Ahhh, another Wednesday another weigh in. I had the best of intentions last week after maintaining. Well sometimes the best laid plans don't work out. I am up. Sniff, sniff. Two Whole Pounds. I am disappointed in myself, but honestly it wasn't a surprise. Like I said yesterday graduation cake is soooooo good. Over the course of the weekend I ate 3 pieces. In my defense all three of my pieces only equaled one piece for Gary, but he doesn't have to tell anyone when he gains a little here or there.
Although I am sad about the gain, I am already getting over it. I realized that having the sisterhood to turn to and help me keep accountability in my eating is a great way not to let one weeks slip ups because one month and then 6 months and then 20 extra pounds. So I haven't lost consistently yet, but the challenge isn't over and at least I am paying more attention to what I eat and working out much more consistently, and all of that together is giving me more self confidence that I can do this.
Sometimes, ok usually, I see the end result and get frustrated by the steps along the way to get there. But this being more challenging that I thought it would be I am seeing that it is the everyday choices that need to be better to make the end result a reality. I am still hanging in there, this week will not completely throw me off my game. I will get back up, brush myself off and try again.
On the plus side though I have been good about exercise the last 2 weeks. I have progressed to the 2nd section on my step aerobic tape and I have been walking a lot more and mowing the lawn, push mowing. I am feeling good and more powerful. And besides I am on vacation next week, so I have two weeks before I will be back here to share a weigh in. Imagine what I can do in two weeks. Look out scale, your going down!
Check out the rest of the sisters! Way to go everyone!
