And what did you learn?
The question asked by parents or teachers when a child does something wrong and learns a lesson from it.
This weekend was my good friend's bachelorette party and bridal shower, and being one of her bridesmaids, I was with her the whole day Saturday.
As part of this journey, I've always said that I wanted to be able to celebrate and live a normal life, not be so strict that I was constantly reminding myself of rules and not having any fun. Well, we went out this weekend and had a great time, and I celebrated and enjoyed the bridal shower and bachelorette party, but Sunday morning, the scale looked back at me and said "And what did you learn?" in a nice 189.6 staring back at me. After being at 184.6 Saturday morning.
I know I didn't gain 5 pounds overnight, but now I have to work harder just to get back to that 184.6 rather than being that much closer to my goal weight.
It's very frustrating trying to balance having fun and living a normal life, and being truly 100% dedicated to weight loss. I love food, and I'm always going to. I just need to try and minimize the celebrations for the rest of the year until I reach goal weight. Once there, I know that I can stay within 5-10 pounds of that weight as long as I work hard. But I just need to focus for right now. If I don't I'll probably be in this 180 range for the rest of my life. There are worse things I know, but I just want to say I reached my goal.
Anyways, drinking water and working out all week and hoping to see that 184 again on Saturday when I weigh in.
Hope you're having a good week Sparkfriends!
