So I did super well this whole summer...I lost 25 pounds in about four months. But about two weeks ago, I got totally thrown off my routine. I just started a new job, my parents came to visit, I was in a local theater production that was putting on performances the whole week (which included four hour rehearsals a day leading up to it), trying to juggle school, and the list goes on.
I also have a bad knee, and since it's transitioning into fall, the weather has been setting it off. When I'm in pain, I tend to overeat. And lately I've been in a lot of pain.
That said, I kind of lost control and haven't been able to get back into my routine and have gained almost 5 pounds in the last 12 days. I keep telling myself that's not a huge deal. But it's still a setback and still super discouraging.
What's even worse is that I'm getting surgery on my knee in 2 days, so it's not like I can just get back up on the treadmill and work it off. I'm meeting with a personal trainer tomorrow to get some sort of regimen going for post-surgery, so hopefully that'll help.
All that to say...I can't be the only one...right? Everybody gets set backs, right? Or am I the only one who lies in bed at night telling myself that I can only drink water the next day to get back on track...or feeling like crap because I was doing so well for so long and then all the sudden the scale started tipping the other way.
That was my dramatic moment haha.
