Last week's weigh in demonstrated a 5 lb weight gain. How could that be?? Thinking back, there were some jellybeans involved, and a coconut egg or two - all of which were logged with a few days of higher than usual calories. But 5 lbs worth? Could a few jellybeans do that? Are they THAT evil?? Last night's weigh in resulted in a 4 lb loss. And that involved a few jellybeans, too!
The important thing is that I didn't let that scale get to me. I never felt like I fell down only to start the "oh well, might as well go for the gusto and overeat" thing. I kept focused on my goal and kept right on going, knowing that whatever caused what I kept calling a fluke (or the scale had it in for me because I'd been doing so good - LOL) was temporary and that I knew I was on the right track. First time I think I ever did that! I think having Sparkpeople in my life, reviewing bulletin boards and inspiring articles, moving more and feeling sorry for my self less, saved me from going down that path. I know it's the small steps but for me, this was a giant leap!
So for anyone who reads this, I applaud you and thank you for being here. This collective consciousness is the best thing ever!
