I was so happy to see that in the last month I lost six pounds. I was especially happy and surprised that I lost that much since the holidays were in the middle of the last month. Now I am not so happy. When I weighed myself on Saturday, I had gained back one pound. I know, one pound isn't much, but when you have more than 100 pounds to lose, gaining back one pound can be quite a shock. Seeing that I gained back that one pesky pound was a shock since my body felt like it had lost more weight. So what is going on here? Is it my scale? Or, is it my body playing tricks on me?
The last two days I have felt like going to the store to buy chips and salsa, then sit and enjoy. Am I subconsciously wanting to sabotage myself because of the one pound gained? Am I mourning the loss of the happiness felt when I lost six pounds in a month because of the one pound gained? I do not know, but I can tell you that so far I have not gone to the store to buy chips and salsa. However, I cannot promise that I will not go to the store to buy them. They are constantly on my mind every waking moment.
