Well, week three started out great. I was walking and doing water aerobics like clockwork. However, when I got on the scale on Sunday, I gained .5 pounds! I reviewed my food diary and discovered that I had eaten several things when I ate out that had more sodium than I'm used to. I was bummed that I had let down my team. I spent the next 2 days drinking, drinking and drinking followed by exercise and careful eating. I had a doctor's appointment on Tuesday and my weight was down to 242!!! I felt so much better! I shouldn't let the number on the scale define my success!!!
My doctor made me feel really good and said that she was so proud of me. She wrote down the web address for Spark People and after she checks out the site, she'll start referring patients. So, week three all worked out for the best. God has a purpose for me and I have to trust that. The plan must have been for me to do exactly what I did so I could get my doctor to start referring to SP.
