That’s how I felt this morning when I stepped on the scale. Was I blindsided by my weigh in? No, but it still hurts to see the number on the scale go up from last week.
Starting Weight: 234.6 lbs
Last Weigh-in: 222.4 lbs
This Weigh-in: 224.6 lbs
Difference: +2.2 lbs
Total Weight Loss: -10.0 lbs
I attribute the gain to a few things:
- Not tracking my points every day
- Eating too much puppy chow (muddy buddy) Sunday night
- Way too many office cookies over the course of the week (3 Monday and 4 Tuesday)
Things I did right:
- I tracked 4 out of my 7 days
- I worked out 5 times this week
- I turned down sweets every day after Tuesday
This morning I woke up bright and early to start off week 10 on the right foot.
I worked out on the Arc Trainer for 30 minutes and then spent 20 minutes doing abs and stretching.
For breakfast I had 2 eggs and 1 Morningstar veggie sausage patty, as well as a large cup of coffee.
As I’ve said before, the next two weeks are going to be difficult. They just are. I would love to lose weight during that time but the reality is, it might not happen. Instead, my goal is to stay focused on my goal, to make wise choices, and to not allow myself to get out of control as tempting foods come my way.
I also want to remember the list I made 2 weeks ago about what’s keeping me at my current weight. These things not only keep me at my current weight but they can also cause weight gain.
I know that over the next two weeks eating when I’m not hungry will have to be controlled along with sweets and desserts.
Week 9 wasn’t my finest, but I want to stay positive and to remember that it is in fact the holiday season.
