Okay, I'm trying not to be frustrated, but I have to admit my true emotions that I am........
Today's weigh-in revealed a .5 lb. weight gain.
Since joining SP 3 weeks ago, I've been doing everything "by the book" - drinking 8+ glasses of water, exercising at least 5 days/week for 30 mins. or more, and staying within my calorie range at least 90% of the time.
BUT, I'm not going to dwell on this very MINOR setback. After all, it's ONLY 1/2 lb!!
Rather than stew in a depressive state this coming week, I've decided to set myself up with a new regimen, and will see how it goes:
First, the mindset:
I'll remind myself (like a mantra!) of how the lbs. have dramatically dropped for the first few weeks (11 lbs. in 3 weeks is a phenomenal amount for me!)
I'll remind myself that I'm building muscle (and muscle weighs more than fat)
I'll remind myself that I can still comfortably fit into clothes that I couldn't fit into before joining SP
I'll remind myself that I do feel better since joining SP, and health is more important than a number on the scale
I'm going to up the amount of fruits and veggies this week
I'm going to excercise a minimum of 45 mins. 5-6 days this week
I'm determined to make it. I know I can do this. I WILL win this battle!!!!
