. This puts my total weight loss at 25.4 lbs since January. I've thought about it and why maybe I lost. I'm thinking that maybe because I didn't totally beat myself up when I made the wrong choices, looked at as just a bump in the road, it helped me not feel like a failure and I was able to get back OP.
My goal this week is to remain OP all week and stay that way. Also, to get back to exercising! I did well for a while, but now have fallen woefully short in that category. This will work, I just have to work it.
