Okay – so I admit I’ve had a bad couple days. I haven’t been tracking consistently and I know I made some bad food choices (were all those potato chips really necessary, Martha?). I’d be far more willing to forgive myself except that a couple of bad days managed to equal 2.5 pounds on the scale this morning. Water weight, salt, etc. etc. I know of these things rationally. Rationally enough that I’m not even putting it in my weight tracker. (I only record my weigh in once a week, though I may check it more often). Irrationally, I am frustrated and mad at myself. Especially because I’ve been hovering at or just over the 50 pounds lost mark and gaining 2.5 pounds means I’m back to 48 pounds lost.
Wouldn’t it be nice if weight loss was something that you only had to do once? Hey, I got to my goal weight! Check the box. Move on. Glad I don’t have to worry about that anymore! Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way (she sighs).
So… back to the grind and trying to lose those extra couple pounds...
