It has taken me some time to collect myself and write this blog after last week’s weigh in. It took me 4 weeks to lose 1.6 lbs and only 1 week to gain 4 lbs. This is one of those times when I feel like I am failing to hold the line. Last week I finally reached my 10% goal.
We spent a long weekend in Dallas and I come back and I have gained 4 lbs. I think the feeling I am dealing with is more a sense of being lost.
Everything I ate I wrote down. There were days I went over my daily allotment, but I did not use up all my extra points for the week. I didn’t walk as much as I have in the past, but I played golf two days and I made an effort to walk more on the golf course. I passed up food choices I would have jumped on in the past. I ate bites of things I would have never shared in the past. I just can’t believe that a few days of not being perfect led to plus 4 lbs.
I have to say I feel like I lost. Four weeks shot to hell in one weekend. Is this the way the rest of my life is going to be…struggle for weeks and never be able to have a time to relax?
Oh how I hate having to work to undo poor choices. Nothing left to do now but to suck it up and re-focus.
