I was really expecting to be disappointed when I weight in this morning. I have not done well in terms of willpower this week. There’s the Carl’s Jr binge, the weekend I couldn’t even log, and Wednesday’s cheating. I was going to post my food diaries, but some of them are blank, some aren’t completed, some just spell it out.
I can see now what people mean about doing Slim Fast full time, and how it’s a lot harder. I feel like this diet is requiring a lot of willpower to stay on. It also really doesn’t leave a lot of room for normal life. This weekend I should do okay on Saturday. We have one (maybe two) BBQ’s on Sunday.
I have not been super good about exercising, either. I need to figure out how to make that a priority. I can go walk by myself at night, or we can all go somewhere were my husband and son can play while I go walking. Or, you know, I could actually exercise at home.
So, anyway, on to the weight in. When I got on the scale this morning, I prepared for the worst.
To my shock, I had lost a pound. It makes me think that if I would have done well this week I could have lost a lot more!
This is worth celebrating.
I started this journey January. I had lost a total of ten pounds, then really fell off the wagon. It’s taken me almost a month of being back to being serious to get back down to the weight I was.
This week’s loss puts me at my lowest weight since I’ve started. I am now down 11 pounds total. I feel like this lights even more of a fire, makes me more energized about doing it. From here out it’s not having to redo what I did already, it’s all fresh road. I like that idea.
