I was hoping for success today

Friday, August 05, 2011

Friday my day to weigh in.

6:30am scale showed I was up 3 pounds, I wanted to cry! Donut fiasco earlier this week, blah, blah, blah.

Feeling really bad about myself through breakfast this morning.

Then something happened. I stopped talking to myself and told myself I was awesome! I told myself I have the skills to turn this around. I had a bad week (maybe a bad month, I have been in a plateau).

I KNOW how to fix this. Go back, look at your nutritional tracking, compare it with weeks past. What are you going to do differently next week?

What are you proud of? I have exercised a lot this week! Next week I will exercise more, 30 minutes a day is my goal.

I will do this because I know my fellow Sparkers have my back.

Thank you to all of you whom I have never met but who cheer me on at every turn. I AM MAKING A BETTER ME!

I am successful today because I had a huge set back (at least in my mind) and I did not let it take me off the cliff. I ate a super healthy breakfast (cranberry oatmeal, my favorite!) and I packed a super healthy lunch!

    Something to keep in mind, as Jasperann noted, is that sometimes we pick up water weight - I have this kind of sudden weight gain just as my period starts and it drops off just as suddenly when the period is over - IF I don't get discouraged and give up on the regular eating and exercise program.

    Either way, I know you'll get past this and will ultimitely have the success you are striving for. Take care!

    Well the good news is that to gain three pounds in a week it takes way more than a couple doughnuts. You would have need to eat 10500 above what your body needs to even maintain your weight, to have gained three pounds. So it is very likely that you are just holding onto some water. Happy Day!! I'm glad you didn't let it derail you. emoticon

    Wow! I love what you are saying here. I also try not to beat myself up when I make mistakes, and I think it makes a huge difference. Keep up the great attitude. You are an inspiration to us all.
