Okay Ė so I admit Iíve had a bad couple days. I havenít been tracking consistently and I know I made some bad food choices (were all those potato chips really necessary, Martha?). Iíd 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 Iím 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 Iíve been hovering at or just over the 50 pounds lost mark and gaining 2.5 pounds means Iím back to 48 pounds lost.
Wouldnít 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 donít have to worry about that anymore! Unfortunately it doesnít work that way (she sighs).
SoÖ back to the grind and trying to lose those extra couple pounds...
