Remember a couple of blogs back…
“Some weeks you may have a surprisingly big loss. “Wow! This is great.” You feel fantastic. Next week you may not lose anything or may even gain a small amount. Just keep being honest with yourself about what and how much you are eating and keep good records, because over time you will lose weight.”
It turns out this is one of those weeks when I gained a little + 1.2 lbs. Disappointed?-Yes. Discouraged?-No. I have been tracking everything I eat, exercising daily and I have stayed on plan with my points. This last week I have not used any weekly extra points or any of the extra activity points I have recorded.
What this means, I just have to stay with the plan. Even with the one week gain my average per week loss is 2.1 pounds per week for the last three weeks. Now another week without a loss and I might have to re-examine how I measure and record my food, because it is important to be honest with yourself.
I have been through this before. Losing weight is not the problem for me. The problem has been establishing a life style that would insure me staying healthy. That is why I am taking the approach that there is no finish line for me in regards to this issue.
This is a journey for the rest of my life.
