Yesterday, I mysteriously gained 1.5 lbs. I blogged about the self talk I used to prevent getting too discouraged. I read about the primary causes of weight gain while on program and realized that I needed to drink more water.
I spent all day yesterday sipping water. I didn't track it like I'm supposed to, but I know I had at least six cups, maybe more. I also made numerous trips to the bathroom.
Today, when I woke up, my entire body was sore and achy from yesterday's Zumba class and half hour in the weight room. I decided to weigh in, not expecting to see a change.
When the two pound loss registered, I rejoiced. Not only did the 1.5 lbs disappear, but it whisked away an additional half pound. Yay!
Since resuming SP in January, I have now dropped 25 lbs. I averaged 1.5 lbs a week, but in reality it was more like my experience this week; two steps forward and one step back. But the overall trend is down, so I'm still on the right track.
My next goal is to drop at least 20 lbs by August 31st. So I have May, June, July and August. Five pounds a month is doable. By then, I will be a solid size 14.
Patience, Patience, Patience. In time the grass becomes milk.
Onward and downward.
