You Lose Some, You Gain Some
Wednesday, August 11, 2010
Things were actually going pretty well since I started making healthy changes (i.e. dieting, only hopefully more long-term). I lost 4 pounds, but it took me three weeks.
Then, for a couple of days I allowed myself to eat more than usual, especially for a barbecue, when I skipped my 100 cal. pudding cup to try all the desserts. :d Looking back, I could have limited myself better, even if I couldn't avoid it entirely.
The next day I weighed myself, and I was more than I started at! I panicked. I was pretty consistent that day, but at the end I had a big piece of one of those deliciously killer ice cream pies.
Finally, this morning, I decided that it was time to try again, no matter what I weighed. I found out I was 2.5 lbs. down from where I started, 1.5 up from where I was. It was also frustrated because I had exercised in two recent days, so I thought that should have counted for something. How can I lose anything when it's so easy to gain back?
But I'll keep trying, and I'll see what happens. Even if the weight isn't coming off easy, eating right puts my mind at ease, and exercising feels really good. I'll get there eventually.
