This week has been a weight loss roller coaster. It is interesting to watch myself desire to NOT tell people that I am trying to lose weight. I think in my head I would rather surprise people? Truthfully I wonder how scared I am that I won't succeed. I wonder if I have set my goal too high (it is still at the very top of a healthy BMI). I wonder if I can keep the goal... I have no reason to believe that I can't make it (I am down 13 pounds already, in a little over a month) - but it is discouraging to have spent the last two days feeling hungry and then weigh in a pound higher in 2 days. I wonder if I am snacking and not logging it? I fight the desire to not eat the allotted calories for the day in an effort to lose weight faster. Ugh. These are all the reasons they tell you not to weigh yourself every day.
I am going to make a commitment. I will weigh myself on Saturdays. Only on Saturdays. That is somewhat cheating because it means that I can weigh in tomorrow - but with my teaching schedule I think it is healthier to not weigh in on a school day. I don't want that to affect how I feel every day.
So there. I have been shy and not wanted to tell anyone I was on a diet. But now I am blogging. We'll see how that goes.
